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”

This week it has been confirmed that the kids swimming will be resumed from 26th July, on a limited program of two sessions per week. With the sessions happening in late afternoon, it means they are going to clash with our working schedules so I am not sure how many they will be able to attend.

So, things have relaxed again and the 2 metre social distancing rule has been reduced to 1 meter+, although at work we are sticking with 2 metres. The weather has been rubbish this week, which has meant no visitors to our beaches and a much calmer week all in all. Today hairdressers have opened, with added PPE and I was lucky enough to get a hair appointment straight away, with the boys booked in for next week. Here is our… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 27 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 16”

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”
