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.

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.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Crafty Kids

Our little lady is so crafty and not just in the arty way. She loves nothing more than having a project to work upon, especially so if it results in creating something which she can use or display.

During the early days of lockdown, E became really interested in using Hama beads to create various shapes and animals, which we then ironed and she hung in her window. E has since made a variety of rainbows which she has given to grandparents and family as gifts and this week she made her very own rainbow coaster!

Whilst E has been a busy bee creating her rainbows and coaster, J meanwhile has created his very own animated cartoon!…

I know it’s a bit British of me to complain but this week was so hot, wasn’t it? We had planned to carry out our very own ‘homeschool’ sports day on Thursday but with temperatures over thirty-odd degrees, there was no chance anyone was running anything other than the hosepipe!

Don’t get me wrong, I love the hot weather but sadly my skin doesn’t feel the same way, thus I spend most of the summer sat under a parasol daubed in factor fifty.…

#LittleLoves – June 2020

Where on earth is the time going to of late?  It’s the last Friday of June already and here we are once again reflecting upon some of the brighter moments from the month gone by.


I’ve spent the past month with my nose firmly wedged between the cover of many books and as mentioned last month – I downloaded some sample copies (the first few chapters) of Melissa Cynova’s ‘Kitchen Table Tarot’, Michelle Tea’s ‘Modern Tarot’ and Bakara Wintner’s ‘WTF Is Tarot & How Do I Do It?’, all of which I’ve since purchased and have read from cover to cover.…
