Chapter 53: A long time

Good actual evening!

It’s been awhile since I last posted… Months in fact. I’ve spent about 8 weeks trying to convince myself to write about anything but there has been zero motivation. Well, I’m here now so let’s see how things go eh?

Since the start of the lockdown here in good old England, I’ve had about 4 weeks off due to COVID-19. My wife and I have had a mixture of the symptoms but thankfully nothing serious. We have both recovered and healthy. My kids haven’t shown any of the symptoms either which I feel extremely lucky for.

I have had another 2 weeks off of work thanks to a tooth abscess but I’m returning back to work tomorrow. It feels like I wasted all of this time off though. There are a bucket load of photos and videos online of families building sheds or wendy houses and all I’ve done is lounge around.

I spent almost every day looking after my kids but I feel that I didn’t spend enough time with them. I didn’t spend enough time writing or streaming or podcasting. I hate my laziness. I’m really going to push harder to spend time with them and be more productive. I guess only time will tell.

Yours dejectedly,

Some Hero Dad
