What Day is it Anyway? Saturday, March 21st, 2020

Why is Linda hosting this post.

She said.”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

Why am I writing this post ? Because it’s day Six since we have been told by Bossa to stay home and socially distance ourselves. We are all in different circumstances and yet we are all in the same boat.

So I was up with the lark again, it was another bad night, full of bad dreams and cramp. We took Ruby out for a walk at a usually busy popular dog walking spot. It was as we guessed almost deserted when we got there.

Anyway we had a lovely walk and Ruby enjoyed herself. We rang our elderly next door neighbour to see if he needed anything he said next time we went shopping could we get him some butter, could we get Danchurch butter from Waitrose. PLEASE, people are rioting in the aisles and he wants a brand name butter. ….Bless!

I can’t believe that all this panic buying is still going on. Selfish people grab, grab, grab while pensioners and exhausted frontline workers are left crying from the sheer unfairness of it all.

This is so wrong please, please, please make it stop.

I spoke to a friend who is a senior nurse, she is incharge of a clinic. She told me all clinics are being suspended and she and all her staff will be moved on the ICU wards nursing patients with Covid19. This is a nightmare I can’t believe this is happening.

Okay I have already told you all I am scared there’s no point in harping on.

I did soup for lunch a lovely veggie soup. Then I got bored so I decided to cut my hair. I cut off over two inches. But I think it looks okay.

In the afternoon our youngest son rang to say according to DDP there was a package on the door step. There was!

He had sent me some wild and bloom flowers for mother’s day.

These flowers arrive half asleep. Tomorrow they will look spectacular!

I checked on my sisters, a couple of friends. Oh! Yes we received a random act of kindness, one of our friends dropped us round a little present. So very kind.

We walked Ruby again, had stew for dinner then . We spoke to all three of our lads on the phone. We are bored with TV tonight.

And so to Bed!

Another piece of hopeful music.

Be safe out there. Hugs to you all.

It’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Here is Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “welcome.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Shelley Krupa

Your welcome, is a polite response to someone who you have said thank you to. It’s a nice was of putting people at their ease. Eg: ” Thank you for the lift” “No worries your welcome”.

Often its the first thing you say to people who visit your house, “Welcome, do come in” or “Welcome home” You can also have a welcoming atmosphere, fire, greeting.


We are so pleased to see you

Even though you are late

Long time no see it true

Come in theres a welcoming fire in the grate

Oh! We have missed you so much

Many years have passed

Everyone is so pleased to see you.


Be safe, be well and be happy.
