Chai And A Chat #102 #ChaiAndAChat #CoronaDiaries Week 26

Is it already Monday, again?

Another week, another round of craziness, here! Drinks ready?

  • If we were having chai I’d start with my weekly school update. It was the first week the children were in full time, which was a real chore for some of them. Staying until 3pm meant we heard a few choruses of “Is it hometime, yet?”, but generally they were fine. Aside from some more serious issues I had to deal with as the Phase leader, with regards to some pupils, the week went smoothly, but it felt LONG!
  • If we were having chai I’d mention that as always, teacher duty morphed into taxi service for the kids come the evenings and weekend, with tutoring, and two sessions of cricket training, as well as aa cricket match on Saturday – they won, so it was all good!

Cricket Saturday again! #cricketmum

  • If we were having chai I’d tell you that I was featured on the Great Writers Share podcast last week, which was fun, and a bit of a boost, as I was so tired, and emotionally drained from the week at school and builder stuff…
  • If we were having chai I’d have to update you on the builder situation. It is nearly done, but still at least a week to go. The new downstairs bathroom looks gorgeous, but there are still some niggles that need sorting out. The carpenter has done an epic job with the new bannister and they have begun to lay the flooring, as well as painting the interior. The upstairs bathroom has nearly completed its transformation, too! Outside, the front is more or less done, with a little left on the porch, and the back left to do, so it’s all good!
  • If we were having chai I’d finally tell you that even though I haven’t been able to write, I got a wonderful review from amazing author, Zoe May, on Amazon, and I was buzzing!

This week, it’ll be interesting to see what the Government announces with regards to a possible second lockdown. I have heard of them talking about a possible early half term for schools, lasting two weeks, so everyone is home, with no online learning, as it will be ‘holiday’… one suggestion, anyway. As long as it doesn’t affect our renovations!

Other than that, it will be me trying to get through the week, hoping for the decorating to be done by the end of this week!

    Another busy week, Ritu. Glad the renovations are moving along. Just when you settle into school and go to full day, the bloody virus acts up again! Fingers crossed the government makes some swift decisions.

    The UK does not come to rest. There is still so much confusion about how to handle the virus and now you are close to a second lockdown. I hope it is not necessary, sis! Fingers crossed!

    Congrats on great milestones, Sis! First to LilMan and his won cricket match. Then to your upcoming cab license. Lol For sure – and this was fantastic – on your podcast interview. Made another positive difference, and for school, if they not all will call you mom, all will be good. Lol Good luck for the rest of the building work. Michael

    I just subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂 I heard about the UK from friends and family members. It is sooo scary. Increase in cases in the Netherlands have also gone up. 😦

    Another busy week, Ritu. I am glad your building is going so well. If the UK locks down for a second time, I really don’t know how your economy is going to survive the knock. It is very worrying. In South Africa, my firm view is that our government must now push on with the safety measures that are in place. A second lock down is not an option. Our second wave is going to be starvation and not illness. It is a frightening prospect.
