The past week life in lockdown has felt like a long one, the days never-ending and far too much whizzing through my mind. Certainly, one that I’m thankful to bid farewell to and hope that the feeling of failure I’ve held on to all week subsides much sooner than I expect it will.
Hands up, who stole at least two days of my week? I can’t believe how quickly this life in lockdown week has flown by. Although I have been quite productive this week, there are still things outstanding on my to-do list which is frustrating me.
Truth be told we have been living in somewhat of a bubble since life in lockdown began. Even before that really when news of COVID-19 started to infiltrate all the media outlets.
The first full week of November has brought us the start of another lockdown. As well as two of the children’s birthdays. Not to mention the returning to schooling the Autumn half-term holidays. A busy week around I’m sure you can agree. We were somewhat ready for the chaos of the birthdays and luckily were prepared for the closure of non-essential shops during life in lockdown.
This week we greeted the half-term holiday like a long lost friend. The week long break from school is always welcome after the beginning of the new school year. Having been off school between March and September, I think that Roo and Tigger were looking forward to the time at home with open arms
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.
I’m so ready for this week to be over, it feels as though it has pushed all my buttons. A rollercoaster of emotions that has seen me happy, sad, annoyed, frustrated and angry (truly bitter if I’m completely honest with you)
The end of another week and yet again I am left scrambling my brain cells to remember what has happened this week. I’m feeling as though I’m just getting through each day and not really noticing what is happening. Although I know life isn’t exactly at the moment (not that it was too much more exciting for the lockdown) I do worry as though I’m wasting the days away.
Hello October! The prolonged lockdown has made me question just how far we are though the year. It doesn’t seem possible that it is October already, feeling as though we skipped a month or two without noticing. Whilst there is a part of me looking forward to 2020 being over, there is a part of me that feels we need to cherish the days in order to make better memories than those of life in lockdown.
Life in lockdown continues and we are adjusting to being back at school. The long, warm and dry days of summer have been replaced by the windy, wet and darker evenings of autumn.
