Sunday Day 89 – 29th March
Decided to do a spot of baking with Bee. We hadn’t managed to find any flour before the lockdown but had found this! They came out ok, but to be honest I always find the taste of these ready made mixes a bit weird.
Monday Day 90 – 30th March
The eldest is spending a lot of time in her room doing her school work and today I got Bee to start some work too. Last week I was a bit slack with her due to her foot and let her rest up with a lot more screen time than I would have liked. Bee’s hand has been extremely dry for about a week and someone recommended Grapeseed Oil. It really did help and I have started using it too as I often get dry skin.
Tuesday Day 91 – 31st March
Bee has been gutted that she never got to dress up this weekend for the wedding. She had received a David Charles Childrens Wear dress to wear to the wedding and review, so instead we took some photos in the garden ready for me to write a review later in the week.
The fracture clinic phoned today as they are only offering phone consultations. We were told it was a very thin line and should heal with no future problems for Bee. She has to keep the boot on for 4-5 weeks. Maybe 6 if I think she needs it. The foot may be sore once she takes it off..that is normal. And then no contact sports for a further 4 weeks. If I am concerned after the initial 6 weeks to phone them and they will advise further. They are trying not to see anyone but will do if they feel they need too. Hoping no complications arise after the 4-5 weeks. She will have had the boot for 1 week tomorrow.
Wednesday Day 92 – 1st April
Decided to try the free trial for Mathletics. I hate Maths but Bee is pretty good at it and seems to enjoy it. So I thought if she likes it I will pay for it.
Last night we coloured in a neighbour and some stars for the wedding. Her school had recommended we do stars too as stars are part of their whole ethos. We put them up and they made the window look cheerful.
Thursday Day 93 – 2nd April
Remembered that some time ago I had purchased a lot of Crochet Magazines which came with wool so decided to dig them out and teach myself some crochet! However couldn’t find the crochet hook things so ordered some from Amazon which should arrive tomorrow. Let’s see if I get anywhere with crocheting!
Bee also finished her video she was making as part of her school homework for planting a sunflower seed and we planted it outside. She had been making a video from the start of March documenting its growth. Sent the video to her headteacher who said she would put it on the school website tomorrow!
Friday Day 94 – 3rd April
The crochet hooks arrived and managed to teach myself the first basic stitch…maybe if I am patient enough I can do this! Decided to purchase a 6 month subscription for Mathletics as Bee seems to be enjoying it. I had ordered some plants online for my hanging basket and tyre planters and they arrived today! Inspired me to get out in the garden and see what needs doing. I love these flowers. Also managed to do some blog work and wrote a post about Ramadan Activity Books.
Saturday Day 95 – 4th April
Sunny day and got the girls out into the garden although they would have probably preferred to stay on their electronics, eldest in particular. When I said no electronics she decided tidying her room was better than being out in the garden! Hubby was bored and decided to sort out all the kitchen cupboards. He has been pretty helpful round the house!
Beginning to get a bit frustrated about having to stay at home now but I know it is for the best.

It is tough, but better than the alternative. I admit I’m feeling it the most getting nearer to Easter as was planning to see my family but Alhamdulillah we’re all at home where we need to be.
Good on you for teaching youself crochet! I can’t focus on anything creative at the moment, but I’m excited to see what you come up with!

Yes the easter holidays are making it tougher. Had been hoping to get away somewhere these holidays.
sadly the people that are getting bored with being at home and more so now the official holidays are here then I think the numbers will rise as people will start going back out.
Hope the foot heals ok and no need to go back.
Glad your husband is finding things to amuse himself with

Yes the weather is tempting people to go out!
Those ready mix cakes do taste weird but my girls still love making them.
Good on you eldest spending time doing her schoolwork.
That new dress of Bee’s is beautiful. I am sure she’ll have plenty of times to wear it when this is all over.
It is rotten that Bee has hurt her foot but it has came at the best time with social distancing, no school and most importantly no karate. I hope it heals well.
Good luck with the crocheting! x

The karate school are holding online lessons so she is missing out on them unfortunately. But yes it is good there is no school as that would be hard
We have been doing rainbows but I think stars are a nice addition.Mine are desperate to do some baking but cannot get hold of flour for love nor money at the moment
A local bakery is delivering flour..might take them up on it
Love the pattern on Bee’s dress, sorry to hear she won’t get to wear it to the wedding, hope her foot continues to heel nicely. I’ve asked my mum to send me a ball of wool as I have a crochet hook here, I can do the first chain but struggle with turning the corner, good luck with it, keep well

Yep I am struggling with the same!
N’s hands are really dry too – he’s been slapping on my very expensive handcream, so I need to get him his own cheaper version. Love the dress, it’s really pretty pattern.
Quite a few friends have said their kids hands are dry
It is hard going. It is hard to do the things you have planned. Way to go on crocheting, I have tried so many times, but I am so bad at it xx
I have a feeling the crocheting won’t last long!
It sounds like you’ve been keeping pretty busy! How is the crochet going now? The fracture clinic appointment sounded a very sensible way of doing things. I’ve taken my kids to fracture clinic appointments at the hospital before and they are always running very late, it’s very crowded in there and it might actually have been painful for them to actually make it to the hospital, then they say exactly what they told you, which could easily have been done on the phone!

I cant seem to get past the second line of stitches for crochet but am continuing to practice!
Hope that Bee’s foot continues to heal well. We’ve not tried Mathletics but I’ve heard good things about it. Glad Bee is enjoying it. That dress is so pretty. Love the rainbow and stars in your window. #project366
Thank you, it does seem to be healing well
The cake mixes do taste rather artificial, but they can be a good base for baking, with extra ingredients. You can use it to make cookies, waffles, cakes etc. I’m addictively fascinated by what the American sites suggest doing with the cake mixes. I even have a Pinterest board where I collected quite a few recipes, which I haven’t added anything to recently.
Sorry to hear about Bee’s foot, hope it is healing well. Love her new dress, and hope she will be able to wear it for another occasion soon. Keep safe!
Oh I hadn’t thought to use the mixes for other things. Might try it
Glad to hear that Bee is on the mend. Hopefully you will not have to go into hospital to get it looked at. The dress looks beautiful the little detail in the sleeves is really delicate. I hope that the crochet is going well, I tried it once but was not very successfully.

The sleeves are my favourite. I haven’t got too far with the crochet to be honest!
Glad Bee doesn’t need any other treatment (hopefully). The dress is beautiful – a shame not to have an occasion to wear it. Good luck with the crocheting.

They are planning to hold the wedding once restrictions are lifted so she should get to wear it!
I hope Be heals. The dress looks great from how much is visible. The window does look cheerful. Crotchet and planting? You all keeps yourselves busy and its great to know you all are in a calm positive mood.
There is no point getting stressed…just have to make the most of it and stay positive
I am interested in grape seed oil, what is it supposed to do.
That company makes THE most amazing dresses, sadly the teen is too big for them now, but we loved working with them, and their dresses are divine.
Meant to be good for dry skin. Has helped Bee’s dry hands.
