        'You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth' Khalil Gibran.

Another half term over and done with and the first week of June has been and gone. I say it a lot but isn't time flying? I don't know how we are 6 months into the year, it's gone by in a blur. Iris spent 3 nights at my Mum and Step Dad's caravan so Daddy and I had 3 child free days. Daddy went to work and in our spare time we went to B&Q. We know how to live. 

Iris had a great time at the van. There is another family that visits at the same time so Iris got to play with people her own age. They went to the park, the beach, the rides and the arcades. There were fish and chips, donkey rides and ice creams galore. She's told me every single thing in the most minute detail- I even know what colour cup she and her friends had their drinks in. She had the most wonderful time and I am so thankful that things are resembling normal and she gets to spend time with family and gets to try new things. We're still following the guidance on masks, handwashing and physical distance plus we're testing regularly. If things have to stay this way then to be honest I'm happy.

  1. It must be so lovely to have a caravan in the family. And yep, the months are flying by! x

  2. It sounds like Iris had a wonderful time with her grandparents, and I bet a few child free days were lovely for you too!

  3. How wonderful that she described her holiday so beautifully! I hope you enjoyed some time together? x

  4. Ahh it sounds like an amazing break for her. So lovely that she remembered so much about it and told you - I can never get the info out my boys! I hope you have been enjoying the good weather.

  5. I don't know how we're halfway through June already - madness!
