Monday

Lockdown lasted 75 days and now the kids are back to school and I am back to work so I think it is over – well kind of! I am going to have to rename the titles of my blog posts!

A busy day at work included a visit to the main hospital where I saw this lovely painting – I always like it.

This evening I went on a walk with my friend Emma. It was so nice to get out in the beautiful evening sunshine.

Lockdown Day 75

This morning the kids and I headed out for a walk with my sister and her kids and the crazy dog. It was lovely to go out with her and have a nice catch up. Dad came for lunch and then I packed up some more boxes.

The Little Mister is really proud of himself as he has now started reading chapter books to himself at night. He has discovered that reading is pleasurable and he is whipping through a big a night. I think we might have another bookworm on our hands!

Lockdown Day 74

I spent the morning sorting out The Little Miss’ room and ensuring that everything in there is ready to pack – she has so much stuff including a mountain of Barbies which she loves. The Mister spent all day on a Open University call for some sort of marking thing.

I went to help Dad to put away his Dandy trailer tent as he was selling it. I thought it was only appropriate to take a pic of him with the tent, and also one of him with the guy buying it. I am a little sad to see it go, but mainly because I have lots of good memories about it – I hope the new owners will have as much pleasure out of it as we did.

This afternoon we went back for a second viewing in the house we are hoping to buy – it is still lovely and mainly needs a but of cosmetic TLC.

This evening we went out for dinner with my Dad – the first time we have been out since March. It was fine but a little weird, including having to raise your hand like you were at school to ask to use the toilet. It was all very funny.

Lockdown Day 73

It has been a busy day today and I have managed to do a bit of sorting of boxes from the loft and dropping them off to charity.

The kids went to play at a friends house in the afternoon whilst I went to work and they sent me these lovely photos of them in the swimming pool. We are lucky to have lovely friends who love our kids so much.

The Little Mister has just made the most wonderous discovery – he has realised that he can read to himself in bed at night. He is getting through about half a book a night now!

Lockdown Day 71

This morning I motored through a load of work phone calls and emails to try and get as much done as possible.

After lunch I met my sister and the kids and we walked fro Icart to Saints Bay… it was a gorgeous walk although my sister had failed to mention quite how many steps there were on the way back. I am so unfit!

These beautiful flowers are a bit of a random pic but they were in my aunt and uncle’s garden and I though they were gorgeous.

After the walk I went down to Dad’s to help him put up his Dandy trailer tent. It is the end of an era as he has decided to sell it – we don’t really want it and he is just getting too old to use it. We have had so many lovely holidays in it and I have to admit that when I was emptying the cupboards I had a little cry as everything in it also made me think of Mum. Hopefully it is going to a really good home though.

Lockdown Day 70

Today was a lovely day and as The Mister was sleeping due to doing a nightshift the kids and I headed to the beach for a few hours.

It was beautiful although we have to try a couple of different beaches to find one which was sheltered. We ended up at Port Soif and it was gorgeous.

The kids chattered with other people ont he beach and played happily together and it was just what I needed. I didn’t want to do home-school today so I cheekily sent photos of the kids on the beach to their teachers….. their response was pretty positive to be honest!

Lockdown Day 69

This morning we did a quick run to the warehouse to take more stuff and we visited Grandpa’s office – I can’t believe he still has this sign in the office!

The Little Miss and I headed to town to buy her some sandals. I tried to her some nice pretty girly ones, but the only ones that fitted her with these ones… when she found out they flashed she was absolutely delighted!

Lockdown Day 68

Another great day. This morning was spent doing chores and The Mister sweated it out on a long run. We headed to the beach for lunch and met my niece and sister and then I walked home and I managed to complete my challenge of walking 75 miles in May. My total was 75.8 miles. Job done!

This evening I cooked an awesome roast dinner and then we did some more packing. It’s been a good day.

Lockdown Day 67

Wow! What a day!

We are now in Stage 4 of lockdown and whilst we still have to maintain 2m of social distance when we are shopping etc, there has been an acknowledgement that keeping a social distance of 1m when you are in small groups is acceptable. This means only with people you know well, and who you would be able to give details for contact tracing if one of you fell ill (I think that’s how it works!)

Today we have had the most beautiful gorgeous sunny day and we spent most of it at the beach! We met up with friend, the kids played om the paddleboard and then we headed back to our friends house for a BBQ. We finished the evening watching the SpaceX launch.

It was lovely. It felt like things are heading back to normal and I was sooooo grateful that we are in the situation due to the hard work and commitment of everyone on this island.

Lockdown Day 66

Today has been a gorgeous day and we have had a beach sandwich. To let The Mister get on for a walk the kids and I headed to the beach for high tide – it was absolutely gorgeous at Vazon.

At lunchtime we did a quick run to warehouse to drop off some more stuff – we finally have a date for sell this house so fingers cross it all goes ahead.

In the afternoon it was my turn to do some walk whilst The Mister headed back to Vazon with the kids for a few more hours before I met them down there after a lovely walk through the lanes.

Gorgeous day. Long may this beautiful weather continue.
