Transcript of MumDeeDoes video #16:
Hello my Darlings and welcome to Mum Dee Does. I am Dee, a mum who does it all and today we are doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that...
And the reason for that is that I've been working on something special. I have a special vlog in mind and it's taken a long time for me to finish it but it's gonna be worth the wait and in the meantime…
This video is coming out on the 11th of November which is the Armistice or Remembrance Day and I think it's a very important day to commemorate and remember, to celebrate our brave British Armed Forces Heroes who selflessly put their lives on the line as well as their families’ well-being to protect our lives, our values, our way of life and everything that's important to us.
We have a lot to thank for the previous generation who have kept us safe. I dread to think how our lives would be if the events of the mid-20th century had turned out differently and I, for one, am extremely grateful that we live in the times when we can freely express ourselves, our views, our opinions when we can be who we really are. And all of those things, and more, is something that we all should be thankful for.
It really infuriates me when I see comments like this… (I really should go on twitter less!) But I just wanted to make my position about it very clear: soldiers are not State’s “puppets”, they are brave men and women, heroes who pick us up in our time of need. Just look at the recent events where a lot of the key workers could not attend their workplace because of the Covid restrictions, it was the military that stepped in to make sure that the supply chain remains unaffected.
It is also worth remembering that the military do a lot of the humanitarian aid in the world. The good guys to turn up and to help out… It's like the superheroes in films who are there when you need them. But I've also made a donation to the British Legion and I'm very proud to display the poppy!
My two-year-old toddler and I will be making some simple bread.
Making bread is a proper science experiment, so it changes its physical state and it's very exciting, and obviously it's really fun. So as well as teaching Ronnie some life skills this is also a bit of a homeschooling project for a two-year-old.
I admit I was worried that it might be a bit heavy because of all the oats that went into it, but actually eating it - it's not dense at all, it's risen quite well. And it was really good fun to make this with Ronnie, it's very easy, very simple: getting your hands nice and floury, and dirty, and doughy and it's really delicious! I'm very proud of Ronnie who's baked this bread for us. Thank you very much Ron!
Mind your fingers, I'm closing the door.
Oh, big wheels! Wave, wave, wave!
Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap! Slide! Wheeeeee!
Pull. Nom. Nom?
We're doing a spot of gardening, trying to clean up the courtyard ready for winter. And all the soil came out of the potato grow bags and so there are a lot of worms that we're finding and we're going to give them all to the chickens. Chickens!
So James has gone into town this morning for his final injections before he goes away with the RFA and I had written the day off thinking we're just gonna take it easy, watch some cartoons… But then a friend of mine here on Eday contacted us saying “wel,l because it is a nice day would you like a playdate?” and I suggested they all come here to our field, so we're all set up...
We're going home to have a toffee apple treaty that the Sanday shop has sent - How amazing! I don't think Ronnie has had a toffee apple before...
Really? So that's what you've just seen? Cuddles!
