Lockdown Journal : 13 May 2020


I don't get my kids. Some days, they are at each other constantly. Bickering and snapping at each other. Bossing each other around, pushing and generally being horrible to each other. And then there's other days, like today, where they are practically best friends. They've been in the garden for most of the day, planing Ninja Warrior (new obsession, they love the TV show!). And now, after almost 5 hours outside, they've come back in and agreed on something they would both like to watch on the TV. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining, I just wish there were more days where they were like this!

So today has been a pretty good day by all accounts, even though I woke at 5 having a coughing fit.  In-laws stopped by and left us some chocolate and a bone for Buddy.   I did some yoga this morning, I printed off a couple of simple routines and have started doing them morning and evening when the kids are occupied or in bed and D is dong the animals. So far, so good. My left hip hurts a little but I'm trying to keep on with it so I can improve my flexibility and hopefully shift some weight.  I wish I'd kept at it, all those years ago when I tried doing it before.

From today we have to wear face masks if we are unable to socially distance. And we can meet one person outside of the home provided that we do socially distance. L has suggested meeting up and going for a walk, I don't know when it will happen but I'm already looking forward to it!
