Week Notes #21: 31 August, 2020
Bank holiday start ... then the madness of the return to school.
I tend to write these looking back from future. I'm struggling to remember what we did on the bank holiday.
- Not much actually. A lazy-ish day. Jobs around the house. I tidied the garage, mowed all the grass. That kind of thing. We did finish with a pleasant sunset stroll around West Kirby.
- Tuesday was back to work and a last day off for my Son.
- He's moving into Year 3. Though with the massive break they're easing them back in with a couple of weeks with their old teacher. The first day was a bit chaotic ... but he loved being back.
- Thursday was our daughter's turn. She's moving to big school. They had a day just for Year 7 to go in and get comfortable. We practically live on the school grounds, and she can walk to the gates in a couple of minutes.
- Of course she had the obligatory photo shoot before she was allowed to leave.
- And my wife walked her there. She's never really had this amount of freedom before.
- She absolutely loved her first day. She was positively bursting with excitement when she got home. She loves everything. So far.
- She did her first bit of homework. Google Classroom is the big hub that drives everything. She could do all of the work on a laptop and hand it in. Eeeee it wasn't like that in my day.
- She had another day off to celebrate.
- Our son did three days and was positively exhausted by Friday.
- He then came down with a cold. We think it's a cold. There's no particular Virus symptoms ... but ... yeah.
- The Wirral is quickly moving up the lockdown charts and we've been sent emails from the council warning special measures.
- We're pretty sure it's just a cold though.
- It does seem ... optimistic ... that schools aren't going to be a huge place for infections.
- No golf again this week. But the round has been booked for next Wednesday at Carden Park's Cheshie Course. I'm looking forward to that.
