Help

Oh my god seriously, how the heck am I actually meant to homeschool 3 kids (14, 13 & 8 – who’s severly dsylexic) as well as work from home; deal with a dog who is barking all the time as not used to all being at home in her space; and a constant stream of online deliveries being left on the step.  Actually considering self-isolating in the garage with all the gin, my laptop, in my onesie!

But seriously, I need to figure something out as otherwise, my anxiety will be something else that needs help!  I swing from day to day. One day feeling invinsible and knowing that I can only do what I can do.  To the next feeling like I am the worst parent in the world who’s children will literally revert back to pre-school and lose the ability to read and write if I don’t ensure they are on a full timetable.

Online Resources

To be fair, with the older two, it is a fairly easy (well once I’d spent the best part of the day setting up their online access). Furthermore, it gives me something solid to keep them from spending the entire day in their room on the Xbox.

However I’ve spent the last few days being tagged into amazing free online classes of very talented friends, as well as being sent lots of great resources to share for my day job, and I wanted to share them all with you!

Today

On a day when the UK deaths reached an all-time high.  When it was announced that we would be turning a London conference centre into a temporary hospital.  When the call went out for the requirement of 250,000 volunteer NHS workers.  And when the whole country received an emergency ‘text’ from the government…

Well, most of us did as was asked.  There were still the ignorant, not social distancing.  The selfish, bulk buying.  The key workers, putting their lives on the line.  Life goes on, just not as we know it!
