Life In Lockdown | How we are utilising our time at home

May 20, 2020 5 Comments

As social distancing and the lockdown continues I have been interested to see what others have turned to in order to pass the time. Distract themselves from the situation etc. Everyone is dealing the prolonged time at home differently. For some they are coping quite well, some are struggling and some are floating between the two, having a mixture of good and bad days.

Life In Lockdown | Nothing has changed for us {Week 8}

May 17, 2020 No Comments

As I sat down to write my life in lockdown update last week I was anxious about the pending update from the Prime Minister. Later that evening I sat, watched and listened to the update on where the UK was with the Coronavirus outbreak. With announced changes to lockdown measures within England. To say that this update was unclear and contradicting is somewhat of an understatement. Quite frankly, I was appalled by the possible timescale for reducing the lockdown measures.

For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today

With VE-Day 75th anniversary celebrations very much in the media and on our minds last week. I watched Churchill’s speech, the coverage and social distancing street parties on the news. One of the things that have replayed on my mind time and time again is the ‘For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today’.

Life In Lockdown | Homeschooling: A learning journey for parents and children

May 5, 2020 6 Comments

Being a parent you like to think that you know everything about your children. To a certain extent you do, you can spot their personality traits, what makes them laugh and cry. However, one area that we don’t necessarily know about is what they are like at school. Their approach to learning, characteristics etc. Whilst parents evenings give you an insight, there is nothing like being there in the thick of things to see first hand.

Life in Lockdown | Creating family time {Week 6}

May 3, 2020 2 Comments

It’s easy to think that the past six weeks in lockdown is just an extended summer holiday. With the weather improving, the lighter evenings and spending time in the garden. I can fool myself into thinking that we have just pressed pause on the remote control of life. Of course, we haven’t done that. The world to some extent is still continuing outside our little comfort zone. Whilst there are things that I am beginning to miss from the outside world, I don’t feel that we are in a position to lift the lockdown and go about our business as we once did.

Life in Lockdown | We’ve Got This – I think! {Week 5}

April 26, 2020 4 Comments

The past week I’ve felt a little lacklustre, feeling out of sorts but unable to put my finger on the problem. It could be one of many things or a combination of them all. The sense of not being quite good enough, somewhat of a failure and a dose of guilt all sandwiched in there for good measure, Despite my ‘meh’ state we’ve had a fairly good week and I think we’ve got this life in lockdown.

Life in Lockdown | Lockdown Silver Linings

As the days and weeks of social distancing and lockdown pass by it is easy to think about the things we are missing out on. The things we have had to cancel or postpone. The people we haven’t seen in weeks or even longer. However, there are positives, silver linings if you will to the current situation.

Life in Lockdown | Three more weeks {Week 4}

April 19, 2020 4 Comments

The announcement came this week that lockdown measures would need to continue for a further three weeks. Looking across social media as this news filtered through I saw a mixed bag of reactions . Some wondering how they can manage for another three weeks. Something thinking that the measures should be easing by now. Then the others who were not surprised by the extension.
