It’s another day, another Project 52. And the first full week of the summer holidays. Here’s what we got up to for week 30 of the year.
Sunday we didn’t do much. N felt better today after his tonsils came up on Saturday. Mucked around in the garden and lazed around. We went to one of the sister in law’s for dinner as it was my mother in law’s birthday. Totally against social distancing rules as it was 3 households (if you count us as being the same as the farm), and 15 of us. All outside though, and it was so nice to actually talk to both sister in laws and the nephews and my goddaughter, as I’ve not seen them to speak to since March.
Monday it was the first day of work with no home schooling. N basically mooched most of the day as he didn’t feel well again. His right tonsil was up with white spots and he was really tired. Usually when I work during school holidays, N’ll be out on the farm all day, but with me at home he knew he could pick and choose. Next week I’ll have to start putting a ban on the laptop/farming simulator to get him doing stuff.
On Tuesday, we had a Doctor’s phone appointment again for N’s tonsillitis.They called me back after the end of surgery, so the dispensary was shut at our surgery. We had to go to the partner surgery to pick it up. 20 minute journey to find that they didn’t have any of it in, and we’d have to come back the next day. The doctor prescribed a different penicillin as ENT doctors quite often ask you to try that before having a consultation. N’s appointment is next week so it was worth trying the new one to make sure we didn’t have to then wait longer to try this one later.
Wednesday we had to head back to the surgery again. It was a bit of a wait as they had to make N’s prescription up, and the person who they jumped ahead was picking up numerous prescriptions for about 4 people. N prefered this medicine, but I think it’s been making him a bit hyper.
On Thursday not much happened. N layered up the leftovers to make the lasagne. He rarely makes a full meal, just dips into do the parts he likes doing.
Friday was a short work day or me. N went out on the farm for a bit. I finished my puzzle, we had an early tea leaving the OH’s for him to have later while we were at tennis. Tennis has been going well, with only 3 in the group. We just need to have a consistent coach. Serving was a bit of a disaster, but hopefully practising weekly will help again though. The other 2 boys were exhausted which was frustrating for N and for me (given I’m paying for 1 1/2 hours of tennis, not them sitting around).
On Saturday, my day was meant to be starting with a visit to Stowe. But yet again the weather was due to rain right at the time I was there. Showers at home but due more rain there. Added to that I had a headache, and N was refusing to come. I tried to cancel my slow but it seems harder than it should be. So a day at home, and my headache was gone by mid afternoon.
This week’s photo is on our random spring onions. I planted seeds last year in the garden wall, but they were a bit rubbish as didn’t get enough water. This year, I’ve done nothing with them. Obviously we’ve had more rain, and this year we’ve had this huge one. The green leaves are a bit rubbish, but mammoth bulbs. Next year I’ll have to make an effort and actually grow something intentionally.
