Lockdown. Here we go again. But how do we all feel about it?
As we are getting closer and closer to the holiday period. The more I am worrying and getting anxious. This year has been tough and all I want is a ‘normal’ Christmas for my family and as time goes on the less that is looking likely. Everyone’s idea of normal is different, I know that. What I consider normal will not be the same for everyone else. I just want to be able to visit family without restrictions and no worries. That isn’t going to happen anytime soon and I am not sure if we are going to have ‘normal’ before the end of the year.
I saw a quote on social media that read..
‘We are not all in the same boat but we are all in the same storm.’ and that couldn’t describe the situation more perfectly. Everyone is going through different emotions. We are all in the same storm and that storm is unknown. That is the hardest thing for me. If Elsa asks me what is going on. I don’t know what to tell her. I don’t know. I really don’t know.
When it comes to work. Once again, it is the unknown. Jonny is a carpet fitter and we are not sure about his work and if it classes as construction. Throughout the last lockdown, he didn’t work which just makes it more complicated.
And then there is school. Elsa loves school, she always has done. So it makes it so hard to keep her off. I don’t want to keep her off and set her back in her education but at the same time, I don’t want her to get Covid or bring it home. It is such a horrible decision to make and as it stands, she has to continue to go. I feel for every parent, teacher and member of staff within schools all over the UK, that just know what to do .
None of this is easy. The whole year has been hard and I thought that we were going to be in a better situation then we are in right now. I guess it is back to writing blog posts about our lockdown as a family and how we are doing.
I am doing ok. It is alot to take in and the stress is alot. I hate the uncertainity.
I hope everyone is ok. I hope everyone has their dream Christmas. I hope that everyone stays safe.
