My thanks Lisa of Lismore Paper too for creating this new design for The Huge Hug Club.

The – C – Crisis or C19 as l tend to call it – is causing a great deal of anxiety and worry for people –  l can understand that – we all can.

I shall be awarding hugs to my readership once/twice a week for as long as they are needed. As l travel around the blogs l follow reading the tales and the stories, the diary entries and so on – you can judge how people are reacting to this by how they write or sadly in some cases …. don’t.  l am aware who is alone and feeling isolated, or had a bad week as well as those already missing yesterday.

So my philosophy is simple – everybody needs a hug!

Now if anyone wants a hug just let me know below in the comments section and next time around you will receive said hug.

Everyone loves a hug and everyone deserves a hug.

There is a great deal of beauty to the hug ….


Reduce stress

They can keep your immune system healthy

Boost your heart health

Make you happier

Reduce your anxiety and fears

Can make the monsters go away

Reduce pain

A Form of communication – as in ‘just to say hello’


For Laughing To!

Because we all need to laugh!

For Listening To

Because we need to remember to relax

Lyrics included for those to sing along to!

For Philosophy To Read!

Because we need perspective!


“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

Mahatma Gandhi


“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”

Dalai Lama XIV


“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.”

Audrey Hepburn

      …………. by the way you are up for The Hello [Howdy] at 6.15am UK time – so it’ll be there for you later on 🙂

  1. 🙂 Rory, in this instance, it is going to be a virtual hug due to the fact that physically hugging someone during these times would potentially spread COVID-19.

    I truly hope that you are safe in you part of the world and thank you for spreading positivity via your WordPress blog.

    1. Hey good morning Renard here’s wishing you a lovely day when the Saturday swings in properly for you 🙂

      Yes, we are left to virtual hugs but as Socrates once said … “Dude, a virtual hug is way better than a swift kick in the nuts!” I have always remembered that quote from one of my mentors ha ha … keep well my friend 🙂

          1. Cheers mate. Won’t be doing a short story today busy working on a second revision for a short story I did over at scribophile. But have posted a sunday rhyme not long ago if you were up for a poem

  3. hahaha this was hilarious. The pets actually behave this way? This is so funny. Enjoyed it. I love the two pigs cuddling image. Super cute.

  4. Thank you so much Rory, I really needed this after today (post will indeed follow eventually), and I did indeed miss it yesterday. Bless you for the thought, Hugs back.
