Project 366 2020 Week 5 Day 26 – 32 – a week of feeling under the weather
Sunday 26th January – Day 26
We had planned to go to Stowe in the afternoon but I was feeling decidedly under the weather and my son really just wanted to spend time at home with his Lego. He made a coal storage facility using Plus Plus as coal – all for his trains of course! You might spot the container crane he built recently too in the background.
I started to sort through the junk mail my Auntie has been receiving over the last six months, one company appears to have been mailing her with unbeatable offers every single week. Hopefully, I can get them all to remove her from their mailing lists. Time will tell.
Monday 27th January – Day 27
My son continues to teach Paddington all he knows about model railways. Love this shot of them together.
Tuesday 28th January – Day 28
A bitterly cold day. Brewster always minimises the amount of time he spends outside at this time of year and Paddington is learning to do the same I think, even though his coat is much thicker. He was happy to sit on top of the armchair most of the afternoon.
No Forest Foragers for my son this week as they had a company come in to perform a panto this afternoon instead. Although he wasn’t happy to miss his outdoors time, apparently the performance was good. High praise from my son!
I had a phone call from my ex MIL in the evening, going through arrangements for her brother’s funeral next week, and to tell me that I’m a beneficiary of his will. This was totally unexpected and I feel very humbled that he still included me after all this time.
Wednesday 29th January – Day 29
Another blue sky day, and as much as I love this kind of day to the grey, wet ones that this time of year normally provide, I can’t stand the cold at all. I need to hibernate.
Thursday 30th January – Day 30
My big fur baby in his standard school hours position, whether the radiator is on or off. As long as Paddington is leaving him in peace, then Brewster will be curled up here all day. Sometimes I forget he’s in at all. Come Springtime I’m sure he’ll spend more time outside, but like me, he doesn’t do cold weather.
My head is spinning with all things care home related, and what needs to be done to get everything sorted for my Auntie. It’s a logistical nightmare when you aren’t on the doorstep to get things sorted. Hopefully, the LPA’s will be approved shortly so we can do things without our hands being tied behind our backs.
Friday 31st January – Day 31
Kind of ironic that my new passport arrived today, on the day we leave the European Union. I’m very much pro-European and am really not optimistic about what the future holds for us as a nation now.
The weather seems to have come out in sympathy – cold, wet and miserable!
Saturday 1st February – Day 32
After feeling rubbish all week I’ve woken up this morning full of cold, what a joy. My immune system seems to be shot to pieces at the moment. The OH has a meeting late morning so my son has headed out into the garden to play in his mud pit and I’m going to sit on the sofa with a good book and a hot cup of tea and enjoy some peace and quiet. Let’s see how long that lasts.
