As work is starting to pick back up again, I’m struggling to fit it in around Lia’s school run and helping Libby with her schoolwork. I’ve only blogged once a week for the past few weeks and it makes me glad I have these regular posts that I keep up with each Thursday. When lockdown is a distant memory, it will be interesting to look back and remember that even when we had nothing to do, life still seemed busy. I have no idea how I used to find the time for leaving the house as well as everything else.…

Things have changed slightly around here since last week, Lia has gone back to school. The girls have been horse riding and we celebrated Libby’s birthday with a couple of friends who were able to come and visit her in the garden.

The few small changes to lockdown that have taken place this week seem to equate to a lot more freedom. For us, days out at this time of year inevitably take place outside. It is quite rare for anybody outside our immediate family to join us too, so the four of us going for a day out felt relatively normal. We didn’t venture anywhere exciting but took our camper van to a local beauty spot 10 minutes down the road for a picnic. As there is a toilet in the van, it makes a huge difference to how long we can…
