#MySundaySnapshot – Snowmance 02/52 (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.

Given that I’ve spent the past seven days stuck in our four-wall-fortress living in the luxury of a lockdown, I’ve not really had the chance to snap any shots other than those which I’ve taken during our ‘happy homeschooling’ sessions. I have therefore outsourced the featured photos for the next few weeks, thus will be sharing some of the amazing shots taken by my family and friends which I’ve found whilst flicking through Facebook (as you do whilst stuck inside).…

Interior Design Ideas For 2021

If you are coming into 2021 feeling a little blue, you aren’t alone. Although most of us are glad that 2020 is behind us, 2021 presents a whole new set of challenges which act as a continuation of 2020’s difficulties. While the new year is usually a time for feeling refreshed, optimistic and rejuvenated for the year ahead, many of us don’t feel that way this year.

While there isn’t much we can do about the state of the world other than take care of ourselves and those around us, there are ways to give ourselves the pick-me-up we deserve. If you are looking to spruce up your living space to improve your mood and give yourself a project, here are some interior design ideas for 2021!…

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!…

Don’t Disconnect From The Health Risks Of Online Shopping

The last year has seen us changing the way that we do just about everything. Suddenly, our work and learning are all taking place remotely, and they’re not the only things. Online shopping has also shot into the mainstream.

On the surface, this online shift can seem like a positive for safety, and it’s certainly preferable to a trip outside right now. But, to say that online options are without risk wouldn’t be altogether true. Admittedly, it’s not known whether packages transmit coronavirus, but the world health organisation thinks there’s a strong chance they could. This is a risk that was only highlighted late last year after a breakout in a warehouse near Seoul.…

#MySundaySnapshot – A Jaded January 1/52 (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.

So here we are in 2021 and let’s be honest now, not an awful lot (other than the calendar year) has really changed. I feel it may well be a bit of a jaded January as there’s naff all to do and naff all to look forward to…

We’ve spent this afternoon ‘de-christmassing’ the house by taking down the decorations and storing them all away in the attic.…
