Since the lockdown rules were relaxed slightly, we haven’t really changed what we’ve been doing all that much. Still staying at home the vast majority of the time and just heading out for the odd local walk. But a couple of times we have tried going a little further afield and travelling by car to go for a walk. And to be honest, both times I’ve just found it really stressful and anxiety-inducing. I wrote a post before about how I’m feeling anxious about lockdown ending. And as lockdown starts to ease, I feel like the thing I’m struggling with the most is going out.
Week 50 squillion of lockdown and it’s been, like most of the others, full of ups and downs. So for our Living Arrows post this week, here are some of our ups and downs of lockdown life 🙂
Helloooo! It’s been a bit of a mad old week really. We’ve basically been enjoying the sunshine as much as possible, despite all the scary shiz going on around us!
So I’ve shared a few pretty positive posts about lockdown recently. About how on the whole we’ve been quite enjoying it and how I believe that there will be good things to come from it. All of that still stands. But if you’ve followed me for a while, especially over on Instagram, you will know that I’m also partial to a rant. Even a whinge sometimes if you’re lucky. In fact, I actually think it’s healthy to have a good old moan every now and then. I always panic after posting anything moany as I’m so aware that there are people far worse off. But I still think everyone’s feelings are valid no matter what. Therefore, I am about to moan! Here are 7 annoying things about parenting during lockdown…
Tonight I’m feeling like a crap parent. I mean, it’s not a one-off or anything – I quite often feel like a crap parent. As do most of us from time to time I’m sure! Usually it’s when I’ve properly lost it with one or both of the twiglets. And tonight I really lost it with C 🙁
