Lockdown Diary #3 – Week Six!
It’s been a week of whirl again, getting used to a new baby does do that to you. Posie has slept quite well compared to the others but still it is tiring and with lots of waking in the night. But we have been keeping cosy inside as the weather has been so snowy, enjoying moments outside when we can bare to be that cold (sledging for the big two with Jonny while Raffie and Posie and I just watch for a few minutes then retreat) and trying to do home school as per.
Jimmy is hating it and we are too. Florence gets on with it but misses her friends and has been going for socially distanced walks with them one at a time to try and feel normal and Raffie continues to be stuck at home but doesn’t really know why. The boys have it hardest but for the three of them it’s pretty rubbish and with Posie it’s not how it should be either. She should be showered with her Grandparents kisses and isn’t. She should be meeting friends and being held by all but can’t be and I’m missing real life.
Still… We are lucky and have lots of very positive things going on including loving one more member of our gang who has just fit in like a missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle that we didn’t know wasn’t there. But now that she is the picture is all the more beautiful and we don’t remember life before we had it!
And our other girl, our first baby, won a place at the high school she has been working towards getting a bursary for for months. She has put in so much hard work and effort that there was no luck involved when she got the letter to change her life. A 90% bursary and she’s off to spread her wings come September with all the doors open to her. We couldn’t be more proud of the one who made us parents, she will love every second and she deserved every single one!
Gram’s been staying and Valentines weekend means our family is filled with love. We are lucky!
