Manic March became Mournful March within just a few hours!
Last Monday, 16th March, I was determined to still run the networking breakfast due to take place the next day at 8am. It was the 6th of 10 events I’d been working on – hence the month being known as Manic March.
I’d also featured in the Time to Shine edition of Cheshire Life, been offered a slot in Living Edge, and been nominated for Cheshire Woman of the Year Award. So it began as the best month to date…
And yet it all came to a crushing full stop at about 5pm that evening as I watched the news and heard that everything was coming to a stand still.
I just burst into tears! Not only for myself, but for my friends, children and connections – where would this leave us?
I had to immediately cancel everything – sending emails and text messages in such a flurry, whilst moping up the tears!
And on top of that, as Chairman of my local musical theatre group, I had to announce to our members that our show due to be performed in April was postponed and all rehearsals cancelled with immediate effect.
A bloody hard day, that was.
