1. No one sees what a mess my hair is, only DH, and he’s used to it.

2. Saves on petrol.

3.Lots of time to do jobs, so easy to think ‘Well, I’ll clean the oven tomorrow, this is going to last a while’.

4. Doesn’t really matter which day it is, nothing to dash out for, no church, volunteering at school, aquacise, etc. Quite pleasant to think, well this is a free day.

5. Time to sit down and read a book when I feel like it, as ‘tomorrow is another day’ and my little world is moving at a slower pace than normal.

Bradfordlass Iceland are delivering, as long as you click to say you are pension age or vulnerable. I booked yesterday, and it’s being delivered today. I was already registered with them, but don’t know if that makes a difference.

I’ve spring cleaned the house, it took 6 mornings, all the skirtings and doors, wardrobes and kitchen cupboards,we’ll be starting in the garden tomorrow. It’s helped me feel better mentally, I feel as if I can have me time now, i have a few books, and some tv lined up.
Still visiting my mum 3 times a week, taking shopping etc,trying to keep my distance in her tiny flat is a challenge, but she’s doing okay, fingers crossed.
Missing the family and our grandchildren like crazy,but it’s for the best. Think we’ll appreciate everything more when it’s over.
