Things that I have Liked and Loved in April 2020

At last, April is over and we are through yet another month of lockdown. I suspect that we will have at least another three weeks if not more being stuck inside, though it’s all for our own safety and therefore I must not moan… (moan moan moan).

Despite being stuck within the same four walls, we’ve made the most of our time together – here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout April.

Paul Turned Thirty-Something

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Five Minutes Peace

Being a creature of habit, I have my routines one of which is following lunch and tea (depending on whether it’s a work day or the weekend) Paul and I will clear the table, wash the pots and get as many of the chores out of the way before taking five to sit at the kitchen table and to enjoy a cup of coffee and a catch up whilst the kids entertain themselves.
