Things I Loved February 2021


For years now I have written a monthly post of the things that I have loved from the month gone by, a sort of happy post to record things we did and things that made me happy from the month gone by. Due to the pandemic, I have not really blogged much the past year and the last time I wrote a things I loved post was back in May and before that it was in January 2020. 

2021 hasn't got off to the best of starts has it? We have started the year in our third lockdown and the children have been off school for months again. I found this lockdown so much harder than the previous two, I think it was because the weather was rubbish and home-schooling was so time-consuming this time around. Even though we have been at home and haven't been anywhere or done anything we have still had a nice time as a family, well some of the time. So here is a little look at some of the things that I loved in February 2021.

A Little Update 2021

 Hello, long time no see. 

It feels like forever since I last sat down and wrote a blog post. This little old blog of mine (the blog is 7 years old now) has been very neglected the past couple of years - first the wedding, starting a degree and then of course the past year we have been living through a pandemic. I just haven't had the time nor the inclination to blog apart from the odd post here and there. 

The past year has been tough, hasn't it? 

Like a lot of people my mental health has suffered, I suffer from anxiety (nope not just saying that to jump on a band waggon I genuinely have it after my mam's sudden, accidental death when I was younger). My anxiety centres around me dying and leaving my children without a mam or my children dying, I know that sounds crazy and morbid but when you lose a loved one so suddenly it changes you forever. So people dying in the news every day and hearing about people on life support machines has been a huge trigger for me, as my mam was on life support and it is not nice and it is not something you ever forget.
