Currently - September

 


It's time again, to play along with Anne from In Residence for the monthly "Currently".

This month we are:

Appreciating, All the hard work that has been done by the amazing staff at work.  They have gone above and beyond to get the school ready for our children returning tomorrow.  We have 122 children with autism and moderate learning difficulties, most of whom haven't been in school since March.  We also have 22 new children starting which can be a difficult time for them.

The staff are the most dedicated people I have ever met and it is a pleasure to work with them all.


Anticipating, What the scales will say when I go back to Slimming World.  I have a feeling they are going to give me really bad news.  Try as I may I just can't seem to shift the last few pounds I've put on during lockdown and the summer holidays.  Still, in the grand scheme of things this year, it really isn't anything to worry too much about.  And I do try to worry less!!


CollectingI'm not a collector of anything but I had great fun recently collecting shells with my Grandson.  He's wasn't as interested as I was, as a big puddle in the sand was much more fun.  We found loads of different shells on a little stretch of the local beach and took them home for washing before he took them back to York with him.

StartingTo look at the possibility of going away for a weekend.  I'm still not 100% happy with being away from home but our son is 30 this year and we wanted to get together to celebrate.  I'm currently looking at Airbnb places where we get the whole place to ourselves.  That way I can clean when I get there and take my own pillow!!


Finishing, 
I'm trying to finish all the crochet projects I have on the go.  At the moment I only have two to finish, although, one has been on the go since 2015!!

  1. How can he possibly be 30? That definitely calls for a celebration! I hadn't realised our sons were the same age.
    We've been so lucky with the Airbnb places that we have rented so far and we will definitely be taking our own pillows for our next trip to Chichester!

    1. It's our older son (my step-son) who's 30. Our other son is 23 :0)

  2. Our schools haven't opened back up as yet & that date keeps getting pushed back. The province over from ours, Quebec, their schools went back a couple weeks ago. Maybe our schools could borrow your school's plans for safe re-opening because that's our hold up - no agreement that our plan will work. I recently saw Christmas ornaments made from the fan shaped shells, how fun to be able to collect with your Grandson, even if the puddle is more intriguing.

    1. We've found a lovely place on airbnb not far from where our son lives and we're really looking forward to going now.

  4. I think AirBnB is a great choice right now with COVID. We did that back in June and felt much safer than in and out of a hotel. Shell collecting is so fun. One of my favorite things to do on the beach.

    1. Just the thought of not staying in a hotel makes me feel calmer. I hope you enjoyed your time away.

  5. Hope you are able to find the perfect place (and way) to get away! I've been trying to make plans as well - but nothing is really working as of yet! Definitely need to celebrate 30!! Fun -

  6. Feeling so grateful for all school staff and teachers right now too - my son is finally back in the classroom after 6 months, and though it is a bit strange still with masks and other protocols, we're so happy for it. Hope you can get your celebration - we just did an Airbnb in driving distance last weekend to visit my sister and baby nephew before we got exposed to the potential school germs, and it felt like a safe way to get away, and not need to go out for meals or anything. A change of scenery turned out to be great!
