Why I’m blogging

Why I’m blogging
You might be wondering why I decided to write my own blog just as the world is struck with a pandemic, and some days I ask myself that very question too. You see, I have a toddler, so while some of you out there are taking the opportunity to catch up on a box set or two, or learn something new, I'm still struggling to go to the toilet by myself. Bu...

We’ve made it one week

We’ve made it one week

Even though it's only a small milestone in the grand scheme of things, having a milestone reached still feels like something to me.I know what some people are thinking, I look after my toddler all day every day anyway, not much has changed. How I...

I wish I was two

I wish I was two
​​As I get to the end of my day, one where my toddler has been refusing to nap or be reasonable, I can't help but feel jealous. I mean, wouldn't it be great to be two again. Ok, so wearing nappies does make it that bit less appealing, but hear me out. My first point, and this is the one I'm really jealous of, is he can sleep any time he likes. Yep,...

Why wait for tomorrow

Why wait for tomorrow
We're all in a unique situation and whether anyone really did predict it or not, we can't really say we were ready. I mean, we would have had supermarket store rooms filled with toilet roll and hand sanitiser for a start. But it's not just the hunt for toilet roll that unites us, no, it's the fact that for the very first time we're all in this toge...

Last swim before the UK closes

Last swim before the UK closes
I lost count of how many times I checked my emails this morning despite usually struggling to open them even once. After seeing class cancellations posted all over Facebook due to COVID-19 I was sure swimming was going to follow suit. I hate to say I was a little hopeful it would be cancelled too, I've been finding the classes exhausting recently. ...

A historic Mother’s Day weekend
It's safe to say that this Mother's Day weekend is going to go down in history. Whether you are social distancing, self-isolating or working to keep the country going, there's no hiding from the fact that we're at the beginning of a pandemic. With schools closed, pubs and restaurants closed and shops shutting up and down the high street we're all b...

Coping with social distancing

Coping with social distancing
As any mum out there knows, we all need to find a way to cope now we have children. Something to rely on when we've been up half the night for no obvious reason (though everyone will guess the reason for you just to make it that much more painful) or we're bored of telling the kids to stop playing with toilet paper (it's valuable now don't you know...

Taking the leap to stop our gymnastics

Taking the leap to stop our gymnastics
Another day, another lesson. Just like before, I constantly checked my emails because you never know when guidance will change at the moment, we're seeing new information all the time. But gymnastics still went ahead. We love gymnastics, it's the one place I can let my son go crazy without too much fear, plenty of crash mats and a spring loaded flo...
