Welcome to Bear and Moo

Moo & Me.

Hi and welcome to my first ever mummy blog!

‘Nervous’ is an understatement for me at the moment. I’m not sure how this will go, if people will relate to what I have to say about my life or if I even get any views. All very valid points to be nervous about, I think.

So, to begin with I need to explain the up coming blog.

I started writing it on my computer just after my second daughter was born in 2017. It started as a way to get my emotions out after having her and express what I was going through as a mother of two independent girls and a wife to Matt. Little did I know the mountains I had to climb to get to where I am today.

I hope you enjoy reading all of what I have to say and Thank You for getting this far!

Hey.

Hi and welcome to my new followers. I don’t ever expect anyone to read what I have to say, but here you are. Reading. Thank you. It really does mean a lot. 🥰

So I don’t really like to talk about covid and lockdown, because well, it’s just depressing isn’t it. But I do hope that news will be good today. That schools can go back. I know that Darcey is really struggling at the moment. Her mental health is down. Her attitude is up and we are clashing a heck of a lot! She’s been doing so well with home learning though. As Matt has been doing most of the learning with her, he needs a medal! He’s been absolutely amazing. I know he has wanted to give up many times and feels like he isn’t doing a good job, but I’ve been trying to let him know on a regular basis that he is, in fact, doing a fantastic job with Darcey. I still don’t think he believes that though…

We do miss going out to places, seeing friends and family. I’m just so grateful I have a small ‘bubble’ of people who are still present in my life. And for the sake of Darcey’s well being, we do have contact with her best friend. She has been finding not being at school very tough and I think there are a lot of children out there in the same situation. We should be applauding our children. Us as adults are having a difficult time and we know the impact of what’s going on. Our children have no idea of the impact and are struggling the most. Things need to go back to normal, quickly because she can’t go on like this much longer. Please Boris, please let her go back to school where she can be with her friends, learn and thrive again!

If you want to follow my running journey, please follow me on Instagram @walker_fmw. I’ve been a bit slack in the last couple of weeks, but I’m determined to get the last two and half stone off before the year is up! So I need to stop making excuses and get running again.

I’m also still trying to get @bear_and_moo_ some more followers. It’s mostly digital art at the moment, but I will be going back to where it all started and making some more bits with fabric. Mainly hair bows. I’m also hoping to move into the resin world! Watch this space…

I’d like to continue with the blog and do some recipes. So there is plenty to be getting on with. I just need to make a plan and start it all.

Darcey had a go at screen printing a few weeks back, she loved doing it and this top has lasted a few washes already! Really impressed with ‘Hunt the moon’ and all the supplies they have!
We had a couple of days of snow fun (snow isn’t fun). We don’t get a lot of snow in the U.K. but we did buy a sled a few years back. It gets used once a year…
Some home learning with Dienes. Learning place value and how to multiply.
When these two get on. My world is great! 🥰

I’m still here

Hi there. Sorry to have been a stranger this whole time! July 2020 was my last post and I’m annoyed I haven’t made more of an effort to come on and blog a bit more. So lots has happened since you last heard from me. But rather than getting into everything, let’s just move forward! So after a busy lead up to Christmas, making stuff. I managed to get enough money to finally buy myself an iPad Pro and get an app called Procreate. I am almost ready to get a new line of items in my stock pile. Stickers and wall art here are a few things I have designed.

I’m hoping to get a few more projects under my belt before I start selling. I also have some stuff that I’ve seen on Pinterest that I’ve re-created.

So now I’m here and hoping things will more forward for Bear & Moo.
