Another cold start. Press ups on the grass are definitely cold on the hands.

Now set into the daily school at home routine. That’s a better way to describe it. It’s not true homeschoolingits schools version of remote learning.

  • 6:30am – start daily exercise (weights, or army fitness, or exercise bike or running round the little garden)
  • 7:30am – try to get as many home cleaning tasks done
  • 8:00am – Son gets up and has breakfast
  • 8:30am – log onto school system and check school messages
  • 8:40am – register for first lesson and complete tasks
  • 9:55am – load completed tasks
  • 10:15am – register for second lesson and complete tasks
  • 11:25am – load completed tasks
  • 11:35am – register for third lesson and complete tasks
  • 12:45pm – load completed tasks
  • 12:50pm – take dog for one walk of the day
  • 1:00pm – outside for talk with son
  • 1:40pm – serve lunch
  • 1:55pm – register for final lesson and complete tasks
  • 3:10pm – load completed tasks and log off
  • 3.20pm – start to breathe and play football

Dad I’m thinking about going Lennon and Yoko tomorrow. Might stay in bed and do the complete school day from there.”

“What are you protesting about then?”

I’m working on that. Maybe the excessive use of red pen at school. Maybe the shortages of baked beans.”

Maybe I can ask one of the important people making daily contact with me. I’ve never had so many Chief Executives and Business Leaders speaking to me. It’s a daily stream of emails wishing me well and informing me of their evolving plans. Our most senior doctors and scientist are giving me helpful advice. Even the PM and the Government are sending me text messages.

It’s suddenly great to be valued and important. I wonder how long this will last. Will it last as long as Son’s bed protest.

  1. I guess I can start calling my depressive bed Fort Blankie days ‘protests’ and figure out what I am protesting later. Kids are fabulous, aren’t they?

    Good luck to you both with the protest and being so in demand. 🙂

  2. He does know they did their ‘bed in’ completely naked right?😂😂

    This is awful, but I’m thankful the virus has ended the gazillions of calls & texts I got daily from one political campaign or the other. My only rings from people I know. Its awesome!

  3. That schedule soundsmore like prison than school. Is this schedule for 5 days a week. A bed-in is right on target. Protest forced staring at a computer screen for hours a day. He won’t have good eyesight for long.

  4. How old is your son?
    That seems like a very strict (and boring!) routine. Mine have just been set work to do and I don’t think it even has to be submitted. The eldest has GCSE’s next year and I thought they’d be wanting to see more work and check it was getting done but it seems not.
    At least you have 2 days unshackled from ‘home school’ xx

      1. I’m going to try very hard not to work. I’m thinking I might pull out a few board games and get the boys away from their screens for a while. Definitely a run. I might try Joe Wicks too.
        Back in the hospital on Monday
        How about you? X

  5. Man, I love your kid’s mind!!

    That school schedule seems like a lot. I can’t imagine how any working-from-home families are managing!!

    I saw that Boris is infected. Can you get him to fly over to infect dotard?

  6. Yes, such a blessing. Thank you so much for the hugs. Oh and I like that he knew of Lennon and Yoko. My mom loved Lennon so growing up she played a lot of his music and with Yoko she you had to get use to. One of my favorite songs is Imagine. I have it on my playlist.

  7. Looks like your local school got things up and running after a fashion.
    Here in Ontario (Canada) the public school kids are having home / schooling without the school portion.
    Not sure how the parents are thinking about it.
    Our prime minister has been quarantined and house bound for 2 weeks since his wife tested positive. Been increasing the measures every day with an 11:00 address to the nation for almost 10 days running.
