Good morning, now the sun is shining, it was cloudy an hour ago and I've not put a foot outside yet.
My name would be - well thats a good one because I was always known by my first name until I was 18 and the when I went to college I changed to my middle name as I preferred that. Poor Oh was confused as I was at school with his brother who knew me by one name and then boyfriend/husband called me something else (ok, ok yes that too). It may cause a problem in the future as the doctors have insisted on 'twisting' my name, why I don't know, it's not rocket science. I can't be bothered with another change.
Well onto today, DS has braved the supermarket for the second week to get our supplies, this week he only has one list as he did theirs and DD's as well but that has all been sorted. I'm waiting for him to come as hopefully there will be some frozen stuff and then we will be going for a walk before OH is back in the garden.
I will be back to the garret, no housework for me, yesterday was my lot for at least a -----(substitute whatever you like)
Have a good day, stay safe and well.

No body told me ----------
Washing done and dried outside, bedroom cleaned, sewing room hoovered and vacuum cleaner cleaned out - no housework, right I'm glad I've got that clear, I won't be doing any more today.
We went out on the bikes earlier, the roads are so quiet it's wonderful.
I've just had discussions with my children as to who is picking up the shopping, I never thought we'd be having these conversations and I don't want to upset either of them. Who would have thought I'd actually miss going to the 'Asdas '.
OH is still painting outside it seems to be going on for ages but keeps him happy and out of mischief ;)
I may just go back out into the garden and get some vitamin D, bye all, take care.

Good afternoon, the weather is lovely now with blue sky and sunshine and here am I stuck indoors, not that I can't go out into the garden . Himself is pressure washing outside the back door after borrowing an attachment from DD as our's has given up the ghost. DSIL took offending article back with him to clean it out so we shall see if it works when he returns it although no doubt it will have been well and truely tested before it's return. It's so odd having to do everything at a distance but at least we can smile about it.
Off to the garret that is my sewing space- bye all, stay safe.

Well it started off sunny but has now clouded over and there is a cool breeze.
We have just had  a Facetime session with littlies 1&2 and their daddy is now out of quarantine, he has to stay off work for another week - company policy, so he will help to keep them occupied.
Nothing planned for the rest of the day except perhaps a walk.

I saw this & I thought you may be interested! / Re: GBSB

Even if you hate it it's something different to all the replays. I'm looking forward to it even though I get annoyed at the lack of time for makes. ;)

Good afternoon, out earlier to collect a prescription only to find that the chemist was closed - reduced hours, so that extended the walk to go back later. I asked the doc for a double prescription so I don't have to go out but no, not quite sure why not as I'm not likely to verdose on the things I don't want to take them in the first place.
I've done very little since we got back but OH is back up his ladder.
My thoughts to all those struggling in one way or another, take care and love yourselves.

It only gives me 8 free videos  the rest are all subscribe in the sewing section - I don't think so. I too will resort to the good old fashioned way - a book.

I really like that, it's so spring-like and fresh, full of joy and hope. Well done.

Good late- afternoon, lovely and sunny with a cool breeze. Two loads of washing dried outside, wonderful.
Well the day started with a walk and a trip to the local butcher, DS gave me special dispensation to call at the butchers as he operates a one in/ one out policy with a barrier on the pavement.
Next a call to a friend -80th birthday, we would normally go out for coffee but --------, then a call to another friend. Then DD phoned - oh dear, :'( she has had to have one of her dogs put to sleep, he was a lovely animal, so gentle and he was a rescue dog, she has had him for at least 10 years and to be fair he was over 16 years old. The littlies are beside themselves, behaviour  has plummeted and daddy is still self isolating - not great. Next she phoned because the one dog she has left (this time last year she had 3) is so small that she is cold in the dog bed - have I got anything to make a bed out of util she can get something? Well we all know that things 'come in useful' so she came to collect - 1 piece of fleece, some foam, some poly wadding , 2 old cardigans and a sewing machine. I await the photo.
I've been out  for a ride on the bike - first time in 2 years, it nearly killed me, I don't know about coronavirus but trying to stay healthy isn't good for me either ;)

Happy birthday @Kwaaked

Good afternoon, sunny with a chilly wind. DS deliverd our paper this morning, he is definately of the opinion that we are not going in a shop. We went for a walk - dropped prescription request in at the docs, now does that count as 1) exercise or 2) getting medication. However we have been for a walk this afternoon to post birthday cards (one was through the letter box) so either that counts as exercise or a slapped wrist for going out twice. We saw a policeman on a quad bike - now thats a first.
Off to sew I think.
