Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 356 – The Unknown


“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” 

David Bowie

Thanks, Spidey, and a very Happy New Year to you, my arachnid superhero type co-writer!

I really loved this quote, when Spidey found it. It really does encompass what I am feeling, right now.

I’ve been harping on about that ‘thing’, that I have which I can’t confirm or deny yet, though I am itching to do something about, but, until it is set in stone, I don’t want to tempt fate! And I do promise you, like the above, it will be far from boring!

Then, there is school.

Numbers are going up again, but the government doesn’t want to lockdown fully, again, unless it was unavoidable. Schools closing would be the last resort, so they say.

It seems that in the not so distant past, we were sat here, debating what would happen at the beginning of the last new year, too!

I really don’t want schools to go into remote learning, at least, not for my little ones.

Home learning is tough for them, and their parents. It’s not like the older kids who do have the nous to get on with things, themselves. You just have to, as a parent, crack the whip once in a while, to make sure they are doing what they should be doing.

However, today we are reading about the strain on the NHS, again, with so many of those who are the backbone of our health service, isolating or unwell with Covid.

It almost feels inevitable…

But I hope not.

I’ll pray that things settle…

So, how do you think your start to the new year will pan out?


Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

    Tell my friend from Arunachal Pradesh that all will be well! And, that he must not vote for Boris Johnson next time!

    I wish you an easier time teaching the children – educating them to be empowered and positive, especially at a time when so many aren’t – happy new year to you and your family!

    We are stretched to the limit, as so many places require a test and no tests are available. Sold out everywhere. Public schools are requiring all teachers and students get tested at school tomorrow, and the governor is desperately trying to get the testing kits. Tomorrow will not be a pretty day.

    COVID has hit my immediate family. It’s so scary out there. Stay safe.

    I always try to see the positive side of life but I am not at all happy with the start of this year but ….. Already we have had to cancel our February holiday because everything is so uncertain . We were going with four friends to Antigua….
    So many people are ill, everything is almost the same as last year! Let’s paint on a smile and cross our fingers behind our backs 😞💜

    I love this quote, sis! Wonderful inspiration. Step by step. Sometimes we get too much in our way when having too fixated expectations on something we would like to reach. Go with the flow while holding the goal in the heart…

    I have always been a glass half full person, but that is slowly beginning to change, unfortunately. I keep hoping that a miracle will arrive in time to save us all…

      Let me try and refill you! I’ve always been a glass half full kinda gal, and it was my tag line on Facebook, from the moment I joined it!
      Hmm… I wonder if they still show that…

    can’t wait to hear your potential good news, but I’ll have to be patient. ) as for school, I really hope to stay in person, as it’s so hard to reach the kinder online, as you said, but I’m not sure what will need to be done based on how covid breakouts go. in spite of this, I remain hopeful and positive for the new year overall
