Although we've been spending a lot of time with family, we're all double vaccinated, son and DIL test regularly due to their jobs and we LFT at least weekly. We also don't hug and we spend as much time outside as possible. When they stay over, we have two ensuite bedrooms and a separate bathroom so it's easier to maintain hygiene and social distancing.
After hitting a badger on Friday night, I asked in the local facebook group for assistance getting repairs for the car. Most made stupid jokes, a few offered recommendations and one woman decided to go on about the poor animal lying in a ditch that I failed to rescue. Having pointed out I was a lone female, at dusk, on a country lane with fast moving traffic and that I did turn round when I could and drove back, I was scolded for not rescuing a potentially dangerous and aggressive animal.
275 Up early to take the car to the garage for an assessment. it can all be repaired but will be several hundred pounds. Need a new light fitting and the crack in the bumper needs welding and re spraying. Did some food shopping, walked the dog in the rain, did some more Christmas and Halloween crafts and chilled out watching TV and blogging in between helping Peter with the headboard he's making.
276 Facebook down, but that's all I can remember about the day.
277 Took Bob for a walk and found a dog friendly cafe doing Gluten Free food so we stopped for lunch. Moved the cacti into the bathroom for the winter.
278 Off to Gloucester to visit child 1 for the day.
279 Peter's birthday. We caught the train to Worcester, watched No Time To Die, had a meal out and a few drinks, some shopping and train home.
280 Coffee in Monmouth, a picnic in the woods and a visit to see child 2, his wife and our grandchild.
281 A day at home, tided up the craft room after finish my Christmas sleigh and did some gardening.
