I’m not feeling right but not entirely sure why - possibly because I swapped my HRT patch today but wasn’t wearing one for quite a few hours. I feel shaky & a bit queasy, tired ( although I haven’t slept well for a few nights so that’s understandable) plus I have hurt my leg somehow. Generally achey. DD11 has been self isolating as there was a case of Covid in her tutor group so maybe I’m psychologically ill, if that makes sense?! Anyway, trying to relax & will have an early night. I may have poured a glass of white but don’t tell anyone lol 🤣
DH working late so an easy tea of battered cod, chunky chips & baked beans. I was going to make a beef Massaman curry but missing one ingredient. Intended to hoover all through today. It’s the thought that counts! Our carpets are cheap ( everything had clearly been done on the cheap when we moved in) so they get really grotty. Can’t wait to replace them when we can afford it.

Hope you feel better soon

I'm waiting for dh to finish work then going round the gym with him to go to the jacuzzi

Probably have a glass of wine and cheese when we get back

Enjoy your wine, feel better soon Flowers
I’m in the bath (hard day!), dh is cooking dinner, ds is practising TTRockstars, dd1 isn’t home from college yet and dd2 is in bed feeling poorly.
I’m going to get out of the bath soon and light the fire and all the dc will gravitate towards me downstairs Grin
From that point on, I will only get up to eat my dinner - I’m wiped, can’t believe it’s only Tuesday Confused

We’re currently freezing, as had the old boiler and hot water tank removed today ready for the new one being fitted tomorrow, so the doors have been open most of the day and I’m just chilled through I think! Sat on the sofa with a blanket and ds is upstairs doing guitar practice. Just had dinner of sausage, beans and jacket potatoes as it was all I could face doing in a dusty, cold kitchen (plus I thought the oven might heat the place up a bit!). Contemplating hoovering, but it’ll only get in a mess again tomorrow when the plumber is traipsing through, so I probably won’t bother!

DH is bathing the girls and I should be quickly tidying the garden, freezing some pasta sauce which I batch cooked and then making a start on the kitchen but I’m on MN instead.

Not much, thank god. Everyone's out except me 😁

I'm eating soup

troppibambini · 06/10/2020 18:41

Sat on the sofa with the snoring dog..
Dd1 is upstairs hopefully doing homework
Dd2 is on the phone/iPad to her mate
Ds1 and 2 are at Thai boxing dh has gone to pick them up.
I need to find the kids wellies for the school run tomorrow as it was so muddy tonight I also need to clean their school shoes but at the moment I'm too comfy and just can't move. I also need to run a bath for the boys to jump in when they get home.

I’ve had a glass of wine. Now cooking (chicken leg, lettuce and petis pois braised in a lemon and tarragon, garlic and wine sauce, served over rice) whilst DH is relaxing after finishing work.

I had intended to do various chores today, none of which got done:

Washing bath and hand towels
Posting eBay parcels
Clearing out and reorganising my wardrobe
Listing more things on eBay

Tomorrow’s another day!

Minecraft, trumpet playing and whatever middle child is up to i cant hear it over the trumpet. Im cooling down after some cardio.......

JustDavesWife · 06/10/2020 18:49

Me and dh are just eating dinner in front of the tv (bad example to the kids I know)!! Dd 6 is watching tv after having gymnastics earlier and ds 12 is playing on Xbox (they have both eaten). Me and dh have been at home all day together as he doesn't have much work right now 😫 I'm going to finish dinner, he can tidy up and then it's pj's on and get the 6 year old into bed at 8pm. I'm going to try and not eat biscuits with my tea because I'm on a diet!!

Hope you feel better soon op Thanks

Ninkanink · 06/10/2020 19:11

Oh yes should have said hope you feel better soon!

EternalOptimist7 · 07/10/2020 00:14

Thank you folks - I didn’t get an early night but am feeling better. Just an off day methinks. Ninkanink your meal sounded delicious!
