Do not die of shock I have got my monthly review out on the first of the next month, maybe I will keep doing it, do not hold your breath though. So we have now completed 7 months of 2020, meaning only 5 left until we reach 2021 which can not be any worse (I hope). This month has been a holding month personally, as I hold my breath on how the easing of lockdown happens.
