What Day is it Anyway. Friday 8th May and Saturday 9th of May. 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.

Yes here comes the sun and today is going to be as beautiful as yesterday, Friday was. So far it’s 7.19 am on Saturday and I feel like I have been up for hours. But for now let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Saturday 8th May 2020

Groundhog Day once more. Up at stupid o’clock let Ruby out, fed her and gave her, her medication. Hubby up at sensible o’clock, walks Ruby. Housework, Pilates at 10.30am, we all stopped for the two minutes silence.

I had to give up on my Pilates Lesson twenty minutes early because my WiFi was crap and playing up!

Friday was V.E. Day, this year saw the Victory in Europe 75th anniversary. There was a fly by, by the Red Arrows. And two Spitfires flew over the White Cliffs of Dover.

We had a minute’s silence at 11am for the war dead .

It was such a lovely day that after lunch we sat in the garden and enjoyed the sun. Checked up on our middle son who has not been well again. He has medication now so should improve. We also checked up on our eldest who is not enjoying self isolation, he is a gregarious chap who thrives on face to face contact so he finds it difficult to not see his mates in person. His work calls and video meetings and his social video calls just don’t cut it for him. He was very unsettled by the news footage of people having socially distanced V.E. Day parties . … Best not tell him our youngest son,his wife and two boys had one in their street, they all stayed in their front gardens to celebrated.

I can see both sides but as much I can see my lad’s road , from what he said we’re being sensible, many others in other places were not. There were “front garden/ drive party’s near us and a large gathering on a green near us too but none in our section of the road. I am very concerned that if too many people take chances things will definitely just get worse. I just wish people would behave.

It was. Lovely afternoon so we did not take Ruby out until late, the woods were lovely, hardly any people there to dodge.

When we got back I did the ironing, we had dinner after 7 pm. Cold lamb from the day before and bubble and squeak made from the leftover veg.

MIL was fine all day and when Hubby rang she was sitting in her room, smiling and waving to the Nurses.

Time for a happy song.

Satuday 9th May

Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. That is not so easy when you are in lockdown. I have been threatening to make a banana cake all week! It is still not made and it’s Saturday!

Well up at even more stupid o’clock, did all the usual, hubby took Ruby, I had a shower and washed my hair. Hubby rang hospital, MIL, had woken up with back ache, refused breakfast, had some paracetamol and gone back to sleep. Her latest Covid test result was not back. That’s worrying , the backache that is, because she has been so perky and eating like a horse. We spent a long time on the phone to our eldest, he’s still feeling low but better than the day before. Hubby did some more pointing to the garden wall. We had a couple of chats with middle son. The youngest son what’s app us two cute videos of the grandchildren. I did some washing and got it out on the line.

After lunch we sat in the garden. We checked on MIL again, she had not had much lunch and was asleep again . This is now a concern. Hopefully we are worrying for no reason. Test still not back.

Took Ruby for her walk late again as it was so hot. We also took middle sons washing over for him. We had Quiche and salade for dinner. We will check on MIL later.

Time for a happy song.

    So much going on, sis.
    We had a socially distanced street party here on our road yesterday.
    We stayed, at a safe distance, but close enough to deposit a plate of cakes freshly baked and shout a conversation with some of our neighbours. The kids sat, again at a distance, from their street friends, and had a quick catch up. Seriously, they needed that contact, even if from afar… the kids have been going slowly mad…
    We left for our garden after a short while, but I know a group of them were out there, drinking and celebrating until late.
    There are a group of around four households who are all neighbours and also family. A lovely bunch, but quite gregarious when they are together. I could see the distancing not happening, and getting less and less as their celebrations continued.
    This was why we didn’t stay that long. Hubby didn’t even come out, and was annoyed we even went, but we were sensible. Can’t say the same for the rest of them, though…

      I know it’s difficult, my eldest is really upset by all this he really has played everything by the book. He is feeling very low and I am worried about him. It’s not even as if he lives anywhere near us , so we can’t check on him as we do on our middle lad. Did hubby dearest get over you guys going out to the party. It always the few, like the family you mention, how ever lovely they are that spoil it for the rest of us. On other news we are worried about Ivy 💜

    It’s very difficult when news is designed to maximise the negatives and leave the impression of a mass of social distance breaches. There are always idiots sadly. And today Boris will probably confuse us with another message.

      Yes why does it always have to be like that, and yes Boris will be out there fluffing and blustering, say nothing helpful! I don’t watch the news unless I have to and I don’t buy news papers and try to encourage our eldest lad to do the same… But he’s on his own and miles away…
