We love climbing frames and wooden swing and slide sets, and we’ve seen so many benefits from taking the children to different parks over the years. Every school holiday we spend a day doing a tour of the local parks, and we try out at least one that we haven’t been to before.
This is a strange and unprecedented time in our lives. Families all over the world are in lock down. Whilst this might be a really difficult time in so many ways, it is also an opportunity to do things we might not normally have time for in everyday life.
Not being able to leave the house is an odd situation for so many of us, but not getting out doesn’t mean you can’t keep moving. Obviously if you have a garden this will be much easier, but even if you live in a small flat or small house there are so many things you can do.
I’ve also been trying to remind myself that this is not home schooling in the sense that home-schoolers know it. This is crisis schooling and that is NOT the same thing. No one has done this before and we’ve had little time to prepare.
Family life is hectic. We race from place to place, club to club, meeting to meeting and we keep going, sometimes for weeks at a time without taking a breath. Without pausing to reflect on the impact that can have over time.
As a sign of respect and appreciation for our wonderful NHS and emergency service workers, we want to share the best freebies they can claim right now!
The sun is shinning this week, which is lovely. Perhaps it’s making you think about having a cocktail or two, or a mocktail if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or just prefer something non-alcoholic.
Have you ever been tempted to publish a story anonymously or take a pseudonym? If yes, then you are not alone. There are so many writers these days who choose this option.
