Fathers Day {The Ordinary Moments}

Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.

Fathers day for us is usually spent having a barbecue with family, enjoying time together and relaxing whilst taking time to appreciate the Dads in our life. This year is a bit different though so we popped to see Dave’s parents yesterday and will be spending today together, just the four of us.

I haven’t felt like I can fully relax around people outside of our family bubble yet. I’m still very conscious of the 2m requirement, the maximum of 6 people rule and I know we are safest when we just stay at home. So that is how we’re spending Fathers Day this year.

I’ve organised afternoon tea for our lunch, we’ll watch movies, spend time in the garden and enjoy a slow day just the four of us. It’s pretty much how we spent Mothers Day too!

I’m trying to focus on the positives at the moment and one of those is having so much time together as a family. It’s something we all really appreciate and all really make the most of too.

I think when coronavirus is just a memory we will still be relishing quiet weekends. I don’t feel in any rush to get back to a busy life full of activity at the moment.

The Ordinary Moments

  1. It sounds like you all had a nice Father’s Day at home. I totally get the nice slow weekends when life does get back to normal. This has really shown all of us how much slower life can be!

  2. I too am very nervous around people and still mentally measure 2m in my mind almost everywhere I go. Lovely pictures Donna – I agree with you though, even once covid 19 is a distant memory I will still relish in our quiet time as a family.
