This is the continuation of the diary of our lockdown, with the kids and Boo at home, myself at work serving the elderly, dependant and people who just need some shopping. This week was a little calmer as everyone is seemingly settling down into this, with also it being Easter and lovely weather.
My work was pretty straightforward this week, no new additions really to what’s been going on, I’ve still had many people popping in with essentially just buying either newspapers, lottery, alcohol, cigarettes etc..again im not really judging but i do question some of these people, and people are still being very cautious in there 2-meter gap.
We have been able to continue with our bargain shopping, Boo has capitalised on her reduced items, no flowers this week but several plants, however, we have been able to keep topping us up on food at a lower cost, which massively helps us at the moment as we are saving as much money we can, with Boo being self-employed.
The kid have been even more relaxed this week as we haven’t asked them to do much, we’ve set both tigger and Roo the challenge to still read a book every week and write a book report, they have always been big readers so its not anything extra for them, but with the weather being so nice they have spent alot of the week playing outside, a new storage unit for there outdoor toys has been one of the new additions coming soon, so we got on and built it.
This week was Easter, and unfortunately, let’s be honest, it has been a bit muted, even though we all may have made extra efforts with it, it’s still not the same. With the kids we don’t tend to buy many Easter Eggs, normally family buys a lot and we pick up the odd one in the reduced sections, but again this has been a little different this year, with there birthday and Xmas so close together it leaves most of the year without anything thus we tend to buy them one present each.
Tigger got an Ipad due to his coding, he loves to do things like that and we’ve noticed many programs he’s done and wants to do are also on the Ipad that makes it easier, Piglet got some more Baby Annabel stuff which shes always happy with, Roo got some Airpods for her iPhone, she was good and already enjoy listening to music on them.
Next week should be a quieter week with perhaps not a lot happening, but who knows.
