Some how it is Tuesday already, which means that it is time for the Life In a Lockdown Linky. Can you believe we are now in week 15. I must say things are a lot different to when we first started out in our Lockdown journey. So how has this week been for us.
1) How are you feeling/coping?
At the moment I am struggling, I am chasing brickwalls with getting education sorted for C next year. I have emailed and called so many places but just have to wait to hear back. I feel like I am letting her down, she desperately wants education and it will be me who has to tell her there is none and no one cares.
On a positive note, I am feeling hopeful for Thursday when we have a Zoom Consultation with her ME Consultant, to discuss her gastro problems. Am really hoping he can give us some hope of a recovery.
2) What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?
My husband took me away to an AirBnB last week for a couple of nights. He could see how much I was being affected by everything. We went mid week to Brighton and it was so quiet. We had some lovely walks along the beach and talked a lot about our plans of action for C. I am so lucky to have my parents who love looking after her.
Then Friday evening my site went down, if there is a problem I get an email. Usually it is back up within 10 minutes so never been an issue. Saturday morning my site was still down so I put in a support ticket. No response by the afternoon and as they were on skeleton staff, yes I had to have this happen the one weekend they moved offices. I took to Twitter, still no response. Sunday morning, I rang them and spoke to a lovely man who said he could see what it was and promised me I would be up and working by Monday morning. I woke up at 6am and started chasing as you guessed, my site was still down. After a lot of chasing I got my site back. But all the good work that a couple of nights away did, this undid it all.
3) How are you dealing with everything at the moment – are you self-isolated, going out for essentials etc? Has this changed?
Apart from a couple of nights away, we stayed in a house and kept so far away from other people. I was amazed at just how conscious people are of social distancing.
4) What advice do you have for others?
Be aware, with everywhere getting back to normal, and from what I witnessed last week. It is safe to go out and do things, but just be aware of others use the hand sanitiser that is provided. But if you don’t have to go out stay home and stay safe
5) What have you bought this week that others might like? Especially if from a small business
I treated C to some new clothes, we had a lovely time sitting browsing online shopping.
6) How has your routine been this week? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)
I have no routine at the moment
7) Have you planned anything for once lockdown is over in the past 7 days?? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)
We are seeing our granddaughter on Friday, I can not wait for a few hours with her, and C is looking forward to it as well.
