Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 5

To be honest, I'd rather forgotten about the Covid-19 journal ... however, now that we have a semblance of normality in our lives with The Boy Child back at school, I've picked it up again.

Life in Lockdown | Northern Roadtrip – Ulverston

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
