Life In A Lockdown – Week 8

Another week has passed and we are still in lockdown which funnily enough seems like normal life now.  So how has life been in week 8.  If you missed last weeks life in a lockdown post you can find it here.

1) How are you feeling/coping?

Honestly I am fed up and stressed, it has been a week where it has just been one thing after another. Not being able to arrange appointments is hard and it has been battle after battle.  Just need things to get back to normal.

2) What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?

Apart from work and all the normal daily jobs, we have been going out for drives and having walks locally to get some fresh air and get out of the house.  We had a lovely trip out on Saturday, we were both craving a coffee so went to the drive through Starbucks which had a queue a mile long.  So ended up driving to Hampton Court and got a coffee from a coffee shop and went and sat by the river to drink it which was lovely.

I have also been busy with sorting C’s education for next year which is still a battle.  Also her medical issues as well, plus both the boys are calling on us for things as well.

3) How are you dealing with everything at the moment – are you self-isolated, going out for essentials etc? Has this changed?

We are isolating still apart from our trip out on Saturday which is the first time we have been in a position like that.  But even then you were served from outside and everyone was keeping social distancing.  Still managing to get my shopping delivered so only popping out for essentials if we need them to top up.

4) What advice do you have for others?

It is the same as every week stay safe and stay at home.  We all want to see our friends and family, and with the new lockdown rules still be aware of social distancing.

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

We had another ice cream delivery last week which was lovely, apart from that I have not brought anything.  Apart from supplements for C.

6) How has your routine been this week? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)

Pretty much the same as last week apart from enjoying some fresh air and walks

7) Have you planned anything for once lockdown is over in the past 7 days?? (Question by Don’t Cramp My Style)

Nothing new apart from seeing family and friends

How has your week in lockdown been, why not share your week with us.

    1. I know, I have managed to get a message to C’s consultant and she has arranged a CT scan for this Thursday. At least things are starting to open up a bit now. Just got to get her in and out of the hospital as easily as I can without catching anything

  1. We’re still under basically in a lockdown here. I only go out once a week to pick up essentials for my family and my parents. I have no plans as we’ll be here at home for a while. My advice is to make the best of the time with family.

  2. As I mentioned on Bex’s blog, I’ve not felt too frustrated lately (not as much as I used to) as it’s hard not being able to see and hug all of my family. But I’m quite lucky to have at least seen them from a distance and I feel a lot more like ‘you do you’ at the moment. If people want to be silly and risk their lives, then hopefully they will be the only ones that suffer. I just hope those of us that are taking precautions won’t suffer from their actions… x

  3. A good drive out can do a world of good for sure. At least you managed to get a coffee too. To be honest I think everyone is getting a bit fed up now x

  4. A lovely honest account of lockdown. I am yet to see someone who is not going to run straight to family and friends when we can it’s certainly put things into perspective

    1. We have been quite lucky this week and will explain more in next weeks post but managed to get messages through to our Consultant and got things moving x

  5. I think sometimes we all need to allow ourselves to go out as long as we keep safe doing it – being at home all the time isn’t fun and even as someone who is anti-social I am finding myself missing social interaction.
