Well, another week over! I feel like it’s just going to continue getting harder and harder to find anything to write about each week!! As I mentioned in last week’s Living Arrows post, every day just feels like Groundhog Day at the moment! So this week has just been more of the same – more homeschooling and more lockdown walks!

More lockdown walks

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Kahlil Gibran

There wasn’t much novelty value with the homeschooling this time round anyway. But whatever there was, has most definitely worn off! We’re plodding along, taking each day at a time. And the twiglets are doing really well to be fair! But it does just feel like a bit of a never-ending cycle of Teams calls and schoolwork!

It’s still tricky finding much time for getting out in the fresh air during the week. As part of their school timetable, the twigs have Wednesday afternoons off. They call it Wellbeing Wednesday which is quite sweet. So this will be a good time for us to get out for a bit longer. Of course, last Wednesday afternoon it was absolutely chucking it down! Hopefully next week!

Other than that, the other half has been taking H and C for a quick walk/run over lunchtime which has worked quite well. And also given me a bit of space for ten minutes!

And we’ve been getting out at the weekends – obviously nowhere far! It’s a little confusing as we’d love to go to a National Trust property for a walk, and they are open. But we don’t have one in our local town/area so we haven’t as I don’t think it’s really allowed?

Anyway we’ve managed to get out locally. On Sunday I took the twigs to Horton Country Park. We had a lovely walk, and they even got photobombed by a horse which was quite amusing! 🙂

Lockdown walks

Hope everyone’s managed to have a good week! See you next week for no doubt more of exactly the same – homeschooling and lockdown walks!! 😛

Til next time,

      Thank you so much! 🙂

  3. Every time I see families on walks I feel bad that we barely leave the house! Both kids have so much work to do that we don’t get time during the week. We did get out in the snow today though! x

      No it’s so intense isn’t it! Hope you had fun x

  4. We’re so bored of our around the block and farmers fields behind us. Today we drove just outside our village to get a different bloody view! I know I sound ungrateful considering some people live in inner cities but it is just boring! #livingarrows

    We are struggling to get outside too during the week normally only making a Friday. I am also really confused about what is allowed and what isn’t. So we are probably doing very little because I don’t want to break the rules!

  6. I know how you feel, every day is just the same at the moment and we’re struggling to get out much during the week too. I hope you had a good week – and just think, we’re half way to half term now!
