My Answers

1 – How are you feeling/coping?

I am coping ok, not much has changed for us at the moment as we work from home, plus C is bedbound again so normal for us.  The only thing that is stressing me out at the moment is C, she is getting worse with her abdominal pains and we can not get treatment.  I spoke to our GP yesterday who although Consultant said they can, did not really help.

2 – What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?

I am lucky to still have work coming in and reviews to carry out, which is lovely and keeping me busy.  I am also taking the time to spend a bit of time working on my blog and social media (especially Pinterest) as that is something I need to work on.

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

We have my parents here who are both in their 70’s plus C so can not risk any contact or risk getting the virus in the house.  I am going out shopping once a week, although did manage an online delivery a couple of weeks ago.  I also pop down to the local shop for milk etc if we run out.  Everyone else is staying in.

I also usually re-order C’s medication by phoning our Chemist who will request from our GP and then text me when it is ready for collection.  I have now signed up to their online service which releases them from answering the phones, plus they are delivering so saves me going out.

4 – What advice do you have for others?

This is easy stay at home, only go out for essentials or your exercise.  Do not meet up with friends or family and stay safe.

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

I have only bought my food shop this week, as not had any need to order anything else.

6 – How has your routine been this week? (Question by Dont Cramp My Style) 

As I said earlier, it is pretty much business as usual here, so routine has been pretty normal.

7 – Have you planned anything for once lockdown is over in the past 7 days? (Question by Dont Cramp My Style)

As we have been staying in, we have still been chatting with friends and family.  Once this is over we will be going over to see our Granddaughter as missing my Nanny cuddles.  Plus have arranged a couple of nights out with friends.

  1. Being in lockdown is so difficult especially if you have older family members. I can’t wait for this to be over and to have the freedom again to go out and do simple things like going to the park or shopping

  2. I’m so sorry that C hasn’t been getting her treatment, it must be so tough for you guys. I’ve been trying to go shopping as little as possible but it can be tough can’t it!? x

    1. It is one of those things we have to deal with, would rather her be safe at home though. Shopping is a nightmare I am just summoning the energy now to go and do mine

  3. Glad you are doing okay, it’s such a difficult time. I’m really missing my family too and just trying to keep myself busy as much as possible but taking the time to do nothing if things get too much. It really makes you appreciate the small, simple things in life, doesn’t it?

  4. It’s great that you had something productive to do during the quarantine. To some, it might be hard for them to adjust.

  5. It sounds like you’ve got yr routine in these strange days. I hope C’s pain reduces soon – there are so many impacts elsewhere in the NHS because of Corvid-19 (friends cant access their usual consultants/tests delayed). I hope you’ve all managed to have as good an easter weekend as you can.
    love bec
    I joined up with the linky too 🙂

    1. Our routine has not really changed apart from the having to stay in so not been too much disruption. It has been lovely having hospital appointments via phone and not having the stress of going but she desperately needs her scan as her pain is getting worse. We have had a lovely relaxing weekend hope yours has been a good one as well x
