It feels like day 10000 of being on lockdown with a child, we are surviving… on sweets and junk food! The days feel as if they are getting shorter, the time seems to be flying. I’m so glad I have a back garden to spend most of my time in but we are trying to go on walks and stay outside. I’m in the garden or in the pitch across from me as much as possible not only to waste time but to get as much exercise as possible as well as vitamin D. We enjoy playing with sand, playing with the hose, arts and crafts and play dough.
Grace doesn’t like me doing work from home, she is either crying in my ear, asking to get on my knee, asking for food or asking to get on my phone! No joke, biggest struggle I think I’m facing. All day every day with a 3-year-old not allowing me to do my work, I’m getting through it, probably not as fast as I hoped but I’m doing it and most of all I’m making the best memories with Grace.
I am so thankful to be spending so much time with Grace as sometimes I feel we don’t see or spend enough time with each other. This experience may be an absolute disaster and one of the hardest things EVER but we need to remember the good things: how few cars are on the road; how many people are out daily walking, running, jogging and cycling! Walking past people and smiling. All the rainbows and Easter eggs on people’s windows; waving at people going by! With shortages in shops people had to buy things they would never usually eat meaning people are experimenting with food more, as well as eating healthier! The lock down / covid19 has so many negatives but if we focus on them then it will be the most boring and draining next few months!!
