Project 365 2019 Week 32 Day 216 – 222
Sunday 4th August – Day 216
We had a quiet morning after a busy day yesterday. After lunch, I headed over to see my brother and his family. My SIL’s Dad passed away suddenly on Thursday and everyone is still in shock.
While I was there my OH set to work in our garden. Our garden backs onto the main road which is sheltered by some trees on the other side of our boundary fence. The trees are lovely for the birds but nearly 30 years after the estate was built the trees are just too big. We’ve had tree roots coming up across our garden and the OH dug them out from the surface of our lawn. They’d reached our patio so I’ve emailed pictures to the council as the trees are on their land, not ours. They’ll need to do something I think.
Monday 5th August – Day 217
We had work in the morning and decided to enjoy a chilled out afternoon. My son got some Brewster cuddles before we headed out into the garden with Paddington on his lead. I signed for some post for my OH which just took the wind out of my sails. Every time I think we’re finally turning a corner, something else comes along to knock us over. Throw in the fact I’ve missed my second period of the year and am feeling really rather rubbish, and the rest of the day was a write-off.
Tuesday 6th August – Day 218
I’m not feeling great, overwhelmed with all the ‘stuff’ and hormonal as hell. I had my hair cut in the morning, my son approved.
The weather seems to match my mood as the heavens opened for the afternoon.
Wednesday 7th August – Day 219
This little monkey is five months old today, it’s also my brother’s birthday.
We had work in the morning, which was manic and after lunch, my brother and his family and their dog popped over. Paddington did not enjoy his first encounter with a dog since moving in with us!
Thursday 8th August – Day 220
I needed to get out of the house, the sun was shining, so we headed over to Stowe for a couple of hours. I was messing around with shutter speeds and managed to catch this branch mid drop.
After lunch, I had a really long catch up on the phone with my bestie which did us both good. Then an email arrived for my OH which needed actioning so off to the post office we went to make sure something arrives in time. I’m so fed up with all the stress in our lives right now.
Friday 9th August – Day 221
Work in the morning and a mega hot flush day. Could quite easily have gone to work in my bra and pants this morning, but I’m not sure that would have gone down well with anyone! Oh, the joys of hitting ‘that age’, We were meant to be heading over to Ascott House and Gardens for the first time. We’d been invited to their outdoor performance of Gangsta Granny but it had been cancelled due to the weather forecast. We can’t make any of the alternative dates for the performances unfortunately but will be visiting the house and grounds with Daddy P one weekend in September.
Someone was glad to have his partner in crime home for the afternoon.
Saturday 10th August – Day 222
It’s been howling a gale all night and day so we decided to have a chilled out day at home. It’s involved some documentary film watching and lots of Lego building.
