Schools in the UK are currently closed so I’ve mostly been working from home for the last couple of weeks. It’s challenging trying to juggle online lessons with my daughter’s school work, but it’s also nice to be able to get involved with her learning.

I returned to work full time this week after almost six months at home. The summer holidays were pretty good despite the Covid situation. We got to spend some quality time together as a family without having to run our online classes.
I’ve been getting active this week as I’ve finally run out of excuses not to exercise. My main goals are to feel more energetic, increase my stamina and improve my overall health and fitness.
This week, I spent a lot of time with my daughter making preparations for the 75th VE Day. We didn’t have any union flags so we made some red, white and blue bunting for our garden fence from some old plastic bags. I also printed some colouring pages for my daughter to complete and stuck them up in the kitchen.
Today is our 6th wedding anniversary! It feels like yesterday. During that time we’ve made great progress with our careers, gone on some fantastic holidays, had our beautiful daughter and made some wonderful memories.
It’s been a pretty good couple of weeks. Working from home resumed on Monday and I’ve been looking into ways I can support my students with their reading and spelling while the school is closed.
My daughter and I continued our craft experiments and a few days ago we made this spring centrepiece.
Happy Easter everyone! I know that this year has been quite different and strange, but I hope you managed to celebrate in some way if Easter is important to you. I’m writing my Sunday Post on a Monday because time has lost all meaning to me.
We’ve just had our second week of lockdown in the UK and I’m still in fairly good spirits. I went into work to supervise the children of keyworkers on Tuesday, and it was nice to have a change of scene. The rest of the time I’ve been working from home, doing lots of fun activities with my daughter and video calling family and friends. Virtual choir and meditation sessions have been particularly fun.
