Working, Schooling and Homeschooling the Twins

I have deliberately avoided writing about Coronavirus on here because I don’t want to dwell on it. There’s enough news about it everywhere else and I don’t want to add to the hysteria going on, but it is becoming more and more difficult not to talk about it. This pandemic is affecting lives all over the world. The kiddies are now homeschooling from today due to this virus. So I am now supposed to work, study and homeschool the twins all at the same time. This will take a lot of planning and determination, but I am sure we will work it all out. Health and safety comes first, and I support the powers that be in this decision.

Working from home

I will be blogging as usual. The topics will vary as they usually do. Do not expect to see topics on Coronavirus on the confusion it is causing. I am rising above that and talking about other things no one seems to be talking about. If you need a good distraction from the current pandemic, you may find the blog posts really interesting. I will also carry on doing my other online jobs and see where the opportunities take me.

Schooling from home

Like many of you know, I started studying with The Open University last year. It has been going really well. I am self-motivated, so I do what needs to be done and I am also really enjoying studying the modules. However, it has been a lot harder to concentrate with all what is going on in the world. Luckily, I have managed to stay on top of my study and assessments somehow. This will carry on as normal.

Homeschooling the Twins

Homeschooling the twins is the biggest change. Normally, the kids are in school for a good few hours and I use those hours to get work and uni jobs done. At the moment, this is no longer the case. Schools are closed here indefinitely and I are meant to homeschool the twins. Fitted this in is the hardest part of all but it has to be done. The twins are in year 1 and are exceeding their targets, I won’t want them to fall behind. So we will be following the curriculum from home as much as possible, to keep them engaged.

If you are stuck at home and wondering how to engage the kids, you should try out these YouTube channels below.

Cosmic Kids Yoga

This YouTube channel focuses on mindfulness, yoga and relaxation for kids. We watch the videos and they are really nice, the twins love them. The videos are adventurous and they help children build strength, balance and confidence.

Little Sports

This YouTube channel has loads of workout videos for kids. For those of us that are unable to go out as much, you can still get the title ones moving with these videos. They are also great for indoor activities on rainy days.

I usually join in with the kiddies and I enjoy the videos too! If you are stuck indoors and wondering how to spend a few minutes keeping the kids moving, you should check out these videos. Safe stay.

Goodbye 2019 and hello to a new decade

I can’t believe I am actually saying goodbye 2019! Today is the last day in 2019 and it is amazing to see how far I have come this year and decade. 2019 was a year of lots of ups and downs for me personally. The ups outweighed the downs which is good. The downs were really more about me finding myself and seeking my higher self in moving forward with my goals and aspirations. I am glad the year has ended on a high note. I have spent the last few days just resting up and chilling with the family.

This holiday is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time. I can’t remember the last time I took so many days off at once. My laptop has hardly gone up these last few days and I am not stressing over the fact that I am not working (like I normally do). I am just taking things very easy which is not how I usually roll. I usually work even when I am on holiday but I decided not to do so this time. The mind and body needs rest and that is exactly what I am giving them, good old fashioned rest.

I am looking forward to the year 2020 and what the new decade brings. I really don’t do the whole new year resolutions thing because I tend to forget all about them by March/April.  When it comes to goals, I prefer to stick to monthly goals so I make sure I smash them. That will carry on into the new year as normal. My goals are not usually shared as well as I don’t see the point in doing so but I may share them after ticking them off the list 😊

Regular blog posts will resume in the new year. I have many give-away posts lined up as well as review posts and I am looking forward to publishing them all. Until the next post, wishing you all a very happy new year. I hope 2019 was good to you and I pray 2020 is even better for us all.

Goodbye 2019! See you in 2020!
