#MySundaySnapshot – Flutterby Summer 30/52 (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. 

I feel very much like a butterfly at present – I’m forever flitting here, there and everywhere doing a bit of this, a bit of that, and a bit of the other…

#MySundaySnapshot - Flutterby Summer 30/52 (2020)

There is always something to be worked at or something to be doing, whether it’s dusting, vacuuming, washing the pots, folding the laundry, tidying cupboards, sorting through the wardrobes or writing reviews – it’s all go!

I’m trying to do all sorts of stuff around the house whilst also keeping the kids entertained – this really isn’t easy at present given that our little lady seems to want our attention every minute of every hour of everyday… I think lockdown has made her a little needy, either that or my fuse is running a little short.

If I’m not at home then I’m either dashing out to Dad to offer my help or I’m scurrying to the shops to fetch yet more supplies. 

It doesn’t feel much like a summer holiday at present and whilst I’m aware that it’s the same for almost everyone, it doesn’t stop me wishing that we could enjoy a week in the sun somewhere. Oh to laze on a sun lounger with a cocktail in my sticky mits… not this year sadly!

Given that we are in the midst of a pandemic, travel isn’t really an option nor a priority and I’m sick to the back teeth of seeing happy snaps being shared by the masses from their trips out to theme parks and such-like. Don’t they understand how dangerous this virus is?! It’s all very well getting back to work and cracking on with life as normal but NOTHING IS NORMAL right now, people are still dieing due to this virus, and whilst the numbers may be dropping it’s not enough to warrant complacency.

Don’t get me wrong – I’d love to take the kids out for a jolly to some attractions around the UK but I’m just not willing to risk their lives for the sake of a few hours of fun. Though I’m sick of being stuck spending 247 in the same four walls watching summer flutter by, I’d rather the kids were bored sick than desperately sick with this vicious virus and so we will continue to keep safe and to stay at home.

Oh to be off out and about and to fly free, oh to be a butterfly…

Thanks for reading my #MySundaySnapshot post, I look forward to catching up and sharing your #MySundaySnapshot pictures either through your own posts, social media shares or comments upon this post.

    What a gorgeous butterfly. I use butterflies on my blog to represent my family members, there are seven on my header, and seven members in my household. I wish we could be free too, but like you we are taking this virus very seriously. Our holiday is cancelled, but we do have some very special days out planned where social distancing is going to be easy. Take care x

    It sounds like you are busy at the moment. We are feeling the same about visiting places. We’re staying close to home and not really going anywhere apart from my dad’s or to the local park.
    What a pretty butterfly. I can never seem to snap one, they never stay still long enough for me. x
