Project Life Revisited | Weeks 29 and 30

Week 29: We spent a few more hours walking through the woods at Hughenden. We had an unexpected photo opportunity with Cachirulo and Los Pequeños. We were invited for socially-distanced drinks in a friend's garden and The Boy Child was invited to take a dip ... I made a flip card to record the story. … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 29 and 30

One Little Word | Pause – May and June 2020

It's only now, at the back end of July, that I've completed May and June's Pause pages. For May, I chose to record my birthday selfie - complete with a make up-free face and a nasty stye. I couldn't decide on patterned paper, so opted to go without. I blew the dust of a few … Continue reading One Little Word | Pause – May and June 2020

Luckily for them and us, they moved house just 2 weeks before lockdown began and now have a much bigger garden. One that can easily cope with a socially-distanced family get-together. It … Continue reading Life in Lockdown | Family Favourites

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 23 and 24

Week 23: I received a bouquet of belated-birthday-flowers from friends. We were able to book a visit to beautiful Waddesdon Manor. Week 24: Tilly had an appointment at the dog groomer. We walked up to school to collect some Maths books and it was great to see some of the staff in person. The highlight … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 23 and 24

Life in Lockdown | Life on Hold

I think we're into Week 12 of Lockdown ... but as the weeks are all blurring into each other, I can't say for sure. But I do know that a quarter of 2020 has been put on hold. Life, as we know it, is in suspended animation. The world is still turning. The sun is … Continue reading Life in Lockdown | Life on Hold
