Positive pants

Well that’s another week done of lockdown. This week we got the confirmation we had all been waiting for. Schools definitely wouldn’t be back after half term. I guess we all expected it, so it didn’t seem too much of a bitter blow. As usual I have very little to talk about with life so […]

Anxiety loop

I’ve found myself in a bit of a self-perpetuating loop lately. I fight hard against anxiety and for the most part win the battle. Covid though, and in particular lockdown make the wins exhausting as we are literally staying at home for our own safety. How can you not be triggered by this and potentially […]

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.

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. I thought I would share some of my coronavirus realisations with you to kickstart the blog again. My children are either best friends or mortal enemies with no in between. […]

The Impossible Decision.

The eve of a new normal for us. I’m not sure we as parents have ever had to make such an important decision. It genuinely felt at times like we were damned either way. If we sent the children to school and nursery and they got poorly, it would be our fault for taking the […]

Mental Health

Bringing up boys I often find myself saying “that’s not very kind” but if one of them asked me to tell them what being kind means, I think I might struggle to articulate an answer succinctly. Sometimes it is a feeling like love, a natural act done subconsciously like my two-year-old planting a kiss on […]
