Not so much a sequel to the previous blog... more like
"a peek (through the camera) of our precious moments".
Andy and I were thrilled to share many wonderful moments with the family over the past three months. We stayed with Gordon, Lianne, Murphy and Rosie for the first two months and then Kenneth came out to join us and Andy and I moved into an airbnb with Kenneth for the last month of our stay.
We received many wonderful gifts, and not just from Santa. There was the gift of time spent together. The gift of laughter. The gift of play. However there was also an unwelcome gift of Covid.
Lianne became unwell on Christmas eve, and was ill on Christmas. Boxing day Kenneth succumbed, me the next day, then Andy followed the day after that and eventually Gordon developed symptoms and we all tested positive.
I like looking at the positive aspects of things however the only positive thing I could see about Covid was my enforced leisure as I slept round the clock!
Now we are through it and looking back on all our precious moments, even more precious now...
Here are Murphy and Rosie having fun in the rain. Children can teach us a thing or two about having fun. Muddy puddles being an essential factor.
I invested in welly boots for the rain and furry boots for the cold...
As you travel through the photo album, that is this blog's offering you will notice that togetherness is the theme, with different combos at different times.
