Eleven Days of Separation

Eleven Days of Separation

Written 11th February 2020 I’m going to write this to document our separation however I’m unsure whether it will ever be published. It will depend on how things go and whether Ric is happy with me publishing it. I’m going to write it anyway. In times of stress, I find getting my thoughts out in my writing very helpful.  Let’s start at the beginning… Eleven days ago, on the 1st of February, my husband and I decided that our marriage…

2020 Review – Well that was unexpected!

2020 Review – Well that was unexpected!

It’s almost laughable to do a 2020 review, isn’t it? Who knew when I was writing them, at the end of 2019, a global pandemic would hit?! Covid 19 pretty much put a stop to any plans we all had. With that, any goals for 2020 were pretty much null and void. So I’ve decided that instead of two posts: reviewing the year and goals for the new year. I’d combine it all into one.

AD | Jack’s Supermarket

I was partial to a bit of Supermarket Sweep with Dale Winton when I was younger. Therefore, when Jack’s Supermarket got in touch as asked if I’d like to work with them I was quite excited! Immediately images popped into my head of me running about the Jack’s Supermarket Wakefield, throwing random items into my trolley and the odd blow-up banana too. The reality wasn’t quite that (social distancing and the people of Wakey thinking I was a madwoman) but…

Lockdown Wins

Lockdown Wins

The CoronaVirus pandemic has been something that many will never experience. It’s something that our children will be telling their grandchildren about. Their grandchildren will learn about at school and talking about how when Grandma Becka had Covid 19! Lockdown 2 was dominated by this and being apart from the kids. With school still open it’s a little different to Lockdown 1 and that’s the one I was to reflect on. It doesn’t bare thinking about the tragedies of the…

Beauty Pie Review

Beauty Pie Review

When I became single, I realised that I wasn’t going to get a “big” present at Christmas or for my birthday so decided to treat myself to a monthly subscription as a treat. My membership for Beauty Pie was born after a few of the people on my Instagram were showing off their “Pie Day”. I figured I’d try it out for a few months and see what I thought. Six months on and there is no going back! So without…

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably have seen that I separated from my husband at the beginning of the year. It’s now six months on and I thought I’d write down a little of what’s gone through my head during my new single mum life.

Separation – How To Tell Your Children

Separation – How To Tell Your Children

It’s been five months since my husband and I separated. This is probably the first post I’ve written on the topic. I do have other posts that I wrote in the days and weeks following it. However, it’s not time to share them yet. I think for most parents, the most worrying aspect of this situation is telling the kids you are separating. I’m no expert but I have been through it recently. Like with most of my blog posts,…

Returning to School after CoronaVirus

Returning to School after CoronaVirus

At the beginning of June, Lucas returned to school after nine weeks following the global pandemic. When it was announced that reception, Year 1 and Year 6 would have the opportunity to attend school again, I battled with my conscience. Would Lucas be returning to school after CoronaVirus?It definitely wasn’t a quick decision.
