Life & blog update: March 2022 was another difficult month. I really need a stress free April.
So, March started off well. My son joined a kid’s football club. He enjoys his football practice and seems to take the coach and training very seriously. He has football practice three times per week which is a lot in my opinion. I had a meeting with my daughter’s daycare teachers and I was very pleased to hear all the nice things they had to say about her. I am glad she’s thriving in her group. She’ll join her brother in September in the older group.
March was very wintery in the beginning. So much so, that we spent a day at a local ski resort again. Kids loved sledding like last time and we saw a snowboard competition too. To add to the winter’s theme my kids built a gingerbread house. Of course, dad was the main builder but they loved adding candies and sweets to the gingerbread house. I only made the icing sugar to glue it all together since we got the house in pieces.
We had a couple of board game nights and walks by the sea and then everything changed in the middle of the month. After two years of somehow dodging covid-19 bullet we succumbed to it. My husband got sick first and then after 5 days I got sick too. Our daughter tested positive as well while our son remained negative on several tests. It was awful. To add insult to the injury we now cannot go to Malta. I booked the flights a couple of days before we got sick and now we can’t go because our covid certificate expires in April and the Maltese authorities don’t accept double vaccination plus recovery certificate. We’d need a booster which now we can’t get before the trip. I am going back to work tomorrow but I feel so exhausted.
We went for a walk by the sea (the photo above) after our isolation finished and saw that spring has finally appeared. It was 20 °C but after some sunshine and a bit of walking I felt like I ‘d ran a marathon. Post covid recovery is going to be a very long recovery, it seems.
