Project 365 2020 Week 47 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 36

Costa

The second week of a full lockdown and apart from some changes to my husband’s work, it still doesn’t feel any different. Cases of coronavirus seem to be levelling off, but the papers of full of stories that hospitals are struggling with the volume of patients infected. It has been a busy week for us with appointments to attend, but I like having my evenings back and we have watched the entire season 4 of The Crown and are loving… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 47 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 36”

Project 365 2020 Week 46 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 35

Holes Bay

The first week of our new lockdown and it feels so different from the first. I have not noticed much difference in the traffic, especially at school run times. Thankfully there is no panic buying this time, which is good, but people are upset that non-essentials have been cordoned off in shops. I have to admit that I am surprised that my husband is still working as the company he works for I class as non-essential, but they seem to… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 46 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 35”

We are now on countdown for half term and fingers crossed we can still go away as planned. Here is our week: Sunday 11th… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 42 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 31”

Project 365 2020 Week 40 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 29

Bucket Swing

It has been an interesting week and we are feeling a bit down, probably as we had isolation, Boris’ announcements and then the weather was so rubbish that we have not been able to go out. On Wednesday evening the Prime Minister gave his first joint press conference with the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific advisor since the start of the pandemic because the country is at a “critical moment” as cases are rising at an alarming rate. At… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 40 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 29”

My positive experience of the COVID19 app

Contact Tracing

With the kids back at school, it was inevitable that the kids were going to come home with coughs and colds at some point. This happened after just two weeks, but thankfully their symptoms were just runny noses. Last Tuesday I felt the first symptoms of a cold in myself and thought nothing of it. I work in a pre-school and normally find that I feel like I am fighting the lurgy between the months of October to March anyway… Continue Reading “My positive experience of the COVID19 app”
