Friday's Fave Five - 2/4/21


Woo hoo!  It's Friday and I'm here on time! Thanks to our lovely host Susanne (check her out here) for keeping us on track each week.  It's good to look back on the good things from the week.

Here are my 5 faves of the week:

1)  Restrictions have started to ease - from last Monday we have been able to meet up in a group of 6 (or 2 families) outdoors.  Further easings are due to happen over the next couple of months provided cases/hospitilisations etc stay low.

2)   Someone had a birthday this week!

 I can't believe Nathan is 4!  I still remember the day he was born.  He's come such a long way since his very early arrival.

It was a 2nd lockdown birthday but he still had a good time.  Hopefully next year will be more normal.

3)  Following the easing of restrictions I took my DIL and the two grandsons Rory & Vinny over to my daughter's house on Wednesday so they could play in the garden.  The weather had been gorgeous on Tuesday, sunny and really warm.  It was a bit disappointing on Thursday as although it was still fairly warm the sun was hidden behind clouds.  But at least that meant the Mummies didn't have to worry about applying sunscreen on wriggling toddlers.

They were so excited to see each other.  They've met a few times in a park but not at home for a long time.

4)  Our son tested negative for Covid.  He hadn't been feeling well this week and yesterday he was running a slight temperature so he thought it would be best to get tested.  The result came back negative this morning so we all breathed a sigh of relief.

5)  We had a nice video chat with hubby's siblings yesterday.  Always good to catch up. 

We're planning a quiet weekend - hubby has a heavy cold at the moment so he's feeling sorry for himself and needs TLC.  They've also forecast much colder weather, even the possibility of snow!

Happy Easter everyone.


  1. Looks like a good week. So glad that your lockdown restrictions are easing a bit. Your grandsons are so cute. It's great that you could get together for a birthday dinner! Have a very Happy Easter weekend!

  2. How can Nathan be 4 already?!! Gosh, I remember the excitement of waiting for him to be born. Hope hubby is feeling better! Bah-humbug on snow for Easter! The kiddos are so cute, Wendy! So great that you could get them together! xo

    1. Thanks Terri. Nick's cold is definitely easing.

  3. Good news about your son testing negative. In February, my son also tested negative, although his wife and the rest of the family were positive. But everyone recovered, fortunately. A negative test result is something to celebrate.
    What fun for the cousins to be together! We all hope things will loosen up soon.
    Happy Happy Easter to you and yours!

    1. Thank you. I'm looking forward to the next easing - April 12th non-essential shops can open and I'll be able to get a hair cut!

  4. Happy Easter!
    Thankful news regarding your son!! I enjoyed the photos Wendy, they make me smile.

    1. Thanks Carla. Happy Easter to you too.

  5. Happy Birthday to your adorable little dinosaur! Glad your restrictions are easing a bit. So nice to be able to get together with loved ones. We are allowed to be with up to 10 outside as long as distance is maintained but still can't have anyone other than our own household inside. So glad your son tested negative. Happy Easter to you and your family!

  6. How cute the grandboys are!! Glad your restrictions are lifting up!! I feel like if you wear a mask and continue to watch your personal hygiene and don't go around people who are ill with upper respiratory symptoms, then we can pretty much do anything! I certainly haven't let this pandemic stop me! I just keep a good supply of masks cleaned and ready!

    Here we can gather in small groups anywhere but in restaurants you still have to have separate tables. We stayed home for Easter year we will go out!

    Have a lovely week!
