With us all getting used to life in a lockdown, Tuesday have become the day for a lovely linky – life in a lockdown. This is where bloggers answer the same questions sharing their week. You can find my post from last week here.
1) How are you feeling/coping?
I am struggling with a lot of things at the moment. Mostly watching C suffer with her abdominal pains that are getting worse and no support due to lockdown. I am going through a few emotions if I am honest. But I do know these will pass.
Plus my broken tooth I spoke about last week is really affecting me, I hate opening my mouth as you can see it staring at you.
2) What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?
Working, housework pretty much the same as last week. I did make some bread rolls with C which she enjoyed. I also had a lovely Facetime chat with my granddaughter, well I got a few words here and there as she was busy as her Mum was refilling the paddling pool and she was playing in it.
3) How are you dealing with everything at the moment – are you self-isolated, going out for essentials etc? Has this changed?
We are self isolating, I managed to get a delivery last week with Iceland, and have another booked for this week which is such a relief. I only pop down to our local garage for milk when we need it.
I am having problems with both my parents and my Husbands Mum. My Dad got a letter saying he should stay in and isolate for 12 weeks. I registered him with the Government site. His words he is fine only borderline, he had prostate cancer which he is in remission for and it spread to his lymph nodes plus a mini stroke. My parents are talking about going to Lidl shopping and B&Q and a garden centre. I have offered to get their shopping, I have argued about how selfish they are being, I have pleaded with them you name it I have tried every angle.
Then there is my Mother in law, she has her cousin drive over to see her about 20 miles to take her shopping. Told her that is not-self isolating and she said it is as they both live alone. Then she goes out locally with her neighbour I had to hang up. We are not close enough but I have offered to order her shopping online.
4) What advice do you have for others?
Stay home, only go out if you have to. If you need milk, bread etc then just one person go and get it
5) What have you bought this week that others might like? Especially if from a small business.
I have not brought anything this week apart from essentials
6) How has your routine been this week? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)
My routine has been the same through out, it is normal living for us
7) Have you planned anything for once lockdown is over in the past 7 days?? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)
Cuddles with my granddaughter if she will stay still long enough, have bribed her with chocolate to give Nanny a cuddle though
