Sunday Sevens 2020 #10

If last week was strange, this week was even more so. Adapting to the ‘new normal’ has certainly sapped my blogging mojo, but as it’s Sunday I’m here to show you a few pictures from my new normal week.

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day here in the UK – the rules don’t allow visitors, but I did receive a beautiful bunch of tulips from Lovely Eldest…


…and a lovely watercolour book from Lovely Littlest…


My fur baby, of course, was with me…

Mothers day00

He gave me some lovely new paints…


We went for a walk in the woods and found an egg on a tree stump…

About half the size of a hen’s egg, so a pretty big bird, but not convinced it had fallen there.

Lovely Husband is now working from home…



… so my art has had to recede to one end of the kitchen table…

Don’t get excited Lynn, it’s a kitchen roll not a toilet roll (and should be down by my art)

Outings are now only allowed for exercise and essentials. I’m more than lucky to be able to take some beautiful walks straight from the house. As you can see the weather has been fabulous. 20200324_1133520020200327_1043480020200324_1200090020200327_11281100

And a finally a pic of my clemantis finally in full bloom…


A strange but good week and I count myself lucky to be able to have the life I have even on lock down.

Stay safe.

Until next time,

      1. screen breaks are obligatory, and should include a change in posture and movement (can you tell I have to remind people of that in the past?!) Lovely post. I’m grateful to be in Exeter, not a big city.

      2. Ha ha! He is very good about working properly from home, but of course Harry does need his quota of cuddles.
        Yes, we’re both very fortunate not to be stuck in the concrete – although that would have sent me mad prior to lock down.


  1. We’re coming to the end of our second week of lockdown and two more have been announced.
    I have all I need here really – although I’d have preferred it if youngest was also here but it can’t be helped – I’m not going to complain when I could be living in a small flat with no outside space and children at home 😱 or worse. I am rather bemused by those who say they’ve been doing lots of housework because they are bored. Things would have to get a lot worse before that would be my isolation activity of choice.
    Mr. T. is also working from home but is usually in a sitting position or skiving out in the garden. He likes to cook and, as I try to only have a glass of wine (or two) in the evenings when he’s home and don’t drink when he’s not, I am likely to end up getting fat and a little red nosed by the end of it. I also didn’t manage to get to the hairdressers before lockdown so i’m about to find out how I will look with long, grey hair too. I’ll be so attractive.
    The clematis is looking lovely by the way.

    1. I’m glad you’re safe and have what you need. I’d love to gather my two daughters to me too. I agree, we’re lucky where we live.
      I’m sure you’ll survive lock down untarnished by fat and unattractiveness. I didn’t make it to the hair dressers either and have already cut my fringe. Will have roots, but hopefully not too much grey.


  2. It’s been really strange hasn’t it but the sunshine has helped. It’s times like this i miss having a dog. It’s such a blessing we have our crafts to keep our sanity😂 and everyday is a day closer to when we can be with our families again.

    1. The sunshine has definitely made things better – although for those who can’t go out at all it’s a bit of a kick in the teeth as it was raining non-stop from September until they got their lock down orders 😦
      Another day nearer – that’s an excellent way to look at it 🙂
