• Sleeping in. I’ve been struggling with this lately as our room gets so light in the mornings, so Carl suggested I try a sleep mask. It worked a treat and I felt a little bit like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Win, win!
  • Snuggling under the duvet for a while with Jesse. He’s been finding things hard this week and needing a little more TLC than usual.
  • Heading downstairs for breakfast and a big mug of tea.
  • Eating a toasted bagel topped with marmite and smashed avocado.
  • Enjoying a long, hot shower. The kind where you exfoliate, defuzz, shampoo twice and use a hair mask. I felt like a new woman.
  • Doing an online clothes shop for the kids while they played Ring Fit Adventure on the Nintendo Switch. I’ve been putting it off for as long as possible, but they’ve both grown so much since lockdown began.
  • Blow drying my hair and throwing on a bit of makeup.
  • Eating leftover pizza for lunch.
  • Curling up on the sofa to watch a movie. I’d forgotten how good the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie is.
  • Sipping a G&T and making Spring Onion and Ginger Noodles for dinner. Such a quick, easy meal. Find the recipe in East by Meera Sodha*.
  • Catching up with my parents via Zoom.
  • Changing into my PJs and lingering over my skincare routine.
  • Coaxing the kids into bed.
  • Watching back-to-back episodes of Schitt’s Creek before bed.
  • Reading and loving Where the Lost Wander by Amy Harmon* {currently free to borrow via Kindle Unlimited and only 99p to buy}.
  • Waking up slowly and dragging myself downstairs.
  • Resting on the sofa while Carl made breakfast.
  • Jumping in the shower and getting ready to face the day.
  • Wearing a full face of makeup for the first time in weeks.
  • Attempting to join a Zoom meeting with extended family. Sadly, the tech had other ideas.
  • Changing back into my PJs and working through my Sunday chores. Sorting laundry, meal planning for the week ahead and general tidying.
  • Feeling very emotional when Jesse received his leavers hoodie from school. My heart really goes out to those finishing school and university. Whatever age or level, it’s not the ending they imagined, and it must be so hard not having the chance to say goodbye.
  • Grabbing a quick lunch.
  • Pottering in the laundry room. I labelled some more storage, cleared the surfaces and just enjoyed how it looks and feels in there after all my hard work.
  • Tapping away on my laptop while the kids watch a film.
  • Looking forward to Sunday dinner. We’re having our beloved Linda McCartney Country Pies for the first time in ages as they’ve been impossible to get hold of!
  • Hoping the week ahead feels a little calmer and less stressful than the last one.
