The 11th Week | Living Arrows 22/52

The last time I joined in with Living Arrows was week 8 and although I am sad that I have missed out on posting photographs for the past 3 months, I just haven't felt like coming on here at all since lockdown. We were thrown into a very strange situation and although it was weird and scary I have absolutely loved spending so much time with the boys. I've took hundreds of photos and videos each day to document our 'lockdown lives' but now as we head in to the 11th week I think normality has started to creep in. Lockdown is easing and schools and businesses are returning. I said last week that whether or not you think it is the right time to go back to school that is such a personal decision, if I had my way I would keep the boys at home with me forever.

First we went to the waterfront. It was so nice to breathe in some fresh sea air. I have missed that so much and I have always took for granted how easy it was for us to pop to the Liverpool waterfront on a sunny day.  The excitement on little J's face when he saw the ice cream van. He would live on ice cream if he could and whilst I was nervous to get him one I couldn't resist his little face looking at us hoping we would say yes. He absolutely enjoyed every single spoonful and just sat eating watching the waves in the dock.

Living Arrows


  1. We've just started venturing out for more family walks, in preparation for my daughter going back to Nursery tomorrow!

    Have a great week x

    1. It's quite scary isn't it but I know we have to get back to some kind of normality soon.

  2. We've also started venturing out a bit more but I do feel super anxious about it! Hard to find quiet places! Sounds like you had a lovely time :) #livingarrows

  3. We went on our first real day out today, I haven't felt able to until now. I really agree that with everything at the moment we all just need to do what works for us x

  4. We went out for the first time last week too. It seems so strange to go out again doesn't it?


Thanks for your comments. I love reading them :)
