Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 287 – Starting Afresh


“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.”


Thank you, Spidey for a thoughtful quote there.

This next week heralds a whole host of ‘new’ beginnings, what with much of the country starting to get back to some semblance of normality, once schools start up again.

It’s been a strange five months, what with the pandemic and lockdown, as we. can pretty much all agree, and one thing that has become obvious, is that schools opening are essential for the rest of the population to begin to get themselves back to work, etc.

So, we will be starting back, excited to see our new children, or our old, hoping to bring some stability to the lives of some children who have lived through a time unlike any other.

But, it won’t be like they remembered, especially for the younger ones, who had only begun their school life mere months before being instructed to stay at home.

And it will be equally different for the older kids, too, with limited mixing with others, and a whole host of catching up for all pupils to do.

But there are apprehensions, too. Parents still worrying about how schools are going to function in a way that is safe for their children. Adults worrying about whether this is safe for them, as well as their family members back home, who they will be mixing with every evening.

Still, we soldier on.

Then I have the big clear out still happening, as well as improvements being made on the house, a build up to another new beginning, hopefully.

I’m tired from a few days in school, as well as hefting boxes around, but it’ll be worth it in the end.

And finally, I’ll be beginning my 46th voyage around the sun on Thursday.

Yes, I will be turning 45! Eeeek! What can I do to celebrate, when I will be in school and also taking a child for teeth extractions?

I don’t know, but there is something you wonderful readers could do for me.

The book, Marriage Unarranged, is on sale from now, until Thursday evening, on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.


A bargain!

It would be amazing if you could download your copy, and/or share this offer, so my book baby could get out into the world, even further!

That would be the best birthday present ever, to see my book rankings going up, even for a few days.

Right, now I am off to try and do some more clearing up!

So… tell me, is there anything you are planning on starting over?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week! ❤

    I’ll be thinking of you all week, Ritu. I’m like a deer in headlights at the moment. How about you?

      Thanks Jennie.
      I’ve had the kids in for 2 mornings so far, and yes, it is apparent that they haven’t been anywhere, nursery etc, for the last 6 months. I think we need to take the first term as preschool level.
      Safety wise, that hasn’t been an issue, but the added time washing hands etc eats up a lot of the time, too, especially as they are young and need constant supervision!

    Spidey nailed it. 😉 That my quote for the end of every day, but i hope i never will become the quote for the end of every hour. Lol
    Now, Brexit is done, and the UK is re-opened. It is somewhat unfair, that your birthday always falls in the week of the school start. I am sure it will be funny seeing all the pupils back, to guess who is who behind the mask. But for this evening you should enjoy the silence, Sis! Best wishes, Michael

    It’s going to be an interesting month, Ritu. My boys are going back but on alternate days for the next three weeks. When the senior kids go on examination leave, then my boys are supposed to go back every day. We’ll see how it all pans out.
