Hello everyone, I haven’t done a blog post in a little while as i’m sure you all are in the same position too of juggling; teaching, working from home, housework etc…
I go to the supermarket and I can still hear; “Mum”, “Can I have a snack”, “I need the toilet”, “I’m hungry”, “Can I have a drink”, it’s embedded in my brain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just wanted to check in and see how you all are? It’s been like a rollercoaster hasn’t it, I don’t know if you’re the same but one minute i’m up next minute i’m down – it’s crazy! I really think when the weather is warm outside, it totally helps and lifts my mood – are you the same?
Whilst being off i’ve spent so much more time with the kids and it’s been really lovely. Sometimes we get that indulged in work and life; family time is reduced to just weekends and even then housework and catching up on things you couldn’t get done through the week because of work has to be done on a weekend! Finding that balance is tough and even though we have been in Isolation for 6+ weeks now, I feel like i’m only just finding the balance of the new life and that’s going to get rumbled very shortly when we’re starting to go back to normality (whatever that is).
Trying to keep positive I have set myself some goals during lockdown and i’ve managed to learn how to make homemade bread, pizza’s and i’ve even started doing hinchlists and actually sticking to them. I know they aren’t for everyone and i’ve only just started doing them, but I actually think it keeps me on the right track for things that need doing & gives me more motivation and a kick up the a*** that I generally need these days. I’ve had a few days where i’ve just sat there and thought I actually don’t want to do anything at all today & have been really unmotivated so these lists are defo helping!
One thing i’ve always tried doing is getting more organised but I find the actual organising part, going through everything, to be so time consuming but once it’s done it saves so much time and it’s much easier to find things! So this has been one of my tasks too for before we go back to normality! It’s all in the plan of just trying to make things easier! Some people probably thing i’m mad for it, but if it helps my day to day life i’m game for absolutely anything!! I share all my tips and tricks on my Instagram to help others! Check them out! I always try and be as “real” as I can by showing before photos, my house is not perfect by far but if I can help someone else while i’m sorting my S*** out along the way then I will try my best.
Follow me on Instagram and let me know your what you’ve been getting up to !
Soon this will all be in a History lesson and just a distant memory, enjoy the family time, make the most of it as time is so precious! Don’t forget to be kind.
Save the ring pulls from your cans and use them on your coat hangers for extra storage space!!
