It hardly seems a year since Jacob's traumatic entrance into the world.
2020 hasn't been the best year for anyone and Jacob has missed out on all the baby classes, swimming and socializing with other babies because of all the Covid restrictions, but despite that, he is a very happy contented baby. Even though he didn't get chance to meet lots of people and other babies he has taken really well to nursery and goes with no fuss or bother.
I know he doesn't know it's his birthday but It's a shame he couldn't have a little party with his cousins and the rest of the family today.
I had to pop into town for cat food today, I was expecting it to be busy but it was fairly quiet considering how close we are to Christmas. I will do my supermarket shop tomorrow, I don't need much as I've been putting extras into my shopping for weeks and no one will be coming round, I do have to get shopping for Stevie and Darren though as they couldn't get an online slot this late, I'll drop theirs off doing a 'knock door run', lol . Mum also needs a few extra bits as none of us will be venturing to the shops unless we have to.
Each year I buy a metal tin and empty my purse every Thursday of whatever money is left from the previous weeks shop, (except for copper now).
I didn't expect there to be a lot this year because when the plague started I reverted to paying by card for everything but when I opened it this morning as was pleasantly surprised to find that there was £167.53. Not bad considering. This will be more than enough to buy some extras this week, anything I have left will go into the new tin for next year, (which I've already bought because they seem to be hard to get hold of come January and I'm trying to be super organized 😇).
Can you believe there are only three more days of advents left!
Take care, see you tomorrow
