Discussing - I seem to have spent a lot of time this week discussing how to safely manage the children when they are back in school. There is a lot to be considered from PPE to transport and lesson planning to attendance. It is like a military operation and we only have 27 out of 122 at the moment. The teaching staff are still on a two week rota but it's back to work full time for the office ladies. I spent a lot of time getting things ready for the children coming back only to find out, last Friday, that they wouldn't be coming back the following week as the R number for the North West was over 1 and didn't conform to Government Guidelines. Never mind. We're all set for when they do eventually come back.
Craving - Seeing our grandson. He's 4 this month and it will be the first time we haven't been there for his birthday. Unless the rules change by the end of the month we will have wait for our hugs.
Buying - Apart from food the only thing I have bought recently has been a new set of shelves for the hall. I ordered them at the end May and they should be delivered on 11 July!! It's a two man job and can only be delivered to the front door. They can't unpack it and aren't allowed to take the packaging away. It looks like I'll have to chop the cardboard into small pieces to get it in the recycling bin as a trip to the tip is still taking three hours.
Feeling - A little overwhelmed and restless. I can feel myself heading back to where I was three years ago and I don't like it one bit. Luckily I have a great circle of family and friends here to help me through it and cheer me up when needed. I am indeed blessed.
Wearing - Last week it was shorts and t-shirts but this week has been cropped off trousers and jumpers. It felt really strange to wear socks the other day after not wearing them for so long.
