Day Sixty-Nine in Lockdown #3.0

04:31 Lindsay wakes up from a nightmare. She’s lost one of her students by letting him got to the ice cream van in her lesson. She’s most distressed. Not that she lost a pupil. But how she couldn’t be bothered looking for the kid.

07:32 Doing nothing on Mother’s Day has resulted in a messy house. She leaves it for Ian to sort. It’s almost worth going to work for. Just almost.

07:56 Contact lenses aren’t going well. Her right eye isn’t happy. Lindsay will spend the day, walking round like a pirate. Shame she can’t be swigging on rum at the same time.

09:01 Maths is not going well either.

“Are you stressed Miss?”

“No.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yes!”

“Your Apple Watch says differently Miss. You need to get your heart rate back down.”

11:04 Lindsay’s squinting a lot.

“Miss, what’s the matter?”

“I’m struggling with my contacts.”

“Miss, why don’t you just switch your phone off and on?”

“What?”

“If my contacts are playing up, I knock my phone off.”

“Not the contacts in my phone. The ones in my eyes!”

14:36 Six minutes into the lesson and Lindsay has lost five pupils. How freaky. Lindsay tries to remember what else she dreamt about.

14:37 A teacher fetches her lost students back.

“I found these lot wandering Miss.”

“Thanks. Just out of curiosity, is there an ice cream van outside?”

16:07 Lindsay picks up her kids.

“Think I’ve finally got the hang of these contacts.”

“Hardly.”

“Why?”

“You drove straight past us.”

16:32 Abigail doesn’t trust her mother.

“When’s dancing?”

“Half five. You’ve plenty of time.”

“Yeah. And you’ve plenty of time to forget.”

“I won’t! I’ll remember!”

16:52 Abigail is moaning about her day.

“We had a lesson in PD on how much sleep we need.”

“And what did they recommend?”

“I don’t know. I fell asleep.”

17:32 “Maaaaammmmmmm!”
