Project 365 2021: Week Eight


We are all relieved we have a roadmap out of lockdown now and dates to look forward to, including the kids back to school on 8th March and all restrictions to end on my birthday, 21st June.

I know it is provisional and could change, but it is something to be hopeful for. I am slightly concerned that people seem to think it is over already and there are COVID spikes already.

It has been confirmed that Eliza and Sebby will be in school from 8th March, but Isaac’s secondary school want to stagger the starts, so we don’t know when he will go back, or when Kian can head back to university.

Here is our week:

Sunday 21st February

After my COVID vaccination the day before, I was slightly concerned that I was due to work today as I had heard stories of people feeling very unwell afterwards.

I had no ill effects at all, apart from a slightly achy arm, so work was fine.

When I got home, Sebby was itching to open his new Goo Jit Zu toys we have been sent to review.

Monday 22nd February

Back to home schooling after half term and the kids were remarkably focussed. I had been expecting it to be hard, but they put their heads down and got on with their assigned tasks.

The weather has been so wet over the last week, that our local walks were still closed, so we chose to walk our Pokemon route, which takes us past pokestops and gyms. Thankfully we had some blue skies too.

Tuesday 23rd February

It is safe say that Sebby lulled me into a false sense of security with his home learning, as all the enthusiasm from yesterday had vanished, without a trace.

We gave up after live lessons had finished and decided to head out to the beach for some fresh air. There are two types of beach goers in our family – the keen Pokemon hunters……

and the sea lovers, whatever the weather!!

It was actually lovely and mild and we all ditched our coats and jackets by the end of the walk.

Wednesday 24th February

I am back at the pre-school on a Wednesday morning now as their numbers are starting to climb.

The only problem with reviewing items, is that I am often over-run with packaging, so in the evening we had a bonfire in our fire bin as there was no room in our bins.

Thursday 25th February

The rain is back, so it was a soggy walk to school before work.

My secondment as the Community Champion at Tesco has finished, so last week I applied for the permanent role and was surprised with an interview today, which I wasn’t expecting but I think went well.

Friday 26th February

My shift was changed last minute as someone was off sick, so I am working late night. It did mean that I could take advantage of the warm, sunny weather and get the washing out on the line.

I cannot wait to get the garden sorted once the weather stays dry for a few more days.

When Kian was little, he was obsessed with Engie Benji and we have started watching it with Lilah. I couldn’t resist these little figures that I found on eBay, so lined them up by his games console to see how long it would take him to notice them.

Saturday 27th February

I found out to today that I got the job and I made a poster to try and highlight to the customers how much we contribute to our community. Hopefully this year will be much easier.


I finished early and came home to a film afternoon, watching Flora and Ulysses.

How has your week been?

  3. Oh that beach is stunning, its the first place we are heading to once we can go a little further afield. What a beautiful place to live. The weather has been glorious and it makes all the difference to my mood. Congratulations on getting the job that’s brilliant news.

    Congratulations on getting a job! I think with the vaccine, it’s very individual, some people sailed through it wthout any issues, some had reacted strongly and were very unwell afterwards.
    Looks like you had some lovely walks along the beach. I know all about Pokemon hunters in the family. 🙂 Love the blu sky photo, with Lilah so happy being lifted up. Such joy!

  5. I think the after effects of the vaccine depends on which version (my parents had different ones and my dad just had an achey arm but my mum felt awful for 24 hours). Congratulations on the permanent role! #project365

  6. Glad that you’ve had your vaccine and the kids were focused on getting back to home-schooling after half-term even if it didn’t last! Congratulations on getting the permanent community champion job. #project365

    Congrats on the job!!

    Loving the beach photos. Wish we lived closer to one.

    My family didn’t get side effects either apart from the sore arm.

  8. Fingers crossed you get the job. I’m taking the dates with a pinch of salt. Will just take each milestone as it comes and pray for the best. #365

    Congratulations with the job. I think a lot of people are complaining about side effects as a badge of honour lol The weather over the past few days has been quite extreme, sitting in the garden one day and the next the heating back on.

    It sounds like you can have a fantastic birthday in June. The lifting of restrictions will happen just before our wedding anniversary, so I’m pretty pleased about that too.
    It’s amazing you’ve had your vaccine, I’m very happy for you.

    Sounds like it’s been a busy week. Well done on getting the job. Supermarkets all do some much for communities, and not enough people give them credit for that. Shame about the rain – it’s been gorgeous here all week.

    Ohh! What a fab birthday present for you, the restrictions ending. I do hope it all goes to plan.
    I am so glad you felt OK after your Covid vaccine. Everyone I know who’s had it has felt rotten.
    My youngest loves those Goo Jit Zu toy things. She has quite a collection.
    It looks like you’ve had lots of fun outside this past week. The change in the weather has been fantastic, well apart from the rainy walk to school. I do love the umbrella though. x
