What Was in Your Diary?

How many things in your diary have you crossed out in the last 8/9 weeks?

I've missed
First day of shutdown BiL was supposed to come and cut wood
The Surrey Family visiting at Easter and the family Egg Hunt and Easter tea
All the visits to the two Suffolk families
All the rest of the 12 week OneLifeSuffolk Weight Management course (A Lost Cause!)
Polly going to the vet for her annual flu jab
A couple of jumble sales
4 WI meetings so far
2 Library Van visits
Birthday outing
Dentist (only delaying the fear!)
Going to visit a windmill on National Mills Day 
Several lots of swimming

AND lots of Car Boot Sales

And this week I was supposed to being watching the 3½ year old granddaughter  at a little ballet show.


Ho Hum!
 
I've ground to a halt on things to write about so I'll have a few days off to peruse my books for ideas and enjoy the warm days we are forecast to get here .

Back in a day or 3

Sue

      Your list is much more interesting than mine!

    1. It's the grandchildren that is the biggest gap in the diary and even more so for you and your first one I should think

  3. The main ones for us were visits to Cornwall and the Midlands to see my siblings, husband's daughter was supposed to be coming to stay, and a couple of consultants appointments for us both, had to be done on the phone instead, which was a bit frustrating. And husband's prostate operation has been postponed until next year.

  5. Dental appointment, hair cut, meeting with friends in Derbyshire early April, a short break for wedding anniversary end of April and a birthday get together with other friends over the last weekend - we zoomed for a chat and birthday wishes. It is hard to know what to write about at the moment, I creeping up to a halt too:)

    1. I shall resort to Saints from the Saints book and garden pictures I think

  6. Grand-daughters third birthday party, grandparents 'duties' two days a week, mother's day meal at our daughters, chiropodist, dentist, optician and mobile hairdresser appointments shopping with husband, mooching around our garden centre for craft stuff (on-line isn't the same).

    Blogging is like having a full time job isn't it? Have a relaxing and enjoyable time off.

    1. Sometimes a few days off blogging gives me time to think of something to write about

  7. Many courses, one holiday, and visits to the hairdressers.

  8. Certainly like Rachel - the hairdresser! Otherwise, with almost daily Zoom visits with various friends, I have missed very little, just adapted.

    1. I've missed hearing about your delicious meals out

  9. Mine include: putting our house on the market, living in the Van, 2 hairdressers appointments (I have a blonde mop that is about to be dyed back to it's natural brown), walking with the dogs, the sea, seeing my Mum every Wednesday in Manchester and selling at the first 2 car boot sales of the year to empty out our shed ready for moving.

    But I've gained too: time to slow things down, growing in the net tunnel for the last time here in Wales and lazy afternoon movie watching ... oh and 4 pounds in weight :-)

    1. Getting the house on the market must be the most frustrating and with so many houses for sale in Wales already, you needed people to see it in summer.Perhaps Wales will be unlocked soon

      Delete
    2. We've just heard from our estate agent, seemingly things could be moving again in 2-3 weeks here in Wales. Estate agents are back at work in some parts of England already, my son who was in the process of buying a house told me last week.

      Luckily with the intervening few weeks since the photos were taken and lots more work by us the place is looking even better now. We viewed it ourselves when it was green and lush back in July of 2013 so it could be about to happen the same way again :-)

  10. Too many events to count!

  11. I can't imagine when swimming pools will open again, nor being very keen to go when they do. The cycling substitute might become permanent. Don't really fancy it much in winter, but then it's not very appealing going to the pool some days. Will have to make the effort just the same.

    1. I will be glad to get back to swimming, the pool is always quiet and low risk here in Suffolk

  15. Today I would have been at Hava Java - coffee social with friends. Tomorrow would have been tennis in the morning and Bridge in the afternoon. We are having a Zoom meetup instead of Bridge.

    1. Zoom meetings are OK but not quite the same are they.

  16. We've missed a few things over the weeks as well. Nothing of any great importance but in a way it's just the normal weekly things we normally do that have hit home most.

    Enjoy the blogging break and the good weather. I'm sure you'll come back refreshed and full of things to write about again. xx

    1. Writing a list makes things more depressing - I don't think I should have started this

  18. We've missed quite a few things, for me the worse one was we were due to go down to Wales for the week to see no. 1 son, I know he is ok as he phones about twice a week and we chat for about an hour, but as you say not quite the same. Hubby had his birthday in lockdown and we were due visitors, his mum etc. Visiting my cousin, we only got back to seeing each other last year, through me doing our family tree, she has lived in the same street as she lived as a child, I just didn't know she was still there. Thankfully hubby still has his hospital appointment each month for his injection, which we are grateful for. Helen S.

  19. Mine were my daughter's bridal shower and wedding, two granddaughters dance recital, another granddaughter's confirmation, the same granddaughters play and band musicals. Countless softball games and not being with family.

  20. First time commenting! So far we have missed a family celebration for my husband's 70th birthday, and also his "big birthday" gift - a once in a lifetime holiday cruising the Norwegian fjords! Also celebrating St. Patrick's Day, Mother's Day, Easter, my birthday and our daughter's birthday. But the worst of all is missing our grandchildren. Roll on 8th June when we will be allowed travel 20km to visit them - socially distancing of course!

  22. Hi hun, Grandbabies 17th, 9th and 9th Birthdays and monthly visits to family. We booked to go away for the weekend in a large house in Kings lynn (twin daughters, son-in-laws, 6 grandbabies and one of my best friends and her son). We were going to celebrate hubbies 70th Birthday for the weekend of June 12th but due to quarantine will get a refund shortly. But,at the moment I would be more than happy just to visit them.*hugs* Goldensunflower.
