Project 365 2021 Week 10 Day 66 – 72 The week my son went back to school for the first time this year and experienced a whole year class for the first time in Primary school.
Sunday 7th March – Day 66
We went for a walk close to home, it was lovely to get outside, hear the birds sing and explore.
When we got back I got everything ready for the morning, school and work stuff all packed up.
Monday 8th March – Day 67
Back to school and work, how long for this time I wonder? My son was eager to see his best friend but very uncertain about the changes to his class and teacher. It’s going to be an interesting week.
I walked to work as I want to try to lose some weight I’ve gained over the last three months. It was good to have some adult company for a change and good to get back into the swing of things. But by the time I walked home I was shattered and struggled to stay awake before I needed to meet my son!
He was very unhappy with a number of changes that have been made, but getting any information out of him was hard.
Tuesday 9th March – Day 68
I was entirely sure that my son wouldn’t try to run back home this morning. Luckily I got him there and he only ran back to give me another kiss and hug. He’s not happy but he’s there.
It was a lovely day to walk to work and back and it was so nice I even got to have my lunch in the garden in the sunshine.
Wednesday 10th March – Day 69
My day off so of course the sun has gone back into hiding and rain and gale force winds are predicted. I went shopping and treated myself to some sweet peas. These have to be started off indoors so hopefully, they will do better than the seeds I planted outdoors last year.
Filled my car up with petrol – I think it’s only the third time I’ve done that since I bought it, and once was on the day so I could drive it home. Mad. But still not as mad as Dad, who hasn’t filled his up in Spain since last June!
Thursday 11th March – Day 70
It was so windy overnight, my son and I both struggled to sleep. The OH heard nothing.
I opted to drive to work rather than getting soaked. Once I’d finished I headed off to pick up some Secondary school uniform that a friend had seen going for free. A blazer that looks brand new, some trousers and a jumper. I think the blazer will be ok sizewise, better too big than too small and everything else will come in handy over the next few years. It was all very much appreciated.
The crocuses in the front garden were looking rather battered when I got home.
We’ve had our annual caterpillar delivery – so the fun starts now and it’ll give my son something else to think about other than school. Although he came out smiling under his mask today and seemed to have had a better day.
Friday 12th March – Day 71
My patience with people has run out now. How lovely must it be to go away to stay with family for a week over the new year and then for your parents to come and stay with you for a few days this week. I am so fed up with people how can’t follow the guidelines that are in place for the good of us all. My neighbours are really annoying me now.
Anyway that aside, it was lovely to receive a couple of treasure maps from Treasure Map Trails today that hopefully, we’ll be able to enjoy once we are allowed to explore further than our town again.
The end of the first week back to school and work and we are both tired but we’ve survived. My son even had a smile on his face again this afternoon.
Saturday 13th March – Day 72
We have a pair of robins who visit us on a daily basis. I can’t work out which is the male and which is the female but they are definitely together. Although getting a shot of them at the same time is impossible. So here is one of our pair. The magpie nest is still a work in progress, it amazes me that it is still in one piece after the wind we’ve had this week. I saw a chaffinch in the garden this week too.
We’re having a leisurely day today. Thankfully school homework isn’t starting until next week either. The OH has gone off to pick up produce and is picking my son up on the way back to his warehouse, so I’ll get a bit of peace this afternoon for a few hours too.
How has the week treated you?
