For the past 68 weeks we have been in some form of lockdown. Yesterday all restrictions were lifted and being marked as Freedom Day. So where does it leave this linky, I was chatting with Sarah and Rebecca the other day about whether the linky is stopping or being renamed, we are carrying on but changing it slightly. But I do know we will be back in lockdown at some stage, I really do not think this is the end.
The questions we have been answering are
1) How are you feeling/coping?
Very mixed emotions here this week, I had my dentist appointment last Friday and we agreed that my root can stay put. This really cheered me up as I was not looking forward to having it taken out.
I had a long chat with C the other day regarding her starting college, I swear it is getting harder all the time. The person at our Local Authority, who is now meant to be working with us has not even said hello, I have sent in various emails. So I have now emailed the co-ordinator who helped us get the EHCP saying I need help. The college are lovely and I have been speaking with a lovely lady. Unfortunately, C can not do the course she wants, as you all know how badly she was let down with her education, she needs to sit her GCSE’s. So currently we are waiting to see the next step.
I have been suffering, and finally rang my GP yesterday, luckily it was a different Dr and she was lovely. But looks like I am going to have scans again at some point.
2) What have you been up to over the past 7 days?
Apart from the usual not a lot, the heat has really been wiping me out though so that has not helped me.
3) What is your favourite post of the past 7 days (it could be yours or someone else’s)?
I really can not think, I have been dealing with college and trying not to melt.
4) Do you have any plans for lockdown easing?
No new plans, although heading to Primark today with my Mum and Caitlin if she is up to it
5) What have you bought this week that others might like? (Especially if from a small business.)
I was on Facebook the other day and pictures of my granddaughters came up, and I missed them and wanted to send them a treat. They are going away next week, so said I would get an outfit each, this turned into 4 matching outfits.
Sunday was National Ice Cream day so I ordered us desserts from a local company.
6) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?
My family and friends
7) What would you like the future to know about life during a pandemic?
Never take life for granted, be grateful for the little things
8) Anything else you would like to mention?
Keep on going, take one day at a time and we will get through this
