Hi there, Steven here.
What a week it’s been! Where did the time go? I hope you’ve all enjoyed our day-trips and managed to catch up with your doodling and colouring this week, ready for more time in the SHAC Shack with Barbara, next week.
We’ll be there at 10am every weekday for more of the same, starting from tomorrow.
I hope you are happy with the amazing artwork you’ve created, learning a thing or two along the way, whilst keeping each other company during these challenging times. Challenging, indeed!
But as Barbara says, this too shall pass.
This week, with the restrictions being relaxed it’s so lovely to begin to see loved ones. My daughter, Freya, is now 10 months old and it seemed so long ago since any of our family had a chance to spend quality time with her. Whilst modern technology allows us to stay connected, it’s just not the same as spending quality time with the ones you love. I’m sure a lot of you remember or know, but a baby can change so much in such a small space of time.
So, this week my Mum FINALLY had a chance to cuddle her and interact with her. We invited her over to come and sit in the garden with us – the first time since March! It was such a beautiful moment, but a stern reminder of how important it is to cherish those moments. Since lockdown, Freya has learnt to sit up from a laying down position, crawl and is now taking her first steps. Not only that, but she also interacts a lot more, such as waving, clapping, playing peek-a-boo and so much more.
I thought I’d share this little moment with you because I’m sure we can all relate to this. The pandemic has affected us all in different ways but we made it this far TOGETHER. The community spirit has kept us going. For this reason, I’m feeling grateful and thankful. I’m sure many of you have some wonderful re-united stories and we’d love to hear them if you’re happy to share them with us. Feel free to leave a comment below.
Well, that’s it from me today. I’ll speak to all you again next week!
Bye for now.
Clarity Matters. It really does.
