Project 365 2022 Week 4 Day 23 – 29 The week my son took control in the kitchen and I took myself off for a long walk in a day of two halves, weatherwise.
Sunday 23rd January – Day 23
My son was in charge of the kitchen today, he made a tuna pasta salad with garlic bread for lunch and then chicken pie and veg for dinner. He’s a rather fussy eater so we decided it was best to stick with a bought chicken pie that we all know he will eat, rather than making one from scratch and then it being wasted. It might not have been gourmet cooking but it was lovely to just have someone else do it all and to see how much he enjoyed telling his sous chef what to do for him. He’s already decided he’s making pizzas next weekend and he’s told his Dad that he has got to make brunch the weekend after – that’ll be interesting, 55 and cooks nothing!
Monday 24th January – Day 24
There was enough tuna pasta leftover for me to have some for lunch.
We had some news about someone we care about which knocked me for six.
Tuesday 25th January – Day 25
I didn’t get much sleep last night and was a hot mess all day. This Robin obviously knew I needed cheering up a bit.
Wednesday 26th January – Day 26
I took myself off to Blenheim Palace as soon as the main gates opened for a walk around the parkland. Six miles later the sun and blue sky appeared. It had been really grey all morning – typical, but better late than never!
Thursday 27th January – Day 27
Pippi and Fudge are still not convinced about the outdoors but I keep persevering. I really want to take their harnesses off but I’m not sure they’re ready to go it alone. Brewster was less than impressed to find them in ‘his’ cat kennel.
Friday 28th January – Day 28
I ordered my son a new mattress a few weeks ago and it arrived this morning and I’d paid for them to take the old one away. It made me realise just how bad his old mattress was and it wasn’t even that old. He’ll hopefully sleep really well on his new one.
We’ll be joining in with the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch again this weekend and I was really pleased to see this blackbird at lunchtime, I’ve not spotted one in the garden all week which is unusual.
Saturday 29th January – Day 29
It was more about squirrel watch than bird watching here this morning, with this cheeky one having a run around on the lawn as well as nicking bird food from the bird table.
We did get long-tailed and blue tits on the feeders though after he’d left.
