Project 366 2020 Week 4 Day 19 – 25
Sunday 19th January – Day 19
The sun shone and we headed to Wiltshire for the day to visit Stourhead for the first time. We fell in love with the place, and all wished we lived nearer. Got another stamp for my son’s NT passport. We also popped to see King Alfred’s Tower and although it wasn’t open to go inside, it was still very impressive. We took a faster route home and got to see Stonehenge from the road as the sun was setting. Magical.
Monday 20th January – Day 20
Another blue sky day, but blimey it’s so cold. Had to de-ice the car and then the heating wasn’t working properly at work so I sat in my coat for most of the morning.
Had a quick catch up with friends before heading home to get on with the second job. Noticed that one of my long-dormant orchids is coming alive again.
Tuesday 21st January – Day 21
Another cold day so I was quite glad that I could work from home all day whilst my son was at school.
Paddington was on lookout duty first thing.
My son had Forest Foragers in the afternoon and I knew they were going to a local wood. Thankfully he did wear his waterproof trousers this week. He’d clearly had a lot of fun judging by the amount of mud on his boots. Think I might have to invest in a cheaper pair just for this school session, I don’t really want his good walking boots to be totally wrecked.
Wednesday 22nd January – Day 22
Yes this is what my living room looks like every day. Yes I’m probably mad but I’d much rather have this than a son who is holed up in his bedroom playing computer games. Paddington was enjoying looking at the trains going by.
Thursday 23rd January – Day 23
My son walked to school with his bestie so I could leave for London on time with my second boss. It was the monthly board meeting in their office which is next door to my favourite London landmark. It was lovely to put faces to names and learn a bit more about the business.
The train was packed on the way down so it was standing room only, but thankfully we got seats on the way home. My son had a play date with his bestie so he’d had lots of fun while I’d been away.
Friday 24th January – Day 24
My car was back in the garage, the only time I get to use it these days is when it needs taking in for work! Not good news, it’s going to need a new clutch at some point soon.
Paddington seems to have had a massive growth spurt recently, he’s one big boy and still has some growing to do.
Saturday 25th January – Day 25
We headed down to Kent as my Auntie was moved to a care home on Monday. It was very foggy as we got closer to her flat. I needed to pick up some things from there before we spent some time with her in the home. She was on really good form and we had a very constructive few hours talking about what needs to happen next.
A long day but I feel positive for her future now and that she’s happy to finally accept help.
