#LivingArrows – Not So Normal’s Not So Bad 27/52 (2020)

I can’t even count how many weeks we’ve spent living in lockdown at this point in time. When the lockdown malarkey was first suggested and brought into action, I worried for the children that time would drag, yet in reality, it’s entirely the opposite.

I’m not sure about you but I’m never quite sure as to what day of the week we are on nevermind what the date happens to be, I’m doing quite well with keeping track of the months though and even those seem to fly by in the blink of an eye.

With less than a fortnight to go before the children officially finish ‘school’ (or should I say home school) for the summer holidays, it’s suddenly hit me just how much time has gone by since things were ‘normal’.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – The Switch Share

When the going gets tough, the tough get …gaming? At least that’s the excuse that I’m choosing to use for my recent online-shopping splurge!

This time last year my son had saved his pennies up and was desperate for the summer holidays to arrive so that we would finally allow him to splash out on a brand new Nintendo Switch. Since his purchase, I can honestly say that it has been one of the most well-used consoles that I have ever seen in this household. I can actually say hand on heart that the Switch has been more than worth its price tag as it is so well-loved and used.…

#MySundaySnapshot – A Filtered View Point 27/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Given that we are each unique, I have a theory that we each view the world very differently, whether that’s due to having a different opinion, a different mindset, or perhaps even a different vision as in optical vision. 

I know that most of us can point to a particular colour and identify it by its name but are we truly seeing the same colour?…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in June 2020

Here we are, halfway through the year from hell – what I’d do to wake up one morning and to discover that the past six months have been nothing but a nightmare, sadly that’s not the case and so I continue to try and look at the lighter side of things. So without further ado, here are some of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout June.

Fun In The Sun

Every now and then (like once in a blue moon) us Northerners get to see the yellowy-orangy ball in the sky and though it’s often hidden behind a cloud, this week there were no clouds to be seen and the temperature shot up to a whopping thirty-something-degrees, leaving us with no other option other than to laze around like Brits abroad.…

#LivingArrows – Hot Hot Hot 26/52 (2020)

Talk about hot weather, it was absolutely SCORCHIO last week and despite having a full day of homeschool planned and at the ready, we decided to ditch studying in favour of some fun in the sun.

It was so hot that despite having the pool, the parasol, and all the summer stuff out we could only bare to brave the heat for a couple of hours before coming in for some shade.

Fun In The Sun

Even by the evening, the temperature was still above thirty degrees (celsius) and we spent the night tossing and turning with the windows wide open.…
