It’s time for our weekly Project 366 update… and we are 28 weeks into 2020. Is anyone else feeling like we should just fast forward the year and be done with it? It’s the start of the Summer Holidays, although without the usual fanfare and it will certainly be different this time around. Whilst I am thinking of ways to keep occupied and make the summer awesome, here’s what we have been up to this week!
The weather was absolute pants, how is this Summer? Today was a chilled day, doing bits around the house and preparing for the new week. We had more crafting time and Liv made this gorgeous dreamcatcher, it seems the mounds of wool we have came in handy!
I am certainly enjoying the freedom of Liv being back in school, even if it is just for 2 days a week. My weekly Home Bargains and Aldi shops were hitch free and I was able to crack on with my working day.
A trip to the Post Office today and the guy infront of me in the queue asked if we should be wearing face masks. I choose to wear one when out shopping anyway, it has become natural now, though I am surprised by how few actually do wear masks. Whilst not compulsory, it is an added reassurance! Another fabulous giveaway was published today – Win a £20 Morse Toad voucher to spend on yummy chocolate!
We had a lovely walk out along the lines today and met the lovely ladies who are maintaining the Totty Snake and keeping it looking amazing. My favourite new addition:
There are now over 3,500 painted rocks and we will be contributing our own soon. There was a supply of rocks to decorate, so we collected one each and had our thinking caps on.
We have been following Karen’s lead on fun scientific experiments recently and finally got to try out our bouncy egg after a 72 hour soak in white vinegar. It didn’t smell as bad as I had been informed, maybe my nose was prepared and just clocked off. It really does work though! The egg really did bounce, however… do not assume it can drop from a greater height!
Our July GlossyBox arrived today which was exciting! I’ve written about how ‘Treat Mail’ is a great mood booster and also featured our last GlossyBox in our Favourite Subscription Boxes feature. Liv declared that today was the final home schooling day… I think she is a tad optimistic! With Primary School officially finishing for her on Tuesday, I can totally understand she wants to fully enjoy the summer holidays. Thing is, we cannot do everything we generally do. Holidays have been disrupted, as has life in general. The summer break is going to be strange and different for all this year, however I am looking forward to not being woken up by my alarm! What do you have planned over the summer holidays?
I’ve waited ages again to enjoy a black coffee from this particular mug! It’s my favourite mug to use when at Jen’s house. Whilst the skies were clear, Liv and I popped down to see Jen and her family for an outdoor coffee and catch up visit which was a great way to spend the afternoon!
That’s our week wrapped up, how has yours been?
