So here we are at the end of half-term, my goodness me this week sure has flown by. Given Bojo’s recent lockdown announcement I’m not too keen on the idea of returning to the regular routine.
I guess we must ‘crack on’, knuckle down and do our best, though how the heck our routine childcare arrangements with school pickups and drop-offs are going to work I have absolutely no idea as I can longer ask my Mother-in-law to do her daily duties. I guess it’ll be what it’ll be and workplaces, businesses, and such-like will just have to be understanding and offer a little flexibility.
It’s such a mess, isn’t it? I only wish that this week would have lasted a little longer as I was quite happy spending time at home with family and enjoying huggles with the hound. Not only have I got the national guidelines to stick to but I’ve also got a road closure to contend with, a very poorly Father to care for, and on top of all that I’ve somehow got to get two kids to school and both Paul and I need to be in work – it’s not entirely easy but we’ll fathom it… somehow.
I knew winter wasn’t going to be easy but I never expected for it to be this hard – who’d have thought that we’d be counting down to Christmas whilst in the midst of a lockdown?! It’s crazy and quite frankly I’ve just about had enough of juggling what seems to be a sloppy mess.
Thankfully we’ve got each other, and the dog of course, and who could resist the creature comfort of hugging a hound?!
Thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
