January 2021 and that dreaded news hits our ears: “schools are closing to all students“. I can deal with all other restrictions but closing the schools to the children just breaks my heart. They were so sad, Isla cried herself to sleep and just knowing how much they will miss their friends and routine. I thought I would write down my feelings during lockdown 3 and some helpful tips on what we are doing to overcome some of these feelings.
Ah Christmas… that part of the year when it’s all about family. From giving gifts to eating that long awaited Christmas dinner, it brings a lot of love to the home and, in equal measure, a lot of potential messy situations. I love seeing a dining table, well dressed for a family meal.
