Project 365 2019 Week 49 Day 335 – 341
Sunday 1st December – Day 335
We had a chilled out morning at home doing jobs, and then late afternoon we headed over to Blenheim Palace for their Christmas at Blenheim experience. It was a nice way to start the month.
Monday 2nd December – Day 336
With the news we’d received about my auntie over the weekend I knew I needed to support my uncle later in the week, so I asked my two bosses if I could take unpaid leave on Wednesday. It’s the right thing to do. The OH arranged to finish work early and my son’s best friend and his Mum are on standby if the OH is late.
It’s turned really cold over the weekend and was freezing this morning.
We’ve been working on a 3D puzzle that we received for review. It’s really quite difficult and were both struggling to complete it.
Tuesday 3rd December – Day 337
A full workday for me and I finally finished the contacts project I’ve been working on. Now to get everyone to provide an update.
Paddington was in the cat house in the evening as he tipped over a really tricky puzzle that we’ve been working on. It went everywhere, back to the puzzle board. This was him earlier in the day, but it rather summed up how knacked I’m feeling at the moment.
Wednesday 4th December – Day 338
We had some festive musical accompaniment before school.
I then headed down to Kent on the train, although it makes it a long journey as you have to change in London, it seemed far less stressful than driving, especially with the fog we’re getting in Oxfordshire. The sun may have been shining as the train passed Battersea Power Station but it certainly wasn’t at the start and end of the day.
The day was a little daunting as I wasn’t sure exactly what we would be dealing with but being there for my Uncle, and representing Mum, as well as being a niece, it’s important. More tests are needed, to confirm what the doctors believe, so although it wasn’t quite as nad as we’d feared today, I think it’s just prolonging the inevitable really.
Anyway, it was good to spend time with both my Uncle and Auntie, even if the circumstances are far from ideal.
I really could have done with the train not being packed out on the way home from Marylebone. It was standing room only as the train before mine had been cancelled. To say I was shattered by the time I got home would be an understatement.
Thursday 5th December – Day 339
Cuddles before school are a daily requirement. Paddington is far more willing to oblige than Brewster would be.
Managed to track down some number candles for a certain young man’s cake for next week but realising that I’m not organised for Christmas at all. I’ve not written any cards, bought stamps or anything. Normally everything is wrapped and posted by now. I’ve also cocked up the school photos as normally get them in the cardboard frames as it’s easier for posting, but forgot about that when I ordered them this time – bugger!
Friday 6th December – Day 340
My son loved Berry’s overnight antics where he and some friends played Pin the Nose on the Reindeer, and he wanted to try it for himself before school. Anything to get out of practising his spellings.
Our work’s Christmas party and boy was it needed. We’ve all had ‘stuff’ going on this year, but we’ve kept each other smiling. MY SIL came round to sit with my son so I could go as the OH won’t be home til late as usual.
Saturday 7th December – Day 341
All plans for the day were cancelled and we ended up having a pj day instead. I wasn’t feeling at all well. Not quite the start to the weekend I’d planned. I’d also forgotten to do anything with Berry the Elf before I went to bed, thankfully my son didn’t seem to comment on his lack of antics!
