Usually by November each year, I have the whole next year planned out… as far as racing, travel and how I’ll use all my holiday days is concerned anyway. Last November we were on our honeymoon gallivanting around Philippines, Vietnam and Laos thinking that this year, we’d be racing the Manchester Marathon, traveling to Miami for Alexandra’s Bachelorette, Saint Petersburg over Easter, home for Patrick and Alexandra’s wedding, a birthday surprise for my Mom’s 60th in August, and a reserve of holiday days saved to move house.
Race – Home – Travel – Buy a house. That was the 2020 plan. But as we all know, 2020 had different plans for us all.
On March 13th we started working from home full time. On March 23rd, England declared a nationwide lockdown which had all non-essential business close. There was limited ability to socialize/get out of the house all the way up until the 4th of July.
As many people did with so much time at home – we cooked/baked/ate our way through it. So, here are my favourite food moments during lockdown!
