I have been recording our Lockdown time in our diary to help us look back at this crazy time, how it was? what happened? how did we feel? what did we do? With the kids and Boo at home dealing with Homeschooling and home life, and me who is at work as a key worker, observing people and trying to help.
With half-term looming next week the kids continued their schoolwork, they are definitely in that grove now and getting used to doing there work in the mornings, we are starting to set them, extra challengers, in the afternoon but to be honest, there’s only so much you can do lol.
The kids have though been enjoying the garden more, the hot weather has helped as they have had several water fights, but also the addition of a Go Outdoors Tent to the house has allowed them to play in it, however, they have wanted to have some camping sleepovers so now a couple of times they have been in it, with more plan next week, one was cut short on the night we have really bad wind, think it was a bit too much for them as they came in early, luckily the tent stayed in place though.
We’ve been doing more baking, where I work I have the option sometimes to get things a little cheaper, like short-dated items or delisted lines that we now need to sell to make room for new food lines, so we did with some chocolate, as we had a few bars I got rice Krispies that were also on sale anyway, and went old school with Chocolate Krispies, Roo did most of this but all of us, except Tigger(fussy Eater), enjoyed them.
With my work I alluded to last week that people really have just given up on some of the lockdown rules, and this week was the really big noticeable change, people aren’t keeping the distances that were being done before, there’s now a lot less PPE going round, kids are coming into the shop on there own, and some with there parents, and to be honest they weren’t coming in before so there isn’t a child care issues, with the sunny weather and heat, people have let there guards down and hopefully there won’t be any repercussions.
Boo still is doing some work while looking after the kids and housework, we still hoping her work will pick up soon as more people can head back to work, with the house we have been making inroads to the garden (more to come) and more planning, so hopefully, soon we will have these bits done.
Overall its been more of the same week, nice weather though has added to the week, some more shopping bargains has helped our mood, along with tweaks to the gaming room, next week is half-term (kind of), I forgot there was a bank holiday lol.
