It’s Monday (April 20, 2020)

Oh it’s Monday again. Hello hello. How are you?

The kids had Spring Break last week. Of course it was Stay-Home-Spring-Break so we did a lot of at-home things like watching TV, playing Nintendo Switch, colouring, doing crafts, reading, scootering around, cycling, board games, and Lego.

We also watched the 25th anniversary Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall over the weekend. What fun! Well the kids watched part of it – it’s very long after all. They do know some of the songs. And on Monday, the 9yo took out his piano book and started playing Phantom of the Opera which he had played for piano class last year.

Otherwise the weekend was the usual, with us trying to support local restaurants with takeout, doing some cycling (I jog while the kids cycle – I am not fond of jogging but ah well, I’m trying something to incorporate more exercise and get them out of the house sometimes).

Homemade waffles for breakfast





It’s my younger boy’s birthday this Friday so I’m guessing he’ll ask for burgers or pizza (probably both). So I’ll be making pizza probably and we can get burgers as takeout.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date



  1. Sounds like it was a nice Spring break even if you couldn’t go anywhere. I haven’t tried take out yet. I have been doing lots of cooking though. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. That first carry-out picture looks delish! I can’t wait til the weather gets a bit nicer around here. There’s still patches of snow on the ground from last night in Michigan 😦 Enjoy your week!


  3. Good on you for supporting your local restaurants. Having such a hard time these days! I’d like to read Samira Ahmed’s book too — it looks good to me. And, coincidentally, I’ve just started watching S3 of “The Good Fight” too. I’m so glad to be back in their company! I’m late commenting here, so whatever day it is when you read this, whatever week you’re in, I hope things are going well and you and yours are staying safe.


  4. Yes it’s good to support restaurants. My daughter brought her Switch home from Uni – what is their favourite game? I can play Animal Crossing but I am terrible at Minecraft.
