Well, it's been 6 months since I have written..

Only today I noticed that I haven't written anything on my blog for 6 months. Out of sight and out of mind it seems. The COVID-19 thing has turned the entire word on its head.

And we at Spirit of Life have been impacted just a little too.

During this pandemic the Boutique now closes one hour earlier each day. But apart from that it is business as usual. The shop is sanitised several times a day and masks are mandatory in the fittings rooms for both us and you. And yes, we will supply you with your own new mask when you visit.

You cannot be too careful!

On a sad note, I read today that Kelly Preston has lost her battle with breast cancer after 2 short years. Kelly was John Travolta's wife and this must be a huge emotional upheaval for John and family. Their son Jett died at only 16 in 2009.

Of course the media always report on these sad events that befall the stars and A listers. But breast cancer is sadly a fact of life for many women all over the world. Fortunately as more research is being done all over the world including some first rate work here in Australia, survival rates are going up.

October is breast cancer awareness month, so if you get the chance attend a fund raising event for breast cancer research or even just give a $5 donation, please put your hand in your pocket.  Breast cancer touches so many lives. Those who are diagnosed are somebody's daughter, somebody's sister, somebody's partner or mother. it spreads far.

Breast cancer has struck in my own family, in Mark's family and Mark also lost a past partner to this insidious disease.

Dig deep, find $5 for breast cancer research.

On a positive note new stock lines are coming to the shop, stay tuned and I will get them up here as soon as I can.
