Project 366 2020 Week 5 Day 26 – 32 – a week of feeling under the weather

Sunday 26th January – Day 26

Lego creations

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

Project 366 2020 Week 5

My son continues to teach Paddington all he knows about model railways.  Love this shot of them together.

Tuesday 28th January – Day 28

Paddington kitten

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

Project 366 2020 Week 5

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

Project 366 2020 Week 5

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

Project 366 2020 Week 5

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

Project 366 2020 Week 5

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.

  1. Sorry to hear you’ve been feeling rough all week. It must be so stressful having all of that stuff to sort out for your auntie. How lovely that your ex-MIL’s brother has remembered you in his will. That is a lovely photo of your son with Paddington.

  2. The Lego set up looks fantastic.
    I hope you can get the junk mail for your Aunt sorted. Ugh.
    Paddington really does look like he’s reading the magazine with your son. Fab photo!
    I am not a fan of the cold either and could quite happily hibernate.
    Oh no, I hope you feel better soon x

  3. Ahhh sitting down with a book and a drink and some peace and quiet sounds absolute bliss – hopefully it lasted ! Lovely photos of Paddington and I’m very impressed by the Lego creation. 🙂

  4. Very sad not to have passports with the EU on them any more. Glad to hear Paddington is learning all about trains!

  5. I love your son’s Lego coal storage facility for his trains. That’s a gorgeous photo of him with Paddington. Brewster’s standard school hours position looks like a good one – I wish I could do the same especially in this cold weather! Colds are horrible things, hope you feel better soon. #project366

  6. love the red trousers to match the red jacket.
    I much prefer the cold and dry to to much heat in the Summer.
    Love Paddington reading the magazine.

  7. Lego coal facility is super, I was wondering what those crosses were. Hope you are feeling better now. Monkey reading to Paddington is a lovely photo. Looks like the cat is listening attentively. How lovely that your ex’s uncle thought of you in his will. Your passports arrived pretty quick, and yes, it is sad, that we’re not European any longer.

  8. Hope you’re feeling a lot better now. Junk mail in the UK is horrendous, drives me up the wall already. how lovely to be left something in a will, do let me know what it is

  9. I hope your cold is better and I love that pic of the boy and Paddington. I also got the kids passports back last week and they are non Europe ones. It’s all a bit of a mess isn’t it?

  10. Wow, the Lego facility is amazing! My dog is also less inclined to go out when it’s cold and when it’s raining. You should be very humbled; that’s very surprising of your ex in-laws. Nice time to get a passport

  11. I was so dead against Brexit but nothing seems to have happened yet which is a relief. I need a new passport but haven’t got the time to sort it plus have the problem of getting ones for the kids #project366
