What day is it Anyway. Wednesday 28th April 2020 through Saturday 2nd May.

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.

So here we are still in lockdown though many people are breaking it. There are more cars on the roads, more people walking around. I get it I honestly do, but I don’t agree. People are worried about loosing their jobs, their homes even their sanity. I do understand all that but if people don’t follow the rules more people will die, the daily death figures will rise and the lockdown could be prolonged and possibly the rules made stricter.

Everyone is suffering and not just the adults. Children are finding it hard not seeing their friends and extended family. A video call is not as good running around with friends, grandparents smiling and chatting is not a good substitute for a cuddle. It’s so very hard for everyone. Everyone is thrown together and longing to get out and feel free.

Yes life is a rollercoaster right now and what many of us had thought might be boring has been anything but. All of our lives our upsidedown and askew. We may never get back to normal, maybe life will be better after all this, maybe it will be worse. We just don’t know, I personally know my life will be very different.

I’m with the birds.

Wednesday 29th

Same morning routine hubby took Ruby for her walk. The Plumber arrive not long after 9am to fix the drain. We know the plumber and use him all the time. He did a great job and very careful about social distancing. Hubby decided to power wash the patio after the plumber had gone and I had a Zoom Pilates class. We both felt better for the exercise and change of having someone else around even when keeping at a proper distance. We were both delighted that the downstairs toilet was working again 💜.

I cant remember what we did in the afternoon, I think we had an argument or was that Thursday, or Friday or all three who knows. I think we picked up our middle sons washing. If your new here our middle son lives about 20min drive from us. He is at risk, with health issues, so we help him with shopping and doing his washing because his washing machine is broken….long story.

Thursday 30th

Ground Hog Day.

Usual morning, up at stupid o’clock see to Ruby hubby up at sensible o’clock. He had to go to the hospital again as he wanted his mum to have her cards and cake for Friday morning which was her 100th Birthday. The ward said they were going to put on a celebration for her. Had not all this Covid19 not been happening, and she had not of had the seizures and then not caught the Covid 19 in hospital, we would of been taking her out for high tea with family and friends. But these days nothing is open and we cannot mix socially.

So off went hubby usual route over to his mother’s house where his brother is still staying to collect all her cards, plus cards from neighbours, collected by the nextdoor neighbour. Hubby saw no one picked up the two bags of cards and goes to the hospital. Braves the eerily empty “Red Section” of the hospital and drops off cards, cake and balloons. Then comes home.

Managed to get through the afternoon

8pm we had patched things up and we went out to join the neighbours to applaud the NHS and keyworkers.

After the clap I suggest we we all sang Happy Birthday to Captain Tom Moore now a Colonel. And I started to sing it before they all disapeared… lucky they all joined in, I am no singer!

Here is why if you don’t know.

The appeal by NHS fundraiser Captain Tom Moore topped £32m as he celebrated his 100th birthday.

The war veteran, who raised the money by walking laps of his garden, has also been made an honorary colonel.

The occasion was also marked with an RAF flypast and birthday greetings from the Queen and prime minister.

With celebrations under way, Capt Tom said everyone who donated was “magnificent” as the fund reached £30m on Thursday morning.

Soldiers from The Yorkshire Regiment surprised the WW2 veteran with a guard of honour as he finished his birthday challenge Thursday morning. ( We like many others donated to the cause.)

We had a quiet evening hubby’s feeling sad that his mum was in hospital for her Birthday.

Friday 1st May.

Usual morning, up at stupid o’clock see to Ruby hubby up at sensible o’clock. He walked Ruby I did the usual jobs, when he got back he did his first priority of the day and rang the hospital. I could hear him speaking, he sounded really excited. He told me the nurses on the ward had spoken to Senior Nursing Officer she had said as a special dispensation. Hubby could go to Ivy’s 10.30am Birthday Celebration, on the ward and spend some time with her. They said they would give him proper PPE. He was off and running as I came down the stairs he said that he could go and see his mum. I managed to shout take care as she has the virus and what about the Queen’s card which had not arrived at her house yet. “Don’t worry” he shouted “I will go back with it later.” And he was gone!

I had a Pilates Zoom lesson at 10.30. am so I was kept busy. Well I wasn’t allowed to go but there are photos and videos galore! Here are few.

I had to abandon Pilates when the photos started coming in because I just got so emotional.

I did a few jobs around the house then caught up on my blogging. When hubby return we are told by the hospital that Mother in Law is still positive for Covid19 so will be in hospital for a while longer.

Hubby got home just had time for a sandwich when his brother texted to say the queen’s card had arrived. Poor hubby had to go back to his mother’s house via her ex daughter in law’s house ( to pick up a collage for MIL. ) He got the card and then on to the hospital . He also took her a Daily Mirror because there was an article in there about her because she has been buying and doing the crossword therein for eighty years. Here is the article.

So, Ivy had her birthday, an article in the Daily Mirror, a hospital video on YouTube, an online article from her school and an on line article from the hospital. The only thing she did not have was a fly past but captain Tom got that bless him and well deserved.

Oh! Yes here is the Queen’s card

When hubby got home he was exhausted. We are both tired and under stress and we definitely fell out.

Saturday 2nd May.

Today was hubby’s Birthday, he was 70 and we had had a suprise Birthday party planned for him , the weather would of been fantastic but sadly like Ivy’s it was not to be!

Hubby had lots of cards and and presents. All the boys rang and we sang happy birthday to him.

Later in the day our neighbours sang happy birthday to him too. In the evening we had a three way video with friends in Colorado and Portsmouth. That was great fun.

Time for a happy song.

No where is safe, Covid 19 has reached every part of the world. This pandemic is to my mind in no way natural but man made. Our bodies have no idea what has hit us , we just don’t know how to combat it.

Finally above I got a video of street, at the back of ours, out cheering, clapping, bashing pot lids together. Hubby took it 💜 That’s me in the shorts banging a Tupperware container. We go go out the back every Thursday and join the neighbours behind and next to us to cheer all our support and Keyworkers, drs, nurses of all types, every type of hospital workers, dustmen , posties, courriers, transport workers, supermarket workers, lorry drivers, street cleaners, emergency services, gas, electronic and water services and any that I have not thought of….. Why do we go out the back because there are no houses opposite us and we would be doing it on our own 😁.

Groundhog Day.

Friday.

Up at stupid o’clock , fed and medicate Ruby, hubby up at sensible o’clock has breakfast. Pilates was at 10.30, later in the afternoon we took Ruby for her walk, checked up on family and friends. On the Mother in Law front no news yet about the Covid19 test. Not very good communication with the nurse who was looking after her but she must be busy.

Saturday

Started as everyday, I washed my hair and had a shower, did the housework. Ten seventeen we had a zoom call with the boys, the grandchildren and the youngest’s wife it was fun.

Then we got a text to let us know that Mother in Law’s tests were back and she definitely has Covid19. She was moved to the Covid ward. Hubby rang the hospital and was told by the doctor that her symptoms were mild but all we can do is wait and see. Fingers and toes crossed.

We took Ruby for a walk in the woods it was beautiful there.

Time for a happy song now.

What day is it Anyway. Monday 20th through to Thursday 23rd April 2020

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.

Irritated

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.

That was just so moving and to honest it is just how the world is at the moment. This strange world we are living in is our new normal. I live on the flightpath to Heathrow and in the old normal world planes were passing above every few minutes.

I took the above photo to show you the clear empty sky but all I got was a photo that reflected my world back in on me, just like life at the moment. Everything has become quiet and small.

There is the empty blue sky I spoke of.

Well I must of done something Saturday afternoon, spoke to the boys, rang neighbours, walked Ruby but it escapes me.

So let’s have a happy Song.

What Day is it Anyway Friday 17th April 2020.

Let’s talk about Captain Tom Moore this brilliant very nearly one hundred year old is walking in his garden to raise money for the NHS. What an amazing feat he has achieved so far he has raised twenty two million pounds and rising. We have added our bit you can also if you wish at Just Giving Captain Tom Moore’s 100th Birthday Walk For The NHS. What an amazing man.

So usual start to the day, I had a zoom Pilates lesson with my class, I was slightly late for that ( I hear you asking, how can she be late, she is locked in how can she be late ). I needed to set Hubby up on Zoom so he could see his mother. Well I got him sorted and missed only 30 mins of the lesson. I am afraid I did not enjoy the lesson as I was worried about hubby and his mum.

The afternoon was filled with sending reports on M.I.L. We had our Zoom call it wasn’t what Hubby was hoping for. A lovely young occupational therapist called us then sent us the nessscary to join the meeting, she greeted us on zoom smiles and bubbly, she walked down the corridor then said “Give me a sec while I gown up” when she picked the iPad back up she had gown, protective glasses, gloves and a mask. Then we saw M.I.L. she looked all smiles and had absolutely no idea who we were ,or who the girl in the mask was. Sadly her speech is very muddled and she thought hubby was her father. Conversation was one sided, she kept saying, yes, lovely and forty two? But her smile was bright. We were on for about ten minutes but she seemed more intent on drinking her tea so we said goodbye. Poor hubby is so upset. Personally I think as long as she is happy that’s good. I do empathize though as my mum was lost to me about four years before she died. She had no idea who we were, or the child, she always looked trapped and scared. Thankfully M.I.L looks happy, bright eyes and smiling she seems to be liked by the staff too, for which we are very grateful at this very difficult time for the NHS.

Sadly Hubby’s family were their usual uncooperative selves. I spent the afternoon dealing with firstly a the blind lady and her partner needed me to get them a refund on some rail tickets they had bought and of course now they cannot travel. That was sorted via phone and email. Also spent two hours on a call to help sister in law set up Zoom… I think Zoom need to start paying me 😜.

Quiet evening, I think I have a cold coming plus I am beyond exhausted, Hubby’s family have really drained me.

Time for a happy song.

You know you must 🥴
I so miss them 🥴
Be safe 💜

Yes we are all hoping for a cure or a vaccine but these things do not happen overnight. Young parents must be wondering what future their children have been born into. I fear for my children and my grandchildren. The thought of being a new mum right now seems very bleak to me.

So you must if got my mornings by now, up at stupid o’clock, feed Ruby, hubby up at sensible o’clock, has breakfast. Get some jobs done, clean kitchen window inside and out and plastic surrounds on kitchen door. Extra to normal cleaning and wiping down.

Had a zoom call organised with a friend at 11.30am. Just getting ready for this when a neighbour rang with a problem. That sorted by phone. I was half an hour late for my zoom coffee date!

In the after making hubby lunch I have no recollection of what we did. We rang the hospital twice as we kept getting conflicting news the top and bottom of it is she is very confused, she thinks she is on holiday and her speech is very gabblled. I had to miss a writing sprint schedule for the afternoon due to family issues. Oh! And we drove over and dropped our middle son’s clean washing off. We put it on his doorstep and talk to him throughout the window then we get back in the car he comes out as we drive off and waves goodbye 💜

Well it was Thursday night so at 8pm we joined the neighbours, at a sensible distance to cheer and clap for the NHS and all keyworkers. I took one of my posters out and waved it about while cheering. Next week I am going to take out some saucepan lids and make a bigger noise!

So that was Thursday, our lockdown has been extended for at least another three weeks.

Let’s have a happy song.

Stay safe

So another day packed with the same things ….up sort Ruby, medicate her and feed her. Hubby and I took her out early that was a change. So after our walk I got stuck into housework hubby went shopping, this really worries me, he won’t let me go shopping as he wants to protect me. But I really want to help too, sometimes all this just makes me feel useless and without worth. Yesterday was very bad because I felt so worthless.

Hubby came home with the shopping, he had got our shopping, our son’s shopping, ( he is at risk) and a couple of bits for our neighbour. He had done a great job but I noticed that some of the use by dates were only a couple of days.. mainly on the veg.

I was stressed by this at first but then I thought what the hell , I sorted them out and blanched and then froze those that were really near to expiring. Then I moved everything in the freezer round so that I could get all the milk in. Hey just think laterally.

After a light lunch we packed up our lads shopping and drove it over to his place.We took Ruby with us too so we could sneak her in a extra walk!

We picked up the washing he had left on his doorstep, his washing machine has broken down! Typical Covid!

Got his washing out on the line, cooked dinner, shepherds pie and fried Brussel Sprouts it was delicious.

We had news about mother in law, it was good but as we would find out the next morning not at all acurate.

Time to end this mindless rant. Let’s have a happy song , because I am not feeling brave let’s have a song about being brave 💜

Be brave💜

We are all meant to stay at home and we must do, if we want to beat this virus.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE ❤️.

Easter a resurrection, life from death, a second chance, redemption.

It has been a lovely day and I really wanted to write you all a lovely and cheerful HAPPY EASTER post but sad events have over taken us this evening. My mother in law has had what looks like a stroke. An ambulance has taken to a stroke unit . We are worried because this is not a good time to have to go to hospital.

Luckily hubby’s brother has been staying with her so she was not alone when she became ill. Due to the lockdown rules we were not allowed to go over to her house, and no one was allowed to go in the ambulance with her and all we can do is wait to hear any news from the hospital.

So my dear friends please spare , a thought or a prayer for mother in law who should be 100years in a few weeks.

I was already behind with reading posts and I have had too delete some and start afresh. I hate doing that but it’s the only way I can cope right now.

I can’t concentrate right now so I wish you all well and I shall see you all tomorrow.

So tired
Be safe 💜

Self isolation choir

Self isolation can be difficult, it’s hard enough being on lock down but self isolation must be even harder. I am always amazed at the talent out there.

Up early, sorted Ruby, fed Hubby, cleaned up then took Ruby for her walk .

© willowdot21

Home, cleaned bathrooms, hung out washing, did ironing. Made hubby a coffee. Had an hour and a half video call with my best friend and we sorted the world out, from Boris to Covid19 to shopping to Covid19.

Made lunch and a video to send to a friend in Australia, then we sat in the garden and hubby hacked away at the Clamatis .

© willowdot21

We had a quiet afternoon, after dinner we skyped our friends from America where things are not good and they are also in lock down.

Then it was time to go out and cheer for our emergency services NHS and all our Keyworkers.

Well I did take a video but it will not upload to my blog but we were all out there and we made a lot of noise we get louder each week. We are so grateful. 💜💜

We must not forget that all the ills of the world have not stopped because of Covid19. There is still war and famine, refugees, women and men battered and mentally abused in their homes. Children neglected and or abused. All these things made worse by Covid19. The badness of the world has not stopped. So I am I sending out love to all and praying for those in worse positions than a lot of us.

Groundhog Day, up early, let Ruby out, feed and medicate her. I actually managed to do all the housework before hubby got up. Then he took Ruby for her walk. I did not join him because I had a Pilates class on Zoom. That was hard work and went on for an hour and a half.

While I was having my lesson hubby and Ruby returned, I was very pleased to hear hubby doing the exercise class videos we follow…well done hubby.

After Lunch I made some thank you posters for the NHS which are now displayed in our windows and one on the front door a thank you for The Postie, The Courier and Amazon.

Above are two of them but you can see all four of the on my One-Liner Wednesday here.

I did salad for dinner which lovely we both enjoyed that especially the homemade potato salad. We heard from the lads and family so we know they are all okay.

We had a quiet evening. I must apologize I am way behind in catching up on reading everyone’s amazing post but I promise I will get there 💜 I am also behind on blog posts. I still have Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge, and Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka to do yet!

I forgot to say yesterday we drove over to our sons again yesterday this time with is medicine. …how could I forget that it was a change from our usual lock down routine.

Well it’s late and I need my bed so sending you all love it’s time for a happy song.

Woohoo 💜
Be safe.
