Post Comment Love 17th-19th April 2020

Hope everyone had a good Easter. I'm known in my family and circle of friends as being super organised. As an expat relying on an unreliable postal service, I prepare for events well in advance and back in February I'd put together parcels with gifts ready to post on my return to the UK in March. Although the post offices were open and my self isolation had finished, I decided it was not an essential trip so I repacked into post box sized packages. This meant I had 4 Easter eggs, sweets and craft activities and seeds and bird feeders that I'd put together for my niece and great nephew and great niece to occupy myself with.

I've created a little garden in the conservatory, planting up seeds and I've finished all the work I can do in the garden without help to move heavy pots.

It was our youngest child's 21st birthday on the 14th. I hadn't had chance to get him a special card and had planned to send him a cake. So I baked some Gluten Free brownies for me, put candles on them and sang to him over messenger. I'd posted his card, banner, badge and balloons so he knew I'd made an effort and when all this is over and Peter can get to the UK, we'll take him out for dinner and sort a gift for him them.

Stephanie and I would love to hear about what you've been up to this week.

  1. I like the idea of your pottering and isn't that a marvellous word. I always get the impression you are a great mum who has brought up individual and independent children #PoCoLo

    1. Thank you Kate, that means a lot. Pottering for me is what others do when they procrastinate lol
