Because it’s Easter Sunday today I decided I would put on some proper clothes and give the joggies and pyjamas a day off. After getting dressed, day 21 of lockdown for us started with an Easter egg for breakfast for the whole family. You might be surprised to hear that from a family of dentists but to be honest I would confidently bet that all dental professionals have the sweetest tooth of any other line of work. For any dentists or dental nurses reading this – tell me I’m wrong and there’s no secret stash of goodies in the staff room??
Im actually glad we’ve restocked up on the home treats after Raashi and I demolished the chocolate caramel coconut cake from our staff bake off last week. That was good fun and this week I’m looking forward to the ‘Ready steady cook’ challenge. We’ll be inviting patients to join us on that one so watch this space for details.
We’re blessed to have a nice garden at home so it’s been great having the nice weather to enjoy. Certainly makes the lockdown much easier being able to ‘chill’ outside in the fresh air. One thing I’ve realised during the past 3 weeks though is that my 3 year old in fact has no chill. Her friend Jack taught her the game of saying…’Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy’……….then when I respond she replies………’nothing’…and runs off. That seems to be her go to game when all else is quiet at the minute. 🤦🏻♂️
She seems to be weaning off her afternoon naps at the moment too so I’ve had to resort to the following measures to catch up on some sleep during our Disney films:
We tried a game today of playing ‘Sandstorm’ on the piano and I had visions of our Easter concert going viral but in reality here’s how it went down:
This week coming we were due to open up our new dental practice but obviously all that has ground to a halt. The builders have been able to go in 1 by 1 to get some things finished off though so hopefully when we get the go ahead there won’t be too much left to do. It gives us more time to make it that bit extra special too!
Have a lovely Easter Weekend all and stay safe,
