If you read my previous post on saving memories for 2020, then I am sure you having been waiting on tenterhooks. (what is a ‘tenterhook’ and what does that saying really mean?) for part two. Your wait is finally over, here then are my favourite photos from July – December 2020 . . .
July 2020 More Of My Favourite Photos
Hair in 2020
Hair was a big story in our house in July the boy raised money for Charity by shaving his off (we were so proud of him) and I enjoyed a long awaited cut and colour I had 4 inches cut off.. Today in February 2021 everything feels the same, except the boy is at University, and I have longer hair than ever before as my hair grows so fast!
August; we celebrated freedom, new university life and had kittens!
Oh how I cried
August was full of ups and downs, swings and roundabouts, I could not choose just one photo because so much happened!. UK lockdown rules were relaxed and as Marc and I had a long standing booking, that had been moved from February to August we decided a weekend getaway at The Pig Hotel at Combe was in order. Far enough to be a welcome stay-cation but not too far to rush back if needed.
We left the teen in charge of dog sitting and agreed he could have a goodbye ‘session’ for his friends. They were all off to various Universities the next week. On our return the house was tidy and the dogs well fed and happy. The day dawned and we packed him up and dropped him at his residential halls at university. Did I cry, nope I howled and sobbed (but only when I was alone) It needed to be done and after a good cry I pulled myself together and arranged to adopt the kittens that my boy had found for us. They were just the tonic i needed, they filled the now quiet house with fun and kitten mischief. The dogs loved them and today they are great friends. My son is very happy at university, and is turning out to be an exceptional documentary photographer !
Not many images for September,
A quiet month, settling into new routines and watching the kittens explore their new home. Needless to say I crocheted every single day and tried very hard to keep busy.
This month can be summed up in one grainy photo, that says it all.
Yes one grainy image say it all for me. His hand waving to me, three floors up, whilst spending 2 weeks in isolation with his flatmates. The boy caught Covid 19 whilst at university and had to isolate with his flatmates. We couldn’t visit, so I did a large emergency shop and hand delivered it. One of the handy things about him being at a local (ish) University. He survived and I learnt to trust in him and the superb adult he has become and let go a little more. C’est la vie.
A month to start hibernating.
We lit the log fire, drank copious cups of coffee and I crocheted 2 pairs of socks, and a couple of scarves, the temperatures plummeted and the threat of another lockdown was discussed on the news headlines
A cheery month but I did not feel the festive spirit move me.
Ba humbug indeed, for the first time in my life, I did not feel like celebrating Christmas, We all agreed and felt the same so we kept it low key and cosy. Crochet Cchristmas trees rock! I spent it with the people closest to me, the ones I love with all my heart and soul.
So there you have it. 12 months of 2020 and more than 12 of my favourite photos, I have to say it is very hard to choose just one to represent each month. Writing this post inspired me to invest in a photo book for the year of 2020.I dont want to forget a moment of it..
