Despite the ongoing Coronavirus crisis our week has been startling like normal. I think in part because it's been Daddy's first full week back at work so we've managed to get back into our 'before' routine.  We've been getting up, getting dressed and getting out the house just like we did in the pre-corona days. Obviously our activities have changed- there's no more play groups or music class but it's been nice to go to visit nannan and mama's houses and play in an environment that's not the same four walls.

This picture breaks my heart. Yesterday after handling money for a toll bridge Iris told me to put my hand gel on.  It makes me so proud yet so sad. I'm proud that she's learnt how to keep safe in these times but it makes me so sad that this is how she will remember the world. At 2 years old I don't think she'll remember what things were like before.

Covid- 19 Review | Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Visiting Yorkshire Wildlife Park Throughout Covid 19 Coronavirus  Katrina Over 30s UK blogger talking about parenting, autism, mental health, books and coeliac disease.

We've held annual passes to Yorkshire Wildlife Park for the last few years so it's a place we know well but due to the coronavirus pandemic it's undergone some changes recently to enable visitors to safely access the site. As someone with Aspergers I find comfort in familiarity and predictability so these changes  have been quite upsetting me for me even though I completely understand the need for them. I think all people, whether they have Aspergers or not, could do with some predictability right now so hopefully this review will help you understand some of the changes that have been made and help you assess whether visiting is right for you in the current climate.

So these posts are supposed to reflect childhood and as always I want to be an honest blogger so the gushing post about fathers day that I wanted to write is actually a post about the "I don't want you Daddy" phase that Iris is currently going through.

Now the lockdown has been lifted a little we've found ourselves getting out and about a bit more. In the early days of the quarantine we didn't venture out at all and with the lovely weather we had throughout May we were more than happy just playing in our garden but as time has gone on we've missed our visiting routine.

 I haven't written anything on the blog for a long time and the thing I have genuinely missed the most is these Living Arrows posts. It's so nice to take some time out to look over the pictures from the week and choose one that reflects Iris enjoying her childhood, now more than ever.
