Back for another recap of what went down this past week. Not a whole lot really. Spent most of it playing Animal Crossing. I’m so hooked.

Animal Crossing New Leaf


Like I said, this is most of what I’ve been doing. I don’t have any photos to share, so I’ve attached some of the ones I’ve sent to my sister, along with my strange grammar. I’m having so much fun being mayor, shaking trees, fishing, planting, catching bugs and trying to figure out this turnip business.


To the surprise of no one, I’ve been doing more baking. Once I run out of one batch, I make another. I may have a problem. Made Anzac biscuits, and more hokey pokey biscuits. I’m also thinking of making a feijoa cake down the line cause we have heaps.

Outside Time

Despite my game addiction, we still also get outside most days. This past week had lots of nicer days, so we took advantage and headed out. Even if it’s just in the backyard. Fresh air does wonders for clearing your head.

Getting Creative

I made homemade paint. It’s basically equal parts flour salt and water. Then add food colouring. Since Naomi is 1, she basically ate it straight away. It may be the saltiest thing she ever ate as she immediately started spitting everywhere then crying. She did this multiple times before we gave up on the endeavour.


I’ve always liked trying origami. Half the time it works, the other half I give up. I found a youtube clip to make an origami lotus and decided to give it a go. I’m pretty happy with how it came out!

Keeping Busy

As always we stay at home unless we’re out for walks, or I go to the supermarket for our weekly shop. Naomi now loves playing with the camera on my phone. I find it hilarious to hit record to see what she does. I share a lot of these on Instagram now. Even though Naomi comes with me at work, it’s nice being able to have so much one on one time with her during this lockdown.

Slower progress on my cross stitch. You can see more flowers appearing around. I want to do more on it, but I keep getting distracted.

Another two weeks of mostly being at home. But restrictions around takeaways and online shopping are mostly back to normal, so I’m excited for that. Hopefully NZ can continue keeping our numbers low and we can slowly get back to ‘normal’. Till then, we’ll just hang at home.

Stay safe all.

    1. You can find homemade recipes for most thing on the internet, its pretty handy at the moment! Feijoa is a fruit, it’s similar to kiwifruit, but less sweet and more tangy. I think it only grows on this side of the world.


  1. That is such a great idea about paint, especially where kiddos do put it in their mouths! All your treats look so yummy and your lotus came out beautifully! I also am getting outside every chance I get! It is so good for the soul especially right now! Sending you love and health! ❀

    1. Some days we barely do anything lol, so we try to come up with different things to do on the days we have more energy. Painting is a lot of fun! I always love doing that alongside the kids at work, but right now Naomi is still too young to do anything but eat it πŸ˜‚
