Mummy and Me – May 2020
Another year where I try to get out from behind my camera and capture moments with my son. A challenging month for everyone as we deal with Coronavirus. A month where we could eventually leave the house for longer than an hour and travel anywhere in England but decided to still stay close to home.
The week we celebrated the 75th anniversary of VE Day at home. As you can see Paddington slept through most of it.
We had lots of sunshine this week and made the most of it by exploring more footpaths from our doorstep.
School at home whilst working has continued to be a nightmare really but we’ve done what we can and just accepted that something is better than nothing.
We ended the week with a walk that saw us taking a break almost next door to where we’d had our NCT classes back in October and November 2009! So we’d brought my son full circle, from bump to ten-year-old boy.
More sunshine and ice lollies were definitely the order of the day.
At the end of the week, we drove out of our town for the first time in over two months. We didn’t go far, just to a nature reserve close to home but it felt like leaving the country. It’s also the first time I’d taken my DSLR camera anywhere in all that time too. Clearly I like wearing the same top on Sundays!
I had the week off and it was the first time I’d driven out of our town myself. We got to explore some old favourites and have a couple of new adventures and life felt a bit more normal for a few days.
We also spent time at home and got the paddling pool out, only to discover that it’s got a puncture somewhere in the bottom ring.
Have you got out from behind the camera and recorded moments with your children this month?
