The funny thing about writing a regular weekly post is how much you notice the changes. What a different place the UK is from a week ago. With schools closing on Friday, most of us are becoming home educators. We are incredibly lucky that the children’s school are setting work online. They’ve also provided a suggested timetable, which is a great way to keep some structure to their days and mine. The singing competition Saturday suddenly seems like a really long time ago. After much speculation, the singing competition that Libby was due to take part in went ahead. She…

It’s a strange thing when most of your daily interactions are via social media rather than in person. I’m not glued to social media, but it does form a big part of my life. It’s one of the best ways to share blog content and interact with others who do similar work. It’s also useful to interact with people who work from home, it would be quite lonely with no contact at all with anyone during office hours. That said, it definitely gives me a distorted perception of reality. A reality where people are panic buying toilet rolls and living…

Shopping I’ve never really been…

As usual, half term is flying by. This time though, we’re taking things easy. We normally go away during the school holidays but for various reasons, we didn’t end up booking anything this week. As it turned out, that was absolutely the right decision. Since the weekend, the river level has risen dramatically around here. Residents of local towns have been evacuated. We are incredibly lucky here to be high up, so we have been fine. That said, we’ve been unable to get anywhere so going on holiday probably wouldn’t have happened. Reading for fun Both girls are relatively good…

Well hasn’t half term crept up all of a sudden? It seems like only a few days ago that we were preparing for the children to go back to school. Now, there’s another holiday looming. For the first time in ages, we’ve got no plans to go away. My husband is on a course that week, so the girls and I will be busying ourselves locally. The slow divorce When the girls were tiny, we put them into the same bedroom so I could have the other bedroom as an office. They continued to enjoy this arrangement as they got…
