The Lockdown – Day 25: What Day Is It Again?

14th April 2020 – Tuesday

We are now on the way to day 25 of this nonsense … I mean lockdown. Are we seeing any improvements in numbers? I don’t think so. It’s getting tiresome now. I really want to go hangout with my friends, go on a day trip somewhere … go get a hot chocolate from Costa.

Today was just like any other day. Homeschool until late afternoon, the kids kicked the ball about in the front yard … even they are getting bored of that.

I think I need sleep … I’ve not been sleeping well lately (anxiety issues again) and my body just feels wrecked. Ahhh … no wonder my immune system is down and my glands are the size of grapes.

I did experiment with a couple of new recipes today though so all was not in vain. I made Glutinous Rice Balls in Ginger Syrup which is a lovely sticky rice ball filled with black sesame paste floating around in a warm ginger syrup. I haven’t eaten it in ages so I was excited to make this one.

I also tried making Vietnamese Pizza which is a popular Vietnamese street food snack. It is just rice paper heated over a grill pan with eggs and other wonderful toppings. It came out better than I expected and Skye loved it!

I’m hoping to experiment with more recipes after I get a good night sleep.

Much love to you all!
