Sunday Day 82 – 22nd March
Not much happening today. Let the girls chill before we started ‘home schooling’ from tomorrow. Girls most of the day watching TV and playing on the Wii. While I cleaned out the conservatory ready for Bee to use the table to do her school work.
Monday Day 83 – 23rd March
First day of staying at home started well. The girls did PE with Joe and then the eldest did her schoolwork in her room. Her school her pretty good at setting work. I printed out some maths sheets from Twinkl for Bee and also did some Islamic Studies. In the afternoon she did a karate session as they are now holding classes online. So all in all a good day. However at the end of the day Bee decided it would be a good idea to jump off the sofa. Her foot twisted badly and she was in a lot of pain. Her dad said it was likely to be a sprain and bandaged it up a bit. In normal circumstances I probably would have taken her to A&E but decided to see if the pain eased over the next few days before venturing out to the hospital. This is because the government have also now put in a lot of restrictions about people going out….I hope people listen.
Tuesday Day 84 – 24th March
Spent a lot of the day on the jigsaw. Bee couldn’t do much as she was still in pain. Everyone kept saying its a sprain and they can take days/weeks to get better…..but having seen how her foot had twisted my gut was telling me that something was wrong. However I decided to give it one more night.
Wednesday Day 85 – 25th March
Bee woke up and still couldn’t put her foot down without being in agony. Even though everyone was saying it will only be a sprain I tried to phone the doctor. I couldn’t get past the receptionist, who said the surgery is closed and no face to face appointments. I really didn’t like her attitude. Friends on Facebook suggested I try 111. I phoned them but was on hold for ages. In the end I phoned the walk in centre direct and they were very helpful. After checking that no-one in the family had a temperature or cough they said to bring her in and press the buzzer. We had to wait outside until the nurse was ready but thankfully it was only a 10 minute weight. She immediately ordered an x-ray after seeing how much pain she was in. After another wait outside after the x-ray, she took us in to tell us it is a small fracture. She put a boot on her and said she would refer us to the fracture clinic…however she didn’t know how long it would be until we receive an appointment as she wasn’t even sure the clinic was still open due to the virus. But as the fracture is so small it is unlikely she needs a cast. I felt so bad for not taking her sooner and letting her suffer for over a day.
I also managed to finish my jigsaw today!
Thursday Day 86 – 26th March
Bee is a bit upset that she can’t do her karate sessions online – they are doing them daily. Today she spent most of the day on the sofa watching TV with her foot elevated. The pain has eased and she didn’t need any painkillers today but she asked for some before bed as she said it was hurting when I took her boot off for bed. We just chilled and also played Splash! which we were sent to review.
Friday Day 87 – 27th March
Bee got some post from her school today. They have sent log in details for Purple Mash. An educational app in which she can keep in touch with the school also – they can set work and she can submit it. I was grateful for that as I was wondering what to do with her everyday. She immediately had to go on the app! Bee was much chirpier today and no pain killers needed.
Saturday Day 88 – 28th March
Got a phonecall in the morning from the bank as I had submitted a mortgage payment holiday form earlier in the week. They agreed to the break which helped take away some stress. We now don’t have to worry about mortgage payments until July. Hopefully things will have calmed down by then and hubby is back at work.
Got the girls to play monopoly today. Eldest compared it to torture!
