The Lockdown – Week 5: Birthday Week

24th April 2020 – Friday It’s my son’s birthday tomorrow … He’s going to be 9! He calls it his birthday week as he wants to celebrate it for the whole week.

The Lockdown – Day 25: What Day Is It Again?

14th April 2020 – Tuesday We are now on the way to day 25 of this nonsense … I mean lockdown. Are we seeing any improvements in numbers? I don’t think so. It’s getting tiresome now.

The Lockdown – Day 20: Officially Rundown

9th April 2020 – Thursday I couldn’t sleep last night. I wasn’t feeling too great … hot and cold flushes and feeling restless.

My asthma was playing up, myContinue reading “The Lockdown – Day 20: Officially Rundown”

The Lockdown – Day 19: Exhausted Much?

8th April 2020 – Wednesday I’m going to keep it short and sweet today. It’s been a long day … or should I say a long couple of weeks. My body is aching and I have a headache right now.

The Lockdown Day 17: When Only A Cardboard Box Will Do

6th April 2020 – Monday The start of the third week for us has begun.

At least theContinue reading “The Lockdown Day 17: When Only A Cardboard Box Will Do”

The Lockdown – Day 14: It’s The Little Things That Matter

3rd April 2020 – Friday Ahhhhhhhh it’s Friday, not that it really makes a difference because we can’t go anywhere or do anything … but let’s say YAY for the weekend anyway!

I’ve been having feelingsContinue reading “The Lockdown – Day 14: It’s The Little Things That Matter”

The Lockdown – Day 13: The Cracks Are Beginning To Show

2nd April 2020 – Thursday Home schooling today was a bit of a struggle. Skye in particular was having a bad morning and was in a mood.

I really can’t deal with stroppy children and my kidsContinue reading “The Lockdown – Day 13: The Cracks Are Beginning To Show”

The Lockdown – Day 12: April Fool’s Day

1st April 2020 – Wednesday APRIL FOOLS DAY! We are on day 12 of hibernation … ahem  … I mean self-isolation, lockdown whatever you want to call it. I am actually ok with not going out right now.

The Lockdown – Day 11: Breathe and Relax

31st March 2020 – Tuesday Ah yes, it’s the end of the month and that means payday for me! I am one of the fortunate ones who still gets a salary even though I am self-isolating.
