"I agree.  I had a bit of a cry when I went shopping and realised I was only shopping for one.  Also because there was no need to buy Brian's favourite foods.  As you say, it's the little things that affect us"

"Good for you Athena. It's so important to stay positive and enjoy cooking & eating. We should be thankful we can still do these things. It's too easy to wallow, isn't it. Hugs to you ☺"
