This week has been half term, and for us it’s been a very lazy half term! The twiglets had been back at school for a few weeks so were keen to have a break. And what with rubbish weather and lockdown, we have done very little this week!
Half term in lockdown
We don’t usually tend to plan out the holidays too much – especially not when it’s just a week’s half term. Saying that, we would normally have some ideas of places to go and things to do. But what with lockdown, we’ve been restricted to the same local walks we’ve been doing the past few months. I’m super grateful that we have a large park down the road from us! But it is getting a bit tedious going to the same place all the time, or just wandering round the block!
I’m really missing visiting all the National Trust properties around Surrey, like Cliveden House. All of them are at least half an hour’s drive from us so I don’t really feel comfortable going to them with the lockdown restrictions. I know a lot of people are just doing it anyway, but we’ve followed all the rules so far so I don’t see the point of stopping now.
But the weather’s been pretty pants this week anyway – so much rain! We’ve had a few rainy scoots down to the local playground but that’s really about it!
The twiglets seem to have been pretty happy staying in. We’ve played some games and done some crafting and baking. And they’ve had a lot of screen time too!
I bought a teepee from Asda for £30 as our sofa is getting absolutely wrecked from the twigs making dens out of the cushions. They absolutely love it and have been enjoying getting all cosy inside it.
So this week’s Living Arrows photos are of the twigs inside their rainbow den – think it definitely needs some fairy lights! 🙂

I hope you’ve had a good half term – has it been as lazy as ours?!
Til next time,
