This Year Has Been Tough

This last year has been tough for us all, whether young or old its been hard! I count me and Charlie lucky – as its just me and him, we’ve been able to see my parents as they’ve been our support bubble throughout (plus I / mummy have had the ponies to care for at my parents house). For others, not so lucky and have only been able to start seeing friends and family in the last few days / weeks.

Charlie’s favourite memory has been spending time with his Granny and Pappy over the lockdown and going on bike rides with his pappy.

Things are starting to look up, slowly but surely things are opening up – Charlie has been so much happier since being back at school. We’re still a long way from being back to “normal”, but we’re getting there.

One positive thing about this last year is that we have made just as many memories at home as we would have done being out and about.

We have got into a routine of having a Saturday night take away – whether it’s supporting a small, local independent business or getting a KFC (of similar).

On a few occasions we have had an awesome take away afternoon tea from a local café called Mint Café (Sawbridgeworth), once it even made it up to Warwick Castle when we went to meet my (mummy’s) second cousin and her children – this is her Instagram Pages One Abbey Lane & 7 Abbey Lane

Carrying on from the one above, lockdown and the power of Zoom brought some our family closer together. During Lockdown 2020 – Charlie along with his Cousin in the States and my second cousin’s girls in Warwickshire did a daily Reading and Art club via Zoom (Art was with the help of Granny Patty)

I have started to do more baking & be more adventurous with different meals, head over to my Instagram page to see some of the photo’s of my bakes

These are just a few of my good memories, here are some of our photos from the last year
