I looked for volunteering opportunities but very little for children as I thought that might be nice. We do puzzles and movie nights, pamper night’s and sometimes go for a coffee (milk for her) but our favourite is getting in the car, getting the music on and singing together! We drove to the next town over and have a mooch in the shops. Simple but just lovely bonding. We also turn the tv off some evenings and just listen to music and chat. With work my time is limited so I always try to make the most of it. I’m also midlands with a daughter the same age if you want to get in touch. Quality time is important, do you have a hobby you can share or learn? I’m teaching my daughter to sew clothes and we make a lot of mistakes but it’s a nice process.
