We all had a wobble in the house this week. The lockdown cracks developed into full-on fissures. We’d had enough of keeping ourselves occupied with mealtimes and online entertainment. We wanted out. We’ve been going for regular family walks but seeing the same landmarks day in day out had become tiresome. We’re also sick of being parents 24/7. That may sounds strange. Of course we’re always parents but normally it takes a back seat when you’re in work, college, out with friends, at yoga etc, etc. At home in lockdown, parenting is inescapable and it’s exhausting. Anyone who tells you otherwise isn’t do it right!
Enough of the moaning. On a positive note I am getting to update the blog, a long overdue task, which I’m thoroughly enjoying. The only thing I love more than information is sharing it! And I’m starting to spot more sustainable products in mainstream stores. Yippee! Here’s some other positive stories to get you all aglow this weekend.
