    Our Siblings During February 2021

    February 2021 brought with it another month of lock-down for our siblings. Bringing with it even more scooter walks but also some snow-filled walks. The snow was a fantastic break from our current normal and was the cause of much excitement. This month brought with it the February half-term. Darren had this week off as a holiday which helped. We were meant to catch up on our missed homeschooling but it turned into a bit of a lazy week. Something both he and the children clearly needed. The last week of February has also brought with it a change in our sibling’s routine as Ethan was able to go back…

    Project 365 2021 Week 8 Day’s 51-57

    A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 8. This week Ethan returned to school which signifies a little bit of a return to normal for us. Little E will go back on the 8th of March when all the mainstream schools open their doors again. Project 365 – 2021 Week 8 Day 51 It was a lovely sunny day today so we went for a walk. It felt like the whole world was out and about. We tried to walk a different route to avoid any crowds. Day 52 Darren took the children for a walk today whilst I…

    Word Of The Week – Returning

    After Boris Johnson’s announcement, it felt like everyone was talking about returning to normal this week. Whatever normal is! We were able to experience our own small return this week as Ethan returned to school. I was made aware on Friday before half term that Ethan had a place in his class bubble after half term. Technically he could have been in school through this lockdown. They were only able to offer places to the children of keyworkers on the Covid-19 front line. With things improving Ethan’s headteacher thought it was time to start a phased reopening of the school. As Little E is still learning from home Ethan found…

    Project 365 2021 Week 7 Day’s 44-50

    A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 7. This week was our half-term holiday. Darren had the week off of work. In our previous lockdown life, we were hoping we might be able to escape to Center Parcs this week. Thankfully we didn’t book anything it was more of a pipe dream. So this was the week we were meant to catch-up with Little E’s school work but we just really pottered about instead. Project 365 – 2021 Week 7 Day 44 We had a delivery today. I ordered the children a Percy Pig Valentine hamper gift from Marks…

    Word Of The Week – Vaccines

    It turns out that vaccines are like buses. You wait for ages for one and then three come along at once! It felt like we were waiting a lifetime for my parents to receive their invitation letter to have their Covid-19 vaccine. The rollout was having delays in our area of the UK and their letters finally arrived the week before last. The NHS had to cancel their first appointments due to last week’s snow. Thankfully I was able to rearrange their appointments and they had their vaccines on Valentine’s Day. On Sunday evening I received a text from my doctor inviting me to book my Covid-19 vaccination. This was…
