Phew, what a mad ten days, testing area set up and running. Not without challenge but at least we did it. A great team effort all round: 55 hour week all told. I am rightly proud of myself too in galvanising the staff and volunteers to make this happen, even though, truth be told, I don’t think schools should be doing this. One positive is all tests are negative, but the jury is out as to whether the results are all valid.
In other news my parents and mother in law have had their vaccines, so that bodes well, for both them and us in the longer term.
My son and daughter-in-law are settled in Tasmania and her new job started on Monday and he has secured employment starting next Tuesday. So exciting for them both and we are both proud and excited! I do hope that we can travel later this year to visit them and also to be able to hug them too!
I’m starting to plan for this year as when restrictions are eased I want to be in a place that we can move into action with plans made. The work on our home is all but finished. Carpets were ordered and delivered last week and I’m hoping they will be fitted next week. The blind situation has still to be rectified, but not yet as the company has gone into lockdown. I’m hopeful that they could be up by April/May when the lighter mornings and evenings kick in.
Next will be the dressing part, the part I love: accent colours, mirrors, pictures and ornaments. My challenge is to reduce what I have into a few well chosen pieces rather than a scattergun approach of all. I also want to do a gallery wall: lots of planning to do for that so that it is aesthetically pleasing. These touches are what makes a house a home. Furniture, probably will be lockdown delayed, but I have April/May as a completion point in mind.
We’ve eaten well over the last few weeks and Georgina has excelled herself with her choice of meals to cook for us!
We had a dusting of snow yesterday and the garden has had that delicate frosting on more than one occasion.
I have signed up to Freddie’s flowers and they last longer than 7 days, and it is delightful to have fresh flowers in the house. I love that you get information on each flower and how to arrange them. Not sure whether this is a treat or an indulgence-probably both 😉🤩
River is blossoming and keeping mum and dad on their toes. Angel when asleep but we all know how easily those moments are switched. Put into perspective, these weeks are but a short time of their life and they will get through it 💕💕💕💕
This year there is so much to look forward to, and undoubtedly there will be change, but I’m looking forward to that manifesting itself, and I will be ready for it!
Enjoy your week!
