COVID DIARY: DAY 10

So Week 2 of self-isolation is well underway and the novelty of being in lockdown is starting to wear. Both kids dropped the dreaded “b” word today; boredom. That’s despite having access to a PS4, three streaming services, two computers, art materials, a box of toys each (though I think they’re too old for toys) […]

Breaking News! Our new printer came today. Being the tech savvy dad that I am, I rolled up my sleeves and prepared to set it up with a fist full of usb printer cables and turned my laptop on. Turns out it didn’t need my laptop on … Nor did it need any usb cables, […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 8

Sun is in the sky, you know how feel. You can’t help but feel good when the sun is out and there are blue skies for miles. Bonus content: Covid doesn’t do so well when it’s hot out. Unfortunately, it’s also difficult to keep people in doors when the sun’s out. People be heading out […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 7

It’s been nearly a full week since we went into isolation. Shock, we haven’t killed each other yet. In fact we’ve all been quite civil with each other. We eat together and we pray together. We occasionally sit down and watch something on the box together. Most of the day the kids are doing their […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 5

I dreamt I had long glossy hair. Waking up to see my bald head in the mirror was slightly traumatic. I saw one of my younger brothers today. I asked him to drop a parcel off to the post office and pick up a few essential groceries from Tesco. I left the parcel in the […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 4

Our Prime Minister has just announced some additional measures. Apparently people haven’t been taking self-isolation seriously. This has forced the PMs hand. There are some really selfish people out there, but at the same time there are many good people too. One of those good people lives in my community and has been putting himself […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 3

I slept in today. I woke up at 10am and vaccumed the house whilst the missus saw to breakfast. Homemade pancakes served with chopped strawberries and a little caramel sauce. After, we watched an episode of Masterchef with cups of coffee in our hands. In the afternoon I used Google Hangouts to teach an A-level […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 2

The inevitable happened today. After a whole day of self-isolating, my wife decided it was time to spring clean the living room. 😟 Breakfast was toast with scrambled eggs. I mixed in some spring onions, half a green pepper and a whole chilli (seeds included). A video call with my big brother and both of […]

COVID DIARY: DAY 1

Education providers have been closed down today for the foreseeable future. I’m a lecturer and my wife works in a primary school, so effectively we are home now for at least next 3 months. Furthermore, three of us in my household are high risk for the virus, meaning we have underlying issues that could become […]
