Project 365 2019 Week 20 Day 132 – 138
Sunday 12th May – Day 132
It was a lovely sunny day so we headed out on a four and a half mile circular walk. We all really enjoyed it although Daddy P needed a nap when we got home. He’s not used to walking with us yet!
After dinner, I received a phone call which left me totally heartbroken. My best friend’s partner had been killed in a cycling accident earlier in the day. I couldn’t take in what his sister was telling me at all, he’d only taken early retirement last week. Incomprehensible.
A just giving page has been set up by the event organisers in his memory to raise money for the Air Ambulance Service who did all they could to try to save him. If you’d like to donate here is the link.
Monday 13th May – Day 133
A blur of a day. I couldn’t sleep and ended up having toast and a cuppa in the early hours. I couldn’t stop thinking about my bestie and what she now has to face. Her partner’s family are staying with her and I’ll be there for her as and when she’s ready.
I took my son to school and then walked to work. There were tears but I really needed to keep busy.
Today’s positive was the weather.
Tuesday 14th May – Day 134
I did get some sleep last night which was much needed. My son’s best friend’s Mum is lovely, she bought me some flowers around when she dropped her son off and has offered to have my boy for a sleepover as and when I go up to see my bestie. An offer I’ll definitely be taking her up on as and when my friend is ready for it.
A busy morning at work was much appreciated before I caught up with some things at home.
Wednesday 15th May – Day 135
I’m so thankful to have my son right now. He is the light in amongst all the heartache and stress, and I’d be lost without him.
He decided to colour in a cat picture to look like Paddington. It made us both laugh.
Daddy P has been using my car most days but he took his car (AKA the Tank) today so I could use my car after work to get some shopping.
We registered Paddington at the vets and booked his vaccination appointment for half term week. Not long until he comes home to us!
Thursday 16th May – Day 136
I did tell you last week that my living room is a train track, didn’t I! The track goes around three-quarters of the room. A bit of pre-breakfast play time.
The weather has been beautiful all week, I hope it lasts.
I had a catch up on Facetime with my youngest niece, before getting on with some blog work. My brain isn’t working very well so I haven’t got much done.
We went to see Paddington after dinner, he’s 10 weeks old today and growing so fast. Can’t believe that he’ll be home with us in a week.
Friday 17th May – Day 137
The sun has disappeared but thankfully I managed to get to work and back in the dry.
The Just Giving page in memory of my bestie’s partner reached £21.k today! It’s amazing, I’ve read through a lot of the donation comments over the last few days, it’s humbling to see so many people who didn’t know him, donate. It breaks my heart that he’ll never see this but it’s nice to see that there is something positive to look at.
Saturday 18th May – Day 138
The duvet thief arrived at some point in the night, but I’ve no idea when, so I must have had some decent sleep.
It’s been a chilled out morning, with lots of Lego building and me doing some work to help Daddy P.
This afternoon I’m getting away from it all and spending it with NCT friends, making use of a free spa pass and just relaxing. I can’t tell you how much this is needed right now.
