Another weekend day, another day in. The weather hasn’t been as good today, the winds been a bit blowy and it’s been chiller than it has been. We started the day with breakfast sandwiches. Sausage for the boys, and sausage and egg for me and Stew. After a week of making sure that veg and fruit was in or with every meal, we decided to start the day with something naughty…..and it felt great!
We have been quite chilled today. Watched a couple of films, played some games, and then we went upstairs to have a declutter. 3 black bags of clothes for recycling later and the wardrobes and cupboards are no longer heaving with unnecessary garments that we will never wear again…. we move onto the other side of the room tomorrow. Anything, even tidying up, is welcomed when it kills a bit of time. The drag of being in every day is starting to get to me. I am willing my cough away, which seems the only thing lingering from the cold/virus that I had. If that goes then on Wednesday I can finally venture out – even if it is just a 5 minute walk to the shop and back.
Having spent a fair few hours upstairs, giving out my orders to the boys and getting rid of bags of rubbish, I came down stairs to a request for takeaway. Saturday nights are always for ordering in food and watching Saturday Night Tv. Looking on Just Eat and Ubereats was dire. There aren’t many places out there that are still delivering – so I was about to give up, but then I saw that our sushi restaurant delivered. So making the decision to cook for the boys but order for me and stew, I put an order through and it came exactly when it said it would, delivered to our door by a lady who was gloved and masked up. The food was delicious as always! I enjoyed every single bite!
The rest of the evening has been spent with the boys. I am glad that we had a clear out of things upstairs – it makes me feel like I have accomplished something from the day. All I need to start doing now is writing. I have all this time and a writing course and my own books that I want to write! I just need to start doing it!
