Project 365 2022 Week 6 Day 37 – 43 The week that saw Pippi and Fudge go out in the garden by themselves and saw me enjoying the snowdrops at Stowe on my day off.
Sunday 6th February – Day 37
The Queen has ruled for 70 years today. What an amazing woman she is.
My Christmas Cactus is having a second wind with lots of new buds appearing.
We had a home day doing jobs and the OH made us sausage baps for brunch and we all survived the experience.
Monday 7th February – Day 38
After work, I decided it was time to ditch the cat harnesses and see what happened. It didn’t take Pippi long to discover a way into our neighbour’s garden but took Fudge almost an hour to figure it out as well. Thankfully they were both home before my son came home from school. Although Fudge decided to wee in a box full of Jenga blocks n the living room when he came in. He’s never done anything like that before, so he wasn’t in my best books.
Tuesday 8th February – Day 39
We had lots of birds in the garden today including these hungry goldfinches.
Wednesday 9th February – Day 40
The bathroom sink decided to totally block this morning, so sorting that out was my first job of the day. Once that issue was resolved I headed off to Stowe for a long walk and to see this years ‘Stowedrops‘. The sky was determined to remain a murky shade of grey, but it was quite mild and perfect for my walk. Treated myself to a couple of metal flower ornaments for the garden and some Tete a Tete bulbs to plant out in a couple of planters in the garden.
Thursday 10th February – Day 41
Typical that the blue skies arrived once I was on a working day!
After I’d finished work I picked my SIL up and we headed out for lunch to the S&H Coffee Shop which has now moved from town into the Red Cow at Chesterton for a spot of lunch and a catch-up.
Friday 11th February – Day 42
My son finally got to wear the football boots we were told they had to have for the first week of this term. His first taste of Rugby, and he’s managed to lose a football stud already. So guess I’ll be trying to sort that out on Monday before his next outdoor PE lesson on Tuesday.
It’s always a reflective day for me, 22 years ago a dear friend was killed on his motorbike. As I was preparing dinner I discovered that another friend who I spent a lot of time with in my teens and then went on to work with for ten years had died yesterday. She was such a funny person, with razor-sharp humour and an infectious laugh. She was the same age as me and leaves two children.
Saturday 12th February – Day 43
A local antique dealer works out of part of the unit where I used to work and we used to take turns in making the tea got to know each other over the last few years. He’s a lovely guy, been on TV a few times too, and he’s done me a few deals over the years on different items. When I saw that he’d got a few railway items in stock recently I knew some of my tax rebate might just have to go on the GWR wagon plaque. Today it reached it’s final destination and will live in our own ‘engine shed’. My GWR mad son is rather impressed with this particular acquisition.
