LOCKDOWN LIFE – SIX WEEKS IN

May 4, 2020

I didn’t think I would ever write a blog post sharing my experiences with being in lockdown. It really is a strange time and one we have all had to adjust to pretty quickly. We are now heading into week seven, and although I find it quite astonishing we are at that stage already, the last six weeks have been tough. At the start of lockdown, I was still heading out weekly to do the shopping. Every Saturday for the…

LITTLE LOVES 2020 | APRIL EDITION

May 1, 2020

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! I have really struggled the last few months with blogging. It’s taken me some time to adjust to working from home, home schooling and being the best parent I can possibly be given the circumstances. Its hard, and I have been quite vocal about how I am struggling. It’s very hard not to compare yourself to others online and what they are achieving and what they are managing to fit…

DAILY WALKS | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

April 19, 2020

Never in a million years would I have ever thought that we would be locked down in our own homes. It’s so strange not waking up and just making a spur of the moment decision to just go out for the day, because we can’t. To not have the routine of doing the school run or going to work is just peculiar. Our lives have changed dramatically over the past few weeks and trying to find the normal is hard.…

6 OF THE BEST TV SERIES I’VE WATCHED THIS MONTH

April 18, 2020

As we are in lockdown, it means I have watched quite a bit of TV! I am currently binge watching SKY & Netflix likes its going out of fashion. There is something about getting cosy on the sofa with a blanket, a cup of tea and the remainder of the Easter chocolate and forgetting about what’s going on outside. With that in mind I thought I would share with you some binge worthy box sets that you may enjoy amid…

EASY PEASY BANANA LOAF

April 13, 2020

I do love me a bit of homemade banana loaf. Its even tastier when its just cooled down and still squidy and warm. As part of a homeschooling lesson (albeit it being in the easter holidays) we made some banana bread. Its so simple and the result is pretty good. I did have a bit of a mild panic that I didn’t actually have any flour, but luckily I had some stashed away! You can actually find this recipe online…

CLAP FOR CARERS | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

April 12, 2020

Every Thursday for the past few weeks the UK has stood at their front doors and clapped. They have clapped so loudly and with such admiration for the UK’s National Health Service and frontline staff, it brings tears to my eyes every single time. It feels me with so much emotion and makes me so proud we have a service that is helping those that need it the most. We are living in such strange times. The way we have…

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! I am a week late to Little Loves this month. Time just ran away with me and if you read my post from yesterday I just fell out of love with blogging. We are living in crazy times and adjusting to that has been hard.

LIFE LATELY | COPING WITH LIFE IN LOCKDOWN

April 9, 2020

WOW, it’s been a while! So long, I feel like I have forgotten just exactly how to blog. Every time I open the laptop to write, I promptly shut it again and think, maybe tomorrow. The past few weeks have been hard, it has been a huge adjustment to daily life. I have struggled with the lockdown process, but think I have found a happy medium. We have sacrificed so much over the past few weeks. Some things were not…

FRIDAY NIGHT ROUTINE | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

March 1, 2020

I look forward to Fridays. Its the last working day and it marks the beginning of the weekend. Friday nights also consist of swimming and curry. Definitely my favourite night of the week. Henry was never ever a fan of Friday night. Last year, it was such a struggle to get him to swimming. He would wake in the morning and make an excuse as to why he couldn’t go. This year, he has been completely different. He has thrown…
