The sun has got his hat on, Hip, hip, hip, hooray! The sun has got his hat on and… He’s coming out to play…. YAY!
That’s the first song/nursery rhyme that has always come straight to mind when seeing the sunshine. For the last couple of days we’ve had the most beautiful blue skies and sunshine (still quite chilly out) but for a change it’s not been dark, gloomy, dull and/or absolutely pissing it down with rain. HALLELUJAH!
I’ve been teaching my daughter the song above and she seems to really enjoy it. It brings a massive smile to her face. No matter what the weathers like outside, she always says “mummy, it’s a sunny day today”, even if it was a blizzard outside, it would be a sunny day to her lol.
For me, that bit of sunshine, the brightness, freshness and the rays that find themselves beaming through my windows, give me more of a positive mood and make me feel more motivated.
Everyday has literally just felt like one massive drag. To the point of waking up to the point of going to bed, has been the same thing day in day out.
Not doing anything new, seeing the same awful shit storm outside and just wanting to spend every minute of every day either curled on the sofa daydreaming or in bed (obviously I can’t do). But not having the energy or the eagerness to do more with my daughter, even though she occupies herself and spends most of the day running around getting every toy out that she has, it would feel so much better to make more of a day with her.
Anyhow, before I end up waffling on, the reason I’m writing this is because I really feel hopeful that better days are definitely coming. The thought of Bo-Jo putting things back to normal, opening everything up and lifting lockdown completely in a few months, is beyond exciting.
The thought of bringing my second baby into the world in the summer, not worrying about family not being about to meet him/her and actually being able to go out and enjoy every day. Taking my daughter to do different things when she’s not at preschool. Get back into our little routine that we had pre lockdown, have less stress, become more positive everyday and just basically enjoy life again.
Maybe the start of our beautiful looking weather that we’ve finally started to get this month, is really the start of better days ahead and all our lives finally getting back to normal.
Finally getting to see family and friends, summer bbq’s, days out, back to routine, normality, not taking anything for granted. Here’s to the summer and the hope that our dreams really will come true in a few months time.
I hope everyone reading this is well and doing ok! As always take care and stay safe. Feel free to email for any reason whatsoever. Have a beautiful day xo
