  • It's been such a busy day yesterday. A morning home working with a dash of homeschooling and then an afternoon doing not only our first food shop of the epidemic but also one for my brother who is on the NHS special care list.

We've been in such a bubble in our little self contained family in our small rural village, that a venture back into the wider world was a shock to the system. The silver lining was being able to take his dog for a lovely quiet walk.

How has your week been so far? Safe I hope.
  • If you'd have told me a few months ago the highlight of our day would have been a walk to the post box then I'd have probably have laughed. What times we're living in eh?

We picked these treasures on our way home and swipe for a little look at what the Bear made with them. It's at times like this that I'm so happy my children inherited my love of crafts!!
  • Today we headed outside for the first time in a week. We're incredibly lucky to live in a rural village so we have an abundance of green spaces just outside our front door.

The kids took their bikes and scooters and I took my camera. With the sun shining it was exactly what this mama needed. Happy Friday everyone!!
  • Feeling thankful. The sun has been shining making the back garden a mini oasis.

That's not all though, as hubby started his furlough leave today. While we're a little wobbly on what the future will hold financially if this goes on too long, I'm relieved to have all my bears happy and healthy under one roof.

Sending love to front line key workers who are risking their health to keep this country going at the moment.
