Due to the current ‘coronavirus lockdown’, I have been unable to take any scenic, outdoorsy shots other than from my back garden, which is precisely where this photo was taken earlier this evening.

For the past three months, we’ve had nothing but bad weather. We literally had storm after storm each and every weekend from the start of January to mid-March. Typically, as soon as the entire UK was ordered asked to ‘stay inside’ the sun began to shine and we’ve had the most wonderful weather.…

Pandemic Pixel Fun From Vizulize

Like the rest of the UK, we are currently in lockdown and having been isolated for almost a fortnight now, cabin fever is beginning to set in.

The kids have kept themselves busy with homeschooling activities, baking, painting, drawing, board games, movies and of course their beloved technology, which for once I’m quite thankful for.

In order to battle the boredom, I’ve been sure to keep a bank of resources set aside for those moments when the kids don’t quite know what to do with themselves, one of which is a ten-minute test both upon your eyes and your knowledge of endangered species.…

#LittleLoves – March 2020

I’ll level with you – there isn’t much that I’ve particularly ‘liked’ nor appreciated throughout March nor the current year if I’m honest. People are forever telling me to look at the positives but right now, at this moment in time, it’s not that easy.

I’m well aware that the UK is on lockdown and that the entire world is suffering and struggling with what has very quickly grown to be a pandemic. Covid 19 however, is the least of my worries at present. This statement itself (without illustrating my issues any further) may give you some insight into just how tough times are.…

#LivingArrows – Homeschooling 12/52 (2020)

Due to the recent coronavirus (covid 19) outbreak, the schools here in the UK officially shut on Friday for what could be for the foreseeable.

We are quite lucky in that I am a qualified and experienced teacher, thus homeschooling is no ‘biggy’. In fact, the kids were so excited to start working from home this morning, that if it weren’t for the kids’ social and our financial requirements, I’d quite consider keeping it this way.

Loving Learning At Home

Marvelous Maths

Luckily we aren’t completely ‘stuck inside’ as we have a large-ish garden, the kids are therefore able to play out and to enjoy the fresh spring air in-between their learning.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Mother’s Day Pandemics & Predictions

Well, that was officially one of the strangest Mother’s Days I have ever had. Don’t get me wrong, it was enjoyable and as always, I was spoilt rotten by my kids (with a little help from my husband) with cards and presents. However, I rather missed seeing and passing on presents and cards to our own parents, though this is simply not possible at present due to the covid 19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Although I’m quite a happy hermit and am very comfortable when at home, confinement due to coronavirus isn’t ideal. Don’t fret, I’m not ignorant nor stupid thus plan to stick to our solitude by staying inside, staying safe and ensuring that we follow all government guidance given.…
