We reached desperate times this week with my partner and I giving one another lockdown-haircuts! I could pretend that we educated ourselves beforehand by watching online tutorials or seeking the advice of friends who might be a little better equipped in this department but no! We decided to be more spontaneous and just went for it! Whilst it was initially quite a fun and even thrilling experience, feeling all-powerful! These feelings of excitement were quickly replaced with fear and even dread at viewing the final results in the mirror!
A little shorter than both of us expected and I think in all honesty we both should have done a bit more research before wielding the scissors! However, all in all, a novel experience and nice to get rid of a chunk of matted mess on my head! Let’s hope I can get a proper haircut soon to rectify the mistakes made! Not so bad though Year 3, you know me well enough to know that I often tie it back anyway and thankfully I can still do that!
Other tasks we dived into this week included cooking our own crispy onions to add to a potato salad we had made. Isla was a great help, wanting to get stuck in straight away with rolling the chopped onion pieces in egg and sprinkling on flour. A huge mess all round but nothing that couldn’t be mopped up with a bit of elbow-grease! I’m pleased to say that this addition to the dish made for a lovely lunch, even though Isla didn’t try even a morsel. One day…!
This week you have been as busy as ever, producing some outstanding work. Here’s a small sample to enjoy glancing through:
Remember our next Zoom-catch up will be next Thursday at the new time of 2:30PM. We thought it might be a nice opportunity for you to bring along a book that you have read which you can then recommend to your friends? This might be a good chance to explore some new authors and genres. Not obligatory though, we hope to see you there if you are able to make it!
Enjoy a lovely weekend with your families. Love to you all!
