What Day is it Anyway. Endure. 6th April 2020

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.

Our host Linda at #WDIIA called her post, today and it really took my heart she said :”Endurance. I think it should be the word of the year, not just the day.”

I totally agree and right now all we can do is endure. I think the best way we can do this is to find humour in the situation.

Yes another early start sorted Ruby had a coffee and checked my emails, and read some posts. Hubby up by 8.30, breakfast then time to exercise Ruby.

On the way back we had to stop to get the remainder of our middle son’s prescription. We had tried to pick it up for him on Friday but they did not have one of the items so we had to return. I waited in the car with Ruby while hubby queued up, as with all queued now each person separated my ten metres. It took an hour and there was great confusion caused by the staff about our sons prepaid certificate. They told hubby he had to pay, he told them he did not as our son had a prepaid certificate,they said it was out of date, not politely but very loud and aggressively infront of the whole queue. Luckily hubby had the email from when it was paid and all details on his phone. Eventually he had the medication almost thrown at him. I must add here that we totally understand that the staff are working under scary and stressful conditions but there was no need to treat hubby like a criminal shouting at him and not even apologize when he showed them it was them and not him or our lad at fault! Luckily they are not our regular chemist’s. I was very proud hubby kept his cool and was polite.

By the time we got home hubby was upset and tired. A neighbour rang to ask him something so I gave him a cuppa and let him relax. After lunch he did some gardening, Ruby spent the whole afternoon with him, she is such a daddy’s girl.

I did my daily exercise video then had a shower and washed my hair. Then it was to get the dinner, shepherds pie and cabbage and beans. Hubby rang his mum. We heard from the boys and both my sisters so we know they are okay. In the news our prime minister Boris who went into hospital last night is now in intensive care. Let’s add him to our prayers. That’s about it for now, we need a happy song.

Thank You

And wash your hands.
Be safe 💜💜

Yes I do hope everything will be alright. I do weep for my grandchildren, my loved ones and my amazing friends. We must all pull together we can’t slack now. Sadly people are dying , too many. No one is safe.

So ground hog day, up at stupid o’clock ..let Ruby out, fed and medicated her, Hubby up at 8am, breakfast, 9am our son, wife and grandchildren video called us , that was fun , noisy and excited.

Home again time to do our half hour exercise video. Then the blind couple rang about their talking clocks, one was not working! We managed to fix the situation over the phone. The thing is they don’t seem to worry as we do! They want something, they insist. I think though we have finally got through to them we cannot come to them we can not go out. They have official numbers to call on. We can help with essentials and do but they have all clocks and watches working now.

We were in high demand this afternoon a neighbour next door but one rang to ask for some help over a door lock , also sorted over the phone.

For dinner I cooked toad in the hole! Now we are having a quiet evening just listened to our Queen, I was surprised at how short her speech was.

I am praying not only for the UK but for every country in the world. For all my family and friends and all my dear blogging friends here on wordpress every one of you. EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT!

We all need help at the moment, the minnows, the trout’s, the eagles, the ducks, the elephants and the ants among us. We are all suffering together. I thought this song was so apt. We are living in uncertain times, not your everyday circumstances. We were all one cell in the sea to begin with, we are all the same under the skin. We need to be kind and help eachother.

I was up before 6am again , I just can’t sleep so I am getting up earlier and earlier every day. I just wake up anxious and so it’s easier to just get up! Ruby got up about 7.30am and went out in the garden then had her breakfast and medication before going back to bed. Hubby got up an hour later. I did not join him on the dog walk because I was expecting my medication to arrive, it was due to arrive by royal mail. So I staid in and cleaned the house while hubby and Ruby had their walk.

When they got back we did the Walk a Mile happy exercise video.

My medication arrived safely and then I rang my friend who is doing well too.

Then hubby rang the blind couple that we help. They no had a problem with both their speaking clocks , their wristwatches and Jim’s phone. We told them to put them all in a carrier bag and leave them on the door step. Long story short hubby fixed everything and took it all back. Job done.

We had dinner. I cooked Prawn and broccoli stir fry.

Last night we had a video call with two of our lads and this evening we had a 4 way video with all three lads and one of the grandsons, this is so much fun but it is really quite exhausting!

Hubby did a load of gardening, I did, ironing, washing and housework. Well that about it for now.

Happy Song now

Be safe
Sending you love

Well what day is it anyway…its Monday. Up later, hubby did the Ruby duties. I had coffee while hubby had breakfast, I felt rough! It passed! We took Ruby for her walk.

Note my own self cut hair 😜

Hi, fed Ruby, cleaned up then had a video call with my friend who lives just up the road, it was such fun as there was her, her grown up daughter and son and her mum..other people we all had a virtual party 😜

We had lunch , then we had to organise an one hundreth birthday greeting from the Queen for hubby’s Mum. She will be one hundred on May the first. We did have a afternoon tea organised for her but we have had to cancel that.

Then I rang my sister in law while hubby drove a twenty four mile round trip to take his mum a face mask. He found out while on the phone to her that she has to have her RNI blood test tomorrow. Hubby’s brother is staying with her and will take her to have the test. So he has driven over to leave them a mask each , hopefully to protect her. It’s silly but I am worrying about him.

This evening I am cooking fish and chips. Time for a happy and inspiring song.

Me and the birds

How did your day start! Mine started the same as every day since lock down! I stripped the bed and changed it, put the washing on, we then walked Ruby.

When I got home the washing was done so I hung it out, it was incredibly windy and the duvet cover flew off the washing line, unfortunately the washing line is on the part of the garden that Ruby uses as a toilet… Hence I needed to wash the duvet again! Long story short I got two lines of washing out !

It was a wrap up warm day.

Later in the day I discovered that the washing line had broke and the duvet cover a pair of pyjamas, a tea shirt …all will have to be washed again.

We had dinner then basically that’s my day

I have been intouch with friends and family. I am so tired so night night all.

But only allowed virtual ones.
Be safe out there.

The Three Things Challenge #188

Welcome to Di from pensitivy101: The Three Things Challenge. #188
Every day she’ll give you three things that will hopefully trigger your creativity.
You don’t have to use them all if you don’t want to, simply read the prompt and see what comes to mind. Today’s Three Things are VIOLIN, WIRE, HANDLE

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.

The twins were identical to look at. Tempramentally though they were chalk and cheese. Their parents had a real job on their hands, they were a nightmare to handle.

When the girls got to seven years they both showed a great interest in music. They were each bought a violin, they learnt to play and were both exstremely talented. Music was the only thing the the girls could agree about and even that could become competitive!

They became professionals when they grew up they always played together. The only way to tell them apart was the violins, Vanessa’s violin was acoustic and May’s was electric and so had a wire!
