A catch up with what has happened over the last few months, and then will write up this weeks post tomorrow.
Spud has settled into Nursery she started in August. She is now talking to people which for her is a massive achievement.
Ziggy has settled back in and is using her hours with in two different nurseries, one of them an outdoor one. The gruesome twosome are back at school, Minky struggling with the new covid regulations as he is not a sit on your bum in one place type of child unless he is engrossed in something like Lego.
Fifi has started her college course, not quite what she thought she was signing up for as they are doing it on line not hands on but she is sticking with it.
Went out blackberry and apple picking with the four local grandchildren one day, all socially distanced of course and still see them backwards and forwards.
|picking up apples |
|My daughter with her dog that I made for her 40th birthday|
|a walk round a local attraction - An A frame from the mining days |
|a make shift bathroom door while it was being renovated - directly opposite my front door so not a good place to be sitting if the door knocks. |
|full moon, half moon, total eclipse - 30 for £1|
|Roo is finally mobile |
|and had no fear of climbing high|
|Ziggy just loves the swings and would spend all day in them |
|that is not suppose to be a pond, just full of rain water, a few children fell in while we were there |
DD2 came down from Oban for a long weekend, hummed and hawed over coming as it new lock down rules had been implemented in the central belt of Scotland but we were told don't make new plans but keep existing ones, and so the caravan park would not refund her money so she came. Was lovely to see them and all the cousins had fun meeting up and playing outside.
Loving the me time my bike is giving me, I rarely set off anywhere with a destination in mind unless I am meeting somebody but just point the bike and go and then wonder what is down this road and just head off.
Workwise - it was decided that face masks were now needed in no clinical areas where you cannot social distance, so that now also means the kitchen. As I have previously been through the procedures that are in place to protect people like me that cannot wear the masks then I have been given the face shields that you see in shops and have to wear it when I move from my designated area in the kitchen. I can live with this and is working fine. Feeling settled in there now and accepting it as an alternative for as long as it takes.
Been doing various crafting knits and crochet items and taking orders from family for items they would like. Finished off my cross stitching project, it is a lap quilt so just needs the quilting bit done but my tension is out on my sewing machine so I need to spend some time sorting it and getting it right.
That is about as exciting as it has got I am afraid.
