This week for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku, I used synonyms for Conflict and Gypsy .

What day is it Anyway: Sunday 10th 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 it is a world full of confusion, especially here in England. I say England and not the UK because, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are staying in lockdown, they have firm hard rules to follow, STAY HOME. We on the other hand have Boris! Last night he made a speech …. It was the most confusing/woolly speech ever! Here it is if you have 10/13 minutes to be totally confused.

It’s so confusing, I wish he had just left it as it was. There are enough idiots out there not playing the game. I am just dreading the new spike, I expect, in 10 to 20 days. How about, “Grandparents can drive to see grandchildren but what happens when you get there? ” …. Oh! And what about “Go to work but don’t use public transport….unless you have to”…. Oh! And not until Wednesday? The whole speech was ridiculously woolly…. please someone do something positive. It’s so late in the day . We should of had strict rules from day one and closed all ports and airports. Lockdown should of been lockdown. We are in a huge Mess!

So back to ground hog day. Up stupid o’clock, let Ruby out fed, medicate and gave Ruby water, do house work, prepare breakfast hubby up sensible o’clock. Hubby walks Ruby . I baked a banana cake.

Hubby was outside doing the pointing on the back wall. Then I decided we needed to use up all the left over lamb. So I minced it up and, made bread crumbs, added two eggs and an onion and made rissoles.

I forgot to take a photo of the finished article but they were yummy. The hospital rang to tell us MIL had tested positive for Covid19 again. They will do another swab test again on Tuesday or Wednesday. Her temperature was still up, she has backache and has been tired for last few days. She has also bruised her knuckle possibly trying to opening the window. They were going to xray it to see what’s happened. Later in the day.

We pottered in the garden, the blind couple we help rang and and V said one of her hearing aids was not working properly. We said we’d pick it up and Hubby would check it out for her, he told her the wax guards probably needed changing. She was to put it in a bag and leave on her door step. Then we took Ruby for her walk. It had become very cold and windy!

Hubby missed his coat. We picked the hearing aid up from the step on the way back. Hubby cleaned the wax guard out ( not a fun job) put it back together then took it back. When he got home our youngest lad and his youngest son called us on Alexa that was fun. We had a good chat.

Hubby rang the hospital to ask after MIL they said they would set up a zoom call. Hubby was delighted . Her conversation is getting better. She asked how the family was and sent her love to everyone. She said she doesn’t like the food much but she is being waited on hand and foot. She said she will feel better when she gets home. Her conversation was a little slurred but it was a conversation… amazing. She mentioned she had hurt her hand amongst other things, like not being able to do the codeword in her mazagines. It was nice to see hubby speaking to her.

After hubby’s Zoom call I made the dinner we had the Rissoles I prepared earlier with chips and baked beans. They were very tasty.

This is how to make plump, juicy, extra tasty rissoles with hidden veggies! www.recipetineats.com

Rissoles

The speech I was talking about at the start of this post , was on at 7pm….

We finished the day off with a virtual night at the pub with our friends, they live six houses up and every Sunday since lock down we have a video call and a drink . They are great friends and always make us feel so much better. I hope we do the same for them. Then we went to bed!

Time for a Happy Song
