Life In A Lockdown Linky – Week 22

Life In A Lockdown Linky - Week 22

22 weeks of lockdown, it does not seem possible does it.  As you will know by now I have been taking part in a linky where each week I answer questions on how my week has been.  So how has the past week been for me.

1) How are you feeling/coping?

My earache is back so have a Dr appointment this afternoon, think I need antibiotics to clear it up rather than the spray. Still upset and annoyed that C still has not education plan in place

2) What have you been up to over the past 7 days?

It has been stressful trying to rearrange our holiday for two weeks as cancelled going to France now.  We are now off to Gran Canaria with friends for a week.  Staying in an amazing villa we have researched and speaking to others and it is ok thankfully. So fingers crossed there is no break outs before we go.

One of our dogs gave us a laugh last night once the drama was over.  He charged up the garden and then picked something up and luckily we stopped him before going in the house.  Wait for it he had picked up a hedgehog, the poor thing just sat there in a ball and did not move.  So 10.30pm I am going around finding a box and bedding to put it in as I couldn’t leave it like that.  We waited and watched to see if it was ok.  Luckily it was fine and walked off.  In all my years of owning dogs I have never had this before.

3) What are your priorities at the moment, have you changed what you will / won’t go out for?

We are only going out for what we need.  I have continued with getting my shopping delivered each week also since lockdown started.

4) Have you found anywhere doing a really good job of catering to social distancing?

I honestly have not been anywhere, but my parents went on a Warners break this weekend and said they were very impressed with the social distancing and how they had modified areas to make it mor efficient.

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

I have not bought anything this week apart from bits for our holiday

6) How has your routine been this week?

Routine – what is that, ours it totally out of synch at the moment

7) What have you learnt over lockdown (this doesn’t have to be a skill, it could be about yourself, your family, or something else).

I have not learnt any new skills but have learnt to be more grateful to those around me.  Also not to stress over things too much.

8) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?

The laughs we have had, over silly little things but being able to laugh is the best tonic anyone needs.

Just our week away next month

How has your week been?

Thank you to

  1. It’s a shame you had to cancel your trip to France. Glad you’ve got an alternative though. Gran Canaria will be lovely I’m sure. No fun purchases here either I’m afraid unless you count food!

  2. I hope all went OK with the doctors and yay for getting a holiday sorted, I hope you manage to relax being away with your friends.

  3. The past 7 days for me was like a roller coaster ride. Happy days then sad days then happy days again. But I do make sure that I always stay thankful for the blessings and lessons learned. Healthwise, I have been trying to get an appointment for a teleconsult, but have not been successful. I am getting really bad migraine headaches and I need a prescription for a pain reliever that would work!

  4. A hedgehog? That is man! Poor little guy, I bet that was a shock to the system. Routine is nonexistent here too, that’s pretty much the only thing that I’m looking forward to when school starts again.

    1. Yes a hedgehog, I was not going to leave it outside if it didn’t move, and watched it until it ran off. Luckily our dog has a soft mouth so wouldn’t have hurt it, although surprised he didn’t get hurt.

  5. I think it is fair that you are still getting your shopping delivered. I still don’t think it is 100% safe just yet.
