How are we 21 weeks through 2020 already? It feels like we have been under house arrest for half that time already… oh… that’s because we pretty much have been! Days are still passing by in a blur, normally I would be grateful of a Bank Holiday Monday, but will we actually realise it is an official ‘day off’?
This week though has been lovely, stressful, tiring, fun and everything else rolled into one, but what have we been up to?
Project 366 Week 21
We start mornings off working hard so that we can relax and do fun activities in the afternoon, however I do find I get more work done during the evenings when I have peace and quiet! I never realised how many jigsaws we have, so decided to start with an easy-ish jigsaw during afternoon downtime.
More work in the mornings for the pair of us with a lovely walk in the afternoon for some fresh air. I cracked on with making another face mask in the evening whilst watching tv, I’ve found needlework becomes more enjoyable the more you do it! Chats with friends, including the lovely Karen from Missing Sleep are helping to relieve the lockdown gloom, especially as she rambles as much as I do! 🙂 x
Oh. My. Days! The weather was beyond glorious today! I decided to mow the lawns so that we could enjoy some garden (and tanning) time in the afternoon. After a few days of gloomy weather, I wanted us to make the most of the gorgeous weather and top up our Vitamin D tanks… that we most certainly did! Lenny Kravitz was the music choice du jour as I mowed the lawns singing along! With my earphones in, I cannot hear anything, which meant I seranaded a postman who was stood behind me without realising! Whoops!
I’ve been back on the Keto train this week, it’s always easier during the warmer weather as meals tend to be lighter. Today we both enjoyed steak and salad for dinner and I made homemade egg mayo… so glad this is Keto friendly! We were a few seconds late for the clap this evening, when I checked the clock it was 7.45pm, the next minute we heard commotion outside, quickly realising it was 8pm we rushed out to join in.
Emmerdale is a guilty pleasure of ours and a nice way to round off the week, we all need a Cain Dingle fix! It was blowing a gale outside with trees bending backwards! A definite turnaround from the weather on Wednesday, so we decided to work on a new jigsaw, this time a 500 piece puzzle. I featured a round up of the amazing boxed treats we have been putting to the test lately, check out our favourite subscription boxes for lockdown treats.
Selling Sunset series 2 landed on Netflix today, it is cringeworthy, super catty but totally binge watch worthy. Make sure you have popcorn at the ready – Season 3 will be released in August!
So the jigsaw is still going… 😉
We will get there in the end and then move onto another! Today was a total sloth day, apart from a quick trip to the local village butchers to stock up. It was the first time I have properly walked into a shop for weeks and it felt totally alien. It was great to see familiar faces again, but it did make me realise how different life is now and how it will continue to be for some time.
How has your week been? Have you done anything exciting* this week?
