Well we are almost back to fully functioning humans. Less shit more Smiles.
The kids have spent the day singing, hit me with your best shot! Fire Away, whilst dancing and running backwards and forwards. I wonder if other parents are finding this. Not the singing but the pacing, done in running form. From front door to back door over and over again. I think it annoys Ben but apart from the time Rowan fell flat on her nose ( I was expecting blood but she was fine, will look for black eye tomorrow) it’s been without incident. It’s a way for them to burn off some energy. Maybe cabin fever has started to set in a bit.
I feel like I’ve lost a week. Its crazy that we have been down with a bug for a whole 7 days let alone the fact we are on day 17 of barely leaving the house. The whole not seeing our friends and family is only made better by video calling. Thank god for technology. Charlie and Davi video call and play games on messenger when they are both paying attention at the same time, which is harder than it sounds.
Grannie dropped eggs at the back gate so waved and chatted from afar. Kids are really good and stay well back without being asked.
I let the kids pick a recipe from the kids cookbook which was biscuits. It was supposed to be a piped biscuit but we went with circles. It’s hard not to take over but between them they can measure and pour so I try to let them do all elements. A piping bag is a step too far though. We also made gingerbread which is one we do all the time, but I went for easy with a large cutter.
Our bakery order of pasties and cakes came. Its sugar over load here now. Ben and I braved the pasties but that was a limit.
Kids did colouring, dressing up, played with badges and that damn pillow fort/chair was back In action. Gonna get back to more home school schedule on Monday.
Ben had to put money in bank as its the end of the tax year. Bank had 2 in and 2 out and not much of a que. The pharmacy and co op opposite had long queues so he had to snake carefully between the two. It seemed generally busier out. Ben also laid a few more slabs so getting there.
Kids watched Zootopia which didnt hold their attention for long and Charlie picked High School musical which even he regretted.
Got a Tesco due tomorrow morning so waiting to see what we get. Gonna use the back gate and decontaminate. Maybe we will feel up for wine tomorrow.
