Being a parent to a young child (my daughter is 18 months old), trying to work from home, worrying about friends and family, all during a global pandemic, can start to feel a little much, can’t it?
I imagine I am one of millions of people in a similar position; having family both younger and older than me to worry about, fretting about the economy, trying to stay safe myself and trying to work out exactly what it was about toilet rolls. You, like me, might find yourself shouldering more responsibility than you thought you ever would and wondering what you used to do with all that spare time you must have had previously. All credit to you if you are now home-educating on top of everything else that is going on. Whilst my daughter isn’t yet in school, I can imagine you have kids who are currently asking you what SOH CAH TOA means, wanting an example of an adverb, and if “Est-ce que tu parles français?”
There is no doubt, it’s tough at the moment. Through this blog I can hopefully bring some respite and some ideas of how you can incorporate wildlife and nature into your current situation – you’re doing the best you can so be kind to yourself!
