Another lock-down birthday and this time it was my mum's turn. We had a video catch up and sang 'Happy Birthday' on the day and her parcel home made bunting from me and a handmade card from Pip arrived the following day:
The scissors were out and it was time for another at home hair cut courtesy of mum! I've managed to neaten Pip's asymmetric cut and thankfully it is almost all one length, much easier to style:
Last week's veg box brought a bunch of beetroot so a quick search on BBC Good Food and we found a recipe for beetroot and onion tart. The pastry contained grated carrot and was soft and light. Gluten free pastry can be notoriously temperamental and it can be quite tough if the dough does not contain an egg but not so with this mix, a real winner:
Ben and Pip's relationship has strengthened during this time and although they have their moments they do have fun together:
Another week over and a new one about to begin, even though most days feel like 'ground hog day!' Slowly we are making changes to our weekly rhythm, Friday has been declared a 'do your own thing day' provided it does not involve video gaming!! Saturday is family chores and pizza/soup day :-) and as from today we will be having a lunch date with Mum H at 12:30 pm every day. This will have a two fold benefit, accountability for me to ensure that lunch is served in a timely manner and a good way to break up the monotony of Mum's day.
Hope you are managing to stay safe and well xx
