It wasn’t the half term any of us thought it would be back in March when we first went into lockdown – I’m pretty sure we ALL thought the pandemic would be over by now and being back to normal might be a possibility. Sadly that’s not been the case but at least here in Norfolk our numbers have been lower than lots of parts of the country and we have been afforded a tier one category meaning we can still go out and mix in groups of six. We feel lucky that this half term holiday we still got to see our pals from time to time and do some special day trips as well as our alternative to trick or treating with my Halloween themed murder mystery night. We also had the cousins over for a Halloween tea party and games so we feel very lucky indeed!
Wroxham Barns, Gressenhall, Sea Life Hunstanton, Algys Farm, Pleasure Beach Great Yarmouth, Roarr and lots more fun on days out as well as pumpkin carving and dressing up. It hasn’t been so bad for us we know. It has been different but we have had so much fun and now we are on the second half of the first term already – how can that be and you know me… Love the holidays and all that so roll on Christmas please and PLEASE let it be so that we can have more than 6 (or at least not include the children) for that holiday. Here’s hoping!
And then on Sunday we literally did nothing at all. Took Gram home after she’d stayed the night and went to the supermarket for a little pre lockdown panic buying (sigh) and then back to school Monday is here as if the holiday never was. Raffie started nursery today and I’ve just dropped him off after he didn’t get the memo about the first day front door pic, and despite his face he waved me off without a second glance. Just a “Bye Mummy”!
