WHATS HAPPENING TO OUR WORLD WEEK 17
AT HOME IN ISOLATION DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS
DAY 112 – MONNDAY 13TH JULY
As most lockdown restrictions are being lifted, this is going to be my last week of writing my lockdown diary. I’m so glad I started it & I’ll definitely be looking back on it all this time next year.
This week is going to be a busy one with all the plans for re opening my studios. We’ve got lots to do to make them safe for everyone’s return plus I have Risk Assessments, new timetables, information letters for parents to do etc etc
I’ve had a productive day today sorting all my times out for the first week back and my information letter & Risk Assessment done.
I had another workshop organised for my students this evening which will be there last one online & was excellent. I feel proud that I’ve provided my students with so much whilst we’ve been operating online.
DAY 113 – TUESDAY 14TH JULY
A bit of lovely normality today meeting a close friend at my favourite local restaurant Harvey’s. I go often as it’s close to where we live and a fantastic restaurant. We’ve supported them during lockdown as they did a fantastic takeaway service and I’m so glad they’ve stayed so busy and have re-opened with a boom!!
Another Tuesday afternoon of class planning for this weeks classes and then ‘Downton Abbey’ for Isabelle & I.
DAYS 114 & 115 – WEDNESDAY 15TH & THURSDAY 16TH JULY
My second to last week teaching on Zoom done!!!! Whoop whoop!!!!
DAY 116 – FRIDAY 17TH JULY
I’m still doing ok on Slimming World, I lost quite a bit in the first 2 weeks then I’ve had a bit of a plateau the last week or so but that’s where I’ve given up in the past which I’m nit doing this time. I’m on an absolute mission. I told myself I’d have a big clothes shop when I’d got down to where I wanted but I have treat myself and ordered a few dresses this week.
Today was shopping for my mums birthday gifts today for her birthday on Monday then taking Max for his first proper haircut!!!
Tony’s spent the day at my studios putting hand sanitising dispensers & soap dispensers up etc.
I said all that about Slimming World and then tonight I’m having a meal out at Harveys with my business partner! Luckily, they have good food options that I can keep my syns down with, I just need to watch the G&T consumption!!!!!!
DAY 117 – SATURDAY 18TH JULY
A busy weekend spent sorting my studios ready for our return. Tony spent all day there today putting sanitiser dispenses up and sorting lots of things out then we’re both going over in the morning to mark out the floor & put all our posters up for social distancing, hygiene rules etc etc. I’ll also be giving it all a very deep clean & then another one on Friday before we open on Saturday.
A busy week ahead as we plan to return to the studios.
DAY 118 – SUNDAY 19TH JULY
A lovely BBQ at my mum & dads with all the family & the sun was shining all day!
So, as lockdown restrictions continue to be lifted, I will end this diary here. It’s been good to have somewhere to write down my thoughts during this trying and unprecedented time and I will look forward to reading it all back in time.
I do hope people have learnt from this time and we don’t all go straight back to the crazy business of before.
There have been some extremely difficult times but also some wonderful memories made that I for one will cherish forever.
