Life In A Lockdown Linky – Week 18

It seems to be Tuesday again, and a new month, where is the time going.  Tuesday means it is time for my Life In A Lockdown Linky post.  Where each week sine Lockdown I have been taking part in a Linky where I answer the same questions, and answer with how it has been this week.

1) How are you feeling/coping?

On a whole not too bad, I am still stressing over C and her education for September.  Her EHCP was declined and now having to go through various meetings, get tons more support letters to try and get her what she would normally just have handed to her on a plate if she was not ill. I am angry and very stressed about it.

Also during Lockdown you may remember one of my front teeth broke.  I keep trying to get a dentist appointment but they are only dealing with emergencies and as I have no pain it is not an emergency.  Luckily having to wear masks is better for my confidence now

Also I had a bit of a meltdown on Sunday where I read they want to Lockdown 50-70 year olds.  This is impossible for me as I can not do that

2) What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?

At the moment it is fighting for C’s education, it is a nightmare.  I am also cooking and trying new recipes as we have just gone onto a low carb diet.

3) How are you dealing with everything at the moment – are you self-isolated, going out for essentials etc? Has this changed?

We are going out now, just to get out of the house and go for a coffee or lunch.  I also had a lovely afternoon out with C on Friday where we both had our hair cut and it felt amazing. Poor C has been struggling since at it really took it out of her.

4) What advice do you have for others?

Where your mask, keep socially distancing and just be aware of those around you

5) What have you bought this week that others might like? Especially if from a small business

I have been good this week and not bought anything

6) How has your routine been this week? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)

A nightmare, with everything going on I keep losing track of the time

7) Have you planned anything for once lockdown is over in the past 7 days?? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)

Seeing my Granddaughter tomorrow with C and taking my Mum and Mother In Law as well

Thank you to

    I know what you mean. I have totally lost track of time too. It’s like every day merges into one. I hope you manage to get C’s eduction sorted, that sounds like it must be really hard work and it’s shocking that it has been made so difficult for you x

      It is a nightmare, I finally got hold of the information they used to make their decision, So I had to go in arguing they did not use her consultants support at all. They are now trying to speak to him but saying she does not need an EhCP which she does

    This has been an interesting week with more news of lockdown especially for some Manchester areas. I do hope as you say they don’t next implement the lock Lockdown for those aged 50-70 year olds as it is so unfair. I think the younger ones are the ones who are not social distancing

    It’s such a massive rollercoaster of emotions isn’t it . I’m sure September will be a little clearer for schools , fingers and toes crossed

      It is a rollercoaster, the education side is not to do with schools opening but if they will give C education

    My week has been OK, like you I’m trying to get out to see people and enjoy lunches out but it’s tough to keep a distance when not everyone is adhering to the rules x

      That is what I am finding the social distancing, although most places are keeping to it luckily

    I didn’t know they were thinking of locking down 50-70 year olds! It has been such a tough few months I don’t blame you that you feel you can’t face that. Hope you get the issues with C’s education sorted x

      I haven’t heard anything about it since so hoping it was just one of those speculation stories. I am hoping we get her education sorted soon I am so angry that just because she is ill we have to fight for everything

    I can’t believe how hard you are having to fight for C’s education. I mean, it should be something that just happens when people are ill to let them carry on.

      It is a total nightmare, I now have all the evidence in place so need to sit down later today and fill out the appeal and send it off. It is awful that you have to fight for them
