#SoCS Feb. 20, 2021 – Nerve

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

It really gets on my nerves, you know, how some people are still spouting about COVID-19 and all it’s global implications being a hoax, or a conspiracy theory. Or, that they have lockdown fatigue, and genuinely don’t care anymore, so are beginning to flout rules.

You guys. You are the ones who might end up pushing us back into more lockdowns, if you can’t understand how this thing works. Yes, it’s a virus, and there are plenty out there, but, like various illnesses, they vary in severity, and this one, well, we all know how awful it is.

Just look at the death rates, and way hopsital ICUs are packed. Or take a look at the long term side effects that some people are suffering from: Long Covid. Previously healthy folk, reduced to shells of themselves.

At least we have this vaccine. It might help a little. We may need one annually, but hey, if it gets us out of this mess, I’m game.

Shame not everyone is.

Jsut last night, Lil Man and I were out for a walk and as we walked through town, a woman passed a man she knew. She called out “You getting your vaccination, then?”

His response? “The f*** I am!” He gave her the middle finger salute and waltzed off.

I actually write a huge amount more, but had to delete it because I was getting too het up.

Seriously, my nerves are frayed, now!

(I’m glad I wrote this last night, because I wouldn’t want to spend Saturday wound up, since it’s Lil Princess’s birthday, today!)

#SoCS June 10/17 – Admit

Linda’s #SoCS Prompt today…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “admit.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

I’m nervous.
I admit it.

In a few short hours, I will be among a whole host of Bloggers, and many of them are people I respect hugely!

The ABBA’s, or the third Annual Blogger’s Bash Awards 2017, is upon us finally, and not only am I looking forward to meeting them all, but we find out the results of the Awards that many of you voted for.

I have been harping on about it for ages, and I am seriously so excited, but the nerves that accompany the whole award thing, and having to wait, (im)patiently, for all the results will be one of the hardest things for me!

It doesn’t help that the category I am nominated in will be announced LAST!

So there you have it.

I am nervous.
I admit it.

Bag of Nerves – Update 1


The day has come….

We find out where Lil Man has his place at school. Amd I am literally a nervous wreck, waiting to open that email…

I just couldn’t bear it if he doesn’t get his first choice!

Three has been such upheaval at school with this whole new curriculum as it is, and he has taken a battering, mentally, and emotionally. At the moment he just feels like he isn’t good enough for anything.

Which mother wants to see their child going through that? I wish I could give him his first choice of school on a plate, and serve him the good news that no matter what those SATS tests say, he will be going where he really wanted to. But I am at a loss, as I can’t influence that decision at all. 

I’ll be on tenterhooks until 4pm, which is when the emails will be rolled out. Then I will be obsessively looking at the email app on my phone, until that fated message arrives.

I am trying so hard to be positive, but I can’t help but worry about the flip side. I can be positive, and  think positive about everything with regards to me, but he is going through his own changes at the moment, amd every thing is an issue for him. I can’t help but worry that if he doesn’t get his first choice of school it will send him into a downwards spiral of depression, almost. I have had him in tears over the last few weeks, over seemingly silly little things… But they are things that mean a lot to him.

He’s a precious, unique bundle of joy, and we tell him that all the time. I just hope he remembers that.

So please, spare a thought for my Lil Man, and many other children out there, waiting to hear about their school places today. A nerve wracking time for both the child, amd their parents.

I hope I can report back with something positive this evening…

I’m sorry… Just listening to the news…

“Kent had 600 more secondary applications this year the LEA has cut the number of places by a third.”

Ok, if I wasn’t nervous enough already, that has just got to be the icing on the cake!
