We are now in week 29 of Lockdown and things are tightening up again. I have been taking part in this linky since week 1.
I have seen us go into lockdown, live through lockdown and then start to come out of lockdown. Now we are over 6 months into the virus and lockdowns are happening again. Hopefully we will start to come out again and not return.
So how has this week been for us?
1) How are you feeling/coping?
We have finally had the Consultants letter and after having to make a telephone call to speak to our GP. Then explain what the letter meant and what the plan was, they finally prescribed the new medication. We started her on Friday with the new medication, and decreasing one of her other medications. As it is still early days, C is struggling a bit with the side effects and it is also wiping her out. We were aware this would happen, hopefully they will start to ease up soon.
We are busy as currently gutting out C’s bedroom and redecorating (still trying to choose colours). We are also rearranging her bedroom and getting new furniture which has kept me busy,
I am not liking the new stricter measures coming in, as I just want this to be over. I am worrying about it more now than I was at the beginning. I think it is due to having another grandchild due in the next month and the world she is coming into. I really can see the whole country being in total lockdown in the coming weeks.
2) What have you been up to over the past 7 days?
We did have a trip to Ikea last Tuesday looking at bedroom furniture. We went in the afternoon and it was lovely and quiet. Although I did get annoyed and did voice my opinion at three young women without masks messing about, running about all over the place. Not one member of staff said anything to them.
3) What do you think the coming weeks and months might hold for you (or the world)?
I can see a full lockdown coming on. I really do not know what the answer is as we were told face masks will help to combat the virus, but it has not. So full lockdown seems the logical way to go.
4) If you could remind yourself something about this time in years to come what would it be?
Do not take anything for granted. Before this all started we never realised just how much freedom we had, how we could see our friends and family, go out and have fun without even thinking about it.
5) What have you bought this week that others might like? Especially if from a small business.
Nothing, although I do have a huge shopping list to buy this week. All decorating and bedroom furniture. I have been online window shopping and found Iced Out Jewellery who have a lovely range of Hip Hop Jewellery that one of my boys would love, so Christmas shopping is under way
6) What is a unique (or not) technique you have used to get you through this time?
Taking part in this linky every week, has helped me get my thoughts out.
7) What is something your readers might not know about you?
I used to love dancing when I was younger and used to go to ballroom dance classes and got my certificate in the Cha Cha Cha. We moved soon after so I never went on to do more.
8) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?
My family and friends
Thank you to
