#LivingArrows – Trudging On & Time Out 04/52 (2021)

Please excuse my recent lack of posts, to say that I’ve been ‘snowed under’ is an understatement. If only we had actually had some decent snowfall, we got nothing but a dusting and I’m rather jealous of all the snow scene shots that people have been posting. Saying that I’m not sure that we would have the time to go out sledging as we’ve been none-stop with homeschool, work, sorting my Mum’s soggy situation and keeping on top of the chores – it’s exhausting!

Though the kids were a little sad to have missed the snow, I’m rather relieved as knowing our luck we’d have only ended with one us injured, perhaps breaking a bone or worse…

As usual, we’ve been busy, busy, busy this week at Homeschool HQ. …

#MySundaySnapshot – Dazzling Daffys 04/52 (2021)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Once again, we’ve been busy homeschooling the kids this week, part of which involved dissecting and identifying parts of flowers that we were sadly lacking. Thankfully my mother came to the rescue and brought us some beautiful roses and these delightful daffodils, some of which J cut to pieces as part of his work but I’ve since been left with these beautiful, bright, and dazzling daffodils which are really cheering up my dab and dreary kitchen.…

#LivingArrows – Here At Homeschool HQ 03/52 (2021)

Welcome to another week here at ‘Homeschool HQ’ – an endless juggling act that leaves both Paul and I completely exhausted by the end of the day, but it’s worth it to keep our little ones happy, healthy, entertained, and educated. Though, I’m slightly concerned that our recycling bins may overflow with bottles at the rate that my stress levels are rising – thankfully the kids are calm, cool, and collected which is the main thing.

Today we’ve been busy counting cubes, investigating past tense, stripping petals from flowers, breaking microscopes, researching bird flu,  investigating forces, carrying out video-conference staff meetings, changing dressings following my medical procedure earlier this week, and being sure to keep on top of the chores whilst ensuring that we are all fed and watered.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Sunset Sphere 03/52 (2021)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

As I mentioned in last week’s post, due to ‘living in lockdown’ I haven’t really had the chance to get all that many photos and so have chosen to use this opportunity to share a few of the super snapshots which have been taken by my family and friends.

Whilst scrolling through my Facebook feed, I saw this stunning shot which was taken by my good friend Kate.…

The Siblings Project – January 2021

Though we’ve had the odd flurry of the white stuff, in comparison to many other places around the UK we’ve not seen all that much snow as of yet this year. 

Earlier this week, the kids wrapped up warm for a winter’s walk, and despite scaring their Dad silly by slipping on the ice, both J & E rather enjoyed their escape from our ‘four wall fortress’. 

Though I’d love to see some more snow this year, I’m well aware that the moment it does ‘dump it down’ that the kids will want to be out with their sledges and given that our nearest hill is at the local park, it doesn’t really seem a very sensible place to go to right now… 

I was so hoping that this year would be better than the last but so far things just seem even harder and though I’m trying my best to keep smiling, it really isn’t easy.…
