When I first started this blog, I put it on the only two social media I had, facebook and twitter, then facebook banned my blog over a year ago and its still not be sorted.
But then I thought, why not go with instagram and pinterest as well. The problem with that is, I don’t really take photographs. However I suddenly had a thought a week ago that at the moment, I and Monkey are taking a shit ton of photos of mainly lego.
Also with the summer holiday now upon us, I like to document what we are doing, its going to be a bit different this year than it was last year and I mean apart from COVID. Monkey is in a school closer to home, so he is able to do summer club this year and my partner works 6 out of 7 days, so we only really have the one day to do things as a family. He has no problem with us going out and about without him, but the big things like going to the beach and to different towns we like to do together, also it means if my anxiety gets the better of me, he is there to help.
This year is going to be doing some planning, we have also taken the decision that our Government is talking out of its arse, is no longer following the science (if it ever was) and wants the economy up and running no matter the sacrifices, so we are going to have to use our own judgement on what we consider safe.
Monkey needs to start getting out and about, we have been sitting in doors to much over the last 4 months, obviously some of them was a forced sit in, but some of it wasn’t.
I have deliberatly made the last 2 days into home days as he starts summer club on Wedneday and he will do that for 2 days a week, but after Thursday we are going to do a trip out at least once a day.
He has lots of plans for what he wants to do, not limited to bowling (closed) indoor play area (also closed) swimming (council knocked our swimming pool down and rebuilding it), going for a walk in the woods (one I can do)
Then some bigger things, like Legoland (not sure) London (also not sure) Beach (not sure) we are going to have to make a judgement call on each of those. Not helped by the idiots protesting in London about not wearing a fucking mask.
You seen those videos of people (I think in the States, but I haven’t verified any of them) getting violent for being kicked out of places for not wearing masks. That is coming to the UK in a few days time when we have to wear a covering in any shop. (Mine have arrived and are awesome, may take a photo)
