Things I am looking forward to for the rest of the year

As summer is drawing to a close, it’s been a strange old year. So I wanted to do a post about, the things I am looking forward to for the rest of the year. 2020 will be a year remembered and talked about, for a long time to come. Unfortunately for all of the wrong reasons. So I wanted to try and think positively for the rest of the year, and look at some of the things I am looking forward to.

Football season

September bring that start of the new football seasons. Both Football (soccer) and American Football are huge passions of mine, and the start of the season is a welcome distraction. Football normally starts in August over here, but a late finish to last season pushed the start of this one back. I look forward to spending my time at the weekend watching sports again, and completely obsessing over my fantasy teams.

Back to School

Although it’s unusual circumstances, and it’s more worrying than usual. I have to be honest and say I’m looking forward to a few hours a day, when the house will be quiet. Now that the kids are back at school. Who knows how long that will be for though, as I somehow doubt that coronavirus has finished with us yet. Though I do hope I’m wrong.

Halloween and Christmas

Two of my absolutely favourite times of the year, are Halloween and Christmas. So I’m looking forward to them, though who knows what they will look like this year. Going trick or treating with the kids is great fun, and I always going in costume! I don’t know if it will be happening this year, especially if there’s another Covid spike. But we will see.

Same goes for Christmas. Will we all be travelling too see family as normal, or will we be in another lockdown? I guess we will find out over the coming months.

Things I am looking forward to for the rest of the year

Finally, I am looking forward to kicking on with the blog. The first 7/8 months have gone better than I could have ever hoped. I started in January with absolutely no idea, but I’ve learnt as I went along. I feel I’ve been getting better, and the numbers have been getting better every month.

I still have lots to learn, and think I can improve the blog in many areas. I’ve got lots of ideas, and I’m looking forward to getting to work on them. I hope your are all doing well, especially the parents out there. Back to school has been more stressful than ever this year. As always, thank you for reading.

Dad Does Autism

My name is Adam. I live with my partner Natalie, and our 2 children Jack and Lily. Both children are autistic, it is now my mission to show what life around autism is like. Spread the awareness and gain the acceptance that autistic people deserve.

      Absolutely, though I don’t think things will be completely normal for the rest of the year. Just seeing some slow progress towards a bit of normality would be nice.

    Always look forward to the trick or treating with the kids. I wonder if more people will take the leave a bowl of sweets outside approach.

      Yeah we usually leave a bowl of sweets out, as there will be no one in. You do have the issue of kids, especially the older ones taking great handfuls though. My partner goes nuts and puts a ton of sweets out, we’ve been greeted by a few empty bowls when out though, which really disappoints the kids.

      It’ll certainly be nice…we never plan anything to the last minute, so I have no idea what we will be doing yet. I like staying at home, but I don’t like having to cook 😂

      Country walks are great, it’s the perfect time of year for them if the weather is good. Nice and mild, soft ground….not so much if it’s raining.

      You are right matey, it’s been such a negative year. I’m looking forward to Halloween and Christmas too, times of year the girls all love. Plus 3 of them have birthdays in the run up to Christmas. There is always positives to overcome the negatives 😊
