Life Sparkles

A Random Weekend

After many months apart due to Covid-19, we formed our bubble in early August. Himself is shielding his Mom and so we have to be very careful with our contacts which is why I have barely come out of lockdown myself. Earlier this month he was able to take a break and he spent the weekend with me. We ate junk food, drank wine, watched films and as the weather was great we had a very long walk. It was such a happy and wonderful weekend. These are things we took for granted before the pandemic, now these are treasured, special, magical times.

Himself does make the best pancakes…I had the blueberry one.

Beautiful afternoon for a very long walk, I ached. It’s been a long time since I walked 9 miles.

It was such a simple, happy and sparkling weekend. It was so good to spend some time together not working, not in a caring role, not carrying out domestic duties, but real quality time where we just had to concentrate on ourseleves. No plans, no stress, no deadlines. Just time to relax and just be. One of the many lessons I have learned over the past two years is to value the small things, take time to enjoy the simple things and to spend time with loved ones when you can. It could be some time before we get this opportunity again, it was over in a flash and yet we felt refreshed and ready to tackle the world again.

With love and sparkles xx

  1. Dawn, this was absolutely beautiful! Those photographs from your walk were stunning. I can only imagine how much of a refreshing time it must have been for you both. Those pancakes look pretty stunning too, ha ha! πŸ˜‰

    It’s true, we really do take the simple things in life for granted – as well as those we love and all they do to show us their love. Covid-19 has created a moment of pause where we are forced to feel gratitude to those simple blessings again. In this way, Covid has been a blessing, even though it has also brought much pain.

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful weekend with all of us. Your heart is beautiful and it’s wonderful to read your thoughts. πŸ’• Holly
