Project 365 2021 – Week Thirty Two

After the excitement and busyness of last week, this week has been back down to earth with a bump, with a full week back at work, therefore it is all a bit quiet on the blog front. Monday 9th August It is unusual for me to work Monday’s but I am the only one trained to cover this week, so I handed over my Lilah responsibilities to her other Nanny and headed into work. When I got home, Sebby was itching to open his lolly that he got from Warner Bros the day before. Tuesday 10th August During our visit …

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 …

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 areas that haven’t got a high level of infection. We are on countdown to half term now, although Isaac’s school …

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 in the North West as cases rise again and businesses that were allowed to open from 1st August (Casinos, bowling …

Project 365 2020 Week 26 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 15

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 our beach as a toilet / rubbish tip. I don’t want Boris to shut down beaches, but I do think …
