This isn’t going to be a long one but I thought I’d check in and see how everyone was. The last couple of weeks/months have been a complete blur and this is the first chance that I’ve had to write any sort of post to let you all know whats been going on. You would think with everyone being on lock-down that I would have plenty of time to post at least something but the sad fact is that working in retail in what is classed as an essential shop, I’m a key-worker and because as a company we have had to furlough some of our staff, I am doing a lot more hours in work. It actually feels like I don’t leave the place sometimes.
There are quite a few of them missing from this image but these people make up my work family. The ones that get me through the days when I’m not at home away from my actual family! Love them all!
I don’t think I would be able to cope if I was stuck in the house though. I mean even on my days off I have to get out; even if it’s just for a walk around the block to catch a few Pokemon haha. What I’m really finding hard though is not being able to go and see my mum and my Grandmother. Being a key-worker and working with the public all the time it just isn’t safe for either of them. I think my mum would be OK but with my Granny just about to turn 93 in a couple of weeks, I don’t think I would be able to cope if I was to pass anything onto her. As hard as it is I think I would rather not see her for a few months than not see her at all.
Just a wee image of the lady everyone knows from my home town! 93 years old… hard to believe!
I do have a question about something I’m sure a lot of people are having problems with. How do you ever to get your kid to sit down and do any of the work that has been set out for them by their school. I think I have managed to get Tom to do about about a weeks worth of work and that’s it. It’s really starting to worry me because this is the time he should be starting to get ready for the transfer tests when he goes back to school for year 7. Not that he wants to do the test. I know a lot of people will be in the same boat but I’m just worried that he will fall way behind the rest of his class.
On a different note, I’ve been trying to think of different posts that I could possible do. Something that would be a little different to what I was doing before. I know I was suppose to be doing a challenge post that my OH had given me but with the recent developments it’s hard for me to get out and actually get the images I want. For the latest challenge post ‘RUST’ I think I have managed to get two images. Not good. Anyway, I’m thinking of starting back with a weekly post about what I’ve been up to that week. It probably won’t be that interesting to read, but it will keep me focused and keep me blogging which is what I need at the minute. Plus, it might help me take my mind off things that are going on in the world.
Anyway folks… stay home, stay safe and take care! xx
