A letter that made me proud!
Woke up late today! I think the recent late nights are catching up, but it's the last working day of the week for me and i'm ready for the weekend!
We went for a walk as a family (just the three of us) to take advantage and not to waste our 30 minutes! It still feels strange, it’s like anything else, when someone says you can’t do something you want to do it more than you’ve ever wanted to do it in the past.
I was working upstairs and Sarah spent the day trying to occupy Oliver. We’ve been really lucky with the weather and he’s spent the whole day playing outside - so much so that he nodded off before tea and we’re now in for a very late night. I checked the weather for the weekend which isn’t great, we’ll have to find things to do inside.
Whilst working upstairs Sarah shouted ‘house of commons... the House of Commons... why would you get a letter from there?’ I was both shocked and amazed that a letter had winged its way to me from our MP, Andrea Jenkyns. It was a proud moment actually and I’ll treasure the letter. It’s not just me though, There are many people all volunteering their time, their services and their support, I guess I’m just pulling it all together and people are listening to me, which isn’t a common occurrence. There’s still a long way to go in this fight, people may not need help right now but they may do in the coming weeks and months and when that call comes we will be ready. People have been really kind to me today and saying very nice things, thank you- I do try, we are all in this together and together we’re stronger.
The news also came out that Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock had tested positive for the virus with chief medical officer also displaying symptoms. Again, another realisation moment that this is real and that it doesn’t discriminate.
Anyway, it’s getting late and I’m shattered, tomorrow’s another day. Wonder if Oliver will let us have a lie in....
Laters, stay safe!
