Our second week of home school without our key teacher person for three days of the week felt a little easier. We got ahead of the game by being a day in hand with our work meaning camping at Gram’s could happen for the big two again and I got to feel like I had a day off from the teaching – which isn’t really teaching as I don’t generally know any of the answers and have to learn them all as we go!
The weather hasn’t been QUITE as glorious but we have still enjoyed outdoors and having fun in the sun when it did come out to play and we have felt an ever increasing sense of normality. I still don’t want to go to the shops though and feel there is no need and I still don’t want to get too close to people which actually is government guidelines anyway but so many people seem to be ignoring that. Looking around and it very definitely seems like I’ in the minority by keeping a social distance but keep it we will!
This week marked the one hundredth in lockdown on Tuesday, imagine that! 100 days of living differently and like we could have never imagined before. It has eased and we have our bubble with my Mum as well as careful meet ups with others but essentially we are still living very differently and 100 days seems like a massive mile stone. We have just 2 weeks and a couple of days left now until the summer holidays when I will finish this diary and begin my usual and annual summer holiday one. I realise this year it will be pretty similar to this one as there will be no Spanish holiday or massive day trips but I have to mark the end somewhere and as our government have pledged to have all children back in school come September the summer holidays beginning seems like a good place to say our lockdown diary will finish.
It definitely doesn’t feel like the ending of this period however and I know that we will have many ongoing elements to our now changed lives even after September. Funny to think about!
