Not an ordinary week for anyone anywhere and now the Eurovision Song Contest has been cancelled - what shall we do!! and Eastenders stopping recording - that will upset some people - but not me....I've never watched an episode right through and the odd bits I've seen just made me feel very depressed.....it's not a fun programme is it?
On Tuesday DiL had a trip to hospital for a short appointment. Originally I was going to go with her and look after Willow and Arthur there. But we decided it was safer and easier for me to look after them here. Last time I looked after 2 children under two years old I was only 27!
Arthur woke up when they arrived at mine and was OK for a while. I got some big smiles and he is starting to make a few baby-talk noises but he was tired and really needed to be asleep. And soon he started to cry. He has a loud cry.....a VERY loud cry. I tried rocking him in his car/carry seat and laying him flat in the carry cot (DiL brought everything!) and finally pulled his hat on and popped him in his fleecy sleeping bag with another blanket and cover on top and shoved him outside in the double buggy - it's too wide to get through the back door........... and after just a few minutes of rocking him back and forward he was asleep. Phew. Me and Willow watched cbeebies - anything for a quiet life!
Yesterday I had to go to Stowmarket to the bank and braved Tesco on the outskirts of town - 9 a.m and it was busy - I think about 5 times busier than it usually is at that hour. As seen on TV ......shelves in many areas were empty but unlike what I'd heard there was no pushing or shoving and everyone was being patient in the checkout queues. There were staff doing the online shop picking - heavens knows what they do with empty shelves.
Then into town to the bank and Asda - much quieter, perhaps only twice as busy as usual. I got all I needed which wasn't a lot, the only thing not available anywhere is yeast, but I've enough left for several loaves.
I've always kept a well stocked cupboard going back to the days when we only had one car which Col used for work so we only did a supermarket shop once a month and if something I needed wasn't available it would be several weeks before I could go back again.
So as to keep blogging my posts are going to get extremely boring - the minutiae of my days! but not what I have for dinner! that would really make for dull posts.
Speaking of which............The OneSuffolk weight loss management programme which would have been week 5 out of 12 is another thing cancelled although there is going to be something available online.
This was a sight not seen recently................it's just a tractor spreading fertiliser on the field over the track but everywhere has been far too wet for farmers to get on the fields until now and judging by the depth of the tram-lines this one was leaving I reckon the fields are still very soggy.
Thanks for comment yesterday and I love the idea of an online blog quiz. The trouble is it would be far too simple to google answers!
Back Tomorrow with vegetable garden news and a fill-empty-days list - bet you can't wait!!
(I've puzzled over what labels to use for blogging during the coronavirus days and decided on STRANGE TIMES)
