I started this to recap what has happened during the lockdown, with our thoughts, emotions and many other obstacles, now 14 weeks into it, we keep going until all the kids go back to school and we get back to some normality with work, and our daily lives.
This week was a bit of a rainy one with the build-up to fathers day in the back round, however, there were a couple of big things going on, one is fathers day and the other something we bought partly for fathers day and partly for the kiddies in general. However Roo was not on form this week and it felt a bit of a run-in with her and her attitude, being a teenager its no surprise to witness an emotional response etc, but you could see the boredom and school work at home was really on her now, I had eluded to it over the last few weeks but this week felt it reached that point, a couple of stern chats seemed to have turned the corner.
Fathers day this year, of course, was for muted than previous years, don’t get me wrong I’m not a big lover of celebrating myself and id rather focus on the kiddies but I get that this is part of the fun for the kids to celebrate fathers day, much like many other holidays and birthdays etc, so normally we would be popping out somewhere I combining with it one of our adventures out, this year though just fell into chilling at home, we did play on a present (more to come), but a film night, some takeaway, and generally just being at home with the kids was fine for me, I wrote a post about gift guides for myself, but I would be happy whatever I got, and I was, with the addition of a newer slimline Small Nespresso machine (post coming later in the year), and some coffee pods, to be honest, there was a deal on pods and machine and as I need some more coffee I cheated a little lol.
A musical twist
The other big addition this week was Rock Band on Xbox One! On our Xbox one I decided to not buy games and just stay on using the Xbox Gamer Pass, however, I have a long history of playing Guitar Hero and Rockband games so I’ve always enjoyed them, but on this generation of consoles I haven’t really got it, much like many of us this generation just haven’t really taken to this interactive games like the previous couple of generations, which is a shame because the game is great, the ability to have more songs and the fluidness of it all is fantastic, we got the set and focused on this because Roo likes to sing, Tigger is far better on drums, I like guitar and Boo likes to also sing, Roo has been doing some guitar as well but still in practice mode, i will sing the odd song lol.
Ovverall its been an ok week, I’m still doing lots of hours and balancing things which is why I get a little behind on here sometimes, meanwhile, kids are still doing school work and Boo is trying to do more work but it’s still slow. How’s your week been?
