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! 🥰

Getting my fitness on!

So I’m almost two weeks into the ‘Insanity’ workouts! And I would like to think I’m doing really well! Ali gave me her old Fitbit with the heart rate tech on it. I love it! I’m in the ‘honeymoon’ stage with it all. Checking it every so often. Using the app, which has new features since I stopped using it a while back! I didn’t get round to doing a workout yesterday, but since the 7th January 2019, I’ve done 12 workouts and played Netball! So a day off is much needed. I’ll be back on it later today. Matt is back at work today since having ‘the snip’. Well. Tonight and I’ll be getting the bed to myself, which is always something to look forward to! We have a busy weekend planned. Darcey has swimming in the morning at the local leisure centre then another 1st birthday party to attend in the afternoon. Sunday is a whole day in London! I’m sure there’ll be lots of steps walked that day! 🚶🏽‍♀️There will definitely be photos to show from our weekend antics!

If there is anything you would like me to talk about. Please drop me a message. I don’t want to clog a newsfeed up with things that bore you. 😵 also if you do like what I’m writing. Please share it with your friends. It’s the only way of getting my name out in this giant planet we call Earth! I’m thinking about doing some Pinterest stuff soon. Baking is a favourite past time! Pinterest is great for amazing recipes. I want to get in on that action too!

Over and out for today. Thank you for sticking with me. 😘
