What Day is it Anyway? Friday, March 27th, 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 Seven 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.

Last night we went out and joined with our neighbours to clap for our NHS and all Keyworkers. It was so moving that I could not video my street as I was so emotional so here is the news footage.

Thank You NHS

Today is another sunny day, the last for a while we are informed. The day started as ever, so we could skip that now except to say I couldn’t sleep so abandoned bed before six A.M. Leaving Hubby to sleep. Ruby was pleased to see me and we braved the early frost and wind.

The older lads got intouch early and they are okay, though we do have drive around to our middle sons place to leave some medicine on his door step. He is in the at risk catagory, having, stomach lung problems. At least we can wave to him from a distance.

I am feeling a little depressed and stressed I am feeling scared. But I must not dwell on this.

Keep calm.

Well it’s been another busy day a friend got in touch and asked if we were going shopping. We said no because we found it too stressful, she said she needed milk and bread, it was easier to take her some of our milk and bread, than think of her without. We have done this twice this week, she needs to bite the bullet and go and stock up! We have to!

Our middle lad is still unwell, he lives about seven miles from us. So we took him round some paracetamol, throat Lozenges and cough medicine. We left it on his doorstep and he waved to us from his window.

We also had to stop off on the way back because the blind couple wanted some rail tickets sorted for a refund. We did suggest that they wait until after this crisis is all over, but no they wanted the process started. I did point out that this was not urgent business…… We are in the throws of sorting it, or trying to now. It looks like our printer has run out of ink!

Stay calm. Notice my Bitmoji has had a hair cut like me.

Looks hubby has sorted the printer, refund request in the post!!!! We are hunkering down now. So far we are managing to keep away from everyone but the strain of running around after everyone is tiring us out.

I am off to cook dinner now and have a large glass of wine😜. I did not mean this to be a moaning post really I shall buck up by tomorrow.

Sadly we are on the upward curve 181 died today, we all need to stay in as the infections and deaths are doubling every three days at the moment.

Okay happy song time.

Be safe out there.

Duck shouted Desmond, as the fists started to fly, tables and chairs were pushed out of the way as the brawl took hold.

The police were quickly on the scene and waded in slowly restoring order.

Meanwhile across the road in the bank , Desmond’s brothers casually made off with the bootee.

#Fibbing Friday : 27th March 2020

Di at Pensitivity101 said:

Frank gave us some great questions last week and now it’s my turn.
As regular readers know, between us we have kept the Fibbing Friday challenge going and thank you all for your support and participation.

Below are 10 questions, the answers to which are entirely up to you.
The idea though is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly or even outrageous, in your response as you evade the truth.
Write a post with your answers and tag it “Fibbing Friday” or #FibbingFriday, then link back to this post so that others can enjoy your them and maybe join in too!
