What Day is it Anyway Friday 17th April 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 ? 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.

Let’s talk about Captain Tom Moore this brilliant very nearly one hundred year old is walking in his garden to raise money for the NHS. What an amazing feat he has achieved so far he has raised twenty two million pounds and rising. We have added our bit you can also if you wish at Just Giving Captain Tom Moore’s 100th Birthday Walk For The NHS. What an amazing man.

So usual start to the day, I had a zoom Pilates lesson with my class, I was slightly late for that ( I hear you asking, how can she be late, she is locked in how can she be late ). I needed to set Hubby up on Zoom so he could see his mother. Well I got him sorted and missed only 30 mins of the lesson. I am afraid I did not enjoy the lesson as I was worried about hubby and his mum.

The afternoon was filled with sending reports on M.I.L. We had our Zoom call it wasn’t what Hubby was hoping for. A lovely young occupational therapist called us then sent us the nessscary to join the meeting, she greeted us on zoom smiles and bubbly, she walked down the corridor then said “Give me a sec while I gown up” when she picked the iPad back up she had gown, protective glasses, gloves and a mask. Then we saw M.I.L. she looked all smiles and had absolutely no idea who we were ,or who the girl in the mask was. Sadly her speech is very muddled and she thought hubby was her father. Conversation was one sided, she kept saying, yes, lovely and forty two? But her smile was bright. We were on for about ten minutes but she seemed more intent on drinking her tea so we said goodbye. Poor hubby is so upset. Personally I think as long as she is happy that’s good. I do empathize though as my mum was lost to me about four years before she died. She had no idea who we were, or the child, she always looked trapped and scared. Thankfully M.I.L looks happy, bright eyes and smiling she seems to be liked by the staff too, for which we are very grateful at this very difficult time for the NHS.

Sadly Hubby’s family were their usual uncooperative selves. I spent the afternoon dealing with firstly a the blind lady and her partner needed me to get them a refund on some rail tickets they had bought and of course now they cannot travel. That was sorted via phone and email. Also spent two hours on a call to help sister in law set up Zoom… I think Zoom need to start paying me 😜.

Quiet evening, I think I have a cold coming plus I am beyond exhausted, Hubby’s family have really drained me.

Time for a happy song.

You know you must 🥴
I so miss them 🥴
Be safe 💜

What Day is it Anyway Thursday 16th April 2020

Yes we are all hoping for a cure or a vaccine but these things do not happen overnight. Young parents must be wondering what future their children have been born into. I fear for my children and my grandchildren. The thought of being a new mum right now seems very bleak to me.

So you must if got my mornings by now, up at stupid o’clock, feed Ruby, hubby up at sensible o’clock, has breakfast. Get some jobs done, clean kitchen window inside and out and plastic surrounds on kitchen door. Extra to normal cleaning and wiping down.

Had a zoom call organised with a friend at 11.30am. Just getting ready for this when a neighbour rang with a problem. That sorted by phone. I was half an hour late for my zoom coffee date!

In the after making hubby lunch I have no recollection of what we did. We rang the hospital twice as we kept getting conflicting news the top and bottom of it is she is very confused, she thinks she is on holiday and her speech is very gabblled. I had to miss a writing sprint schedule for the afternoon due to family issues. Oh! And we drove over and dropped our middle son’s clean washing off. We put it on his doorstep and talk to him throughout the window then we get back in the car he comes out as we drive off and waves goodbye 💜

Well it was Thursday night so at 8pm we joined the neighbours, at a sensible distance to cheer and clap for the NHS and all keyworkers. I took one of my posters out and waved it about while cheering. Next week I am going to take out some saucepan lids and make a bigger noise!
