What I loved in March 2021.

I have said this every month for months but time seems to be flying over. March went in a blink of an eye. It was a good month. Lots of positive things happening but it is hard to find new things to love when nothing much has changed in our lives. We have still mostly being staying home and doing much of the same things.

What I loved

This is what I loved in March.

My family being vaccinated.
My dad, his partner, my great aunt, my fella Stu and Becky my eldest have all been vaccinated against Covid and I am getting my jab on Saturday. I feel like we're all a little safer from being seriously ill. We won't be changing how we've been living for the last year. We will still be staying home as much as we can and staying away from others but I do feel happier that everyone I care about is a little safer.

Desperate Housewives on Star on Disney+.
I watched it about 15 years ago when it was on TV and it turns out I have forgotten so much about it like the fact that John Barrowman was in it for a few episodes as a bad guy. lol It is such a great show. There are about 20 episodes per series and there are 8 of them so it's taken me a while to get through which is a good thing as it's kept my busy but I am onto the last series now. It's got comedy, drama and mystery, even Becky has been watching it.

A close-knit group of housewives reside in Wisteria Lane. It may appear to be a seemingly perfect neighbourhood but it hides many secrets, crimes, forbidden romances and domestic struggles.

The new season of Fortnite.
It's the first time I have played Fortnite when a new season has started. They make a new map and reset everyone to level one which sounds a bit rubbish for everyone at a high level but great for me because now I know how to play I started off equal to Stu and my girls. hehehe It has taken a bit of getting used to the changes but I feel like I have got the hang of it now.

Back to school & College.
The girls finally went back to school and college and it has gone well. Ellie loves school and finds the learning much easier there rather than at home. She has been busy choosing her GCSE options and finally settled on Business, Engineering and Geography. Becky was glad to get back to college, she's only there one day a week at the moment but she enjoyed seeing her friends and being out of the house.

Getting a new back door.
It may seem like a small thing but getting our old wooden door replaced has made such a difference. The kitchen is so much warmer and thankfully there is no more rain coming in. The landlord is now on about changing the window in the kitchen for a smaller one. The one at the moment is about 8 or 9 foot wide and there is just no need for it.

Mother's Day.
Mother's day might be my favourite day of the year. I think it even beats my birthday. hehehe The kids spoilt me rotten this year. I got quite a few presents and they waited on me hand and foot. The highlight of my day was getting an Indian takeaway. I haven't had one since we lived in Northumberland nearly 2 years ago so it was a real treat.

What did you love in March?


  1. I began re-watching Desperate Housewives too! I'm amazed at how much I forgot!

  2. The husband and I loved Desperate Housewives! Most of it was on before we had children I think, when we had much more time to watch TV. I'd love to watch it all again but I'm not sure I've got the stamina! So glad that you are all (nearly!) vaccinated, it must definitely be a relief. A lot of my family has been, including my husband, and although I'm still waiting for mine hopefully it won't be too much longer now.

  3. I'm glad you got some normality back with the return of collage and school. X
