START OF A NEW ADVENTURE

September 13, 2020

This week my first born ventured into the next chapter, senior school. It came with a whole load of emotions not only from her, but me too. The start of her senior school journey has not been without its problems. We didn’t get our first choice school which caused a lot of upset and stress. The school we did eventually get was one we were both really happy about. It’s a brand new school and she and the rest of…

HELLO SEPTEMBER

September 1, 2020

Wow, 8 months in. I realised yesterday that the last monthly post was actually June. Lockdown has well and truly hit the blog hard. It’s been hard to motivate myself to write. The past few months were filled with homeschooling and working from home. It left me a little frazzled if I’m honest.  We are now back to some kind of norm. The school holidays have been quite the life saver. The chance to relax and take stock of everything.…

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…
