Project 365 2020 Week 20 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 9

Sandbanks

Sunday’s announcement from the Prime Minister was a bit of relief for me. Although effectively we are still in lockdown, being able to drive a few miles up the road to exercise is a relief as the kids were getting a little bored of our walks. I found the announcement to be clear and concise, but the media immediately ripped it apart, which really wasn’t helpful at all. I admire the government, they are doing their best in a bad… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 20 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 9”

Pins and Nettie – the brand new animated series for toddlers and pre-schoolers

Pins and Nettie

Have you heard there is a brand new animated series starting on YouTube this Friday? It’s called Pins and Nettie, and I think it will be perfect for your toddlers and pre-schoolers! It’s about two little hedgehogs called… you guessed it… Pins and Nettie, who love nothing more than to go out and explore the suburbs where they live.

Project 365 2020 – Week 13 – COVID19 Lockdown Week 2

Bike Ride

I have decided to write my posts with a daily account, as it is so easy to forget the little things. Monday 23rd March Our body clocks are still in school mode so we were up at 7am as normal, although there wasn’t the normal hustle and bustle of getting lunch boxes made and persuading reluctant children into their uniforms. We started our “school day” at 9am with a Joe Wicks live workout. It started well, but soon descended into… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 – Week 13 – COVID19 Lockdown Week 2”
