Happy New Year and welcome to 2021 – it’s a new year and a new start or maybe not… As you will have read/ seen/ heard on the news last night, we are now in a third national lockdown and for the kids, it’s back to homeschool for a second time.
This year things are a little different however as I’m currently coordinating both primary and secondary education for two children, whilst my husband and I are also trying to work on our own roles, all of which is taking place under one roof with a whole heap of tech and, thankfully a decent internet connection!
If it’s not my phone, my watch, or my MacBook beeping with endless notifications, then it’s the microwave, the dishwasher, the washing machine, or the doorbell… it’s all go!
Happy At HomeSchool
With the National Lockdown being announced only hours ago, what better time for a brand new iPad to arrive for the little lady than this week? I can only imagine how it will benefit her over the next few weeks/ months ahead. Meanwhile, J has his PC setup and at the ready for google classrooms and all that malarky, and even better – our home office has a brand new desk set up and ready with fresh paper, fresh printer ink, and all the gadgets and gizmos I should imagine that we will require for however long we will be working from home.
Though I’m well aware of the pressures which ‘homeschool’ places upon parents, I’m so grateful and relieved that Boris finally made the right decision as the welfare and safety of my kids throughout the current pandemic was a huge personal concern that kept me awake at night. I personally am far happier and much more comfortable with the concept of staying healthy, happy, and VERY BUSY at home.
Thank you for reading and as always, I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
