Rinty, besides handing food back and forth with my kids...at a safe distance...we meet up outdoors on a warm enough day and take a walk "together"....at a safe distance.rinty wrote: ↑Thu Mar 26, 2020 3:39 amHi guys, we fell asleep very early so woke up tossing and turning at around 3 am. The mind works overtime at 3am !!!!
I am fretting most re DS, I don't even want to know if his ( many ) issues make him vulnerable. My mind is like hamster in a cage re him ( what if ? what if ? what if ? )
Rigid meal planning on a visable list is at least helping.
Today I am dropping " stuff " on DDs doorstep. She loves cauliflower cheese so I made up a dish for her last night. Also goodies type food for DGS ( and his Easter egg, lest the lockdown gets more fierce ) And some toys from here, so he has a change. Hard to be an only child stuck at home . At least he has a trampoline ( like yr DGD , Christmastrees I miss my grandbabies..............
Struck by the blogger Ilonas post today, which was a selection of tweets.....one was from a waste company saying their Food Waste collection ( I've mentioned we do a specific one here, in a small bin that is collected weekly as opposed to normal waste which is collected fortnightly ) has gone UP by a third
Apparently they think ( co sits even WRAPPED ) that this is the dumping of the food they bought in a panic and have never even needed. Honestly, how ridiculous. My food waste bin had peelings and egg shells, and we'd made veg stock out of those peeling first !
Its warm and sunny, perfect for the garden so that is where I shall be all day. The only major cooking today is another rice pudding to USE UP the milk, everything else is simple , not that rice pudding is HARD
Best to keep off news til this evening daily briefing for myself ( LWolfT I sympathise with your DH ) and same with the internet.
Cross stitching Christmas cards, which is enjoyable and you need to concentrate to do , so that's VERY good. Though I did think yesterday it might be nice to cross stitch some easter motifs, I had a pattern book of a US crafter from the 80s or 90s , if I can find it in my humongous selection of cross stitch/craft mags/booklets.
Anyway, love to all, thinking especially of LIn, she must be in bits x
LittleMiss, you couldn't sleep either ? (((hugs)))
Stay safe x
I know how much you worry about Tom..I wish there was a solution for that...but...he is your baby.
