What I’ve been reading…

 

I have enjoyed reading some of my old favourites! I have read The Indian in the Cupboard to the key worker children I have been teaching – they loved it as much as I do. I have also re-read Northern Lights which I love. There has been a TV programme made about the story called ‘His Dark Materials’ which is good too. I managed to squeeze in some really thought provoking grown-up fiction books about what life could be like in the future too.

 

What I’ve been watching…

 

At the moment I’m really enjoying watching SAS: Celebrity Who Dares Wins (I think Joey Essex and Helen Skelton have done amazingly!) I’ve also watched the Great British Menu – where super talented chefs come up with weird and wonderful dishes that have to be linked to Children’s Literature. It was so good, there were dishes that linked to The BFG, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe (this chef turned it into The Potato, the Onion and the Wardrobe). One chef did a magical meal linked to Harry Potter too!

 

What I’ve been baking…

 

Since being in lockdown I have baked quite a lot (I was one of the lucky ones who managed to find some flour – good old Aldi!) I have made some tried and tested favourites like Chocolate Chip cookies that turned out HUGE, some brownies that had oreos in; others had mint areo pieces in (they were delicious). I also made a Victoria Sponge and some Scones for VE Day and shared them out with my neighbours J

 

Something new I have done…

 

Since eating lots of cookies, brownies and cakes (see my above comments) I have been trying to balance things out by keeping fit and doing lots of exercise! I have been doing the Joe Wicks Workout videos in the mornings as much as I can – some of them are really hard! I also got nominated for the 5K Running Challenge where you have to run 5 kilometres, donate £5 to the NHS and then nominate 5 more people to do the same. Since then I have been going for a few more 5K runs, which have been so nice in this lovely sunny weather!
