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… Continue Reading “Project 365 2021: Week Eight”

Project 365 2020 Week 43 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 32


I have been trying to avoid the news this week as it is making me cross again, with areas with a high COVID level refusing to go into Tier 3 lockdown. It almost feels like they are stomping their feet like a petulant toddler, saying it’s not fair that the rest of the country aren’t. As an area that is still in Tier 1, I fully expect our turn will come at some point but its not fair to lockdown… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 43 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 32”

Project 365 2020 Week 31 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 20


The introduction of compulsory masks in shops has arrived and it seems that the majority of people have accepted it, with a mere grumble. I worked my first proper shopfloor shift wearing one last weekend and I have to admit that I got so hot that I felt ill, but I will persevere. Luckily we don’t have to wear them if we are behind screens, which is a relief. The end of the week has seen restrictions on household contact… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 31 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 20”

After the excitement of ending a week with a birthday and Sebby turning 7, we started the week with another birthday and Father’s Day. It has been another frustrating week for us. Living in Bournemouth we are used to tourist season, but nothing like on a scale of what we have seen in the last few days. Over half a million people descended on our little town, much of which is still closed because of the COVID19 pandemic and used… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 26 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 15”

Project 365 2020 Week 22 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 11

Grip Launcher

Believe it or not it has been half term this week and the kids have loved not having to do any schoolwork. I am not looking forward to getting back to it next week. The government has set out a plan to return life to as near normal as we can and this week the rules have relaxed slightly, allowing us to spend time outdoors, including private gardens and other outdoor spaces, in groups of up to six people from… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 22 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 11”
