My word, what a busy month March has been. So much has changed over these past few weeks whilst in reality very little has actually altered, it’s been a rather strange but satisfying time.
After YEARS of whining and whinging about our disgusting and incredibly dated kitchen, my wishes are finally coming true as we’ve had a lady come out to measure and to design us a brand new kitchen which, fingers crossed, should be fitted this summer! I’ve spent the past few weeks flipping through catalogues circling sinks, taps, range ovens, microwaves, fridge-freezers, counter-tops, cupboards, doors, handles, flooring, tiles, and all things ‘kitchen orientated’ to be sure that our preferences are perfectly presented.
It really feels like things are coming together in terms of DIY plans and projects around the house – we’ve managed to have the house measured for new windows which should be fitted next month, we’ve made plans for the boiler to be moved from the kitchen into the garage and we’ve even started looking at summer houses to complete our outdoor space. Hopefully, by autumn, we will have completed almost everything on our lengthy list, and from there on we should only need to update rooms with a lick of paint now and then.
We’ve spent the past few weeks working our way through watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine – a hilarious American sit-com that follows a team of police officers as they go about solving various investigations. Though we are only halfway through the however many seasons of this show, I for one am hooked!
If there’s one thing that has made living through a pandemic ever so slightly easier, it has to be good old Netflix. Where would be without streaming services during a lockdown? Can you imagine if this had happened thirty years or so ago when we only had four television channels to choose from and very little else other than Teletext and Radio to keep us entertained? There were no internet streaming services, Zoom meetings, google classrooms, Facebook friends, blogs, YouTube, or anything of the sort back then… What would we have done?!
With the return of school, we’ve had the return of the alarm clock – oh how I curse that blasted beeping each morning though it’s been great to get back into a routine.
Following the installation of our hot tub, my husband has spent weeks planning and building the most perfect pergola to complete the setup. I meanwhile have been busy making random resources to assist my children’s learning, sewing yet more tarot pouches, and baking various cakes and bakes including a victoria sponge for my Mother’s sixty-fifth birthday.
March saw my husband and I make a return to wearing work clothes, which is fine apart from that our washload seems to have doubled. I really ought to update my ‘work wardrobe’ at some point but I hate clothes shopping online, it’ll be far easier once the shops reopen.
Mothers Day was earlier this month and I was spoilt rotten with cards, flowers, chocolates, and alcoholic beverages. My kids sure know how to show me their appreciation and love, though I suspect that without my husband’s help I’d not be quite as spoilt…
