Why am I writing this post ? Because it’s day Seven 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.Immie in her Frou Frou days

Okay let’s skip the morning if anything is going to drive me mad it will be the mornings so monotonous. We took Ruby out for her walk.

Home I prepared some veg for the evening meal, then checked on my sisters and the lads. Chatted to friends via social media then took Ruby out again. A quiet day. I hope to sleep well tonight.

Happy Music Time.

Ruby and me.
Be safe out there

Yesterday started as every day, except hubby was very tired and slept in. I got the house cleaned, let Ruby out to do her business then fed and medicated her. Hubby got up and had his breakfast. He took Ruby for her walk on his own on his own because I had a Zoom meeting. The Pilates group I belong to got together and we have started having virtual lessons. Six to nine students to a lesson and our instructress. It was our first meeting and worked really well.


The rest of the day became rather stressful, phone calls calming friends who were feeling the stress of working from home, family being bored or worried. Oh! remember hubby drove a 25mile round trip to take his mother and brother a mask each ( she had to go and have her INR tested. Hubby had impressed on her and his brother that she had to wear the mask. She did not, no she said I did have it on my lap she told him. …Did his brother not even think to remind her…No, did they care that hubby drove all that way to deliver the masks (we could of used) his time, his health, his diesel and my nerves…. obviously not. I am saying no more we are both upset that she was put in danger.


Then I decided to organise my medication, which though not due yet is important. That took longer than usual.

Anyway it was not a relaxing afternoon or evening but we survived!

Be safe out thete.

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.

So today started as all days start, feeling sick, let Ruby out, yada yada yada Ground Hog Day.

I was determined to keep it quiet and relax today. No shops, no help runs , no stress.

We walked Ruby and that was good, no stress in the wood. Home and spent an hour chatting to be neighbours through the window, they stood on the middle of our lawn! I WhatsApped family and friends making sure everyone is fine. Then I had a lovely surprise when a blogger friend facetimed me.

Then I prepared a stew, finally I prepared dinner . So I did have a quiet day but I am still exhausted!

Here is a message from our esteemed leader!

Time for a happy song!

Be safe out there.

As ever the day started the same, early, cramp, sickness…let Ruby out, feed her! Feed hubby, we took our walk with Ruby. Yes if I am going to lose track of the days it will be the mornings.

Today I took some photos of the old tree trunks that the gardener’s at the wood have carved! A butterfly, a squirrel and a very aggrieved looking rabbit.

See what I mean about the rabbit ?W we got home I cleaned the downstairs toilet and the bathroom. Then I did the the rest of the house. I rang two friends who are on their own. They are both fine and sound cheerful so that’s good. Rang one sister spoke to other via wordpress so they are both good.

By eleven o’clock the sickness had passed so I had some breakfast. I did the washing and hung it out. Hubby decided to brave the shops, got most of my list but no flour which is a shame as I wanted to bake but hay ho small worries in this situation. Fed Hubby ,we had quiet afternoon but busy . I am going to cook a feta cheese and spinach cannelloni which was lurking in the depths of the freezer, which is good as it made room for the shepherds pies we cooked Tuesday. We are doing well with cooking because we like to cook from fresh. I have put up a photo of the cannelloni defrosted before cooking. We spoke to all the boys again this afternoon and our youngest and his two boys videoed us again it was lovely to see them all.

and here it is cooked and the salad.

It was tasty, anyway all eaten and cleared away now. Just having a glass of wine before it’s time to go to the door and clap for the NHS.

Be safe all of you

Be very safe.

It is 17.08 and it been a beautiful day weather wise, the sun is shining. So we were up at the usual and had breakfast, and let Ruby out. My sister in law rang and we had a chat, then we took Ruby for her walk at our deserted place, we only saw one person but I am getting nervous and eventhough we took her twice today, I am thinking we may have to stop walking her out side and just use the garden .. we shall see.

This was not taken today.© willowdot21

So we got home and Hubby was on the phone to the lads helping them make decisions, about, work, health issues and life in general. I went upstairs and cleaned the bathroom and bedrooms within an inch of their lives.! Then I washed my hair, the hair I cut the other day!

hair washed. © willowdot21.

Hubby then went out to the garden and pruned and tidied up, I have to say it does look lovely.

We had a delivery from Amazon, new scales. They are so nice, very chic.

Day three of the stew we had dumplings too.

Above tonights dinner, day three of the beef stew and dumplings and it was yummy.

This video brought me to tears, it has a strong message so whichever country you are in it is relevant to us all.

So it’s been a really good day. Time for some happy music . Now we cannot hold hands but we will be able to again …I hope and pray. Not today but one day.

Be safe out there.

So I was up with the lark again, it was another bad night, full of bad dreams and cramp. We took Ruby out for a walk at a usually busy popular dog walking spot. It was as we guessed almost deserted when we got there.

Anyway we had a lovely walk and Ruby enjoyed herself. We rang our elderly next door neighbour to see if he needed anything he said next time we went shopping could we get him some butter, could we get Danchurch butter from Waitrose. PLEASE, people are rioting in the aisles and he wants a brand name butter. ….Bless!

I can’t believe that all this panic buying is still going on. Selfish people grab, grab, grab while pensioners and exhausted frontline workers are left crying from the sheer unfairness of it all.

This is so wrong please, please, please make it stop.

I spoke to a friend who is a senior nurse, she is incharge of a clinic. She told me all clinics are being suspended and she and all her staff will be moved on the ICU wards nursing patients with Covid19. This is a nightmare I can’t believe this is happening.

Okay I have already told you all I am scared there’s no point in harping on.

I did soup for lunch a lovely veggie soup. Then I got bored so I decided to cut my hair. I cut off over two inches. But I think it looks okay.

In the afternoon our youngest son rang to say according to DDP there was a package on the door step. There was!

© willowdot21

He had sent me some wild and bloom flowers for mother’s day.

© willowdot21

These flowers arrive half asleep. Tomorrow they will look spectacular!

I checked on my sisters, a couple of friends. Oh! Yes we received a random act of kindness, one of our friends dropped us round a little present. So very kind.

© willowdot21

We walked Ruby again, had stew for dinner then . We spoke to all three of our lads on the phone. We are bored with TV tonight.

And so to Bed!

Another piece of hopeful music.

Be safe out there. Hugs to you all.
