Having felt a little out of sorts month I have been indulging in some much-needed self-care. The opportunity to hide away from the pressures and strains of real-life and taking the time to read and relax when needed. Something I feel a pang of guilt about, however, I know that when I am feeling overwhelmed I need to step back instead of attempting to plough through and making myself feel even worse.
This month’s #LittleLoves…
Reading has been my go-to hobby this month just like the rest of the year. Celebrating reaching 200 books read so far this year. Considering I was hoping to read 20 books in 2020, I am over the moon that I’ve rediscovered my love of the written word. My favourite books of the month…
- Lockdown Parenting Fails compiled Nathan Joyce (win your copy HERE)
- Stroke Of Midnight by K Webster – I can’t wait for the second book!
- I Just Need You by J Nathan
- A Ruthless Proposition by Natasha Anders – I needed ALL the tissues for this one
This month has all been about celebrating and enjoying spooktacular films. A combination of classic films from my childhood such as Casper, The Addams Family and Hocus Pocus. Alongside the newer films that the children chose such as Goosebumps, the animated The Addams Family and Monster Family.
The end of the first half term of the new school year signals news on how the children are adjusting to their new classes. Due to the lockdown and social distancing measures parents evening was conducted over the phone. Something I actually preferred, feeling more at ease than sitting in a classroom having the same discussion. With Tigger and Piglet doing well and advised on which areas we need to assist them on.
October has brought the wet and windy weather alongside the darker days. This month has all been about ensuring winter coats fit and starting to dig out the hats, scarves and gloves. Not forgetting the importance of wellies for puddle jumping – might as well make the most of the wet weather.
Halloween is usually a big deal on our estates, however, like the rest of 2020 we are having to rethink the way we do things. So whilst we’re not able to prepare for Trick or Treaters we have been looking at ways to enjoy Halloween at home.
With many frustrations and delays I’m finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Slowly some things we’ve had in the pipework for a while appear to be happening and I’ll be pleases to have at least one less thing to worry about.
