Lockdown Tip – Alphabet Hunt
Finding fun activities to keep your child entertained through lockdown can be hard. This is a simple fun game I made up which had my son entertained for over an hour!
Locking down again…
England announced this week a second ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown for a month (maybe more). It didn’t come as a surprise with Covid cases increasing and our R number going up and up… In some ways I feel like this should have happened earlier, but as I keep saying, we are where we are, and thereContinue reading “Locking down again…”
The Power of Nature
I’m not a green finger and gardening generally is not my thing. But… I do love the majestic beauty of a sunflower under the clear blue sky in summer. One of the benefits of lockdown is we were home most of this summer to nurture our garden and so we decided to plan some sunflowerContinue reading “The Power of Nature”
Exploring: The Cotswolds
Last weekend we were in one of my favourite English countryside locations… The Cotswolds. We are quite fortunate as it is just an hour or two drive from our house, depending on which part of the Cotswolds we visit, but it is truly like entering a different world of quintessential sandstone homes and beautiful landscapes.Continue reading “Exploring: The Cotswolds”

Going Retro at the Drive-In
I remember the drive-in with the wired speakers, the crackling sound and the big queues for snacks. Well it’s back and its even better!

Saturday’s pre Covid-19, pre lockdown were saved for date nights, girls nights, or dinner and drinks with friends. My son has just turned four,Continue reading “Saturday Movie Night”
Puzzle me this…
Put away that Netflix remote or your iPad, and bring out the puzzle! Tell me, when was the last time you really tried a new puzzle! I’m talking about a real puzzles… at least 1000 pieces. This may be tame for many, but for me, someone who will never claim to be a puzzle-master, thisContinue reading “Puzzle me this…”
Getting Fit Despite COVID…
When lockdown started, I had the best intentions to stay fit, use the time around work and caring for my son to get fit and healthy. Unfortunately, the reality was that I ate more working from home. This was exacerbated by having a hungry three-year-old: when he eats, I snack too! Then, my work schedule wentContinue reading “Getting Fit Despite COVID…”
