It’s week 5 of the year, and the week ended with 14C warmth, so warm it was too hot in my coat. Here’s our Project 52 for this week.
Sunday – binge watched quite a few Traitors Australia episodes. I’m loving it now I’ve got into them. Didn’t do much otherwise, some puzzle, some reading, some sorting out a few bits from my work corner.
Monday – we’re a Covid free house again. I was really tired most of the day. N somehow got a mistaken identity, with a school detention for being removed from class. Except he wasn’t, so I’ve checked via another parent, and a an email has gone to school. They’d better remove that from his class charts, and he definitely won’t be attending it. I’m sure the head of year will know straight away that’s not very N.
Tuesday – school had Ofsted in. I made a start clearing out my jigsaws. It takes too long to sell them on, and I sold a bulk of them a while back, so the rest can just go to the charity shop.
Wednesday – started to declutter my remaining jigsaws that I’ve finished with. I need to dig them all out from under the bed, but I reckon that’ll be 20 gone. I can’t be bothered to spend time trying to sell those so will just charity shop them at the weekend. It was HPV vaccination at school. N said it hurt more than the covid jabs, but only for a few seconds.
Thursday – the ‘detention’ was sorted, although the teacher insisted that N standing there, wasn’t N. It really was mistaken identity. My free Samsung earbuds arrived that were one of the offers when I bought my mobile phone. Now I’ve just got to keep them charged for when I need them. Just waiting for the cashback to arrive now.
Friday – didn’t have to demist the car this morning after getting in it like yesterday. That’s the only annoying thing about my new car. It mists up way too easily, and then takes forever to demist. Work was a short day. It was pretty cold at N’s tennis, colder than expected. We ended up making 3 different sausage meals for tea. The OH will only eat sausage and mash, I was doing sausage and bean cassoulet for me, and N decided he wanted toad in the hole. So he made the latter – his first ‘yorkshire pudding’ type batter.
Saturday – second Saturday with no football, so I could get everything done I needed to. Went to get threading done, visited the farm shop, bakery market stall, picked up some nice desk and cupboard organisers from Primark’s new homeware range, dropped parcels off at 2 parcelshops, did charity shop drop off, and got petrol. Then a relaxing afternoon before we’re due to go out for a friend’s birthday meal.
Things I’ve enjoyed:
- Australian Traitors. I binged it, loved it.
- Giant cookies baked by N
- A free Saturday to get all the things done I needed to
Things I’m grateful for:
- OH is Covid clear.
- My free earbuds – and they fit nicely in my ears.
- Being able to declutter lots of puzzles and clothes to the charity shop.
