• Sleeping late.
  • Lying in bed and listening to the rain outside.
  • Discovering Carl and Jesse downstairs on the Xbox.
  • Sipping tea on the sofa while Carl cooked breakfast.
  • Tucking into veggie sausages, hash browns and baked beans.
  • Working my way through a mountain of laundry.
  • Watching Carl drill holes in the laundry room to hang various hooks and organisers.
  • Admiring my new Brabantia Iron Store and getting very excited about my new pegboard.
  • Eating a fish finger salad wrap for lunch.
  • Grabbing a quick shower.
  • Listening to Lizzo while I pulled on clean clothes.
  • Playing Just One* with friends via Zoom.
  • Missing our regular in-person board game nights.
  • Sipping a G&T while I made dinner.
  • Eating honey, soy and ginger braised tofu. You can find the recipe in East* by Meera Sodha.
  • Catching up with my parents.
  • Taking Jesse upstairs to bed.
  • Watching another episode of The Imagineering Story with Izzy. It’s a documentary about the history and creation of the various Walt Disney parks around the world. We love daydreaming about taking a trip to one of them once we’re all able to travel again.
  • Laughing through an episode of Schitt’s Creek before heading upstairs to bed.
  • Feeling awful after a terrible night’s sleep.
  • Drinking lots of tea.
  • Deciding to stay in my PJs all day.
  • Organising our tools and paintbrushes on to the new pegboard.
  • Eating a toasted bagel for breakfast.
  • Hanging wet washing outside in the sun.
  • Making beds and putting clean laundry away.
  • Feeling a little out of sorts.
  • Working through more of my DIY to-do list in the laundry room.
  • Wolfing down a big bowl of pasta.
  • Popping up a handy ‘broom grip* to hold my mop.
  • Helping Izzy make chocolate brownies.
  • Watching Carl surprise the kids with a Nintendo Switch and Ringfit Adventure. I wasn’t really onboard with the idea of getting another console but having watched them play with it all afternoon I can see it’s going to be very useful for indoor exercise during lockdown.
  • Pulling out my laptop to work on this post.
  • Looking forward to cooking and eating veggie sausage hotpot for dinner {adapted from this Hairy Biker’s recipe}.
  • Needing an early night.
