  • Diary of our COVID 19 Lockdown | November 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, so now we were in November, a month historically that is extremely busy for us as all 3 kids birthdays are in, but this year saw the return of lockdown.

  • 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.

With her tastes, shes enjoys music and listens to things every day through her air-buds, in the variety of things she watches music and films/TV with musicals references are things that she enjoys, she will take any moment any opportunity to do some sort of performance, even just walking around the house.

  • 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 play, 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 2020

    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.

  • Batman | Tigger’s Favourite

    As kids go through the years, there interests change many times, and some stay with them for years if not ever. With Tigger, he has a few that has stayed with him, but one of them that has become his favourite is Batman, this seemingly dark hero has followed him through several years of TV, Games, Toys and films, but why has this become so important to him, and why him?

  • Diary of our COVID 19 Lockdown | Week 23-25

    At the beginning of lockdown, I decided to do a diary of our lockdown lives, looking at what we did, how we got on, and what our thoughts were. I was a key worker so I’ve been at work the whole time while the kids have been at home, and Boo has been doing limited work. This was the last few weeks of the summer holidays! so it was a busy time normally, but this year was a different time.
