It is heart-warming to see many people spreading the light at a time when it is much needed.

Football games are currently on hold in Scotland and Nairn County Football Club published the following statement on their website:

With regards to our fans and the community as a whole. Well we are not playing football for the foreseeable future, so if we can help on a Saturday with anyone in self isolation, be it picking up your shopping, getting your prescription to you or even just walking the dog, drop us a message or give us a call and we will sort something out for you.

Nobody knows how long this virus will be with us, it could be a long haul, but we want you to know that your Club is with you. You have supported us, now its our turn to do the same for you.

Ian Finlayson, Secretary, Nairn County FC

A very big thank you to all the people who are working tirelessly to keep everything moving forward.

If you have a positive story to share, please let us know in the comments and help spread a little more light.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. That last picture is stunning! Holy cats. As for something good…a Facebook friend works with disabled adults. This is not a job he can do from home, so to work he goes, knowing his risk of contracting the coronavirus is very high. But he goes anyways because those adults need him. A hero, wouldn’t you say?

      1. Cheers Xenia. Sorry to be so erratic in my reading. I keep losing track.
        But I still do enjoy your magnificent photos and haikus and all.
        Be well, my friend.

  2. Beautiful photos (I had no idea you’re having snow up there, still) and a wonderful message and initiative of the Football Club! In my world, parks and campgrounds are closing and people shop for way more than they need (in my humble β€œliving in a 19ft camper opinion).

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Liesbet, we still have plenty of snow on the higher ground and it normally stays until well after Easter. Hope you, Mark and Maya are safe and well and can find a way to adapt as travel and camping restrictions continue to evolve πŸ™πŸ’œ xxx
