Another week of mostly being inside.

Hanging in our backyard

We try to go out for walks, but Naomi hates being restrained in her buggy. So instead, we set her free outside. She loves going out. She’ll point at her shoes then start heading to the door. She’s starting to stand more and more which is pretty exciting!

More Baking

Made some apple crumble but didn’t take any pictures.

Chocolate chip cookies, using a different recipe which made them more softer and chewier.

Coffee cake, using a really easy and simple recipe I found online.

30 Days of Songs Challenge

I saw an old blogging friend Jasmin post this on her story. I don’t know if she’s still doing it, but I thought it sounded fun, and for no reason, I’m keeping up with it.

Here are the songs I’ve done for each day so far.

Day 1 – A song you like with a colour in the title

Self-explanatory. I was going back and forth between this and that blue da ba dee song. But I like Lorde better.

Day 2Β – A song you like with a number in the title

Again, self-explanatory. There are a million songs with a number in the title, but I was listening to this most recently so it was fresh in my head.

Day 3Β – A song that reminds you of summertime

This song was a big summer hit in 2016 I think. And it has just stuck with me, it’s so damn catchy. Who doesn’t sing along to the whole chorus??

Day 4 – A song that reminds you of someone you’d rather forget

I couldn’t think of a person that I’d want to forget. So I spun this prompt and thought of 10 year old me and my friends doing a choreographed dance routine we made up to this song…in front of the whole school. I’ve blacked out most of the memory, but I still cringe about it.

Day 5Β – A song that needs to be played loud

I have loved this song since it first released. I have also got Naomi hooked on it which is great. This has to be played loud, because I like to sing along with it but I do not have Idina’s range, so if it’s loud enough, I can’t hear my voice crack.

Staying Social while Distancing

Had our first zoom work meeting last monday. That was nice to see everyone. Also called a few of the families from work, just to catch up and see how they were doing.

Skyped with a few friends I hadn’t seen in a while. We sometimes don’t talk for ages cause we all get busy with life, so what perfect time than now to catch up.

Played games online with my siblings, and had our weekly skype catch up with the parents too.

Keeping Busy

More of the weekly cleaning, as things get messier faster since we’re home all the time.

Have managed to keep up with my 30 days of yoga still which is good!

Tried that whipped coffee thing that’s been circulating online. The first time, I mixed it just for a while so it didn’t really work. The second time I used my electric beater for around 10 minutes and it worked really nice. It tastes like a really sweet coffee which I prefer.

Went out to do the weekly grocery shop as Rory went last week. I haven’t been since all the new precautions have been put in place. They only allow a certain number ofΒ  people in at once,Β  so there’s a line outside. They have cones set out that you stand next to, so we keep our distance. Also inside, there’s lots of signs about limits on products, reminders to wash your hands and all that. It was really nice to get out and drive to the store I have to say. I miss the daily drives to and from work, and just the daily grind in general.

Making progress this past week on my big cross stitch project that I’ve been doing for over 2 years now.

Playing games, reading books and occasionally fretting about the reality of our current situation.

What have you guys been up to this past week?

Angela.

  2. Into the Unknown is such a sing out loud song! I wanted to do the challenge too but my IG on my blog account doesn’t have the music function for whatever reason so it’s a bit pointless XD

    1. It really is! That’s funny that it doesn’t have the music function. Mine was hiding in the sticker section of my story, took me a while to find, so maybe it’s hiding on yours too? 😊

    1. We’ve been very lucky that the warm weather has been sticking around for us. It’s normally gone by mid March. It’s a bit of a shame we can’t go out too much but at least we have our little backyard 😊
      Hope you’re doing well too ❀️

    1. Ha, yes that is Shadow! She’s lying on the stump of a tree we cut down years ago. It’s her favourite spot to just sunbathe on.
      We feel very lucky to have a backyard, as whenever we try to head out for walks with Naomi in the buggy she gets very upset lol.
      It’s good to find ways to stay busy and entertained πŸ˜€

      1. so cute πŸ˜€ haha my brother’s dog likes to sunbathe too while staring at the fence from our porch to watch out for stray cats x) she doesn’t like cats at all, lol. Too bad, I really wanted one too.
        Well as she gets older , she’ll make great use of the backyard then. I wish my kiddo had one because he needs to burn a lot of energy.
