Life In A Lockdown Linky – Week 35

Here we are Tuesday has come around again.  Considering we are in lockdown the weeks are going very quickly.  As you will know I have been taking part in this lockdown since the start in March.  Can you believe we are in week 35.  So how has your week been.

1) How are you feeling/coping?

Fed up I have still not seen my new granddaughter and missing her sisters 3rd birthday.  Still feeling that even though we are going into tiers tomorrow, we still have a long way to go.

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

Worrying about one of my boys and helping him out again.  Managed to get C back into her bedroom but still waiting on furniture to be delivered so everything is just piled up in there

Still having random phone calls from various professionals for C’s EHCP it is never ending.  All we want is some form of education for her.

3) What do you think the coming weeks and months might hold for you (or the world)?

I have no idea, I would like to think the new vaccine will help us get back to normality of some sort.

4) If you could remind yourself something about this time in years to come what would it be?

Never take anything for granted again, such as seeing family or friends or popping out for a meal, drink etc.

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

Nothing I can think of

6) What is a unique (or not) technique you have used to get you through this time?

Technology, it has been my life saver

7) What is something your readers might not know about you?

I have never broken a bone

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

Facetime and whatsapp

Thank you to

    I am so sorry that you’ve still not met your granddaughter, this is so unfair.

    Hopefully the new tiers and Christmas break will allow you some much needed time x x

      They have gone into tier 3, which is a nightmare although I am seriously considering going as have my granddaughters birthday presents here and they are all ok as not seen anyone.

    Totally agree, I will never take anything for granted again! First week of lockdown, way back when… I said I would never moan about having to mow the lawns again, and I haven’t., I cannot believe we have been going through this craziness for 35 weeks now, hopefully we won’t have to do another 35 more! Hope you get to see your grand-daughters soon! Sim x

    We’ve all learnt not to take things for granted although many will forget after this is all over. I’m grateful for WhatsApp too, it’s brilliant!!!

    My husband is really convinced this vaccine will give us some kind of normality in 2021. I am not so sure.

    Definitely in need of some normality. I’m so overwhelmed and I can’t seem to shift it, I’m forgetful and tired, I think it’s the fact that there’s absolutely no break from it.

      It is overwhelming the thing for me is there is no break from it, no one can make plans or see who they want to see

    Eesh! It’s crazy to think we’ve been in some sort of lockdown for 35 weeks!
    So sorry you are feeling fed up. I am too. I think it might be a little better when my fella goes back to work tomorrow and we have a little routine back in our lives. x

      That must be so hard on who to see at christmas as you just want to be normal and see everyone. Still and ongoing battle re her education and hopefully not too far away until I see my grandchildren

    These are tough times indeed and you must be missing seeing your new grand-daughter and missing the others’ brithday. I do hope we get back to normality soon enough now that there is a vaccine available

    I know what you mean about not taking anything for granted. I can’t believe alcohol can no longer even be served in Wales, not even with a meal in a restaurant. Everywhere has to shut at 6pm too. I can’t wait to go out for an evening meal with a drink when we can do so again.

      I just do not understand these varying rules and regulations, one area can do this but another area can’t hopefully things will return to normal soon
