Project Life Revisited | Weeks 17 and 18

Week 17: Week 6 of Lockdown and one of emotional highs and lows. There was the cooking to new recipes. There was the birth of our latest great-nephew; he arrived in dramatic style, in the car, in the car park of the hospital. Mummy delivered her own baby while Daddy was parking the car. All are well. 🙂 The Brainy One’s favourite uncle passed away (not Covid-19 related) and as we were unable to travel North for the funeral, we watched it via podcast. A weird experience. I had a much-needed group video chat with friends.

Week 18: Week 7 of Lockdown. I made several rainbow cards to put in the windows at the front of our house. The Brainy One and I began watching series 6 of Bosch – we watched the whole series over five nights. The Best Friend and I spent an afternoon scrapbooking together on {Inter}National Scrapbook Day, thanks to the magic that is Facetime. I made Lemon Blueberry loaf.

  1. Congratulations on the birth of another great nephew & yes that was quite the dramatic entry into the world for this little person. I am sorry to hear of the loss of a well loved family member. Certainly difficult not being able to come together as family to grieve & remember. Technology is at least making it a possible way to connect both in sad & happy times.

    I like your rainbows – it certainly has become the theme of the lock down world wide.

    1. Thank you – it was a week where the circle of life was clearly evident!
      My mum always told me that rainbows were God’s promise of better times ahead.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about the favorite uncle’s passing! {{hugs from across the pond}}

    Congrats on the new nephew & WOW for a car park delivery. So glad everyone is doing well.

    I spent several hours on Facetime & Zoom on NSD as well – it was so FUN to connect with friends that way.

    1. As I just said earlier in reply to Mary-Lou, the circle of life was clearly evident that week.
      My best friend has just invited me to join her and a few others in an online crop via Zoom in early June, which I’m excited about!

  3. A car park delivery, now that will be a story to go down in family history! You must all be relieved to know that he is safely here, it must be very stressful to be pregnant at the moment. Sorry to hear of your loss, the ‘virtual’ funeral must have seemed very strange.
    Yes, thank goodness for Zoom and being able to have people inside our house (via a computer) again!
