13th – 19th April
13th April – Easter Monday. Every day is currently like a bank holiday, but we started the day with waffles and maple syrup anyway! Laura built a paper shark (the only member of the family with the patience to do it) whilst Noah and I made slime.
14th April – Homemade pecan, walnut, crunchie + twirl ice-cream was the highlight of the day. Basically just lazed in the garden all day.
15th April – Noah wrote his weekly letter to Nanny and Poppa. Later we ventured out on a family bike ride.
16th April – Noah got his cookbook out and decided to make eggy bread. He’s getting to be a good little cook. After making enough for 6 people, he decided he didn’t like it. Lev ate 1 and I consumed the rest.
I found Laura looking a little emotional on the sofa…she was watching Captain Tom Moore complete his 100th lap of the garden- how amazing is he!
Put the tent up in the garden for the boys and Laura and I drank Prosecco (again, I know). A couple of large army planes taking off from Manchester airport, noticeable in the unusually quite sky.
Found out at least another 3 weeks of lockdown ahead of us.
17th April – Realised I don’t bother to read or watch the news anymore, just headline notifications on my watch with the latest developments.
18th April – Noah decided he’d like to make cupcakes filled with jellybeans, Laura and the boys got on this whilst I took Quorra on a 2 hour bike ride, she needed a good run! Today was the birthday of our niece and nephew, so facetime chats and a virtual disco dressed as a policeman and spider-man (the boys in case you were wondering). We enjoyed the conga, aga-doo and lots of cake!
19th April – Noah made himself a bird watching booklet and went ‘twitching’ whilst we walked Quorra. Noah predicted he was going to see a heron which we scoffed at seeing as we were walking the bike path near a main road. Obviously we then saw one…possibly even two (unless it was the same one). Easter holidays over, back to home schooling tomorrow.
