Project 366 2016 Week 31 Day 213-219. An up and down sort of week really and it’s August!!!
Sunday 31st July – Day 213
We went out for a review lunch at The Longwall in Oxford and then came home, Monkey was on a mission. While Monkey and I had been in Spain, Daddy P had set up two train layout tables in the garage. I lost them for the afternoon!
Monday 1st August – Day 214
Scissorgate. My hairdresser had a baby last week so it was time to find someone else to cut Monkey’s hair. Cue nightmare. He hates change, and it took over an hour of going round every single hairdresser/barbers in town before I could convince him to finally sit and have his hair cut at the first one we went into. Of course at the end of it he told me how much he loved it, grits teeth!
In other news, my nephew reacted to his IV antibiotics again and the infection was spreading so he was transferred to the central hospital in Oxford. There is now talk of an operation.
Tuesday 2nd August – Day 215
Daddy P has suspected Sleep Apnea, which is almost funny, considering the minimal amount of sleep he actually gets compared to a normal human being. But anyway, he went off to the specialist clinic for his first consultation. With that and my nephew I wanted to be close to home. Monkey was fine with that, as we had a few deliveries first thing. The face says it all.
Operation tomorrow for my nephew and Daddy P has some attractive kit to wear the next time he has a full nights sleep – Saturday!
Wednesday 3rd August – Day 216
My nephew was in theatre early this morning. Monkey and I headed to see my ex-MIL for the day whilst we waited for more news. The sun came out and Monkey had great fun in the park. My nephews op went well too.
Thursday 4th August – Day 217
Monkey and I went to visit my nephew. Trying to get to the hospital in Oxford is a nightmare at the best of times and parking is even worse. To avoid any stress we opted for the bus instead. Monkey loved it as the journey there and back meant 4 buses – heaven. My nephew is doing well which was great to see and hear. My youngest niece caught the bus back with us and introduced Monkey to their puppy. It wasn’t love at first sight!
Friday 5th August – Day 218
Nephew is home, with daily visits to the local hospital for IV antibiotics. Happy days. The sun came out and Monkey and I headed over to Waddesdon Manor for some fun outdoors. Of course, sticks are always involved in any adventure, it’s not the best focussed shot, but I love his expression. Boy on a mission.
Saturday 6th August – Day 219
We’re off to Aylesbury to see Aliens Love Underpants. I bought the tickets ages ago, hard to believe the day has arrived. We need to explore the town more really as the theatre backs onto the canal from the looks of it. I found the production a bit lacklustre but Monkey thought it was ok.
Now ranting over parking. We live in a cul-de-sac, we can only fit one car (Daddy P’s on our driveway). For 8 years it’s never been a problem, I’ve been able to park on the road outside our house. People over the road have off-road parking for 3-4 cars but have decided to park their huge white transit outside our house. So fed up with them being so inconsiderate. Maybe Daddy P will have to start asking them to move their van at 3am, or maybe I should start parking on the space that’s still left on their driveway. There is nowhere for Daddy P to park when he gets home, he can’t even block me in on the driveway because white van man has taken up so much space he’d also block our next door neighbour in too.
