Lockdown!

Wow! I haven’t been around for ages! Sorry about that. Things have just been going full speed for a while. Well maybe not quite full speed, just at a normal speed and I’ve forgotten about my blog… yes. That’s the real reason. 🤦🏽‍♀️

Ok, so since my last post there has been big news for the world. Yes, bloody Coronavirus has ruined our lives for the foreseeable future! We have been in lockdown for a week in the U.K and homeschooling is going well so far. Darcey has learned lots, let’s just hope I feel the same way in another week. How on earth do home schooling parents do it!? I applaud you all! If you have any tips for me, fire away. Please.

I have kept up with my running and trying to run 5k if not everyday, every other day. We’re allowed out for exercise, essential shopping and to collect medication. Both Matt and I have been furloughed from our jobs. But apparently the government is going to pay 80% of our wages until we can go back to work. So I’m feeling optimistic about not having a job at the moment. I’m seeing this short time in lockdown as an opportunity to broaden the girls learning and also my own. I have recently downloaded the ‘Duolingo’ app and learning Spanish. I feel that now is the time to do things you wouldn’t normally have time to do when one is working and being a parent. Get your minds working too. I love all the live lessons online and we’ve all joined in with Oti and her dance classes from her house. Maddie Moates and her Science lessons, today’s one was about how poo is made (Darcey particularly loved this one) and we’ve joined with various toddler classes, Toddler time, rag dolly Anna’s and more.

I hope you are all keeping well and making sure your family are entertained at this uncertain time. You’re all doing fantastically now! Just keep up the good work.

  1. Hey, nice to see your writing! As a uni student I feel the first two weeks of quarantine is quite tough. I have to adapt with the online classes and also manage my lil brother’s online schooling (since my mom and dad are busy with their works). Read some posts on here is such a healing. Really hope I can be more adaptive with this situation and find the rhythm soon. Warm greetings 🧡

    1. Hi Nur. Thank you for reading my blog. I’m sure you can get through this tough time. It’s a whole new way of living and none of us have had this experience before, but if we stay positive and carry on learning then it will pass and be a distant memory. Not sure where you’re from, but I keep saying to my six year old, just wait, one day all this will be a film soon or on Horrible Histories! 🙃. Hang in there. You’re doing great already!
