Sunday 17 January – Day 17
Tried to get on with some blog stuff but didn’t get very far. Did manage to get a reel done for Instagram for some sun catchers we were sent to review.
Monday 18 January – Day 18
Dad had a hearing test today (the one that was cancelled last week with 30 mins notice) so took him to that. He had to have a hearing test and then an hour later the consultant rang. Dad has conductive hearing loss so he now needs to go back so the consultant can look in his ears and he has also been referred for hearing aids. Just need to wait for both appointments now.
Tuesday 19 January – Day 19
Been feeling a bit ‘meh’ so spent pretty much all day in my bedroom while the kids got on with their classes. Just felt like I have had enough with all this and really want some normality in our lives. Rosie pretty much reflected my mood.
Wednesday 20 January – Day 20
Mum has been having some issues with a really bad rash on her face. When I phoned the doctors on Monday the receptionist took the decision that my mum didn’t need to speak to anyone with medical expertise and told her to go the pharmacist. She went there and they took one look at her and said she needed a doctor so a staff member went with her to the surgery and they said she needed to call again on Tuesday and see if she manages to get an appointment. I rang her on Tuesday and managed to get her a telephone consultation. The nurse, without even seeing her face said its probably dry skin and she needs to get a cream. Mum got confused and thought she was going to be given a prescription. When we went in the evening there was no record of a prescription….so this morning I had to ring again…..and apparently she was given the name of a cream and she had to go and pay for it herself and not on prescription…..so I went and collected it for her. Will see if it helps over the weekend and if it doesn’t call them again.
Thursday 21 January – Day 21
Took mum for her vaccine at the local surgery – both parents have now had their first dose. Then in the afternoon had a bit of a pamper session with Bee, she wanted her nails painted.
Friday 22 January – Day 22
The sun was out and the temperature wasn’t too bad so dragged the kids out to the embankment after their online classes to feed the swans, duck and geese…..they were really hungry and came running and some were brave enough to snatch the food from our hands. Will go back with more next time as felt a bit sorry for them if they were that hungry. Then went for a walk along the embankment as we haven’t been out for a while.
Saturday 23 January – Day 23
No home educating today, cloudy sky but the predicted 6 hours of snow didn’t happen. Just chilled and watched a bit of TV. Eldest decided to bake and tried some cheese and onion pies.

Those suncatchers are pretty. Hope the appointments for your dad come through quickly. The confusion over the cream and whether it was on prescription or not sounds frustrating. Hope it helped ease the rash on your mum’s face. That’s a lovely photo of Bee feeding the ducks and swans. It is nice to get out for a walk. Hope the cheese and onion pies tasted as good as they looked. #project365
It seems to have helped a bit thank you! They tasted good but she realised she needed to fill them up a bit more.
Love those sun catches. I think your cat sums up how I feel. I’m glad that both of your parents have had the vaccine now. I’m desperate for mine to have them. They are delayed out here at the moment. I feel like swans are getting very brave at the moment. Our local swans keep coming very close to us #365

Hope your parents get their vaccine soon!
She was brave getting so close to the swans, they scare me ever so slightly. Hope your mum’s face is sorted soon – Cetraben is good for dry skin and eczema, my son swears by
The eldest wouldn’t get close at all!
Those sun catchers are very pretty.
So sorry about your dad’s hearing but it sounds like he’s being well looked after.
Sending love and hugs. So sorry you’ve been feeling meh, I have too over the past week. I think we’ve all had enough.
What a faff with the cream for your mums face. I hope the one she eventually got helps. x

Definitely seems like a lot of us have had enough
It’s a relief when older relations get their jabs isn’t it. My in laws had theirs this week too. Bee’s brave feeding swans – they can be quite nasty.
They were getting a bit too close! The eldest kept her distance
Glad your parents have both had their first jabs. The new way that surgeries are working are such a pain, so much more tooing and froing than is really needed, Hope the cream works for your Mum.#365
Definitely a pain!
The sun catchers look pretty! Sorry to hear about your Dad’s hearing loss and Mum’s eczema. Some eczema medication the GPs suggest/prescribe actually make the skin condition worse, as we found out with both of my kids. At the moment I buy Epaderm, and also Aveeno is not too bad, but for milder cases, not when there’s a bad redness.
Cheese and onion pies sound delicious.
It seems to have eased up but will keep those creams in mind
Sorry to hear about your mums skin, hope the cream worked? Love Bee’s nails. I think everyone is feeling a bit meh at the moment it is like a never-ending groundhog day. Glad you managed to get out in the sun and love the look of the pies.

It seems to have helped thank you!
Yes I think we are all rather fed up now 🙁 Its getting harder and harder with each passing day. I have gone back to eating cake to cheer myself up after almost a full month without treats lol! Glad your parents have had their COVID vaccines, mine have had them too 🙂 Hopefully things will go back to normal soon with everyone having vaccinations.

Glad your parents have had them too!
The sun catchers look like lots of fun. Hope things are going well with your parents after the first dose. Its Pfizer vaccine there right? The cheese and onion pies looks temping!

Yes they had the Pfizer vaccine. Alhamdulillah no side effects so far.
The cheese and onion pies look yummy. So sorry you and your mum has such an issue getting some cream. For me having phone consultations isn’t an issue, however for the elderly and new conditions I can imagine a lot gets missed without face to face consultations
It certainly does get missed!
