A few days have passed since my last blog with sunny days enjoyed in the garden.
We’ve enjoyed some great food, with popcorn chicken and beef stroganoff two of the faves.
I tidied a couple of drawers and did the whole Marie Kondo thing: feel if there’s joy in an item, so a few pieces were discarded, with the associated memories.
Joe went shopping and brought back something which was a reminder of Italy last year and did fluffy pancakes for brunch.
Nina and Joe went for a walk in the afternoon.
Saturday was my Mum’s birthday and we were also remembering Andrew’s father in law Tony, at 2pm, as his memorial in Tasmania is now cancelled. We first met Tony and Jen in 2009 and they are such warm, genuine, lovely people. We took them to our hearts, and we have been fortunate to have spent time with them, most recently in 2017. Jen did a wonderful reading and a video montage of photos that he took over the years and it did bring a few tears to my eyes. I still remember his speech at the wedding, just so funny!
I went out for a walk for the first time in two weeks, and Georgina did my nails.
We then called Mum for her birthday.
we could hear her but not see her and it was a bit strange. We’ll just have to make up for it next year!
Easter Sunday arrived and we spoke with Andrew and Lis, a bit of a lazy day followed with prepping for dinner.
We enjoyed a roast dinner with a kinder bueno cheesecake, which was divine. I made Easter bunny napkins for the table which was a bit of fun.
Tomorrow will be the end of the three week lockdown and we will find out how much longer the next stage and it’s measures will be. We are still safe and whilst today is chilly, the next few days promise warmer weather to brighten our days.
