Lockdown Looms

With lockdown looming, Lothian Life is going to have a little holiday.

We’re following the rules and staying at home, and because everyone else is doing likewise, we’re not going to have much to share or report. However, we will be back in the autumn.

Who knows – we might even start to think about an all new singing and dancing website. But we might not!

Meanwhile, thanks so much for your readership, your contributions, and see you on the other side – or at least on the journey to this ‘new normal’.

Stay safe. Take Care.
