  • Diary of our COVID 19 Lockdown | December 2020

    In March I decided to do a Lockdown Diary, these were weekly but with the return to a bit more normality, kids back to school everything starting to open, I moved it to Monthly ones as we were still a while away from it being over, It was December! normally it’s my favourite time of ear but let’s be honest this year was different.

  • Kids Homework | What do we struggle with?

    As the kids are getting older their homework naturally gets tougher, with Roo now fully in the high school mode and staring down the GCSE’s, the level of Homework has shot up, being parents you will often get asked for help, whether its 5, 10 or 14 kids will always ask for some help and some point.

  • Halloween 2020

    Halloween in 2020 is going to be different, let’s face it, none of us has been able to do what we wanted to do this year but with Lockdown, Covid, restrictions and many challengers how would we be able to celebrate it? how would the kids still have some fun? That was the challenge this year, luckily in happened during our half term so that was a plus point to start off with.

  • The kids still play together

    We have 3 kids, Roo is 13, Tigger is 9 and piglet is 4, essentially they are 3 kids at 3 different age groups and school groups in the olden days, but it’s just how things have worked out over the years, this wasn’t ever planned to be this separated in years but it just happened. Having this distance apart in years means there taste in things is largely different, so can they play together still?

  • Halloween this year? lockdown

    With Halloween approaching, I would normally be planning our decorations and sweets etc, with festivities and fun for both our kiddies and others, the last few years we’ve grown into making a much bigger deal, but this year is different, 2020 has been a challenging year and with the lockdown and worry for many, I don’t if it’s right I should be doing Trick or treat for people.

  • Diary of our COVID 19 Lockdown | September

    Back in March I decided to do a Weekly Lockdown Diary with the kids and Boo all stuck at home, and myself still at work because I was classed as a key worker, and as the months ticked on buy we were slowly heading back to some sort of normality, the kids returned to school, I still worked, and Boo was getting back to more of a routine, and this month I decided to move our weekly review to monthly, this was the end of Summer, we squeezed a couple of last-minute outings before the school return.
