Sunday Day 75 – 15th March
Swimming in the morning and then chilling in the afternoon watching a bit of TV.
Monday Day 76 – 16th March
Did my weekly IGTV on an Islamic book for kids and later in the week managed to write a review on it too: Under the Ramadan Moon. Didn’t do much else!
Tuesday Day 77 – 17th March
Debated whether to cut the grass and went for it as rain was forecast for later in the week! Rosie is venturing out too now the sun is making an appearance.
Wednesday Day 78 – 18th March
Had to take an unexpected trip to Leicester. Dad was saying he was going to go with my brother but had to be blunt with him saying that if he catches the virus and they are overwhelmed then he will be at the bottom of their list of people they are trying to save and will likely get no help. That was enough to make him sit down and hopefully he will take the self isolation seriously now.
Didn’t really take a picture of much else except for Rosie, although I think I might be cheating as think this was taken tomorrow.
Thursday Day 79 – 19th March
Went to karate today knowing it was likely to be her last lessons before the karate place shuts down. Although it is belt testing at the weekend. As the belt testing is changing to 1-2-1’s rather than in groups it was suggested that she does her belt testing today..agreed to that as it would save us returning at the weekend when I really don’t want to. Bee is now a blue belt.
Friday Day 80 – 20th March
Final day of school. A lot of children were crying and you could see some of the staff trying to hold back tears. Bee had tears in her eyes and then it was full blown crying. Made me feel quite emotional too! She really wasn’t happy in the evening and then she didn’t sleep well either.
Saturday Day 81 – 21st March
First day of staying at home. Felt extremely weird as we are never at home on a Saturday except for the evening. Worked out our finances in the morning and provided we can get a mortgage break we should just about survive financially if hubby doesn’t work. I don’t want him to as he has health issues too and under guidelines he should also be self quarantining. Thankfully I have some savings which will help if he doesn’t go to work.
Am allowing the girls to chill this weekend and then during the weekdays there will be some kind of routine with schoolwork too. Bee has been a bit miserable not being able to get out and go to karate..but dug out the Wii Balance Board from the back of the cupboard and put the wii on for her..that soon cheered her up.

Gorgeous photos! It does look like a lovely, relaxing Sunday afternoon.
What is it with our parents not taking self isolation seriously! I’ve had to have words with my dad too this past week!
It is so sad about the kids finishing school especially with it being so quick and unexpected.
Stay safe and take care x

Think that was what made it so sad. They didn’t get to say a proper goodbye and it is her last year at this school
So hard to stop older people going out isn’t it. Ours are still going out shepherding which doesn’t mean seeing anyone, and they’ve also been to the farm shop when needed. I find it strange being at home but knowing you don’t have the freedom to go out if you want. The new normal I suppose.
Well done Bee on her blue belt
These are strange times indeed
It’s an incredibly hard time for all as we struggle to adjust to the new reality but after speaking to some friends whose family work in the NHS and knowing the reality, what you said to your dad is true and sadly a lot of the doctors and nurses will suffer from PTSD from having to choose between patients.
We can all do our bit and make life easier for them and the NHS by staying in and supporting each other.

I said that to hubby…that it is going to affect the staff afterwards. Sad times.
It has certainly been a miserable week! It must be very strange for the kids to have adjust so suddenly to life without school and hobbies. It’s good to hear that your husband is able to stop work and quarantine for a while, that must be a relief.
Well done to Bee on her blue belt. Am I right in thinking the next belt is brown? I did karate way back in the day and I recall 3rd kyu as the first level of brown belt.

Her next one is purple I think..then brown, then brown and white and then black.
Well done on being a blue belt B. Mine swim at a swim club and have been busy training for some gala’s but sadly they have all been cancelled and swimming finished on Friday
Oh that is such a shame!
Well done Bee on getting her blue belt. I felt quite tearful on Friday too – so hard for the children leaving school and their friends and not knowing when they’ll be back. Glad getting the Wii Balance Board out helped cheer Bee up. #project366
It was a horrible week and this one isn’t much better!
Thank goodness your dad listened, you really do not need to be worrying about something that can be avoided.
Hopefully the girls will settle to what will be a new normal.
Well done to Bee on her blue belt
The eldest loves being at home…Bee will find it more difficult
I think this is going to hit a lot of families financially. We are very lucky to be able to work from home at the moment. Well done you o being blunt. To be honest I have had to have a similar conversation with family members. Well done on the blue belt Monkey has started Karate since I was last joining in and just got his red belt which he is super excited about.
Its so difficult for the kids stopping school. We have been using houseparty to wifi call Monkey’s friends. Its really helped x

Aww well done on his red belt!
Lovely and well-taken pictures (especially of Rosie, since there’s alot of Rosie this week). I love the cover of the book. That quite a harsh reality for your Dad to know. Congrats to Bee! Yeah it’s tough that schools and colleges are closed now. Stay strong, Bee! I hope there aren’t any financial issues in the future. Bee can also practice karate at home, if that’s possible

Yes her karate school are holding online classes
Well done to Bee on her blue belt – nice to have that done before the shutdown. I’ve finally managed to get Dad to stay at home, but it’s tough isn’t it? Hope your Dad does what he is supposed to now. Glad that you can manage for a bit – I’ve been doing my sums too.

Thankfully the parents seem to be listening now
What beautiful photos. Sounds like a lovely and relaxing afternoon. The older generation do not seem to be taking this as seriously as everyone else do they? Here’s hoping they will. It is hard for the kids finishing school so abruptly x
Yes it definitely was hard finishing so suddenly!
Sometimes parents behave like kids. My husband is on the phone to his parents every day, trying to make them understand not to go out. Sorry to hear Bee was upset about the school closure. My son is missing school as well. Big well done to Bee for getting the blue belt, that’s a great achievement.
Rosie is a beautiful photo model.
Thankfully the parents seem to be listening now
Sorry to hear Bee is struggling without her activities, I hope she’s settling into a new routine, Good luck with the mortgage break and your husbands health and job. Love the photo of Rosie and Bee together.
