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.
Love we all need love and patience. Love is easy we love our families and friends and as things are we are dealing with them all at a distance, well I am. We all know distance makes the heart grow stronger! It’s patience that is the difficult one. Hubby and I are doing well but just occasionally it’s hard.
So I have to admit a little depression has set in but I am fighting it! We have the added pressure of two of our lads being at risk. One is near enough to drive over with shopping and medicine, he is on furlough and at prey to the worries and pressures that brings. The oldest lad lives on the coast and is over an hour and a half drive away which in these strange days is too far to drive. He is working from home and has friends to help occasionally, plus she uses Amazon. Our youngest, with wife and children lives over 45 minutes drive away, he also works from home, just started a new job. He has enough on his plate as well as helping his neighbours. So we potter along, keeping busy in the house ringing friends and neighbours to make sure they are coping and checking on family too, walking Ruby, and shopping every ten days or so. Some days it’s really hard to stay positive.
Then since Easter Monday Mother in law has been in hospital after two seizures, one massive. The news about her swings from good to bad and I have documented her progress so far in these #WDIIA. posts. She has A delirium, which is like dementia but as she fully compus mentis before the siezures now she is totally different. It has been a roller coaster again this week with very conflicting news depending on who we speak too. Apparently she has the nursing staff entertained , they think she is hysterical and very sweet, eats casts amounts and likes to sing to them. That’s not at all the mother in law I know.
Well today hubby rang to speak to the Dr and got an awful shock. She had a temperature and cough yesterday, no one told us this yesterday. Back to today, her temperature is down a little, her cough is not as bad, she has been moved in to a single room, put on anti biotics and tested for Covid19. This is really scary, we are all praying that she does not have Covid19. She will be 100 years old on the 1st of May if you can, please pray she is negative and makes her birthday.
Okay in no particular order because I can remember since Monday, walked Ruby, hubby went shopping, cleaned all windows inside and out, delivered shopping to middle son, got so stressed out with stressed hubby I cancelled a zoom call with the boys and grandchildren, hubby and I had a blazing row… I felt sick with worry.
Cooked a banana cake, had a Pilates zoom lesson, checked on neighbours. Got up a stupid o’clock every day.
So I have to apologize for hardly posting or commenting this week it’s just been so hectic here. I am so so sorry.
Good points, we are still standing, still talking and still hoping.
Time for a happy song.

Stop apologising, Sis. You are, as are we all, living through ridiculously exceptional circumstances, and we all understand.
Mum will be in my thoughts and prayers ❤
Thank you Sis 💜💜💜
I agree with Ritu. The norm has been kicked into touch and we are all trying to get to grips with some kind of routine in order to keep sane.
I am so, so sorry about your MIL. Thoughts and positive vibes are coming your way by the truckload.
As an aside, ish, I remember when my MIL was in hospital and everyone said what a lovely old lady she was. WTF? She was a cantankerous old biddy who didn’t have a good word to say to or for anyone and we were convinced they had the wrong patient!
❤ ❤ ❤
Thank you Di, the voice of reason, that’s what I was thinking and beating myself up for it …but she has never liked me …yes strange times 💜💜💜
My MIL didn’t like me either, mainly because I wouldn’t stand for her silliness, took her to task on more than one occasion and totally lost it with her the way she treated Hubby then had the gall to say she loved him. I told her to her face she had a bloody funny way of showing it and stormed out. It was a bad time as we were staying there having sold the bungalow and she actually kicked us out. Hence on the road with a tent in 2007 😦
OMG, she was harsh! Mine is more subtle than that , again thank you 💜💜💜💜
No problems. We got over it
You are strong and beautiful people 💜💜💜
We are Us and happy as such.
I am so sorry to read this news, Willow. I hope all will be well with your MIL. My elderly aunt and uncle (both nearly 90) have both had and recovered from this illness.
That’s excellent news Robbie were they tested , I am so glad for their recovery. Stay safe and thank you 💜
Yes, they were all tested because they were admitted into hospital. They had oxygen support.
Thank is so amazing Robbie so pleased for you all💜
I am so sorry to hear about your Mother in law. How scary. Well, no wonder you are depresses and having rows. This is scary when everything is okay. When it gets personal it hurts down to our souls. Keeping you in my loving thoughts.
Thank you so much I really appreciate you thinking of me , trying to stay positive be well and safe 💜
