🌼 April is here and along with it comes another set of photo keywords for #MummyPhotoADay photo challenge.

We should have been flying to Dubai today, so my insta squares would have been very different to what they now will be. I’m expecting to see lots of Spring colours and stay at home families instead this month.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #mummyphotoaday so I can comment and share my favourites throughout the month.

Does anyone have any creative stay at home plans for April?

🌼 April is here and...

My favourite pics from March...

The kiddies had a lot of fun playing in the bath today. Swimming pools are closed, it’s too cold to get outside in a paddling pool so we put our swimming costumes on and pretended!

The kids had loads of fun making sparkly bath water and foaming soap shapes with @kidsstuffcrazy products. It’s amazing how fun products like this can keep the kiddies entertained for hours.

They literally played in the bath for an hour. The water had gone cold by the time they got out. It was the perfect indoor fun activity, especially as it was wet outside today.

If you’re homeschooling and self isolating with young children why not make a fun bath and invite the kids to make a mess with whatever you have in the bathroom! We also tried to make our own bubble bath using washing up liquid and #citrus juice - it wasn’t a nice smell 😂 the kiddies will try again in the week.

You can get the Magical Sparkle bubble bath and Foaming Soap from Kids Stuff Crazy at @superdrug - check out my review on the blog. #linkinbio

The kiddies had a lot...

Today has been a busy day, but nice and chilled at the same time. We let the kiddies have iPad and Xbox time this morning; our homeschool doesn’t give out homework! They built some cool stuff in Minecraft and worked together. Which was nice to see.

After lunch we took a longer walk than in the week, across the river. This is a walking route that is direct from our doorstep and took us 90 minutes in total, part of our one exercise a day under lockdown rules. It was nice to get some fresh air and just talk about whatever comes into our heads. We spoke about a lot of random things. 7 & 9 year olds do come out with some funny comments. Noahs favourites are “would you rathers”. We got home and Daddy made a delicious roast dinner and I did a deep #clean in the bathroom. Then had a long hot bath!

No rush for any of these things as we seemingly have about 12 weeks of working at home and possibly months of homeschooling. I just hope we can have family over soon as we miss them all.

I am running a day behind 🤦🏼‍♀️ I keep falling asleep and not posting my photos. I’ll catch up today... This is #fresh. Getting out in the fresh air has been a complete dream over the past week. When you’re told you can’t do something, it makes you want to do it more. Like when Hubby said we have to be careful about the food we eat, I wanted to eat it all!

This photo was the kiddies playing football with Daddy whilst I walked with them with the doggies. It’s something that’s becoming a habit after we finish homeschooling.

It’s a shame as Daddy normal gets out all of the time. On a typical Sunday he’ll go out for a 3 hour bike ride in the mornings. Possibly go swimming with the kids too. Walk the dogs with us later in the afternoon. I think this “1 exercise” rule will be effecting him more than anyone else I know. It’s also makes family decisions hard, if Daddy goes out on his bike he can’t walk with us. It’s very necessary with the lockdown rules. 
Just think how much we’ll all appreciate a long bike ride and driving to the beach for the day when all of this is over.

I love Lush products, they smell good enough to eat (or #drink) and are amazing. They have a range of handmade soaps that come in all shapes and smells.

This particular soap is called “Parsley Porridge” and it’s packed with antibacterial tea tree infusion, antimicrobial fresh parsley and thyme. Crucially, it also contains fresh aloe gel which helps to soothe your hands and the anti-inflammatory fine ground oatmeal gently exfoliates your hands too.

It’s perfect at the moment, my hands are like reptile skin where I’ve washed them more than normal. This has helped to soothe them and my hands are starting to feel a lot softer.

All of the @lush soaps are self preserving. They are made with natural ingredients that keep the soap clean!

I have also got Karma (my absolute favourite smell) and Sea Vegetable. They all smell INCREDIBLE.

This is not an ad. I bought them all myself. I just think they are amazing products, the company has a good ethos and they even recycle their own pots in its own recycling plant!

I was so tired yesterday I completely forgot to post, so this is a capture from our Day 4! That sky is just unreal. I have loved the sun so much, it looks glorious. I think it’s definitely helped get me through the week.

I found it tough yesterday, I think because it’s just non stop. Parent... homeschooling... work... parent. I need to space things out a bit I think so I can chill in-between tasks. The same for the kids. They seemed irritable and frustrated yesterday too.

People keep telling me the kiddies will be home until September, which I really don’t understand. But if that’s the case I’m definitely going to have to consider using some of my annual leave so I can break the weeks up. I can get the kiddies involved in some #diy, and we can spend the day doing fun things together.

How are you finding the homeschooling  and working from home juggle?
