Tier 2 upgrade


Just a quick vent. London officially got upgraded into a Tier 2 on the lockdown scale today (to come into effect from midnight tomorrow) which means that we will no longer be able to mix inside with any other households, and that more places will be closing and people should be working from home. This…

A down day


To be honest, it has been a few of them in a row. I would say day to day I am pretty happy, and doing a good job at amusing myself; but sometimes I take a step back and have some time to think (or as of now have a whole heap of period hormones…

Hello old friend


So, it has been a little while. My apologies for not posting- life is...weird? It started to feel like a little bit of normality was creeping back in - we were able to see people a little more, and although we were super cautious (have tried to stay outside as much as possible, and not…

First hug!


Why am I literally the worst at thinking of catchy titles for my blogs? Eugh. Life is plodding along much the same as usual. Most of the country is opening up again now (apart from specific areas which have had to go into local lockdowns due to virus spikes), so we are being encouraged to…

Bring on October…


Sooo, a recap of my week thus far: We had it confirmed we will be furloughed until the end of October. Which means not starting back at work until the 1st of November. If we don't get recalled before then, it will mean we will have been furloughed for 7 months... that is insane, and…

First day on the tube…last day in the office


Enjoy transcripts of voicenotes over yesterday, which was my last day to go and clear my desk from the job I was made redundant from. I left out some details about specific names and places.  I specifically haven't blogged much about my redundancy and the details because I don't want that to be public, but…

Into the 4th Month


Hello, Lockdown life is weird. It is nice to have time at home, to get a break from working, to re-appreciate the things we have in life and the people we have connections with, but it is hard- to  deal with the stress, to stay separate, to fear, the unknown. A lot in my life…

My last day of work because of redundancy, a voice note.


During my redundancy process I sent SO MANY voicenotes to my friends, talking it out, venting, crying and more. I was disappointed by the way I was treated, and feel like I have passed my programme over to be torn up and ignored. It is hard to put blood sweat and tears for years into…

Taking joy from the little things


Two days in a row..shocking! There is nothing specific to say, I just wanted to denote that apart from all the BIG feelings, and the changes, and the thoughts on everything wider, there are also happy times. I have been both very happy, and also very sad, during this period, and I want that to…

4 Months since normality


Today is the 9th July 2020, which is exactly 4 months to the day since my little Brothers 9th birthday. On the weekend before we went to a safari zoo, and it was the last day of normality for me really! We were already being overly cautious...washing our hands about 10 times during the day,…
