Little helper


Tuesday 23rd to Wednesday 31st March

23rd March 2020 –

A year ago since the first lockdown 😱

I have had 132 days off of work in that year due to Covid (I work part-time).

Back to 2021 –

29th March – we are allowed to meet outside in groups of up to 6 people, outdoor sports are allowed along with some other restrictions lifting and 31st March – shielding ends 😱

At least we now have the vaccines to try and help us out of this pandemic.


Things seem to have come full circle.

First daughter in first lockdown, last daughter in last lockdown (well, maybe πŸ€”)

And at the end of March 2020 I had just bought myself a pressure washer and was going to start doing my garden. I’m just starting to do it all over again now, minus the fish tank!

I had a little helper this time 🐌



Monday 15th to Monday 22nd March

17th March 2020 –

My first day of not working due to Covid.

My first walk, of goodness knows how many πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ

And from my post on that day – “And just to let you know how my very first day is going so far, I made myself a nice mug of tea earlier, sat down to drink it and it was stone cold. It seems I hadn’t even boiled the kettle first!”

Back to 2021 –

I don’t take sugar in my coffee, but this is just cool, I’d love to try it β˜•οΈ

And so to continue with the ‘drinks’ theme!

We had a little trip out to a local farm to try out their fresh milkshake. It’s very popular right now, there was a bit of a queue! It was freezing and my poor old back doesn’t like standing still πŸ˜–

But there was a lovely sky to look at.

When it was eventually our turn, I chose Rolo flavour. (It actually reminds me of Baileys Irish Cream).

Here I am at the milk vending machine. Sorry for the hooded photo, but I was frozen πŸ₯Ά

Something tells me that we’ll be going back for more πŸ˜‹
