That’s another week down, I forgot what week number we were on ages ago… Groundhog Day continues! It has been another week of activities in the Sim’s Life house, which may have resulted in another cake being baked… read through our lockdown week of treats to check the cake out!
Deliveries have been a highlight of our week, with each treat mail putting big smiles on our faces! So what has arrived this week – I cannot be precise with the days I’m afraid, I’m barely trying to remember when Emmerdale is on!
An immunity supplements box arrived on Wednesday filled with lots of awesome immune boosting supplements that we all need right now! Check out the latest giveaway to win an immunity supplements box worth £39.99.
We picked up a gorgeous crochet rainbow on Thursday, made by Sarah’s (book hamper lady) friend to hang from our window just in time for the Big Clap! I love how our local community it coming together to produce such wonderful crafts with proceeds donated to local causes. It has made me want to pick up my half finished crochet blanket and finally finish it! Lockdown really has made me want to craft more, such a relaxing pastime, which leads me onto…
Our new bundle of material and elastic arrived to continue making face masks for added reassurance when venturing outside after lockdown. My sewing is starting to improve somewhat so at least the masks aren’t as wonky!
I ordered a GlossyBox treat for Liv last month, knowing a box filled with make-up goodies would cheer my little tween lady up. It really did put a huge grin on her face, especially the lip balm and eye shadow pallet which has been added to her growing collection. I managed to bag the hair mask, scalp treatment which will come in handy! At this point, I’ve washed my hair 3 times during lockdown!
Liv couldn’t wait to make another lockdown cake on Saturday and was excited when she found more cake toppers to decorate our latest bake. Hat’s off to Betty Crocker cake mixes and pots of icing, they have proved to be invaluable the past few weeks!
We even ventureed the furthest we have been since lockdown came in on Thursday… trip to the petrol station, it really was like a grand day out! Taking no chances, I was the only one decked out with a face mask and gloves, but there were only two other cars there fortunately. Such a mundane weekly task that just came naturally turned into a mission and a half! The saving grace was the fact petrol was finally under a £1 per litre… and we cannot even travel anywhere!
Days have been spent working and homeschooling, walking and completing chores around the house, so treat mail has really cheered us up and put smiles on our faces this week. The sun many not have been shining as much as we would have hoped, however we are totally ready for the heatwave due next week.
