The UK slowly continues to open itself back up after the lockdown. The message is now very much about ‘getting back out there’ and ‘doing what you love safely.’
Sadly, I don’t hold much confidence in the public at large to adhere to the safety guidelines. But I will hold myself to them, no matter how small an effect it has.
Recently, we’ve been able to enjoy some fun activities. Here are a few snippets.We’ve met with our friends in the park a couple of times.
The weather was clement and it was really great to see the kids playing around outside.
We have laid down artificial grass and a new patio in our garden.
While I can’t claim this was ‘fun’ to do, it has been the perfect time and opportunity to get this done. I suspect a lot of people have also used this time at home to finally do little DIY projects (we also finished painting the bathroom ceiling).
My wife and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary.
Sadly, we weren’t really able to do much beyond ordering a takeaway. But I always welcome any occasion that lets us pop open a bottle of bubbly.
On chilly and rainy days, we have been doing some baking.
Because what child doesn’t love the idea of getting messy in a mixing bowl and then enjoying some cookies warm from the oven?
Finally, I did a video game livestream to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
It was part of an initiative called Geek Out For GOSH. I’m delighted to say I smashed my £100 target to raise a total of £250!
The stream was more fun and more successful than I could have hoped and it felt incredibly good to be able to do something like this again!The only downside was how tired I was the following day.
Totally worth it 😛
Thanks for reading, folks! Stay safe out there 😷✌️
