AAAAHHHHH!! What is going on right now!!??

I don’t know about everyone else but this is testing my mind! And my patience. I have a 5 year old at home who, every two seconds, utters the word “MUMMY!” If I’m gone for even a millisecond, it’s “MUMMY where are you?”

However, I try to remind myself that my situation could be worse. I try to be grateful during this shitty time.

Before lock-down, I was walking once or twice a day. I found myself looking forward to it (this is a bloody miracle). I feel better breathing in the fresh air and taking in the beautiful sights of where I live.

I’ve loved not hearing cars driving past. Just silence. Well, as silent as it can be when you’re with the chattiest 5 year old ever. (wonder who she gets that from?)

COVID_19 is something I’m struggling with. I don’t have it, but am struggling with the implications of it.

I'm someone who HATES staying in. I also hate being told what to do.


Being told I can't go on my daily trip to Asda to buy stuff that I don’t need is very testing!

Being so restricted has caused a lot of emotions to surface. Emotions I’m not sure I’m ready to deal with. Unfortunately, I don’t have a choice.

As I said before, I’m trying to be conscious of the good things and remind myself that I’m not alone. When I’m struggling to cope with these emotions, I remind myself that, even though it’s extremely difficult, so many of us are in the same boat.

I love a little self care time. Now more than ever. Going for a really hot bath, coming out and moisturising my whole body and relaxing once I’m done, really helps me!

I lie in the bath and reflect on what's been bothering me. Once I’m done, I like to think my thoughts have been dealt with and are washed down the plug hole. Like I'm releasing them.

It sounds silly, I know. I’m 30, not 5. Each to their own thought!

As I’m typing this, my daughter has just informed me that she can speak dog! This is how my days are going!

Stay safe everyone. Woof woof x
