Here again guys! 🙂
Day 10! The isolation period is almost over, in a few days as long as my cough as gone (which it possibly won’t be) then I should maybe, hopefully be able to venture out on my own (wooohoooo) to join the queues to get some of my own groceries. I usually dislike food shopping, but I really can’t wait. It will be great to get a few more supplies so I can have more ideas for meals, etc.
I am not keen on this 1950’s housewife role that I have been forced to adapt to. Cooked meals every night, cleaning for the sake of cleaning, and homeschooling the children – no takeaways in sight…. does anyone else struggle to find what to make for tea each night? I am always searching for stuff to have with stuff….veg with main meals, bread with sandwich fillings, etc….it’s hard work! Our Friday evenings are usually reserved for a take-away but not tonight…..I rustled some pasta up and salad. My food cupboards and freezer are looking a bit emptier – worryingly emptier. I am not sure if anyone else is the same, but with every shop I buy extra tins and freezer bulk-buys so that there is always something in. Only problem is that this stuff rarely gets touched. So the tins of casseroles, soup, beans and pies are now being brought out to pair up with the frozen veg or rice. Those items are now getting less and less, so I am eager to get out when I can so I can pick up items to make meals with. We have been living on sandwiches, cooked meals, jacket potatoes, pasta and pizzas.
No school work for the boys today. I wanted to give them a break from all the days that they have worked hard. We read some books, got through more chapters of Grandpas Great Escape by David Williams, but otherwise we have simply played together and had fun. Today, we had a board game day. There was fortnite monopoly, Harry Potter games and shark bite! We had fun, the boys were relaxed and it felt nice spending time together and just enjoying each other’s company. As always, we took them outside to play with their scooters and balls.
I am now sat here, writing my blog whilst I watch episodes of shows that I have wanted to watch for a while now. Stranger Things, Legion, Big Bang Theory and the fantastic Friday Night Dinner
Tomorrow is the start of the weekend – we have a few things planned. All in and around the house obviously. A good declutter is on the cards. And bin bags are at the ready…
