Life In A Lockdown Linky – Week 42

Here we are again, somehow it is Tuesday, which means it is time for my Life In A Lockdown Linky post.  Can you believe we are now into week 42 and still going strong.

I have no idea how a week can go so fast, when you are stuck home in lockdown.  Somehow the weeks are speading by.  If you are interested in joining in the linky the questions are below.

The questions

1) How are you feeling/coping?
2) What have you been up to over the past 7 days?
3) What do you think the coming weeks and months might hold for you (or the world)?
4) If you could remind yourself something about this time in years to come what would it be?
5) What have you bought this week that others might like? Especially if from a small business.
6) What is a unique (or not) technique you have used to get you through this time?
7) What is something your readers might not know about you?
8) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?

1) How are you feeling/coping?

Last week, I was feeling deflated, just because of lockdown and more plans cancelled. I am feeling a little happier now, just fed up of not being able to make any plans.

Last week I had an ultra sound scan, ready for an appointment tomorrow.  Luckily hospital appointments are going ahead, I thought they may have been postponed.

Also now people are getting the vaccines, it is making me feel more positive for the future, my parents had their first vaccine last Friday

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

Apart from the usual, I seem to be the agony aunt of the family and spent time sorting problems and more for the kids

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

I am hoping that with the vaccines, things will start to calm down, and we can start to see friends and family again

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

How you do not appreciate just how much freedom we have, also simple things like shopping or popping out for a coffee.  This was something we can not do now.  Also seeing friends and family when we want

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

Nothing apart from bits for hubbys birthday and food shopping

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

Technology, I say it every week but it really is my saviour

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

Many years ago I used to work in a Building Society and was involved in a raid, even worse about 15 minutes before we shut on a Friday afternoon.

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

Technology, we could not go on our cruise for hubbys birthday but FaceTime helped celebrations

Thank you to

    Lots of people I know have now had the vaccine and I am hoping that things will get back to normal once everyone has had their dose and I can’t wait for that to happen

      It does seem that more people are having the vaccine now, and hopefully things will start returning to normal

    I really hope they speed up vaccines as my 90 year old grandad still hasn’t had an invitation for his yet. Although a few people I know have had theirs due to age or their job x

      My Dad is on the vulnerable list but my Mum is 78 and they were both called. I think it is down to your local nhs trust as they know others older who have not been called

    I’m so grateful for technology too; it’s enabled me to keep in touch with friends and family and keep doing my job.

    This lockdown is still causing many of our plans to be cancelled, hope everything goes well with the hospital appointment.

    I am glad you are able to have your hospital appointments, I think for many it is really important that these carry on whenever possible.

      I was relieved as well, my poor dad has one next week and has been told it will be 3 hours instead of the usual half hour, but as it is cancer check up and he is vulnerable they must be taking extra safety
