Trying days

Me and the kids have had a lovely few days together over the past few days. We’ve been for walks in the sunshine, we’ve baked, painted, made Easter crafts and it’s been really nice.

I’ve actually enjoyed Kory’s time off school with him but despite the sun shining again yesterday – yesterday was different. Yesterday had been a really trying day. What I mean when I say ‘trying day’ is a day when I’ve really had to try to make the effort to do anything.

I woke up in the morning feeling really tired (which is never a good start to the day when you’ve got a full day of entertaining and taking care of two children) and the kids woke full of energy as they always do, raring to start the day almost immediately where as I still didn’t feel like I was ready to face the day even after my first cup of coffee which usually does the trick to be honest. But not yesterday.

From waking up, all day the kids wanted me to play – which I did for a while until I felt like I couldn’t any longer. After a sleepless night the night before with Kora, I just felt so tired yesterday. She doesn’t usually wake but that night she woke more than a few times (possibly teething?) and it must have took it’s toll on me. That’s the thing about parenting – it doesn’t matter that you didn’t get any sleep the night before, it doesn’t matter how tired, sick or fed up we might feel, we still need to push through the day and be okay because who else is going to take care of our kids? Kory is at an age where he can entertain himself but yesterday for whatever reason he had no interest in playing by himself at all and had wanted and needed me for every simple task he had to do.

I’m not ashamed to admit I cried a few times yesterday. I had to find the energy, the patience and the perseverance to deal with Kora’s 1000th tantrum of the day and Kory’s millionth ‘will you play?’ from somewhere, something I felt I really didn’t have yesterday and something I felt I couldn’t find. I shouted more times than I’d like to admit but I’d honestly had enough of sitting on Kory’s bedroom floor and playing with his toys with him, I’d had enough of Kora whining over me not giving her the ‘correct’ cup to drink from and I’d had enough of breaking up their fights.

Despite feeling so crap, I still made an effort to play, I still baked some biscuits with Kory while Kora napped but it seems that still wasn’t enough. I was hoping that maybe after doing so – I could sit down and just have moment. Let’s all laugh at how naive I was… Wishful thinking – I know. They both still required my attention just as much and I just could not, I had nothing else to give.

Sick of playing referee to the kids bickering and tired of playing with toys, I made lots of suggestions of other things we could do.

‘Shall we draw?’ No.

‘Shall we play on the switch together?’ No.

‘Shall we go for a walk?’ No.

It seems that they just wanted to drive me crazy and bounce off the walls at home. I don’t know where their extra energy came from yesterday, I’m convinced that they sucked what little energy I did have directly from my soul which in turn fuelled their energy even more. Me feeling completely drained and them having even more energy than usual was a bad combination.

The day did not get any better until R came home from work and I was able to get me and Kory dressed and out of the house for a walk. Kory protested but I made him anyway. We both needed to get out and we both needed the fresh air. I was quiet on our walk but Kory enjoyed himself as he always does whenever we go on an adventure and going for a walk always seems to clear my head too. When we got back from our walk, I came back feeling a bit better and I could tell by Kory’s mood that he was feeling better too. It was Kory’s bedtime then, both Kory and Kora went straight to sleep and I was finally able to sit down. And breathe.

We all have and will have trying days but it’s how we get through them that matters. Getting through a day like yesterday for some people might be to count down the hours until the day is over, for others it might be to try and make the day better. On those days when nothing feels like it’s going right, just know that you have the power to change your day around. I guess what I’m trying to say by writing this post is that tomorrow is always a new day but why wait for tomorrow when you can turn your day around today.

Yesterday WAS a trying day but it didn’t end as one and I’ve woke up today feeling much better about everything as well.

I hope you’re all okay. If you are having a ‘trying day’ what makes your day feel better? Please let me know by leaving me a comment.

My perfect Friday night

It’s Fridayyy! Or should I say ‘Friyay!’ …Can I get an ORRRR YEEEAH!!

I think Friday is my family’s favourite day of the week. I know it’s mine anyway. It’s the last working and school day of the week for us which means no more rushed, p!ss wet through school runs to do for a few days for me and the kids and it’s the start of the weekend too. In our house it’s also the one day a week we treat ourselves to a takeaway. AKA ‘fat Friday.’ Which means this mum doesn’t have to make tea!

Kory is at school, Kora is napping on me and I’ve got that Friday feeling. It got me thinking what my idea of a perfect Friday night would be and how it might be different to how other people like to spend theirs. I’ve never been one for going out and drinking much – even before I became a parent and long before lockdown ever happened. It’s just never been my scene. I’m not a prude or anything, I like a glass of wine I just prefer to drink it in the comfort of my own home. Pre parent me’s idea of a perfect Friday night probably wouldn’t be much different to my idea of a perfect Friday night now, two kids later… I guess I’ve always been boring! Lol

I guess my idea of a perfect Friday night now would start with a lonnnng, hot bubble bath (ALONE! Without the kids barging in the bathroom and climbing in with me!) afterwards I’d get into some fresh, comfy pjs, maybe listen to some music while I put on a face mask and then order some of my favourite food to eat and while I wait for that to arrive, pour myself a glass of wine or a good cup of tea (depending whichever mood I’m in) and then kick back and watch something other than CBeebies on the tele.

Bliss…

I just realised I didn’t mention my family at all. LOL. Not that I don’t want them there, they’re there, they’re just leaving me alone. Hahah. Just kidding! If you read my blog, you’ll already know I love family time but I’m also a fan of ‘me time’ too and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Its Friday today and tonight I will still get to do all of the above that I described as my ‘perfect Friday night’, it’s just I get to do it once we’ve all already had our takeaway (kids choice,) once I’ve tidied back up again and once I’ve put the kids to bed. In a dream world it would be nice to just get to do it without all of the other responsibilities I have to do first. If that makes sense?

Our Friday nights as they are already are pretty awesome though. We’ll let Kory choose which takeaway we’ll have, we’ll all play on the Nintendo Switch together while we wait for our food and then once we’ve had our food, it’s bath and bed for the kids. Then it’s mum time! Pop that bottle of wine open or stick the kettle on Kirst and put them feet up, you’ve made it through another week luv!

I always look forward to a Friday night.

What would be your idea of perfect Friday night? Please do let me know!

One year on

Yesterday marked one whole year since our lives were turned upside down and we began our first lockdown. When it was announced that everything would be locked down; schools, work, parks and non essential businesses and shops would have to close, I don’t think I quite believed it at first and I definitely didn’t think we would still be where we are now a year later.

The world and how we’ve lived our lives ever since the first lockdown began has felt different, strange and surreal to me. I forget what we’re living through sometimes and then suddenly I’ll remember and feel a bit overwhelmed by it all.

This past year has been filled with so many ups and downs. I do try to see the positive with everything in life but throughout the pandemic, sometimes i’ve found remaining positive a bit hard.

  • We’ve had to reassure our worrying children
  • We’ve had to go without seeing our family and friends
  • Many people have been furloughed or asked to work from home
  • People have suffered from job losses and faced financial difficulties
  • And sadly some of us have lost loved ones

Adapting to life in lockdown hasn’t always been easy for anyone BUT despite the challenges we have faced we came together as one and faced the pandemic with kindness and strength.

  • We united in our goal to save the NHS and were successful. Thank you, Sir Tom and all our other heroes. We will never forget you and we will always remember your efforts, you are inspirations!
  • We clapped for our incredible doctors, nurses, key workers and children to show how much we appreciate all their hard work, dedication and/or resilience throughout the pandemic
  • We had to homeschool our children but that meant we also got to spend more time together with our children. We painted, we drew pictures and we made lots of memories
  • Our amazing scientists worked hard to develop vaccines to help us fight the virus and we’re now seeing progress
  • I believe that better days are ahead

Even though having to stay at home all the time was sometimes stressful (compared to a nurse or a doctor who has had to work frontline tirelessly throughout all of this I sound quite pathetic don’t I but truthfully, I did struggle some days) but it was during this time that I also got to make even more memories with my children and for that I am grateful. I have taken so many pictures and videos since last year and I thoroughly enjoy looking back at all the things we have done together and being reminded of what we have all been through and how we have all come out of this at the other side. I have all these memories to show my children when they are older of a time we lived through that we will all one day look back at and be like ‘omg can you remember when that happened?!’ Although this past year hasn’t been the best of times, I hope my children remember a happy time. Not a scary, worrying or sad time.

I think what I have learned most throughout this past year is that together we have faced what might be one of the toughest years of our lives but proven that when we face challenges together we can get through anything.

I am grateful for the lessons that this past year has taught me and I am even more grateful that myself and my family all have each other and our health.

What is something that you’re grateful for one year on from the first lockdown? Please let me know by leaving me a comment.

As always, thank you for reading and take care.

What to watch; Marcella

I know I’m wayyy late on watching and reviewing this one, the first series came out in 2016 but apparently it takes about twenty years to start and finish a series when you’re a parent but nevertheless, I did finally get round to watching all 3 series of the ITV drama ‘Marcella’ and I wanted to share with you my thoughts on this.

I love a crime drama and I also love Anna Friel so I was feeling pretty sure I’d like this series before I even delved into it and let me just say, it did not disappoint.

Anne Friel plays DS Marcella Backland who is portrayed as being a bit mean and moody and in my opinion, badass. As the series progresses, you learn more about Marcella’s life and you start to understand why Marcella is like she is. It’s because of this that I love her character; despite being deeply flawed, she is also passionate and fierce. Another thing to know about Marcella is that she suffers from a psychiatric disorder due to past trauma that causes her to black out during moments when she feels intense stress. This basically means that Marcella can suddenly ‘wake up’ hours after blacking out with no recollection of what happened, why or what she may have even done during that time. At one point during the first series, Marcella may even possibly be responsible for the murder of someone herself…

The programme ‘Marcella’ itself is dark, more than a little violent and sometimes even a bit distressing to watch but I don’t tune into a crime drama to feel uplifted. The first series is about hunting down a serial killer who likes to kill their victims by asphyxiation. Hardly keeping it light hearted are they? As someone who is quite easily spooked, you’d think I’d avoid watching something like this but this show appeals to my ‘imaginary’ detective side, I want to know more and I need answers. I love all the twists and turns of each series. Seriously, I was hooked to this show from the start.

So, those are my thoughts on the ITV drama ‘Marcella.’ If you too are a fan of crime drama like myself, I would 100% recommend this show to you. If you’ve already watched this show, do you agree? If not, what did you think of it?

I’m thinking of starting a ‘what to watch’ segment to my blog. A place where I share with you all what tv shows I’ve recently watched, what I thought about them and whether or not I would recommend them. What do you think? Is this something you’d like to read more of? Please do let me know and let me know what you think I should watch next by leaving me a comment!

As always, thanks for reading.

Less house, more home

I don’t know why but I felt compelled to write this blog post. As a mum, I do put a lot of pressure on myself to keep on top of everything. Some days I’m impressed by how much I actually accomplish – on these particular days me and the kids will have played lots, I’d have managed to make myself a hot drink (and drink it!) and the house will be gleaming (for about 5 minutes) and I’ll be feeling like a multitasking queen but there are also other days when the kids are screaming, the pots are piled high up in the sink and there’s washing to be done yet I just can’t seem to find a spare moment to get any of it done.

You see, this would have used to really annoy me, I used to hate the house being untidy but it just doesn’t bother me anymore. For me, I realised that there are more important things to do. Like spend time with family and do the things we actually enjoy doing. Now, I do like to organise and clean, I am naturally quite a tidy person and our house is by no means dirty but sometimes it is messy. Our house is by no means a palace. It isn’t big, it isn’t decorated in grey and white and kept immaculately clean at all times like these houses you see on social media but despite being small, it’s cosy. It isn’t decorated in grey and white but it is decorated to our taste, no matter how much cleaning and tidying I do, our house will never be immaculate but that doesn’t matter to me because our house is something much more important. It’s a home.

Please see pictured the shit we like to keep on top of the cupboards, random shite in front of bread bin and you can just about see kids toys stacked up over to your left hand side ready to be pulled back out all over the floor again.

Growing up, I’ve always been homely. I love being at home. My home is my safe place, my sanctuary and it’s where I love to be, surrounded by the people that I love the most. I can appreciate that these insta worthy houses that you see are appealing to the eye but none of that material stuff is really of any importance to me. All I’ve ever wanted for myself and my family is somewhere to call home and we’re lucky to have found that in the house we live in. I hope one day when my children are older they will look back on our home with fond memories and I hope they always come to think of this place as home, their home.

So, if you ever find yourself giving yourself a hard time over the house work that you haven’t quite had chance to do, or that bit of wallpapering that you know needs doing, don’t look at the beautifully furnished houses online and compare your home to theirs or wonder how they seem to be able to keep on top of everything while you are surrounded by never ending chores. You aren’t failing. You’re probably putting yourself or your family first instead of washing the dishes. Not that anyone should have to live in a filthy house or that I’m judging anybody that does have a beautifully decorated, perfectly spotless house, if that’s what makes them happy in life that’s absolutely what they should have but if you’re happy and your kids are happy then honestly what does it matter that you might need to mop the floors. If you ever feel like things are starting to get on top of you, just chuck on your coat, go for a walk, clear your head and then come back home. The house work will still be there when you get back but you’ll feel more up to doing it. The way I see it is that painting that picture or baking that cake together is so much more important than putting that pile of washing away, the house work can wait. When your children grow up, they won’t remember how clean your house was but they will remember all the fun things that you did together and a parent who always spent time with them. Our homes probably won’t be featured on any Mrs Hinch fan pages any time soon but that’s perfectly fine by me because I love my home, even the doggy nose prints on the window and that’s all that matters.

So, if you ever come to our house please be prepared for toys all over the floor, pet hair and paw prints. We are no means dirty or cluttered but we do have things on display, pots in the sink sometimes and clothes that need to be put away. But to us, it’s home.

Mother’s Day

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I really wanted to pop on and wish you all a happy Mother’s Day but Kora was feeling a bit unwell and was extremely clingy which meant I was unable to.

Sorry about this.

I’m not even sure what was wrong with her, she just had a temperature and a bit of a runny nose but it seems that both of those have disappeared now and thankfully she’s feeling much better today (phew!) Don’t you just hate it when your children are unwell? For me, seeing them unwell always makes me feel so helpless. Kora’s 18 months old now and this is the first proper time she’s ever been poorly – trust it to land on Mother’s Day of all days! The one day I might actually get to put my feet up for once! Ha ha. But I suppose that’s just the way it goes. Because being a mum never stops does it, not even for a day. Nevertheless, I still had a really lovely Mother’s Day yesterday.

I remember writing about Kory’s first time being ill and I was thinking of doing the same for Kora. Is that something you would be interested in reading about? Although I feel helpless when my children aren’t themselves, I like writing about all our experiences and all their ‘firsts’ (even the not so great ones) because I like to look back and I want to remember everything.

I got totally off track there – back to the point of this blog post – Mother’s Day. So although I had a grumpy and clingy toddler to contend with yesterday, it was still a wonderful day. I was given some lovely gifts, Kory made me a beautiful drawing and card at school, I had breakfast in bed and I even had dinner made for me too. It’s just nice to feel appreciated. Being a mum isn’t easy, in fact it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. It’s not that my kids are little terrors or anything; it’s the pressure we put on ourselves to be the best we can be, it’s all the responsibility that comes with being a parent and in my personal case, the doubts of whether or not I am actually in fact enough. So for one day, however brief, it’s nice to have some of that load lifted off.

I hope you all had a wonderful day too whatever your plans may have been. Please let me know how you spent the day by leaving me a comment. I understand that Mother’s Day means different things to different people. Whatever Mother’s Day means to you, I was thinking of you all yesterday and wishing you all the love.

Happy Mother’s Day,

Kirsti, xo

School

I made a promise to you all in my last blog post that I would update you all on our school situation. If you’d like to know more, please read on.

So, the last time I spoke about school with you all, Kory hadn’t got a place at his first choice school and rather than send him to the school where he had been offered a place, we decided to appeal for a place for him at the school we originally wanted and homeschool him in the meantime. (I think I explained our reasons for him not wanting to go to the other school in my previous blog post.) That was our plan anyway but it wasn’t as straight forward as we had thought it would be. Basically, our appeal was unsuccessful, despite being second on the schools waiting list there had been no movement within the school and no place became available for Kory. As time went on, it got to January and he had been at home learning with me for 3 months and as bright and clever as he is and as much as I loved having him at home, I’m no teacher and I could tell Kory was really missing socialising with children his own age and we figured it would just be best for Kory if we got him into a school.

A new year, a new start for him.

So we got the ball moving. We asked the other school if we could have a look around. We had a look around the school, showed Kory around, met his teacher and the head teacher of the school and long story short, loved it. Maybe even more so than the original school we so badly thought we wanted him to go to. His new school is much smaller and I like that about it. After that, it was a case of buying him all his uniform, school shoes and school bag and then he started with a couple of taster days just to get him familiar with the teachers and to get him used to going. Monday was Kory’s first proper day at school and this week will be his first full week there. And just like that, my once 4lb 7oz baby boy has gone off to start his school journey and I now have a son in reception.

Crazy.

Do I feel bad for not just sending him there to begin with? At first, yes I did. Just sending him right at the start could have saved a lot of stress for us, especially for Kory who was particularly upset and anxious when he first started his new school because he’d been at home for so long but I can honestly say, I tried everything in my power to get Kory into the other school because that’s where he wanted to go and I know it didn’t pay off but I don’t have to wonder ‘what if?’ I can say that there wasn’t a route I didn’t explore in trying to get Kory a place there. I will always fight his corner. With COVID going on, he’s not the only child who would have missed a lot of school this past year anyway, I think they all have to be honest. And although our plans didn’t pay off, something better fell into place instead and what matters is that he’s there and settled now. In fact he’s more than settled, he’s thriving. He’s adjusted a lot faster than I thought he would, he’s earned rewards, made friends but most importantly, he’s happy.

I really truly believe that sometimes the universe knows what we need before we do.

So, yeah. Kory is now at school full time, here’s to hoping they actually stay open this time! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling lost without him, from the day he was born he’s been by my side but seeing him start this new chapter in his life has been a great privilege and I am such a proud mum. I am so so proud of him I can’t put into words.

Thank you for reading this blog post, I hope you’re all well. How have your kids found returning to school now that they have reopened? Was they looking forward to it? Was you? Or were they/you feeling more worried or sad about it?

Please let me know.

It has been a while…

Well, it has been a while hasn’t it… I’ve taken breaks from blogging before but I think this is the longest break I have ever taken away from my blog since I started writing all those years ago.

I have to say, it feels good to be back already.

I wanna start by explaining my absence. You would think living through a worldwide pandemic and having to stay at home more would give me more time and the perfect excuse for me to write more but it actually did the opposite. Being home alone with two kids 90% of the time, trying to juggle taking care of them as well as playing, trying to keep them entertained, running a house and just trying my best to stay on top of everything proved to be quite difficult and didn’t leave a lot of time for anything else to be honest. Also, the longer I went without writing a blog post, the harder I found it to come back. I just didn’t know where to start.

What I described earlier might just sound to you like my usual, ordinary day to day life – which in a sense, yes it was but throw in trying to homeschool a 4 year old while running around after a screaming 1 year while I also try to make sure we all keep our sanity all at the same time added to everything else I was already struggling to keep on top of and made it even more difficult. I’m only one person and I honestly felt like I was trying to juggle so much, too much in fact, that I had to put my blog on the back burner for a while. Even if I didn’t want to, I had to focus on my kids first.

Today is actually Kory’s first proper day back at school now that they have reopened. (Yay!) Homeschooling hasn’t always been easy, there’s been tears from both me and Kory and however much I might be enjoying the quiet today, I also miss the chaos and I’m also incredibly proud of how well Kory has handled being off school and starting a new school. I love that boy. I wanna catch you up with all things surrounding our school situation, I think the last time we spoke I was appealing for Kory’s school place at his preferred school but that’s for another blog post. Which, now that Kory is back at a school, I’ve just the one child to keep alive, I don’t have to homeschool and I actually have a moment to myself, I promise all will be explained very soon. I’m quite excited to get back to writing actually, it has been wayyy too long.

How have you all been? Have you had to homeschool? How did you find it? Have your kids returned to school today also? If so, are you happy about that? I’d love to know!

So, I wanted to keep this post short and sweet, just a quick one to let you all know where I’ve been but more importantly to let you all know that I’m back! If you’ve missed me, I hope you will stick around to see what else I have to say.

As always, thanks for reading.

Halloween 2020

Halloween 2020… Like all things that have happened this year, I think we can expect Halloween to be a little different this year too. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t still be fun!

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. I just love everything about it, I actually think it’s kinda cool. I love the movies (Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare before Christmas, Ghostbusters, ect) – nothing too scary for me, i’m a bit of pussy when it comes to horror movies. The costumes, the sweets, the music, the decorating and just the overall atmosphere of this particular holiday to be honest.

With all of the uncertainty surrouding Trick or Treating this year, the ever changing rules and what is and isn’t allowed (if anyone knows and would like to fill me in, then please do as I am confused as f%ckkk) we have decided to go ahead and still have some of our own Halloween fun but to just make it a little different this year. If you’re unsure of what to do today for Halloween, please feel free to take inspiration from our ideas that I am about to share with you.

Here goes!

The house has been decorated, the costumes, make up, the food and the sweets have already been bought but instead of Trick or Treating this year, we are going to do our own little svanager hunt for Kory (Which is just as well really as it’s p!ssing down here.) I am going to leave notes around the house with clues on them that will lead him to his next lot of sweets. After that, we are going to have our own little Halloween party, just us and the kids. We are all going to be dressing up, there will be Halloween themed food, decorations and music. And for the Trick or Treaters, I am not going to be turning anyones children down this year or any year so I have decided to leave a bucket outside with bags of sweets already made up for children to help themselves to. That way they don’t even need to knock on our door but they will still have sweeties to take home with them.

So, that’s our plan for Halloween this year. I really believe that this year has been sh!tty enough without cancelling Halloween too. I’m not being careless, i’m fully aware of the current situation we are all living through right now but it’s all about adapating. At least for the time being anyway. So no, Covid-19. Me and my family will still be dressing up this year, we will still be leaving sweets and you will still find me at the end of the night stuffing my face with chocolate and toffees.

I hope you all enjoy Halloween today whatever your plans may be. Please do let me know what you’re going to be doing for Halloween this year by leaving me a comment.

Thank you for reading and I wish you all a Happy Halloween!
