Life In Lockdown | Early mornings and frustrations {Week 32}

The first half term of the new school year is completed and we are ready for a week of family time. Whilst the half-term holidays are always welcomed, I think we have been craving the break in the usual routine of adjusting to back to school etc. that but harder after having the children home for so long. Although with all that’s still going on in the world around us we don’t have any grand plans for the week ahead.

Frustrations and delays

One of my pet peeves in the life is people not returning phone calls. Why say ‘I’ll just double-check something and get back to you’ if you’re not actually going to call back. I feel as though I’m constantly chasing calls and emails this week which is so frustrating especially when it is only leading to further delays.


For the first time since life in lockdown and social distancing started, I had my best friend. Whilst we’ve managed two catch-ups in person, with the different tiers of lockdown happening we felt it best to catch up via FaceTime rather than attempting to meet up in person. So lovely to see her face and chat about everything that is going on in our lives. We really do need to do it more often.

Here, there and everywhere

What The Dad Said‘s shifts have been all over the place for the last few weeks. With a number of early shifts which he’d prefer not to do. It’s meant that we’ve all been a little disjointed at home. Never really sure what shift he is working etc. Thankfully he is now off for the half-term holidays so we will get a chance to spend time with him.

Early riser

Usually, when I am complaining about my sleeping patterns it is related to my insomnia plaguing my inability to switch off and fall asleep at night. However, this week I am complaining about the fact that despite drifting off easier on a night, I am waking up early and unable to fall back to sleep. This has seen some very early mornings, but it does give me a chance to snuggle on the sofa and enjoy a few hours reading my Kindle until the rest of the house wakes for the day.
