A busy rest of the week with two trips to work, decisions to be made and ensuring that everything just seamlessly carries on in readiness for students and staff return. My role in school is definitely a solitary one and the anxiety of missing something is profoundly felt, but I can only do what I can do and stressing about it won’t help.
Thursday was Georgina’s birthday, which her and Nicole had prepped food the evening before. The chicken gyros and lamb kofta looked and smelt amazing. The stuffed Portobello mushrooms too!
I woke early to decorate the kitchen and Pergola.
Georgina loved it and after breakfast and present opening we went to Norsey woods for a walk. The weather was beautiful as were the sight and scent of the bluebells.
The walk back also provided colour of different shrubs and trees.
I’d ordered a cocktail delivery from a local company, tappd cocktails and they were delivered safely and popped in the chiller.
Joe started the BBQ and we all got ready. The cooking started and the table was set.
The food was ready and even Kevin managed to join us!
The food was amazing, so flavoursome and certainly plentiful. Georgina is blessed with great friends and there were knocks on the door and social distanced felicitations, good wishes and presents. In fact, in light of lockdown, these visits are a testament to how loved she is, a little lady with a big heart and we are so proud of her.
Last but not least the cake and a fitting end to what had been a lovely day.
Work on Friday and a longer than expected foray! Luckily there was enough food from Thursday to sustain us and I enjoyed an espresso martini 🍸 and a quick loiter on the sun lounger.
The weather has been glorious but this is about to change so the next week will really challenge us all.
