Here we are in week 81 of Life After Lockdown. From the beginning of lockdown I have been taking part in a linky where we answer questions of how the past week has been. Originally in lockdown, and now after lockdown.
As you know Sarah and Rebecca run this linky, unfortunately they will not be taking part this week. I am going to keep up the linky and would be lovely for them both to see others take part.
How has your week been? Read on to see how my week has been.
For those wanting to take part the questions are
1) How are you feeling/coping?
I am getting so wound up over C’s education, we should have found out last Wednesday if she was on the course, and the details for starting. I chased on Wednesday and Friday and we still have no news. It is affecting her mental health as she just wants to be normal and have an education. This is the side of chronic illness that others do not see and just one of the many battles we have to face.
I have my follow up appointment this week for my health problems, and also have additional problems now which I am hoping is hormonal and I do not have to go through Dr referrals and mammograms so soon.
Also, have a virus that my husband has lovingly passed onto me, so trying to stay away from C as much as I can.
2) What have you been up to over the past 7 days? Are you living life as normal, being cautious or still being very careful?
I got tickets for us to go to a comedy club locally, which was originally booked for September, but rescheduled for last Wednesday, the main act was Romesh Ranganathan, who was trying out new material. We had a great time and was lovely doing something different.
I have also been trying to sort C’s 18th birthday, plus I have my two granddaughters birthdays one will be 4 and the other 1.
3) What’s a helpful tip you would like the future to know about living in / or after a pandemic?
Life can change so quickly, and we went from living with no restrictions to becoming aware of those around us and our surroundings. Use hand sanitiser, wear masks be aware of your own health as well.
4) What tips do you have for others when out and about?
Always carry a mask and hand sanitiser, use the hand sanitiser more than you would usually think too. Also give others space and just be respectful.
5) What is your favourite post of the past 7 days (it could be yours or someone else’s)?
You will probably have noticed I was quite quiet last week, I am really struggling physically and emotionally at the moment. I have been reading posts and read some great posts but you know me my mind has gone blank
6) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?
My bed I am feeling so rough I have been staying in bed working on and off and sleeping lots
7) What has made you smile this week?
My dogs they are so different but both so funny definitely help keep your spirits up
8) Anything else you would like to mention?
Stop panic buying, yes shelves will be empty if you keep panic buying. But carry on as normal and the shelves won’t be empty.
