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?
