Project 366 – Week 24 Another Week In Lockdown!

Project 366 - Week 24

Can you believe that at the point of publishing this post we have been in lockdown for a total of 82 days?
In some respects it has flown by, in others it has seriously dragged, but we have to keep moving forward as a change in routine is coming for us on Monday!

For now though, let’s have a recap of what Liv and I have been up to this last week for Project 366 – Week 24!


(No pictures) A day of rest… that also involved tidying up and cleaning!

Totty Snake


Homeschooling is starting to become a bit of a chore now, a true battle of minds so we took the afternoon off and went for another trek up ‘The Lines’ to see the Totty Snake.

Totty Snake Stones

It has grown immensely since last week and I have even more favourite stones to add to my image roll! It’s fabulous to see how creative some people are, all the stones tell a story for those walking by!

Painted rocks


(No pictures) As the weather is utter pants we finally cracked open the Shake Off game that has been sent for review and it was just what we needed! The game involves a lot of jumping around and running on the spot, with a real competitive edge to it. If you have been feeling slumpy during lockdown, this game will definitely have you moving… and laughing! Check out Friday’s section for details of the Shake Off Game giveaway!

Crochet Blanket


I have finally done it… well, I’m 95% of the way there! All the panels for my blanket are finished, it seems crocheting at night has been the break away from screentime that I needed and now all I need to do is fix them together… somehow.
I state ‘somehow’ as I am not entirely sure how I am going to do this, but I will figure it out!
I’ve acquired some more wool from Aldi which hopefully will be delivered soon so I can crack on with another blanket. This time however, I will make sure to make it all in one section… thus making life easier!

Lockdown flowers


A surprise box of flowers from Moonpig arrived this morning, a treat from my parents to cheer us both up and brighten the living room. I absolutely love flowers… and anything purple so this gorgeous bouquet really did put a smile on our faces! I just with the purple flowers would stop falling off!

Win a Shake Off Game


I needed to nip to the Post Office today, why is every ‘normal life’ trip seeming like a mission and a half? It was great to see everyone taking social distancing seriously (there was a queue in front of and behind me, with only 2 people allowed in at a time), however I was the only person wearing a mask!

Liv’s teacher called us today – first time since lockdown began, to discuss Liv’s return to school on Monday. Year 6 pupils will be returning for 2 days a week in little bubbles – it will certainly be interesting but I think we are definitely at the point where we need this break now!

It has been a slow work week, but I managed to feature another giveaway to Win a Shake Off Game!


Lockdown ice cream

** Update** we did go on a 5k walk up The Lines and fortunately the ice cream hut was open at the halfway point. It would have been rude not to indulge! 😉

The sun is shining and we are off out on a walk shortly, so will hopefully take some more pictures. I’m starting to get excited about the return of football next week now. Whilst Chelsea do not have a chance of lifting the Premier League trophy this season, it will be nice to finally have closure and great to finally see Liverpool have their turn. Next week will see life returning back to some sort of normal for us, so this weekend will be a relaxing one, whilst trying to arrange non-school uniform choices!

Have you all had a good week? Hope you have a fantastic weekend! 🙂

I also cannot wait for the premier league to begin next week! As a Chelsea fan I am disappointed we cannot win the league this season, but I am glad Liverpool can win it this year, they have been the best team!

Sarah MumofThree World June 13, 2020 at 6:31 pm

Your blanket looks amazing as does the ‘snake’. Would definitely have been rude not to support a local business and have an ice cream! I hope the return to school goes well. No school here until September, but we expected it would be that way for us.

Kim Carberry June 13, 2020 at 9:03 pm

Wow! 82 days in lockdown. It seems crazy. This time last year I couldn’t imagine something like this happening.
That snake really is fab and the stones are so pretty.
Well done with your blanket. Good luck with putting it together.
I hope the return to school goes well for Liv. x

Emma T June 13, 2020 at 9:35 pm

Hope the school restart goes ok. N won’t be going back til September however they work that out. Not many people in our nearest village are wearing face coverings yet. A couple of elderly people but most people haven’t other than the peeople working in the shop – but they also have perspex screens. They do say, only needed inside where you can’t social distance, so I can understand why most people aren’t. I haven’t worn one yet o the occasion I’ve been to the shop. But I’ve also not been facing anyone who might have got too close, then only the staff behind the screen. I’ve not been in our post office, so not sure how they’re set up at the moment.

Jenny @thebrickcastle June 14, 2020 at 1:50 am

I love your blanket – that really is awesome 🙂 Our school have put it back another week, but ita bit bigger than yours and not so easy to manage I think.
I thought you were going to say youd5forned a bubble with someone 😀 x

Linda Hobbis June 14, 2020 at 3:43 pm

God, it’s endless isn’t it? Who would have thought this was on the horizon at New Year! I can’t wait for some normality to return. I wish I was ‘crafty’ like you. I’d love to make a patchwork quilt or blanket.

Dani June 14, 2020 at 4:10 pm

How adorable are the painted rocks! I bet that’s a lovely walk to spy all those colourful creations… Especially if there’s ice cream waiting at the end.

Rhian westbury June 15, 2020 at 6:33 pm

I think lockdown has been going so quickly, I have no idea how we’re in mid June already, I expected this time to drag. I know what you mean about everyday things seeming like such a mission. I had to go to superdrug at the weekend and it was such a weird experience x

Rebecca Smith June 15, 2020 at 9:04 pm

That ice cream looks so good! I love those painted rocks, there is something similar in my home village and the kids love finding them.

Jen June 15, 2020 at 9:07 pm

Your blanket is going to be amazing! I love those colours. I wish I had a skill like that but I’m lacking the creativity!

chickenruby June 16, 2020 at 10:14 am

Oh dear, I’m so sorry to hear you support Chelsea, it could ruin a potential friendship lol. My husband is a Man U supporter. I support Birmingham City, through the ups and mostly downs, was looking forward to getting back to the matches, but that’ll have to wait till next year now sadly. what a lovely gift from your parents, I always feel flowers can perk a house up. Good job you had some money on you for the icecreams, unless I’m going on my weekly food shop, I never take any with me and I don’t know the last time I carried a handbag. Hope back to school goes well for your daughter

I’m loving all the painted rocks, such a lovely way to bring a smile to someone else whilst they are out and about

Emily Underworld June 18, 2020 at 3:57 pm

Ohhh your blanket looks so lovely! Those painted stones are beautiful too. It sounds like you had a great week, particularly the ice-cream!

Andale Seaworne June 19, 2020 at 7:51 am

I don’t even count anymore; I just say in lockdown from mid-March onwards. Lovely pictures and the rocks look amazing, what beautiful painting! The Simpson’s look awesome!! The blankets look amazing!! The bouquet looks beautiful and I want that ice cream now!!

Erica Hughes June 19, 2020 at 11:32 am

Lockdown is getting a bit dull now. I’ve been to a few more places this week, but social distancing and mask wearing seems a bit hit and miss. Well done on finishing the panels for your blankets.

Fozia S June 19, 2020 at 4:24 pm

I am with you on the homeschooling becoming a chore…we are not enjoying it at all. Eldest gets on with her work but youngest wants to be back at school.

Loving the blanket. I started trying to teach myself how to crochet…will have another go. The ice cream looks soo good!

Susan Mann June 19, 2020 at 5:11 pm

Your blanket looks amazing and so does the snake. I would so have bought icecream too. I hope the return to school goes well. xx

Louise (Little Hearts, Big Love) June 19, 2020 at 5:56 pm

Love all those painted rocks and the different designs on each of them – they are beautiful. The ice-cream looks yummy – I quite fancy one now after seeing your photo! Hope all went well for Liv returning to school. #project366

Galina V June 19, 2020 at 7:57 pm

Oh, that ice cream looks good, as you said, it would have been rude not to get one. Hope the return to school went smoothly. Eddie’s class/year is not going to school this academic year. The painted rocks are great fun, and such a variety of themes.
Your blanket pieces look pretty, hope to see a finished result some time soon.

loopyloulaura June 19, 2020 at 9:24 pm

I#d like to get into rock painting but haven’t worked out which paints to use or found any stones big enough. I assuming my older two won’t be in school again this year but have asked for my youngest to have a few preschool sessions if any become available #project366

Antionette Blake June 19, 2020 at 11:36 pm

Thank you for sharing your fun days at the #TrafficjamWeekend Linky Party.

Stay healthy and stay home.

Mudpie Fridays June 20, 2020 at 8:39 am

Those stones are so pretty! I still haven’t started making ours! Exciting to be going back to school we had an announcement and Monkey will not be returning this side of the holidays. Not sure if I am relieved or not, I think we are all getting to breaking point. Love the look of the blanket so far. I did try crochet once but couldn’t get on with it. Really should try again as I would love to make a blanket. Gorgeous flowers and what a nice thought.

Cheryl Pasquier June 20, 2020 at 9:54 am

Oooh going back to school is a weird one to deal with. Pierre went back a few weeks ago for two days a week, but as of Monday, it’s back to full time (four days a week). He’s not overly happy but there’s only two weeks to go ! Lovely to see you got out for a walk … and ice cream, yay ! Still loving the stones – have you made any to add ?

Karen Langridge June 21, 2020 at 10:58 pm

I love that Simpsons rock! We added a rock to our snake this week, but its only teeny in comparison! I felt a bit sorry for it so I think we might need to add more. That snake is getting so long. That ice cream looks so good and indulgent, well earnt on your walk! The flowers from your parents are really beautiful, so lovely to get some happy post! x

chickenruby June 25, 2020 at 10:02 pm

As I’ve already commented on this post as project366 i’ll pop over and take a look at some of the others for my #pocolo comment this week

Stephanie 139a June 25, 2020 at 11:15 pm

Hope the back to school went ok – thanks for joining us at #PoCoLo
