#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.

#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.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Look For The Light 12/52 (2020)

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.

Given that my family and I are currently self-isolating thanks to me having symptoms of mild flu (a high temperature, aches and pains and a tight chest) I haven’t actually been out of the house since Thursday. I have therefore pinched a picture from my good friend J, who regularly posts and shares her scenic pictures which she shoots around our local area.

This picture really sums up my current mood; the thick, dark trees looming overhead, shielding the light from passing through.…
