Day 8 – isolation

Another day in isolation. I am kind of getting used to not going out. Sure, eventually I will need to do a major shop and not just rely on small supply drops from family and friends, but at the moment I am pretty content in my mini bubble.

The sun was shining again today, and we spent some much needed time outside in the sun, whilst the boys had a kick around. We have had a day of learning too. Speed words, times tables (which Oliver is very good at) and reading, followed by a question and answer session.

I haven’t been as strict about school work today as I have other days because I am conscious of how much the boys lives have been disrupted. Oliver has had a few days when he has been ready about dying…and I am under no illusion that it’s all of this stuff going on around us that has helped fuel his fears. At 5 years old, he shouldn’t have to worry about catching a virus and going into hospital. As a family, we try to shield them both from the trauma that this illness is causing but we can’t hide them away from all of it. They are aware that things are different – they know that we don’t go outside at the moment, or that there favourite places to visit are inaccessible – so keeping them relaxed and not stressing them out too much is a priority. I do want to keep a routine that is as normal as possible, especially when it comes to schooling but I don’t want to put any added pressure on them.

They finished there day with computer games, and a movie before bed. We are currently reading David Williams Grandpa’s Great Escape and we read a chapter or two each night before they get tucked up for the night. I love cuddling up with them on my bed, under the covers as I read a chapter to them. They are always engrossed and I love how they love books and stories just as much as I do! 🙂

Today has been pretty chilled. I still have a cough and my breathlessness is still there but I can get around better without feeling like I am gasping for breathe or feeling like I am going to pass out. The stuffiness is still there but better than it was – I am hoping that by the end of my 2 week lockdown (31st March) then I can at least venture out to the shop for 10 minutes on my own.

Here’s to the next 6 days!
