How’s Everyone Doing?

Happy Monday to you all, we made it through yet another week in lockdown, so we’ll done to you all as you’re all doing amazing! How are you doing through this lockdown?

 

So here in Yorkshire it’s the start of our Easter holidays, I guess this year it’s going to be completely different. Last year me and my youngest went to Euro Disney so totally different Easter this year, maybe we’ll still visit Disney but through our photos and memories and printed where there?

This Easter we did have a few plans and I was going to take just over a week off from work, I guess now that’s changed a little, but I’m still going to take sometime off as I still need a break and still need to have some fun with my family. So instead of going away, we’re going to go to many different places, but through a virtual way via the internet. We’ve decided we can still have as much fun visiting different places without having to leave home. We’ll be also playing out in the garden too. We won’t be leaving home, we have been in for the last 2 weeks as there’s no need for us to leave here.

Over the last 2 weeks a few things have changed here at LIWL HQ these are just temporary changes and once things get back to normal then the few changes I’ve made will go back to normal too. So I’ve dropped posting days down to 2 days a week. Every week day I get a collection from Royal Mail, me and my postman who collects your orders have a good system in place so that we don’t have to be in the same room together when he collects. On the 2 days I post out I leave all your orders in postal bags outside my workshop window, my bar code for my postman is in this window. I also leave the daily paperwork with my post bags outside too. He comes to the window, I wave and shout hello and he scans my barcode and paperwork and takes my parcel bags away with him. We’ve always had a quick chat before, but for now we’ve stopped any contact whatsoever so keep me safe and him safe too. I feel that cutting my postage days down to 2 days a week means it’s better for my postman and me.

So this Friday brings us Good Friday and then Easter Sunday, yes I’ve eaten my egg already I bet you have too? I couldn’t wait, I’ve actually eaten loads of chocolate over the last 2 weeks, I can’t help myself lol. We’ve all actually eaten our eggs and it looks like Easter Sunday we won’t have any, unless when Richard does our shopping (as he’s the one who’s our shopper whilst this is all going on) surprises us and buys more……may just need to add them to the shopping list I’m giving him for tomorrow.

We are all keeping positive, and yes we keep smiling and laughing as it’s how we are getting through this and I’ve always said…..laughters good for the soul 😊 I’m also aware than many will struggle and as I’ve said before my inbox is always open to anyone, please don’t feel alone as we are all here to help each other get through this sad time.

Keep safe everyone, keep smiling, keep in touch with friends and families via video calling and remember you’re all amazing!

 

Sending love to everyone!

    Our 3 boys are on holiday too for 2 weeks. I’m working this week but off next so will be thinking of lots to entertain them. I’ve been teaching them how to cook our tea daily ( one at a time) as I always cook from scratch. It’s been great fun and where I got my passion for cooking and trying out new recipes was when I cooked with my late Mum. Wonderful memories.
    I’ve got eggs for my boys too and I used to buy them Lego as they got loads of chocolate from relatives. I give them money now that they can save and buy what they’d like.
    Hope everyone is well, love your Blogs Rach. 💞Xxx

      It sounds like you’ve lots of lovely things planned. It’s nice being able to find more time for cooking and experimenting, my waist line can tell you how much we’re enjoying my extra cooking lol. I’ve always loved cooking, but the last 2 weeks we’ve been more relaxed about what time we eat as we feel time doesn’t matter during the day at the moment. I hope you have a beautiful week off and stay safe. Thank you for commenting on my blog this evening xx

    I may be new to the LIWL community but your positivity is so lovely and I love being part of such a welcoming and positive group. Feels like I’ve been part of it for ages! We were due to go on holiday this Easter too, so we’re just going to make the most of being together as a family and eating chocolate. I’m SO looking forward to that as I gave up chocolate for lent, so bring on Easter Sunday! Keep safe and happy xx

    Thank you for another fab blog! I look forward to reading these on Mondays now. The 3 Chocolate Orange Exploding Candy Easter eggs that I bought the kids were demolished within an hour of getting home from shopping last week. We have a chocolate drawer at the bottom of the fridge which is rarely raided, but when the Easter eggs arrive, that’s a different story!
    We didn’t book any holidays for the school breaks this year so haven’t had to worry about cancelling them, but it must be heartbreaking for those families who have booked already. We will be making memories at home, appreciate and enjoy the simpler things in life. Take care lovely lady xx

      Hi Wai, now those Easter eggs sound amazing and I’m not surprised they got eaten as soon as you got them home lol. Yes it’s very sad for those who’ve booked, but hopefully they’ll get their money back or given the option to rebook again for next year. I really hope you have an amazing Easter break and keep smiling and remember you’re amazing. Rachel…..x
