Hello, here we are again! I have a great read coming up for you, including more snail eggs, more socially-distanced socialising, a new TV series addiction, and one completed project! Hold onto your hats, we're in for quite a ride.
Day 57 (Tuesday 19th May) - whilst Ed went running I got my ingredients ready to make a yum bread recipe I saw on TV last week (here's the link), fed my snails, and found A THIRD clutch of eggs! Then we ate pancakes and watched the news. Spent most of the morning making bread, put my succulents outside for some fresh air and attacked some mealybugs (my nemesis). Ate some hot bread for lunch and watched Outback Opal Hunters (quality show). Did my week 8 blog post, recorded worship with Ed, and our John Lewis wedding present delivery arrived! Later on I brought my plants back inside, we had lamb chops for tea, then Ed and I went for a walk and saw 12 cats! We watched the first 2 episodes of Christopher Eccleston Doctor Who (the memories!!!).

Day 58 (Wednesday 20th) - went for a run, prayed with Ed, brekkie and Doctor Who, went to the house to drop off the wedding things, came home for lunch and watched more Doctor Who. Did some drawing, then some newspaper puzzles, knitted, watched Pointless, then had dinner followed by dad's homemade rice pudding! House group zoom, followed by Doctor Who (the addiction has begun).
|The only photo I took today was of a dead mouse on my run. Sorry!|
Day 59 (Thursday 21st) - chilled morning, breakfast and The Great British Sewing Bee, knitting, repotting, fed the snails, worked on my blanket. Lunch and Doctor Who. Then we went for an 11 mile ish bike ride, stopped off at my mum's and borrowed some crochet hooks for the next stage of my blanket! Ed made risotto for dinner, we watched Stacey Dooley's Lockdown Heroes documentary and clapped for carers (the last one??), then Ed and I watched 3 episodes of Doctor Who and I began crocheting the trim on my blanket.
Day 60 (Friday 22nd) - breakfast, Doctor Who and crochet allll morning (I had to stop for breaks because my hands got so sore), then did some garden jobs before lunch and more Doctor Who. Then we went on a walk and discovered a new forest! (Day 60 and we're still discovering new lands just down the road!). Then I baked some cookies and Ed and I got hooked watching videos of vintage clapping monkeys on youtube. Yum pork for dinner, followed by Doctor Who of course (to quote myself: "we might as well make it a whole day"...I think we did 7 episodes?)
|They didn't look like the photo on the recipe but tasted delish|
Day 61 (Saturday 23rd) - went for a run and saw 2 cats, listened to a podcast about prayer, then breakfast and Saturday Morning Kitchen, watered my plants, had a finances sesh with Ed! Lunch and Doctor Who, crochet, then mum and 2 siblings visited and we talked through the car window. I finished my National Geographic drawing, had a zoom call, said hello through the window to my brother who'd come on a bike ride! We made arancini with the leftover risotto (yum!) and watched Britain's Got Talent lol, then more Doctor Who.

Day 62 (Sunday 24th) - Tom woke me up at 8am and we went outside to say hello to my sister who dropped by on her way home from a night shift, then back to my usual morning routine and Bible reading, followed by breakfast and Gardener's World. Church livestream, then zoom catch up. Ed and I went for a lovely picnic under a big oak tree! Idyllic! A very warm, sunny day and we saw a jay, read our books on a blanket in a sea of long grass. Picked a bouquet, came home and watched Penelope Keith's Hidden Villages and it was about Devon and Cornwall! Pasties for tea, then we zoomed with Ed's family, then had ice cream and watched Antiques Roadshow. I FINISHED MY BLANKET! Then we watched Doctor Who.

Day 63 (Monday 25th) - woke up, fed Tom and saw a seagull in the garden! Brekkie with Ed before he went to work (after his car wouldn't start so dad had to use the jump leads). I tidied my room, then went to Asda, photographed my blanket, repotted my fig tree, then had lunch. Dad and I went to my grandma's for a bike ride and it was so nice! We had a cuppa in her lovely garden, then came home. When Ed got back I made fajitas and nachos. Followed by a cuppa and some chocolate fingers. Grayson's Art Club, then Killing Eve! I started some new crochet because my hands yearned to be doing something whilst we watched TV.
- Watching Doctor Who is really fun because Ed and I were both fans when it was first on TV and it's kind of crazy how many details we can remember after not seeing it for 15 years. Great childhood mems. Also it's funny remembering how much I loved (idolised?) Rose Tyler lol.
- My hair is long enough now to tie up fairly successfully so I have been enjoying the old messy bun most days.
- My monstera leaves are all open!
- Must include a pic of Tom, he was a bit neglected in my last update. Here he is just waking up from a snooze on my bed as if it's his. He has also been enjoying more time in the garden recently with all the warm weather we're having.
