Another week of not much going on. Things are still the same although thankfully covid cases locally and nationally are going down. Vaccinations are going up. Hopefully by later in the year we might be back to much more normal living.
So what’s been going on in week 5 of our Project 52.
Sunday was another chilled out weekend day. I did some crafting – some handmade felt hearts. N didn’t fancy having a go. I also caught up with some reading.
On Monday it was back to remote learning and work. N got very excited about them planning another science experiment. To our surprise, their class has the return of 2 brothers who moved away a couple of years ago. It means N’s year and therefore the class is back over capacity again. Oh well, the term it lasted was good. That’s another 2 in school rather than remote learning – 2/3 of the class are in school!
Tuesday was a busy work day. It’s planning fortnight for next year, so lots of meetings. N dug out the OH’s old Scooby Doo fancy dress costume so has been wandering around the house wearing it. It’s a bit oversized but very funny seeing him in it.
On Wednesday N started off remote learning but an hour in was struggling with his throat and not feeling too good. He just couldn’t concentrate and we decided I’d need to ring him in sick. He flaked out most of the day while I worked. My amaryllis bloomed – pretty but strange plant as there’s a 60cm stem with 4 huge flowers out of the top.
N started Thursday school again, but gave up at similar time. It seems weird ringing in to say he’s off sick, when he could just write it in the chat on Teams. I had another busy work day.
Friday N was a bit better, but his tonsils were up again. We do have some antibiotics he didn’t use from last time, but he said he got tummy ache from them, so has refused to take it. So just dosing up o Difflum spray and I’ve ordered some kids echinacea in hope that in future that will help ease the sore throat. N decided he was bored by mid afternoon and wanted to do some baking. So he looked up cookies online and made them all on his own. Well except for me cutting up the butter and chocolate. They were very well received at breaktime at the farm.
On Saturday, N was feeling much better. Still being careful what he was eating as it still hurts, but well enough to go out on the farm for a couple of hours. I did a lot of reading, watched a film and kids tv series with N, and a few house chores. It was a nice relaxing day. It’s just a shame the weekends seem to go by so fast.
