So the summer holidays have finally arrived but as we’ve been living in lockdown for the past five months, it doesn’t feel any different…
Having spent this afternoon clearing the cupboards, I’ve now organised all the kids’ toys, books, games, and crafting supplies, I’ve also bagged up all of J’s outdated-school-uniform and his wardrobes are now clean and ready for his brand new senior school uniform which should be arriving in the next few weeks.
I plan to do similar in E’s room later this week as I want to sort space ready for her upcoming birthday gifts and at some point, I really ought to go up into the attic and to sort through the piles of keepsakes which I suspect may become bin-fodder as I cannot cope with hoarding.
Having got the house semi-sorted, E then insisted that I took a break and should paint her nails, paint her face, and give her a glitter tattoo and why not?!
J seems to be spending most of his time bouncing around on the trampoline – I’d love to send him out on his bike but I’m just so worried about his safety given that we are still in the midst of a pandemic.
Our Bouncing Boy
Thankfully we are managing to keep the kids entertained for the time being but I’d love to take them for a day out, it’s just how and where? I’ve seen so many pictures of people taking their kids for days out to local attractions and theme parks and I feel somewhat guilty for not doing likewise but… surely it’s too early yet?
Thank you for reading and as always, I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
