It’s been a while again, Dear Peeps. We’re in Week 7 of a 7 Day Circuit Breaker Lockdown. Yes, you read that correctly. 7 days has morphed into 7 weeks and it looks like another 5 weeks or so before any substantial changes are made to our lifestyles in Melbourne. While I know it’s necessary I miss seeing Mum, holding her hand and giving her hugs; texts and Facetime just don’t cut it. I miss seeing my friends; whatsapp texting and video sewing just don’t cut it. I miss my students; again texting and video class just don’t cut it.

I haven’t felt much like posting, and haven’t read many others either. Each day is blurring into another. But with an end date in sight we need to gird our loins and hang in there for just a little bit longer.

So while I daydream of meals and coffees out with family and friends, I’ll share some of the food that we’ve been having at home. While my wrist was out of action The Golfer did a sterling job of keeping us nourished.

We’ve had sausage and rice dishes, pasta bakes, home made hamburgers and frittatas

My gammy-wristed attempt at toast and jam from one of my students – the most delicious apricot jam ever! Oops – the frittata pic got in there twice! Well, we have had it more than once (I’m obviously out of practice), and burgers with home made relish from another student

Between lockdowns, a meal with family friends and a lunch out! Oh, those were the days!

And a casual Saturday night antipasto type dinner with home made humus

We are trying to eat well and vary up the diet to add interest and The Golfer is still cooking quite a bit which I don’t object to at all!

Til next time. Happy eating!

    Thanks Meredithe! I do understand. I have yet to be bold enough to cut some fabric & sew! You are sorely missed…maybe 2022 will see us back to gathering. Meantime a little zoom is mmuch better than nothing. Also trying to provide meal variety, but nothing is worth photographing! Howeveri t eats well (mostly)! xxx

    This lockdown seems to be taking its toll this time. Lack of motivation seems to be the constant conversation point but the last couple of days I have made some progress in finishing a couple of UFO’s.

    Hopefully we will be out of lockdown soon that’s what I am hoping.

    Take care and do whatever recharges you physically and emotionally.

    Goodluck with the rest of lockdown what ever that may be……..
    It’s so unpredictable what decisions happen when…… So let’s hope you get out sooner rather then later…….
    Looks like you’ve had some yummy food……

    Just hang on in there Little Sis, you will get through it. Big hugs for you, the Golfer and Ma from your loving Big Sis xoxo

    Oh yes, I hear you! I’m finding the daily dinner decisions are tricky, as you say trying to vary it all to keep things interesting. Looks like the Golfer is pretty versatile in the kitchen! We hear today from Jacinda as to whether we go down to L3, fingers & toes all crossed!

  6. I was hearing from another friend that Lockdown Six had all but blended into Lockdown Seven with barely a break, and I agree that it is very hard, as things stand, to get up much enthusiasm for anything much. All that good food must help a little, though, surely?

    Those were the days. Keep hanging in there. Summer will give you more outside opportunities.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
