šŸ©· My beautiful familyā€¦

I love this photo, itā€™s not often we get a photo of the 4 of us. The children are growing up so quickly, itā€™s really important to me to capture these memories. Noah will be taller than me soon (I have heels on in this photo). 

This photo was taken the other weekend at my cousin-in-laws wedding. It was a wonderful day and the sun was shining. 

Have you enjoyed your half term with your familam so far?

How we are coping with lockdown 3 and helpful tips

How we are coping with lockdown 3 and helpful tips

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. VIEW the POST

Ways to make homeschooling UK more fun

Ways to make homeschooling UK more fun

When we talk of homeschooling, it doesn't necessarily have to mean endless flashcards and workbooks. Remember that it's a homeschool, so it doesn't have to handle like a private or public school. Homeschool fun begins when you start to relax. If a thing is not working for you or your kids, it's okay to change it. Here are some ways you can make homeschooling more fun for your kids. This is a post relating to homeschooling UK. VIEW the POST

Enter to win this fantastic bundle of new SMASH lunchboxes

With Back to School (hopefully) around the corner I teamed up with SMASH to offer one lucky reader the chance to win this fab bundle of lunch bags and water bottles. They are fashionable, functional and affordable products that are perfect for the little ones this September. These are an exclusive range only available at Asda this August!

We trusted that caretaker! He fooled us all.

We trusted that caretaker! He fooled us all.

On the 9th June 2020 we found out that the former caretaker at the children's first primary school had been charged with 21 offences in relation to children. I have not been able to write anything as I didn't want to hinder the court case, but today he was sentenced; he only got 5 years! No parent should have to go through this; the guilt, the anger, the disgust. He fooled us all. I am grateful I got to hug them tight throughout homeschooling, it comforted me for that period of time to know they were safe at home. VIEW the POST

Our family homeschooling routine

Our family homeschooling routine

Well, I never thought we would be in a position like this at the start of the year. We have all had to adapt and be flexible in this new world of lockdown. We are now into week 2 of lockdown and the kiddies be off school, this is our homeschooling routine at the moment. I am sure this will change as the weeks go on. VIEW the POST

Useful online resources for children whilst homeschooling

UPDATED 31 March 2020: I have found some incredible online resources from various sources and a lot of Googling last night. Perfect to keep your little ones entertained whilst homeschooling and working from home. We are going to try and keep the kiddies in their school routine as much as possible, just with different activities. We also have to juggle working from home, so some of these resources may mean that whilst they are concentrating on something for an hour, I get an extra hour of work done. Anything is going to help over the foreseeable. I am still in shock I think, I haven’t cried yet, although I have felt it a few times.
