Little Loves 2020 | July Edition

July 31, 2020

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! What a month, its been pretty hectic. Last final weeks of school and juggling the first few weeks of summer! It feels strange to not be homeschooling. A relief if I am honest. It was hard to spin all the plates, so I am thankful for the holidays! July was busy. Gracie finished her final last weeks at junior school, which was quite emotional. Such strange times and although they…

GOODBYE JUNIORS

July 17, 2020

Where to start? In September Gracie headed into year six with such excitement. So much to look forward to and so much to gain. And then COVID happened and before we knew it the schooling system had changed dramatically. We as parents were the ones teaching and we had to prepare for them for the inevitable, that their end of year will be hugely different to previous. No production, no residential, no year 6 transition to senior school, no celebration.…

SNIPPETS OF OUR LIFE #1

June 3, 2020

Last year I dabbled into a bit of videography. I really enjoyed it, but the just stopped. I think it fell in line with me loosing my love of blogging and taking an extended break. I watched those videos back that I created and I actually loved looking back on them.  So I have decided to maybe start again and try every month to create a little video of snapshots of our life. I really tried to do that 1…

HELLO JUNE

June 1, 2020

It seems that I have not sat down and typed up a “hello” post in quite some time. Actually, come to think of it, the last time I did write one was at the beginning of lockdown. We have not really been looking forward much, because well, there isn’t really much we can do! June brings us hope though so I thought I would get a few things down that will be happening this month. Birthdays In just 15 days…

LITTLE LOVES 2020 | MAY EDITION

May 29, 2020

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! What a month! It’s been glorious weather which has made it more bearable. We have spent quite a bit of time in the garden this month making the most of the outdoor space. Still feels quite surreal we are unable to go out and see people but heading into another month of being in lockdown feels like the norm. May saw me change the homeschooling routine, to fit better with…

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…

LIFESTYLE THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

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…
