Here we go again!!
The rules changed again on Monday 14th September, meaning we can only meet in groups of 6. As a family of 6 already, this means we cannot see anyone else.
As the week has gone, more and more of the UK has been entering a stricter lockdown, especially up North and the papers of full of news of an earlier than expected second wave.
It certainly isn’t looking good.
Here is our week in pictures……..
Sunday 13th September
A much needed day off for me, so I made the most of it and took Sebby to see his Godparents, where they got him and Eliza to work picking fruit and veggies in their garden.
In the afternoon Abbey came round with Lilah and we took the kids to the park.
The new lockdown rules which come in on Monday means we shouldn’t see each other, but Abbey is my childcare for when I work, so not sure what we are going to do.
Sunday is a swimming night for Eliza and Isaac and it’s a bit of a nightmare as Eliza swims from 4.40-5.30pm and then Isaac from 6.45 – 7.45pm and its a 25 min drive from home, so I felt a taxi. Thankfully the weather was warm and dry, so I headed off for a walk whilst they were swimming.
Monday 14th September
The weather forecast was for a glorious day, but it started off very misty and murky.
A work day for me, with pre-school in the morning and Tesco in the afternoon. My husband and Kian made the most of a day off together and headed off for a bike ride along the beach, now it is allowed again.
Another swimming night for us, with Sebby’s first lesson since lockdown and a session for Eliza too.
Tuesday 15th September
Work for me in the morning and I spent the afternoon catching up on blog stuff before picking the kids up. Tuesday is swimming for Isaac and I took Eliza and Sebby to find the new play area I found on Sunday’s walk.
Let’s just say it was a big hit. I am just hoping the evenings stay light enough to use it for a while, whilst Isaac is swimming.
Wednesday 16th September
Another day of working in both pre-school and Tesco. I did head downstairs in the morning to the overwhelming feeling I was being watched!!
Thursday 17th September
Most of my Tesco shifts are evening, but today I had a day shift, so we made the most of the warm weather with a BBQ. Will it be the last one of the year………possibly as the weather changes next week.
Friday 18th September
Kian’s last shift at Splashdown before he heads back to university next week and his bike gets stolen!!
Luckily Tower Park is covered by CCTV, so they have an image of the culprit, who spend over 10 minutes trying to saw through the bike lock. Just hoping that the police catch him and Kian gets his bike back, but they have so much on their plate I doubt we will see it again.
Saturday 19th September
Kian has promised the kids he will take them to Splashdown before he goes back to university, so I dropped them off for an afternoon of fun, finished off with a KFC.
How has your week been?
