June was another busy month – hence being late yet again with sharing my ‘Me and Mine’ photo and the fact that it’s another quickly snapped shot in the garden! It’s been one of those months with lots of activities and the feeling of juggling a few too many balls (although they’re mostly staying in the air so far!)
We’ve taken part in #30DaysWild each June for the past five years. This year, I have to admit it was a bit half-hearted as I didn’t really have the time and energy to plan any specific wild activities as I have done in the past although we did spend plenty of time outside thanks to trying to keep on track with our #1000hoursoutside challenge.
It’s been quite nice having lots of activities to enjoy, from being part of the community picnic at the park for the Platinum Jubilee through the return of the summer term activities, such as Sophie’s sports day and the school summer fayre. Moments that we’ve very much missed over the last couple of years.
As always, emotions have been up and down. There is always that ache that Jessica should be part of these moments too. Watching Sophie’s sports day, seeing Jessica’s classmates there and imagining her there too. Joy that is always intertwined with sadness. All those ‘what-if’ moments that are part and parcel of life as a bereaved family, forever incomplete.
