Here we are another week in lockdown, can you believe we are into week 10 of the lockdown linky. I am loving taking part in this linky, and it is great looking back at my replies to the prompts from week 1. You can find last weeks post here. So how has this past week been in our household.
1) How are you feeling/coping?
I am feeling very tired and battered this week. The lockdown itself is just normal living now, same each week staying in and staying safe and only going out for essentials. I am worried sick about C, she is really in so much pain and it is heartbreaking watching her and calls to our GP or Consultant get us nowhere. Although I did finally manage to get her appointment with her Consultant moved forward and we have that today thankfully. My sons are also keeping me busy as well, although the middle one seems to be ok now. The eldest lets just say he has pushed me to my limit and beyond now and I can’t take anymore.
I also had a nightmare with my website, it had been getting slow and I spent ages trying various things to speed it up. Then it just stopped and took 20 minutes to load up. As it was a theme I had paid for I contacted the developers who suggested what I had already done so not much help. It took me ages to find a theme I liked, so decided to go for a free WP theme until I found another one. I actually quite like this one and considering the paid version of it.
2) What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?
This week apart from work it is my kids. I also am wondering if C could have an intolerance to something so have been looking at various intollerances. By doing this I have discovered quite a bit, ME can cause lactose or gluten intolerance, and also long term illness can also cause this. I have tried C on lactose free milk, she says it hurts less then. So armed with what I know I am going to be asking her Consultant to go down this route.
3) How are you dealing with everything at the moment – are you self-isolated, going out for essentials etc? Has this changed?
We are doing the same thing each week, we are self isolating, I get my shopping delivered and only pop down to our local garage if we need bread or milk etc. We have been going on a couple of walks (when it hasn’t been raining) which has been lovely
4) What advice do you have for others?
With things relaxing it is just keep safe and remember social distancing, bit if you don’t need to go out stay in.
5) What have you bought this week that others might like? Especially if from a small business.
I treated C to some new canvas shoes, she has always been pug mad, and a couple of years ago I found a pair of pug printed canvas shoes on a site where everything was £5, she loved them but they got ruined recently. I managed to find a pair on ebay and treated her to them.
6) How has your routine been this week? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)
All over the place, with C being so ill and our eldest from when I woke up on Friday morning until I went to bed and finally asleep about 3 am Monday morning, I had about 3 hours sleep. I did crash out last night but still feel all over the place. I need to get things back on track or I will end up ill
7) Have you planned anything for once lockdown is over in the past 7 days?? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)
Apart from what I have mentioned in previous weeks, our middle son is coming to visit and bring the grandkids to stay so am really looking forward to that.
How has your week been?
