Chapter 54: Late Blogtober!

It’s been a while so I figured, hey it’s Blogtober so why not start posting again?

I don’t really remember too much of what I talked about over the last few posts so I’m just going to do a massive update.

So, I finally managed to finish my 40 hours of teacher training for becoming a driving instructor. I’m now at the point of looking for a car and insurance and then I can start teaching which in excited and nervous about.

My son turned 1 and has developed one hell of a cheeky attitude. He loves to steal our seats if we get up, rushing over, laughing and climbing up until he’s sitting where we sat. He also has a thing for butting my wife/his mum? He very rarely bites anyone else, just her.

My daughter is back at school through all this current madness but, she is being safe and careful. Every day I get home she shows me a book slowly filling up with stickers she has earned at school. It’s adorable.

My wife’s fibromyalgia has gotten worse but, the stress at the moment is high for us all. Usually, as soon as I get home, I take the kids so she can rest and work on her crafting business.

That’s the update for now!

Until next time!

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

Chapter 30: Still sick

We are all still sick sadly. My wife bought a humidifier which I honestly didn’t know existed, I thought there were only dehumidifiers. Apparently, they help sore and dry throats, so let’s see how it goes.

My daughter is making small improvements, her voice has lost the deep screeching sound but it’s been replaced with a full sound. Sadly things aren’t great for my wife, her fibromyalgia is really messing with her legs. Along with the cold, well she’s seen better days.

This is a short post as it’s kinda late and I know I needed to at least post something. I think I’m going to talk about some anime in the next one, I really want to talk about the new Sword Art Online season.

Until next time!
