There are so many to choose from. I particularly like pictures of her with her family. This is one of my favourites with her great-grandchildren from just a few years ago. The purse!

Further to Lilbitkm’s post, we too have been told to swab cheeks, throat, then nose with the home rapid tests. Perhaps try that with your...
