A big Happy Mothers day to all the amazing mums out there today! My own mum is thankfully safely isolating/social distancing at the moment and there are worse places to do so than her beach front caravan in County Down. Would love to be there but glad she is well and Facetime does the trick for now!
As for Raashi – the wonderful mum to our now 3 beautiful children (and we can’t forget about the dog Fergie), we’ll be doing our best to spoil her today about the house, maybe enjoying some of this sunshine in the garden! 😎
When the kids were asleep yesterday I took the opportunity to make the most of the sunshine myself and make a #stayathomechallenge:
So for a bit of fun/something to do while isolating I challenge our patients/friends/family to beat that – or of course tempt me to any other #stayathomechallenge !
As for our work/practice you may have noticed our updates regarding the coronavirus during the week. Following government guidance we have decided to go to an emergency service only, operating from 9-1pm Monday – Friday. Dentistry is mainly ‘aerosol generating’ and we have been rightly advised not to carry out such procedures. So until further notice please bear with us while we work through our list of appointments and let everyone know what needs to be rescheduled. As a reminder we are also offering a free WhatsApp video call with our dentists for advice only so please make use of this if required: 07469764766.
Tonight one of our friends Stuart is organising a group zoom call for an inaugural social distancing quiz which i’m really looking forward to 😆. Team Sherlockdown Homes and Dr’s Watson are ready and primed 🕵️♂️
It does seem inevitable that we will follow Europe and go into lockdown at some point, which is a scary thought. So I hope everyone stays safe and well, and let’s hear more of the social distancing ideas or #stayathomechallenge to keep all our spirits up and help protect our NHS!
With all the retired doctors, nurses, medical students and companies capable of making ventilators being drafted in it’s clear the threat to our health service is severe. It’s heartbreaking and deeply concerning to see the situation in Italy at the moment too. So we all need to do our part to help each other out. There is talk that dental teams might be asked to help out in the wider NHS where possible in the coming weeks – team TWDC are ready💪🏼!
Please Stay home where possible and stay safe all ❤️
