WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS
I don’t even know where to begin with this e-mail. What a crazy and scary time we are all going through at the moment.
My emotions have been all over the place the last few days. Last week I started to realise how crazy everything was going, when the shops were displaying empty shelves and if you were like me, didn’t panic buy, I thought ‘OMG what is going on’.
I started to feel this horrible gut feeling I just couldn’t shift. Anyway, then last week Thursday got the E-mail from the school. One of my daughters is in year 6 and this was her last year at primary school and was preparing herself to leave school to move to secondary school.
Anyway, I got this email saying that they were going to say their goodbyes to them and unfortunately they won’t have a leavers presentation they worked so hard for or a prom etc. Well, I just got so overwhelmed with this email that I just couldn’t stop crying and felt so sad for all the year 6 leavers. My daughter was in absolute bits and then the last day on Friday at school came. All the parents, teachers and pupils were crying.
I was trying so hard to hold my tears and emotions back to stay strong for my daughter but I just broke and just couldn’t hold back my tears. We’ve all cuddled and cried. But all the parents promised them once we get through this, that we will be holding a big prom party for them so they don’t miss out completely. I know a lot of you have been going through the same thing. Then all the uncertainty. Then also trying to decide what is best to do.
As being self-employed and working for yourself, do you carry on or do you close?
However, after the government's announcement on Friday afternoon, I made the heartfelt decision to close the doors to my clinic until we get through the other side. This wasn’t an easy decision. And I’m still sobbing as I’m writing this. It was the hardest thing I had to do. As over the last nearly 9 years, I’ve worked so hard to get where I am today and that is all thanks to you. But Your Safety and my family’s safety has to come first. And I just want you all to be safe. Even though I’m a total clean freak lol, I just didn’t want to take the risk.
I’m missing you all terribly. Miss our laughs and our chats. Not only are you my clients but over the years you have become very dear friends to me and I hold a very special place for you all in my heart.
But this is not the end and I cannot wait until the day comes when I can open my doors again to you all.
I do apologise in advance there may be a few tears when I see you, as I’ve missed you all so much but I’m counting down for that day to come. And now that we are also in lockdown I will be offering FaceTime consultation or if you just have any questions or need some advice on anything. It doesn’t have to be beauty related at all. I’m here for you all.
I will try and do a Live Facebook coffee morning next week. Possibly on Wednesday but I will announce this on my page. I thought it would be nice to still keep in touch that way. Let me know how you’ve been coping with what you have been up to etc. Any tips to stay sane lol. I just thought it would be nice.
Also, I would like offer you all my help. If you need anything at all and if I can do anything, it doesn’t matter how small or how big, please do not hesitate at all to message me. We can get through this together.
Anyway, I just wanted to say a big thank you to all for all your support you have given me over the years and now. Also some of the lovely messages I have received and a big thank you for the ones who have brought vouchers of me.
Please please stay safe. I love you all from the bottom of my heart and I will see you on the other side.
Keep in touch
All my love and big hugs to you all
