LIFE UPDATE 4

COVID-15: Lockdown week 1

As (most) of the nation go into isolation, each day I will be adding to this post the antics and activities that each day I have amused myself by doing! Then I will write a summary post at the end of each week (will be on my Instagram also – @katiefant_blog)

Hopefully this will give you some inspiration whilst I prepare and send group projects and activities to join in with if you’d like!

Stay indoors as much as possible for your sake, but also for the safety of others too.

Starting the week out ‘making the most of it’, we went out to stock up on 1) food, and 2) amusements. The supermarkets were more bare than I’ve ever seen them before, but luckily I stocked up on arts & crafts materials (wool, beads, paints, books etc.) in case the situation got worse and, like the other European countries (and as we followed!).

Before the lockdown I was spending time with my nephew; painting with a 2 year old is more fun than you realise! Harry was so pleased with himself and his little bunny 🐰

I’ve been redecorating my room, with photos, wardrobe handles, and personal touches such as bunting to match my bed covers..just to make it a bit more ‘homely’ and to spend some time with my carers painting and doing other decorations and crafts.

Ive been preparing for the Easter competition (which will be released on the 1st April) and again has been fun to do with my carers during the day.

In the midst of the lockdown, my Hickman Line blew late one afternoon, and it was a manic rush and massive panic to get it replaced that evening, and I cannot fault the hospital. Within an hour or two I’d been in theatre and was on my way home again (which is usually unheard of!), and they treated my increased susceptibility with the utmost seriousness.

I crocheted my first ever bag this week, and although it’s FAR from perfect, I’m quite proud of it, even if I do say so myself!

Revision and online uni exams have taken precedent this week, however, because despite everything else, I’m still as determined as ever to get my degree!

Going outside, even when I don’t want to, is keeping me sane, healthy, and topped up with the vitamin D that no one can get enough of at the moment. I’m so grateful that we have a garden, as it makes each day a little more bearable!

Please read my most recent post- ‘Virtual Visitors’, and get involved in anyway you can!

Thank you for reading!
