It's been a month since we hava all been in lockdown. We've been keeping ourselves busy however it's definitely hard not knowing when we will be able to see family again. Blake's finding the lockdown especially hard as he just loves being outside and has really been missing school a lot.

Here are my likes and loves for April:


I decided to purchase Hop on digital download for us to watch around Easter. I've never actually seen it before but it's certainly a film we will be watching every Easter time now.

Frozen 1 and 2 
Again this was via digital download on Amazon Prime . I had only seen Frozen once before but wanted to watch it again before the second one. If you have seen both films I'd love to know which is your favourite? I liked the second one so much more.

A Quiet Place

I spotted this on Netflix and decided to give it a watch. It's about the Abbott family and how they must now face the terrors of the outside world as they fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

Carnival Row
Whilst browsing on prime tv I spotted carnival row and really got into it. It is only one season and I raced through it. It's about A growing population of mythological immigrant creatures that struggle to coexist with humans after the creatures' exotic homelands are invaded by the empires of man. The creatures are forbidden to live, love or fly with freedom, but hope lives in darkness. Human detective Rycroft "Philo" Philostrate and a refugee faerie, Vignette Stonemoss, rekindle a dangerous affair despite being in an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette has a secret that endangers Philo's world during his most important case yet -- a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.

Killing Eve
I've no idea why I've not watched it until now. I've binge watched season 1 in a day and am now starting season 2.  If you've not watched any episodes yet you can find them on BBC Iplayer.


We've been doing more crafts at home since lockdown to keep us busy.

We have joined in with adding a rainbow to our window and during easter we did a rainbow egg to add too. We used Little Brian paint sticks which we absolutely love! 

Egg shaped crafts

We have quite a few foam egg shapes so we got out some other bits in our craft box and Blake and I made a chic, super egg and a bunny. 

Fairy Garden 
My mum got this fairy garden for Blake last Easter and we only just got around to using it!  We love that it's a great way to get Blake into gardening and he loves that it also plays music! 

Painting stones

We had a kit I purchased last summer to put away as an activity when boredom hits and glad I did. Blake and I loved doing this activity together. I'm planning to have them out in our garden for decorative purposes but want to find more stones so we can do more to leave when out on walks. 


Sand and Water Tray
We've purchased quite a few things during lockdown to keep Blake entertained and our all time favourite is this clear sand and water tray. We use it on the ground but you can have it on a table and you can buy one with a stand but it does cost a significantly lot more. 

Stick Man toy
Blake loves collecting sticks when we are out walking so one of his Easter gifts for him was this cuddly stick man. He adores it and has even been watching stick man on prime alot.

Autism quote plaque
I've shared a review recently of this autism quote plaque by Edwinas Pyro Creations. I absolutely love it and the quote means alot to us.


I'm getting back into art as I've not been doing much of it for a good few months now. This is one of my recent sketches that I have done.
