3.0

Just wanted to do a quick post to check in and make sure everyone was ok and coping with lockdown 3.0? I feel like I am on a rollercoaster. One minute I am grateful for the extra time we all get to spend together and so thankful for our home and safety, the next minute […]

What a six weeks

I can’t quite believe it’s been over six weeks since Sybbie arrived. The eve of lockdown she decided to make an appearance along with the suspense and ultimate disappointment that she wouldn’t meet many people for some time. She still hasn’t met everyone and hardly anyone properly, who even knows when she will. It makes […]

Lockdown Baby

I’ve not written for a while as like most of you, what on earth do I have to talk about? 2020 has been such a bizarre year, beyond writing about the latest box-set we are watching post the monotonous bedtime routine, I have nothing to say. Honestly, we can’t even commit to one without going […]

Some realisations

Hello…It’s been a while as I have been desperately trying to get my final project completed for university but have really missed writing for pleasure.

Sometimes it is a feeling like love, a natural act done subconsciously like my two-year-old planting a kiss on […]

Week 140593

How is everyone entering week 140593 of lockdown? We are muddling through with lots of highs and a few lows. I seem to think one minute yep, totally got this, could carry on for months. Then out of nowhere I just want to cry all day, desperately sad missing my family and friends. I am […]

We’ve got this

Blimey, one week done. Only one week and a weekend… It is completely crazy. I feel like I have been at home for years. Not sure if you feel the same but I have so many ups and downs in one day, it’s exhausting. Generally I feel really upbeat and positive but then a misty […]

Day two

As Disney+ launched today I fear I have lost my mini students for a few days. Who can blame them, a day of Disney mixed in with a run about in the glorious sunshine. Sounds like the perfect day to me. Perhaps like me you are feeling massively overwhelmed. My inboxes are full of great […]

The Terrible Twos

The clock strikes midnight turning your gorgeous bundle of joy into a two-year-old. Like magic dust has been sprinkled over their pillow as they sleep, the ‘terrible twos’ alter their attitude and you are left wondering what on earth happened to your baby over night? The sweet alliteration lulls you into a false sense of […]
