Welcome to Our Week in Photos. Our way of sharing our week and what we get up to with our family abroad and grandparents who like to keep up with our life and antics.
I have to admit that I can’t remember what week of lockdown we are in, and I have lost track of where we are at. We are ok, and hanging in there although we have had a few wobbly moments this week. I have come to realise that it’s a balance of having wobbles and feeling ok and that it’s ok for it to be that way right now and possibly for some time to come.
This week I hacked a ten-foot bush in the garden down, had a long conversation about my future, finally managed to speak to my therapists (they have had to take time off work, due to COVID and family needs, I am not moaning or complaining, their family has had to come first, but I was glad to be able to have contact and to possibly start processing the contents of my head which this pandemic and forced lockdown have impacted in both good and bad ways, and we plod on. I actually don’t have much to say or share, to be honest, so I won’t ramble on.
You can see what we have been up to here this week but this is my favourite photo from this week. It’s the swans on our local pond.
We have had some drama with our local swans. A few years ago, when they were nesting on the pond as they do every year, a dog was allowed to attack the male and killed him. The mother refused to leave her nest and continued to try and hatch her babies. She managed to hatch one and we all rallied round to feed her during that time. We now have a pair of swans again but the male seemed to have vanished and we all thought we would have a mother swan alone again. But he was actually going elsewhere to feed and coming back. They now have 5 baby cygnets and he’s a proud dad and it’s something that makes us smile when we take our daily walks to see them. I will try and get some photos of the cygnets who are very cute and fluffy.
So that’s our week in photos. I hope the week has been kind to you too…

I’m glad you had to have a chat with your therapist. It sounds like you needed it. I do hope it helped.
Swans are beautiful creatures.
It sounds like the one’s near you have had a rough time. I’m glad they’re doing well now x
Glad to hear you had a chance to talk to your therapist, and hope you found it helpful.
Beautiful images of the swans. I thought they mated for life? Good to know that the lady swan has found another partner to have babies and look after them. What a dastardly thing to do, to let your dog to kill a swan.
Shame about the swans, but it sounds like they’re recovering nicely. The photos are so colourful. Glad you’ve managed to get back in touch with your therapist. I think we’re all having a wobble from time to time right now, hope things improve for you
Glad you managed to talk to your therapist. Swans are lovely creatures – I’m glad things seem to be going well with them this year.
Lovely photos of the swans. It myst be good to be able to speak to your therapist again.
I love your photos of the swans and glad to hear that the male swan is still around and hope that the cygnets continue to do well. I can understand having wobbly moments during lockdown – we’ve had a few of those too. Glad you were able to have a chat with your therapist. #project366
Thanks, I have a session this week. Hoping it will help a bit. Hope you are doing ok?
Those are gorgeous photos of the swans. I have had a few wobbles, I can understand why you’d have some. Glad you were able to chat with your therapist xx
it is a very challenging time, isn’t it? I think we all want normal to come back.
True, it’s ok for it to be confusing and wobbly. Glad you got in contact with your therapist; everyone needs someone to talk to. The pictures are lovely! That’s terrible what happened to the male swan; so heroic that you all were there to help the mother swan
Glad you are managing to chat to your therapist again.
Oh how sad what happened to the male swan…good on you all for helping the female.
Glad to hear that your therapist is back to work and you can speak to them again. We are still waiting for our nesting swans eggs to hatch, cannot wait to see the Cygnets
Thanks. Hoping for a session this week. Have your cygnets hatched yet?
