131 Days Later (part 14)

On Thursday we received a letter from the Department of Health & Social Care advising us that we would be required to shield until 31st July. What started off as 12 weeks in lockdown will in the end turn out be almost 19 weeks. I’d like to know why the general public can go and […]

100 Days Later (part 13)

An ode to the Dad joke! As it’s Father’s Day today I thought I’d post a few Dad jokes. I’ve not had much time to sit down and write a post as the kids want my attention as it’s been my birthday week and Father’s Day (something Louise constantly reminds me of every year, sometimes […]

100 Days Later (part 12)

This coming Wednesday I’ll be 45 (Forty five) years old. I’ve spelt it out as they used to do that on the vidiprinter on Grandstand when a team scored a high amount of goals against the other team! I think it’s official confirmation that I’m middle aged, well that’s if I’m lucky enough to live […]

100 Days Later (part 11)

Hello! I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable week. I’ve decided this week to lighten the mood a little in regards to my isolation blog. As the weather has taken a turn for the worse, I thought as I’d have a bit more thinking time! As I mentioned in my last blog, I’ve been partaking […]

100 Days Later (part 10)

You may notice that the blog title has changed! 84 Days Later has now become 100 Days Later due to the Government extending shielding until 30th June. A lot of mixed messages again from Boris and co this past week and I feel a lot of the announcements have been to deflect the attention from […]

84 Days Later (part 9)

A bit late to the party this week, almost as late as Dominic Cummings appearing at a press conference! The sheer arrogance of that man is just unbelievable! Only a short one this week as I’ve not really been ‘in the zone’. So what have we learned this week aside from one rule for one […]

84 Days Later (part 8)

Untied Kingdom You may think that I have made an uncharacteristic typo in my heading but I can assure I have not. I personally believe that we are no longer a United Kingdom in our stance on Coronavirus. Boris Johnson and his Government have loosened England’s laces away from Scotland, Ireland and Wales in how […]

84 Days Later (part 7)

Defying the odds? On 7th May 2016, Leicester City played their final home game of the season against Everton. After that game they received the English Premier League trophy in a season which they defied almost uncertain odds. In the stadium that day there were 32,140 people. Picture in your head the football stadium pictured […]

84 Days Later (part 6)

Breakfast of Champions It’s Sunday morning, the one day I try to keep as routined as possible to allow myself time to blog my thoughts and clear my head for the new week ahead. A nice breakfast to set me up consists of grapes, sliced peaches and yoghurt topped with granola. Washed down with a […]

84 Days Later (part 5)

Well what a week that was! If you’d have said to me at the beginning of 2020 that by mid-March we’d in full Coronavirus lockdown and unable to go past the front gate I’d have brushed it off. If someone then said four weeks into that lockdown you and your family would be on Granada […]
