It is hard to know what pictures to take and share to be honest. We aren’t doing much, home educating in the morning/afternoon and just chilling in the evening.
Sunday 10 January – Day 10
We didn’t really do much at all today but the day still ended up passing by quickly! I had a parcel come and then Rosie decided to play with the bubble wrap which amused the girls.
Monday 11 January – Day 11
Hubby had a day off from work and he was meant to take dad to his hearing appointment because I had a telephone consultation booked in at the same time. As he was about to walk out the door to take dad I received a phonecall cancelling dad’s appointment and rearranging it for next week. Glad I managed to catch him before he left and ended up at the parents house. Bee has been asking to go on the treadmill after seeing me walk on it so her dad gave her some training today and she now knows how to use it…she seems keen to walk on it regularly…..will see how long that lasts!
Tuesday 12 January – Day 12
I had asked hubby to go to work late today as the eldest had an orthodontist appointment and I couldn’t leave Bee home alone to do her online classes. Eldest was a bit upset at the thought of having the braces tightened again and being in pain again for a few days….but when she arrived home she was happy! They had taken the braces off! We hadn’t been expecting that. She has to go back on Friday to get her retainers. Dad then called me to tell me he had received a letter cancelling his second does of his vaccination on Sunday because the government have decided to wait at least 12 weeks rather than the 3 weeks recommended by those that created the vaccine. There has been no research done on it being left for that long so I find it slightly concerning and feel that the public are being used as guinea pigs. Forgot to take a picture of anything apart from Rosie.
Wednesday 13 January – Day 13
Not a lot happening today either to be honest. While the girls were doing their classes I got an IGTV live of a book I was sent to review.
Thursday 14 January – Day 14
Not a lot happening again today. Girls got on with their classes….I just read and watched some Netflix. Rosie just slept all day. There was a slight sprinkling of snow but it didn’t settle.
Friday 15 January – Day 15
Had to take the eldest to get her retainers. She has to wear them all the time for 3 months and just take them out for eating….and then after the 3 months wear them when she goes to sleep. She was given an appointment in July to check that all is OK. Realised I need to move the car a bit more as it struggled to start and gave me an Engine Malfunction warning. Thankfully after switching it off and on it was ok. But hubby said he will ask his friend to give it a once over soon. I then managed to get a blog post live for a book review: Turning the Tide.
I had ordered a doll for my great niece as it looks like I won’t be able to see her for a while so decided to just post some gifts. The doll arrived today and she is lovely!
Had a meeting in the evening as I am thinking to get involved in a local project and it was finding out about that, does seem like hard work but will be worth it if we can pull it off.
Saturday 16 January – Day 16
Did debate whether to go out for a walk today but we felt cold and I think we have gotten a bit lazy and just used to staying at home. Did a bit of reading, watching TV, Bee did a bit of colouring and in the evening ordered a takeaway as I was craving some chicken strips.

I need to do the same with my car. It’s not been driven since just around new year, and it needs a good run out. Farm shop trip tomorrow although that’s not far. I feel bad just taking it for a drive, but it needs it desperately. Should be taking it out once a week at least. Good news with the braces/retainer. I think N will need to have a brace when he’s a bit older – he’s got wobbly teeth galore and not many left to lose, so I expect it’ll be either late next year or early secondary school.
I think Bee will need them too as a couple of her teeth are a bit wonky
It’s so hards to find anything inspiring to take photos of at the moment isn’t it. Cats come to the rescue don’t they. Glad your OH hadn’t left home before your Dad’s appointment was cancelled. #365
Yes not sure what I would do if I didn’t have a cat!
Life seems to have been taken over with home schooling. I have been struggling with photos too.
Good on Bee for wanting to exercise. My two have become so lazy lately.
That is great news that your eldest got her braces off. I bet she is happy.
What a pretty doll x

Yes she was so pleased to finally get them off!
How lovely that your eldest had her braces taken off – always nice when that happens especially when it is unexpected. Lots of lovely photos of Rosie. I love the doll for your great niece. Bee looks like she was enjoying using the treadmill. #project365
Definitely nice when its a surprise!
It sounds like you had a good quiet week. I love the cat pictures. We are still waiting for my parents to hear about the vaccine. They are quite slow in our area. Our car is being used as my husband takes it to work but we aren’t having to spend as much on petrol which is nice #WotW

Ah yes not having to spend so much on petrol is a bonus!
We are the same really not getting up to much at all. Glad Bee liked the treadmill I am tempted to get an exercise machine. I am with you on the 12 weeks I think we should be following the instructions given by the scientists which say 3 weeks! Yay for take out at the weekends.

Definitely should be be following the 3 weeks!
So lucky that your daughter had her braces taken off. My son had his off just before the first lockdown and just wears his retainers at night. All mine need to see the dentist though but we still cannot get an appointment. Hope the treadmill is more than a passing fad
We haven’t been for a general checkup now in over a year! Need to try to get an appointment
I am so glad that your daughter is done with her orthodontic treatment. Make sure she places the retainers if they are the removable ones. They are very important to stop relapse!
Yes she has been wearing them and I am keeping an eye on her to make sure she wears them
It’s so worrying what they do with the vaccinations, spreading them so far apart. They truly are using people as guinea pigs.
Lovely that Bee wants to exercise on a treadmill. I wouldn’t know where to start with it.
Rosie is a good photo model. I also lack inspiration to take photos daily, with the same routine every day, and not much happening.
It is so hard isn’t it with trying to take pictures every day!
Your takeaway looked nice, I quite fancy one now! Feeling the same about not knowing what to take photos of. I love your Rosie picture, your cat is always so photogenic! We have a rowing machine but haven’t been using it lately, I think the boys might use a treadmill more. Yours looks quite fancy with lots of buttons!
