After what was named as Freedom Day, last Monday, we have changed the weekly post to Life After Lockdown. After chatting with Sarah and Rebecca, we decided to change the linky and carry on, as most of us think we will be back in some form of lockdown in the future. The questions have also changed, so if you have wanted to take part in the linky, now would be a great time to join in. The new questions are
1) How are you feeling/coping?
I am finding things pretty much the same as before. C has an appointment with her Neurologist on 29th July, the appointment came through a while ago with this one being at the hospital. We had a phone call last week this is now a telephone appointment, which they have been all the way through lockdown. I have also not been well, and have had two phone appointments with my GP part of what is wrong I need to see an actual person, but no it is just telephone at the moment.
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?
We had a visit to the college C has applied to, she did amazing it was very hot and we were told we did not have to wear masks, C kept hers on the whole time, so proud of her not to follow the crowd. I have also been trying to deal with a technical issue with her college application, and I ended up talking to someone while we were there, saying I am not stupid but really can not see where I find something. Turns out it was not me but their system and it is now sorted.
I am also trying to speak with our LA to sort out some other issues around her EHCP, and getting nowhere. So this has been taking up all my time.
3) What’s a helpful tip you would like the future to know about living in / or after a pandemic?
Think of yourself first, wear a mask if you want to even if others are not, and keep hand santisers with you
4) What tips do you have for others when out and about?
Be respectful to others, even if there are no restrictions now, try to keep social distancing going
5) What is your favourite post of the past 7 days (it could be yours or someone else’s)?
Honestly, I have seen some amazing posts, but I have been so caught up with C and college my mind has gone blank
6) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?
My family and friends, I have been struggling lately and they have been there when I needed them.
7) What has made you smile this week?
C has made me smile so much this past week with her determination, she really has. Also my youngest granddaughter. Last Wednesday I messaged her Mum to say there was a delivery due for some clothes for the girls, she text back ok thanks. Later that evening she told me she was taken to hospital in an ambulance with the youngest as she has this rash that was spreading and sent me pics through which was awful. She didn’t tell me as she didn’t want to worry me, but they were home. I messaged the next morning asking how she was and got the most beautiful picture of her smiling no rash and helping her Mum pack.
8) Anything else you would like to mention?
I have seen a lot of people moaning about those still wearing masks and those who are not. There is no right or wrong, I have worn mine most of the time, but not on a couple of times. Please just think of yourself do not make others feel bad for their choices.
