Project 366 2020 Week 46 Day 313-319 The first week where I’m on partial furlough and an up and down week on a number of levels
Sunday 8th November – Day 313
Remembrance Sunday – we watched the service on London on TV, so poignant to see it all so empty this year thanks to Coronavirus. If Brewster decided to sit on my lap for a while, most unusual.
Monday 9th November – Day 314
A busy morning at work and I was famished by the time I got home so decided to eat the Mr Lee’s Coconut Chicken Laksa I’d received in my Blog On goody bag. I’m not a huge fan of coconut so wasn’t sure I’d like it, but was pleasantly surprised.
Tuesday 10th November – Day 315
My first furlough day and I was flat out all day. Headed off to the local post office after walking my son to school as I needed to return something. This involved queueing outside the Co-op as they are only allowing 3 people inside for the post office queue now. Thankfully it wasn’t raining and my SIL turned up to queue behind me which we both found rather amusing.
Walked back home for a full-on blog day, just trying to catch up on a few review posts and general admin that just isn’t getting done these days.
Wednesday 11th November – Day 316
I’ve been feeling low all week, don’t know if it’s hormones, menopause, time of year or what, but I could have sat in the corner and sobbed at quite a few points this week.
I’d ordered a new cross stitch kit that I want to make as a present but I’ve left it quite late to get it made in time and when it arrived today I realised it’s bigger than I’d expected and won’t fit on my frame. So I’ve ordered a bigger one, which will be useful anyway, but further delays my start.
Thursday 12th November – Day 317
My Dad’s 78th birthday. He’s safe and well, along with Mum, so that’s good.
I think this is classed as my day off rather than Wednesday in my new working world this month. I love nail varnish, it doesn’t love me, if I do it at home it’s chipped within the first day and a mess within three days. I can’t afford to have my nails done each month these days and a friend from work suggested trying Miss Sophie nail wraps. Something new for me and I really needed a pick me up this week so I tried them out this morning. Quite easy to apply and let’s see how long they last.
Had a long telephone chat with my bestie and it was just what I needed to perk my spirits up a bit. I also booked tickets for an evening event at Silverstone as a birthday surprise for my son next month. Hopefully, as it’s an ‘in-car’ experience it won’t get cancelled.
Friday 13th November – Day 318
Must not get in the habit, but I treated myself to a couple of new tunic dresses with a discount code. Really like the pattern on this one as well as the colours.
Work was manic today for me and I was shattered by the time I’d finished.
Children in Need day and the kids could wear their pj’s to school. My son thought that was a mad idea (who wears pj’s to school Mummy!!) so he just went in his PE kit as normal on Fridays.
Saturday 14th November – Day 319
The menfolk have gone out on a few deliveries so I’m home alone and doing a bit of online shopping, with two sleeping cats for company. I’ve bought a few glass pieces from Dweomer Glass before and can highly recommend them.
