Evening all, so sorry for my tardiness but we have had no internet since Tuesday, I honestly wasn't sure if I'd managed to get this post on if I'm honest, but without further ado it is time for
So like lots of places around the world we are now on lock down, we are able to shop for food and medicines and go for some exercise which for us is taking shape in a daily walk from our house in a circular route of around 2 miles, so as you can imagine it has been a little on the quiet.
However here are a few of the silver linings and positive moments from the week.
Being stuck at home meant that I could put together a homemade scrapbook kit which last weekend looked like this.
Hubby on the other hand decided it was baking time again, I'm not sure this is a good idea for my waistline if I'm honest, but it always tastes so nom!
Saturday's walk saw some blue skies so I stopped quickly to take this photo
On our walk we've seen lots of properties with rainbows drawn by children in the window, to help when families go out for a walk with children, it's a way of keeping them amused and has definitely raised a smile for me.
The scrapbook kit mentioned earlier resulted in the following
In the meantime hubby despite his silversmithing course being currently suspended managed to continue his studies
And I carried on scrapbooking
Sunday saw it a little cloudier
But we did enjoy a fire in the evening
Said 19 year old brought me these for Mother's day
I really wanted to see my Mum but obviously was concerned about the virus, at this point we were still not on full lock down. I made her a card after I'd used anti-bacterial spray on my workstation, I also wore latex gloves to make it. We went over on Sunday, we took our own chairs, flask and cups and set up in the garden well away from her, so we could at least have a catch up which was fabulous!
It seemed odd not giving her a hug, but if this keeps her safe then I'm absolute fine with that!
The issues with the lack of internet have proved incredibly testing given that both me and hubby are key workers and with his underlying health conditions he needs to work from home. However, the silver lining is that we've crafted more, enjoyed some DVD's we haven't watched in a while and have thoroughly enjoyed catching up with everyone since we got back online today!
I hope you've all had a good week and are managing wherever you are to stay safe whilst still enjoying some positives in life.
Mr Linky for those that fancy joining in
