The groatie buckie arrived 

3 Nov 2020

I am now the happy custodian of a groatie buckie. It arrived in a little envelope written in children’s handwriting. It was wrapped in paper along with a little message of friendship and hope. I’m smiling from ear to ear. A good story. A great experience. A friend I do not know.   


It’s our half term and we are in a semi lockdown where I am. No visiting in others homes, no car sharing, no restaurants or pubs open, no more than 6 people from 2 households can meet outdoors. I have managed to stay in my little family bubble and driven to stay at the beach just down the coast. I’m within my own health board so its allowed. The sand is right outside the front door and I realise I’m in heaven. 


Tomorrow, I’ll walk on the sand and find a little pebble or shell and post it back to my new friend. It won’t be a good luck charm but it will be sent from my part of the world to theirs with good wishes and friendship. 


Keep writing your own headlines.
