A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 10. This week was Little E’s return to school. Ethan has now been back at his SEN school for two weeks. Both children were also able to have hot lunches and we nearly held a celebration just for that! After the last lockdown, Ethan’s school kitchen had issues with space and being Covid secure. Before Christmas, they were able to offer hot dinners but it was on a class rotation. In Little E’s school kitchen they had oven issues. They could only recently get this fixed. Darren is the packed lunch maker he is pleased that some days he now gets a break!
Project 365 – 2021 Week 10
We went for another walk in Castle Park today. They have a cafe in the park and I thought it would be a nice idea to order a hot drink from them. It always looks like it never has any customers when we pass. Ironically when we stopped for drinks so did everyone else. We ordered hot chocolates with whipped cream on top. It looked like ice cream and wasn’t the easiest thing to drink as we went on our daily walk.
Another Sunday scooter walk at Brightlingsea for us this morning. Little E wanted to take a closer look at Batemans Tower leaving me to hold her scooter.
We have got into the same routine with our meals lately and have started eating too many pizzas. So we ordered some new slow cooker cookbooks. They arrived today and we went through them trying to work out what meals the children might like. We have tried a new meal every night this week, they didn’t go down that well with the children!
Darren has been having rapid lateral flow tests regally at our local leisure center. With the children back at school, we are now able to order home testing kids. Darren picked some up from the local university and I helped him take his first test tonight. Thankfully it was negative, we will be taking the tests twice a week. I haven’t been brave enough to take my test yet.
One of our new meals to try, Cowboy Casserole. Both Darren and I liked it but the children weren’t so keen. I’m glad that they both tried some even if it was just one small piece.
After school, I walked into town with Little E. I saw the Marks and Spencer’s Mothers Day meal deal advertised. I told Darren I would buy us one and he can cook it for me on Sunday. Little E helped choose the options. This was the first time I have been in a shop this year. I last went into Marks and Spencer’s on Christmas eve. Darren is the one that has been going out shopping for our weekly food during the past year.
Little E picked a daffodil on the way home from school. She loves flowers, she tried to plant it in the garden when we got home. I hold her that wasn’t possible. We are hoping to do some work on our garden over Easter. I think I will make an area for her to plant some flowers.
That was our 2021 Week 10 adventure. You can read about our week 9 here.
