I’ve been quiet on the blog recently -still doing things behind the scenes – but blog posts have been tough to write. I started penning one in the early hours, but scrapped that as soon as I woke up. What is there I can possibly say at this moment?
Life as we know it has changed completely… and boy don’t we know it!
Week One – Eat The Cake!
When we are busy, we long for chill out time; now that we have that chill out time, we are realising it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! Keeping occupied (and sane) is somewhat harder than expected. Homeschooling full-time is a totally new concept and it’s hard to find motivation when I have to try and squeeze work in too, but we are getting there.
Don’t stress and eat the cake!
Don’t worry about the fact your child isn’t completing 6 hours of school work a day. Take a step back, breathe and tackle little bits one step at a time. This is a huge life lesson for us all… old and young! With so many online resources offering their services for free during the Covid-19 situation, you will find you are all online more than you would expect, but embrace it. Do bits, take breaks, have fun, bake cakes… and then eat!
Eat the Cake!
OK, so I didn’t bake all of that, the delicious cake above is a reminder of my birthday afternoon treat last year, but scones are indeed keeping me going at the moment! Sod Keto... give me all the carbs you have!
Comfort eating is definitely keeping everyone going at the moment, do not feel guilty about it in any form! Tensions are understandably rising and will continue to do so the longer the lockdown and Covid-19 persists. How long this will continue is a guessing game at the moment, but even I would punt a bet on the fact this will extend beyond an initial 3 week lockdown!
Waking up daily to more ‘Breaking News’ notifications on your phone is a draining way to start the day. If you are looking things to take your mind off it all, how about entering giveaways? There are currently two giveaways on Sim’s Life, with more to come…

I will be posting during the next week in the run up to Easter, hopefully it will be a non-Covid-19 related post. I don’t know about you, but all the information is a huge weight to take on and it’s nice to be distracted by something that releases you from reality for a time. In the meantime though, just remember:
DO: STAY IN
DON’T: GO OUT
