It's finally 2021! It feels good to say that at long last. Although the global situation is currently very difficult, I'm putting my energies into being optimistic about the new year. I always love the start of the year because I feel it is a time for optimism, but this time it feels more important… Continue reading Happy New Year!
A New Venture
Good morning! How is everyone today? I hope you’re all well and coping with this continuing pandemic as well as you can. We’re in a lockdown here in Ireland, and I know that the UK is following with similar measures from Thursday onwards. I just keep thinking of the saying: “this will pass”. It can’t… Continue reading A New Venture
Hello! I know, it’s been a while – yet again. There’s been a lot going on, I’ve started to write so many blog posts, and never quite finished them! But I’m determined to finish this one. How are you doing? This pandemic is lasting a long time, isn't it? I’m trying to keep positive and… Continue reading Finding Balance
An empty diary and a bit of “mum guilt”!
Hi! How are you doing? It’s been a while since I last posted – again! To be honest, there’s not been too much to post about. Let’s face it, although some restrictions have been lifted, our lives are still so, well, restricted! Despite everything, I decided to buy a new diary – I always get… Continue reading An empty diary and a bit of “mum guilt”!
A normal afternoon
I don’t know about you, but something I’m struggling with during this pandemic, is finding things to do with our little man. Yes, we have settled into a comfortable routine at home, but it is very much “same old, same old” at this stage. As lovely as it is, I’m so aware that he needs… Continue reading A normal afternoon
Three Precious Hours
How are you all doing? Here in Ireland, lockdown is being relaxed. I have to say everything is a bit weird, life is definitely not as we knew it, nor, I suspect, will it be for some time. But life goes on, even if it feels a bit odd. Last Saturday, I finally got my… Continue reading Three Precious Hours
What would you do with one day of “normality”?
As things get back to a new normality, it’s got me thinking back to normality as we knew it pre-March 2020. Doesn’t that time feel like a previous life? A completely different world to the one we know now. It got me thinking, what would I do with just one day of that old normality?… Continue reading What would you do with one day of “normality”?
As we start to emerge from lockdown many of us are thinking about what we’ve learned from staying at home and doing very little. Well, I say doing very little, but that’s not really true is it? I don’t know anyone who has been at home literally doing nothing. In many ways lockdown has made… Continue reading Lockdown Lessons
Happy Father’s Day!
Just a short post today to mark Father’s Day! My husband is celebrating his second Father’s Day today with our little man and I just wanted to say what a great dad he is. As regular readers of the blog will know, it’s not easy for him as he has multiple sclerosis (ms), so there… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!
Venturing Out into the “New Normal”
Have you ventured out yet? It’s all a bit exciting isn’t it? You know, being able to go shopping for something other than food. I’ve only ventured out once so far on a non-essential shopping trip and that was for something very essential – our little man’s first pair of shoes! My goodness, another milestone.… Continue reading Venturing Out into the “New Normal”
