Frustratingly my blog has been down, so I am a bit late posting my Project 365 this week.
I got to see my Mum and Step-Dad who had to travel to Poole for their COVID vaccines, so they stopped by for a brief doorstep visit.
Other than that, the week is no different to the last, with homeschooling, walks and work.
Here is our week:
Sunday 31st January
After four days of work it was nice to have a day off, but sadly the weather wasn’t going to let us get out for a walk.
Eliza made a start on her birthday LEGO – the Harry Potter Astronomy Tower and we enjoyed a day catching up on a few films we wanted to watch.
Monday 1st February
Back to home school and Isaac has finally started having live lessons like Eliza and Sebby, although he only seems to have only one or two per day.
Monday is also our day for looking after Lilah and when out for a walk we introduced her to the delights of puddle jumping, although she has yet to master the actually jump part.
You are never too old to enjoy a puddle splash and Isaac insisted on riding through the giant puddle numerous times – he did end up with a soggy bottom!!!
Tuesday 2nd February
Looking after Lilah means that CBeebies is now a firm feature in our house again, after a 3 year break. It is funny that many of the kids favourites are either still on TV or have been revamped.
Lilah’s particular favourites are Bing Bunny and Teletubbies, as she squeals with excitement when they come on the TV.
On our daily walk, we spotted our first snowdrops of the spring.
Wednesday 3rd February
After home schooling, Eliza finally finished her birthday LEGO.
Thursday 4th February
I have to admit that it is a relief that the kids get to go into school when I am at work.
Eliza and Isaac get on with live lessons with no problem, but trying to keep Sebby engaged is virtually impossible. Now that Eliza has her own laptop, we moved him onto a PC in the hall, but he is worse out there. This week he drew on the door as he was bored!!
At Tesco I am working on putting together some information about how we support our local community, through food donations, fundraising etc. It always amazes me how generous people are to those less fortunate.
Friday 5th February
I changed my shift last minute to help cover some absence at work and worked a late shift, which made a nice change. I also got to help Isaac build his own microscope, which he was struggling with.
It was strangely busy for an evening shift and we had a few issues, but I like a challenge. Some of the team now have body cams to wear which felt a bit weird, but it was nice to have a bit of added visible protection.
Saturday 6th February
Another work day for me. After last week’s busy Saturday, we were not expecting another, but I did not stop from beginning to end.
We spent a chilled evening watching Masked Singer, trying to figure out who is left. We guessed Morten Harket and Gabrielle correct, but didn’t have a clue about the others. I think Sausage is Sheridan Smith, but having watched the Musicals program, I am not so sure now.
How was your week?
