So having thought we’d have another two weeks of school until the Easter break it sort of starts today. Once Jaxon finishes school today, that will be it for the time being and come Monday, homeschool starts. I think Jaxon is sort of excited about it as it’s different from his normal every day life but also I think he’s a bit worried about it all.
This morning, our friend Tom (who runs Tom’s Garden Services) came to fix our garden fence – he’d been booked in for weeks so we figured that as long as we had minimal contact it should be okay for him to go through to the garden and do what he needed to get done. Then when I went out to check the work he’d done, I’d just stand at a distance. With Jaxon and the little boy next door both being off school from Monday, I’m glad we were able to get the fence fixed so that they don’t try to play together when they should be separated.
I saved this from Instagram – let’s hope the world is a better place when we come out of this craziness.
History will remember when the world stoppedDonna Ashworth
And the flights stayed on the ground.
And the cars parked in the street.
And the trains didn’t run.
History will remember when the schools closed
And the children stayed indoors
And the medical staff walked towards the fire
And they didn’t run.
History will remember when the people sang
On their balconies, in isolation
But so very much together
In courage and song.
History will remember when the people fought
For their old and their weak
Protected the vulnerable
By doing nothing at all.
History will remember when the virus left
And the houses opened
And the people came out
And hugged and kissed
And started again
Kinder than before.
I had some happy mail from Mrs Brimbles arrive. In these uncertain times, I love to be able to support businesses when and where I can. Especially those where they are super reliant on the income from their business to pay the bills.
Homeschooling begins on Monday and I’m a little nervous. I always hoped I’d be like Miss Honey if I was ever a teacher but why do I have the feeling I’ll come out more like Miss Trunchbull come Monday… I guess we’ll see how it goes. Let’s do this thing…
