I can’t quite believe another week has passed and we’re now over half way to the Easter holidays! We’re very much on covid watch here again at the moment as cases in the boys’ school are higher than they’ve ever been. Last week there were 10 cases in Toby’s class alone! I know they boys only had it at Christmas but from what I’ve seen that’s no guarantee they won’t catch it again. All we can do for now is cross our fingers and keep testing…

Toby and Gabe in the big and small room at the Puzzling Place, Keswick

Last week was our half term and after a weekend at Cub and Beaver camp we spent a few days in the Lake District. We were staying in a cottage not far from Keswick, and despite some pretty miserable weather it was lovely to get away and spend some time away from home. I was definitely grateful that I made it through another half term without catching covid and we didn’t have to cancel any of our plans!

Gabe and Toby tired but happy in the car after camp

OK, so this post is so late it’s almost time for next week’s already! One of these days I’ll actually get into a proper routine and start posting them on time again… Anyway, we’ve been away in the Lake District this week but I’m going to save those photos for next week’s post. This week’s were taken when we were on Cub and Beaver camp last weekend.

Toby with wet hair, both thumbs up and pulling a silly face

Here we are again, another week done, and another week of negative lateral flow tests for us! The virus is rife at school at the moment, and even though the boys only had it at Christmas I’m still conscious that they could easily get it again. And even though I avoided it when they had it, I don’t know if I’m going to dodge it again… only time will tell I guess!

Gabe in the bath with his wet hair stuck up at the front

We made it through our first full week back at school. Well, actually only the boys did a full week, I wasn’t in on Wednesday as it was my Dad’s funeral. It was a hard day, but so many people came and it was actually lovely to catch up with loads of people that I’ve not seen for years. I just wish it could have been in happier circumstances!

Toby playing on his tablet at Street Monkeys

Here I am again, even though I only wrote my last post a few days ago, I’m trying to get back on track. With the boys (and me) back at school now, and back into our normal routine, there really isn’t much to say this week. Even though the pandemic still appears to be in full swing, and there are quite a few cases at school I’m pleased that for the moment at least most things are carrying on as normal.
