Maddie’s Family Trip around the World
As the nation heard the news, we were all moving into another National Lockdown, our heads dropped at the thought of dark nights, miserable weather and a return of the dreaded home school reopening. Could we bear being stuck indoors together 24/7 - the thought of the next few months was pretty overwhelming.
We tried to get out for family walks as much as possible. One lunchtime in the first week of January, we chatted about what could make the weekends more exciting, give us something to look forward to and make us feel like we were ‘out, out’. We decided we would have a country themed Saturday night, every Saturday night, until we came out of lockdown. Between us we chose all the countries we would like to ‘experience’ and put them all in a jar and agreed we would take turns picking the country each week, on that night we would get dressed up, listen to music, make food and drinks and watch a film all from that country.
