Project 365 2021 Week 44 Day 303 – 309 The week where we said goodbye to October with pumpkins and said hello to November with fireworks.
Sunday 31st October – Day 303
Halloween. We decided not to take part in trick or treating again this year. Maybe we’ll go back to it next year. So instead of having our pumpkin on the kitchen windowsill, we had it in the living room instead.
I had a quiet day at home and the menfolk went up to Gaydon to the Great British Model Railway show.
Monday 1st November – Day 304
Back to school for my son, and a bit of peace and quiet for me. After I’d finished work I dropped some donations into my son’s old school and headed off for a walk in the sunshine. Just an hour, walking to our local nature reserve but it felt so good to be outside for a bit.
Tuesday 2nd November – Day 305
A two cats on my lap moment. Brewster isn’t much of a lap cat, unlike Fudge who loves nothing more than sitting on my lap in the evening at the moment. This moment didn’t last long but it was nice while it did.
Wednesday 3rd November – Day 306
My day off and I’m full of cold thanks to the menfolk of the household generously sharing their germs.
Had my hair done and had a catch up with my bestie. I’d seen a funeral notice for a lady she had worked with a long time ago. It’s sad how you lose touch with people and seeing the lady’s photo brought back lots of memories. A lovely lady.
These two were cuddled up together for ages. My son made his second batch of blueberry muffins this week, this time at school. They certainly didn’t look as good as the ones he made here.
Thursday 4th November – Day 307
I had my end of probation appraisal with my boss. All good and it was definitely the right decision for me.
After school, my son and I headed into town to pick up a couple of things I need for next week and he had his dental check-up. All good for another six months. Not so impressed to be driving home in the dark. Roll on March.
Friday 5th November – Day 308
Guy Fawkes Night, although the local display isn’t until tomorrow. The blue sky is misleading as it’s really chilly here this morning. My son has had to walk to school by himself for most of this week and to stop any wobbles, I’ve been walking with him to the main road, he’s just needed a friendly face to see him on his way.
Showing my age with my post today – appointment for a routine mammogram and the new ABBA CD!
Saturday 6th November – Day 309
Our local fireworks display takes place tonight and hopefully, that will brighten up what is a really dull and grey day here at the moment. The only bit of colour is coming from one of my orchids which is flowering again.
