75 Months.... #TBCSmiles November 2020

It's been a funny month. In England we were told about lockdown on Halloween, and locked down on Firework Night. Ireland, Wales and Scotland had moved before us, so the whole UK were not quite doing it as we usually do. It worked though. 

We had a Halloween sweet hunt, and an online zoom pumpkin carving challenge with our big uni kids, and we'll never forget those moments. They wouldn't have happened without COVID. Yes it stops us from doing what we expected, but it doesn't have to stop us from 'doing'. We can still make memories, have fun, and create smiles.

A huge thank you to everyone who shared their smiles with us on Instagram this month. Anyone is welcome to join in, just use the hashtag #tbcsmiles on any smile. Some of them are very hard won, and every one precious. 

It's lovely to see lots of adults, people carrying on with their lives. We also have lots of children with old and new traditions, and a socially-distanced mix of the two. We can all do this.... 

These gorgeous grins, chuckles and sultry smiles were shared by the following instagrammers: 

ClareNicholasUK / Marvellous Mrs P / Superbusymum
ClaireyHarpo / GenuinePlacebo84 / TobyGoesBananas
_MyHappyEverAfter / MyMummysPennies / gemzka182_mummybio

We made our own smiles too, loads of them! It's been a busy month with lots of nice things sent for review. That's meant a month of long days for me, but at least I've had my camera out a lot...

If you can't see your smiles, they are always there. Sometimes we just have to look a little harder. They are the reason and the reminder for why we carry on. If you don't catch them on camera, store them safely in your head.
