Not much to report this week.
We thought Bank Holiday would be busy, but the weather wasn’t playing ball so most people stayed at home.
Infection rates continue to fall in England, Wales and Scotland and remained level in Northern Ireland. The government have decided not to give the Oxford vaccine to under 40’s now because of the risk of blood clots. I have my second one next week, but apparently the risk is less with a second dose.
Here is our week:
Sunday 2nd May
I did an overtime shift at Tesco and my husband stayed home with the kids as the weather was awful.
Sebby is costing the tooth fairy at fortune at the moment and lost his last remaining front tooth whilst eating an apple – he has a proper gappy smile now!!
Monday 3rd May
Bank Holiday Monday so the kids were off school and I didn’t have Lilah as Abbey was off visiting her Dad for his birthday. My husband was working a half day, so we had plans to go out when he got home, but the Bank Holiday traffic was so bad it was too late by the time he was home.
Sebby had his swimming lesson in the evening and I actually got to watch him swim – it’s great to see his progress, although he is nowhere near where Isaac and Eliza were at his age because he has lost almost a year of swimming.
We are practising front crawl arms at home now.
Tuesday 4th May
I moved my Tesco hours this week to help cover absence, so it was a work day for me and the kids were booked into after-school club, which they really enjoyed.
My husband is still working in Weymouth and he stopped to take this gorgeous picture when he left work.
Wednesday 5th May
Another work day for me with pre-school in the morning and then straight to Tesco.
I made it just into the store when the heavens opened, with giant hail stones.
Thursday 6th May
As I was day off I made the most of being child free and headed out to see a friend. Her cat, Theo, is obviously not used to visitors anymore and stood guard – I think she was secretly waiting for cake.
Friday 7th May
It has been 6 months since my hair was last cut and it needed it. Unfortunately, they couldn’t fit me in for highlights, but having new hair feels wonderful.
The plan was to walk and find a new Bluebell wood in the afternoon, but my husband changed plans and we ended up a Poole Harbour – lets just say my new hair was blown all over the place.
As it was low tide, we walked out as far as we could for a different perspective.
Saturday 8th May
Back to work for me and I had a busy day. My only photo was of the food bank, it always amazes me how generous our customers are.
The baskets get emptied twice a week by the foodbank and I always have to empty them again over the weekend.
How was your week?
