Der mal völlig andere Einblick in mein Leben 😶 Ja die Schulen haben geschlossen. Wir als Eltern werden einfach als Lehrer eingesetzt. So habe ich mir mein Leben absolut nicht vorgestellt. Mit Homeschooling 🙈 Immer wieder höre ich von anderen Eltern, dass Ihre Kinder so viel Hausaufgaben aufbekommen haben. Davon kann ich echt nur träumen 😣 Ein Albtraum jeder Eltern. .
Wir haben leider den Nachteil, dass unser kleiner nach dem Schulwechsel, zurückgesetzt werden müsste. Auf der neuen Schule, waren Sie schon so viel weiter mit dem Stoff. Er konnte einfach nicht den Anschluss finden... Also durfte er seit Februar 2020 das 2. Halbjahr wiederholen in der 1. Klasse und jetzt dieser Schulausfall 😣 .
Wir haben eigentlich für 3 Wochen Hausaufgaben aufbekommen. Diese haben tatsächlich gerade mal 1,5 Wochen gereicht für unseren kleinen... Was nun Weiter arbeiten lassen und riskieren, dass er in der Schule sich langweilt oder Aufgaben aus der 2. Klasse geben Naja ich habe mich für zweiteres entschieden 🤷🏻♀️ kann es schaden, möglich. Bleibt mir was anderes übrig Leider nein 🤷🏻♀️ Also bekommt mein Sohn jetzt die Bücher aus der alten Schule fürs 2. Schuljahr um überhaupt etwas arbeiten zu können... Wie läuft es bei euren Mäusen Habt ihr viel oder weniger HA bekommen . Wie geht es weiter Wann machen die Schulen wieder auf Werden die Kinder einfach weiter gezogen oder müssen sie es wiederholen Fragen über Fragen 🙈🙈🙈 #workingmom #lebenmitkindern #homeschooling #dortmund #covid #schule #Schulschliessungen #hausaufgaben #mommy #familyfun #familytime #fitmom #familyphotography #rücksetzer #erfolg #ersteklasse #zweiteklasse #grundschule
With this lock down, leftovers are very valuable. For Swallows like Semo, all you need do is to put in a plastic bowl (covered) and store in the fridge or freezer. When it's time for the next meal, bring it out, put in a pot,add some water required for the new desired amount of Semo and bring to boil.Then add some Semo flour for the desired quantity and texture and leave to cook.
Tip: If the quantity of the leftover is just enough just add a little water and little amount of Semo flour to mould all together then leave to cook.
The take a look at my revamped Semo, lol☺️ I hope this helps.... Please let us all stay safe. This too shall pass in Jesus name.Amen
I was using @hellofreshau some time ago, but I found I just wouldn’t make the meals & would end up using the ingredients to make my regular dishes. It felt wasteful so I stopped using it.
Right now, this is such a perfect & easy solution for me. With the addition of Homeschooling now added to my working from home, time is not my friend!
Not only does this take the guess work out of meal prep, but I don’t have to go to the shops as often. In fact, I get to wake up with it delivered to my door step 😊
Today LM8 chose what we were having for dinner, she could read the menu, and help prep without instruction 🙌
I am so grateful I get to spend this extra time with my little ones & that we have these convenient options available to us in these difficult times. .
Think we nailed it, yes

Omg, im not sure what exactly happened in my kitchen this morning, but my 2 toddlers and i successfully managed to cover every single surface in cake batter (including the dog who cleverly positioned himself just under the marble worktop with the hope that a few little crumbs would drop into his mouth!) and burn the honey cake! What was left of it anyway! Anyway, after scraping away some of the charcoaled parts it tasted pretty good i have to say! During these crazy times im trying to teach my children how to cook. Its totally out of control and the kitchen always looks like a building site during and after a cooking sesh, but its totally worth seeing their little faces light up and at the end you hopefully have something yummy to eat!!!! No estoy segura de lo que sucedio exactamente esta manana en mi cocina, pero mis dos ninos (de 3 y 5 anos) y yo cubrimos cada superficie en la mezcla de la torta (incluido el perro!). Una explosion!!!!!! Cada vez que cocinamos juntos es un disastre en la cocina, pero es vale la pena ver a sus pequenas caras super feliz... aunque si quemas la torta, y destruir la cocina, como lo hicimos esta manana! #baking #kids #fun #honey #home #tablecloth #cake #breakfast #messy #torta #desayuno #hogar #mantel #cotton #familytime #enfamilia #cooking #tablescapes #tabledecor #tablesetting #niños #stayathome #children #organic #staypositive #share
I’m feeling less alone today. I’m seeing a lot of honesty from other parents saying that they’ve had enough of being stuck at home with their children. To an extent I’ve had enough too. I am jealous of those who get to relax and binge watch tv series and take up a new hobby. Where the house stays tidy, food stays stocked up and the house can be silent at times. A house where it is not noisy without tantrums, a child insisting on grabbing your face for attention or jumping on you constantly. To be able to just have some me time. The fact I see people complain about being in isolation and not having children stuck with them did upset me. But now I see things differently because everyone’s normality is changed. What is someone’s normal of going out every day is stripped and people are left alone with their mental health issues feeling worse. I am grateful for my son everyday and I would never change my life but sometimes I am jealous for those who can enjoy silence sometimes the same way those who are feeling stuck in the silence are wanting the noise and the joy of children. We will get through this. Maybe people will start to respect stay at home parents that bit more and realise just how stressful it can be and how there’s no escape to a work environment to have some silence or something to occupy them other than a child. We’re over a week in, there’s no end in sight yet but hopefully it’ll be soon. Hang in there everyone we will get there in the end and if you’re struggling too much inbox is always open. Slide into my dms!
Some positives of lockdown.
I am not stuck at home I am safe at home.
My home is my safe place filled with bits and pieces of our personality’s which bring comfort in difficult times.
I have time to keep my house tidy and clean and can enjoy being in a tidy house.
I’m not rushing about and I am taking things slow at my own pace. There is nowhere that I need to be.
I am less wasteful with food and have had zero food waste in weeks and have been pre preparing food for future meals and freezing to stop waste.
We aren’t wasting money and making the use of streaming subscriptions and toys around the house.
We are getting more creative with play and conversations.
We are spending more time as a family and less time apart. We feel more loved.
We are safe at home and all we have to do is stay at home when we can.
If you look closely you can see a rainbow! 🌈
I’ve found the last few days quite hard and I’m starting to feel a little depressed again. The corona virus has completely changed everyone’s lives and it’s such a scary time. We’ve worried about whether James can work and if we’ll have any money for food but it turns out he can work after taking a week of (loosing more income) following terrible advice changing daily from the government. Sadly James has already lost buisness due to places being closed exetera and we’re just hoping things pick up again soon.
Me and Elijah have quite an active social life and see different friends and family members every week. We go out to do all sorts from swimming to soft play and meeting people for lunch. We’re now having to go from going out at least 4 times a week some weeks to not going out atall. Elijahs had to stop going to his play groups and little kickers classes because of this lock down. Everyday he asks to see his friends, family and to do certain activities. It breaks my heart having to say no to every single thing he asks. The saddest thing is saying no to going to the play park behind our house as he can see it out of his bedroom window.
I am also feeling quite lonely in the respect that I seem to always be calling and checking in on family and friends and you know what nobody calls to check in on us. It’s quite hard when I always want to care for others but don’t get it back and sometimes I need that back even if I act like I don’t.
It’s been lovely having James of with us this week and I’m getting quite anxious about doing it alone again as I had been the weeks before. It’s quite stressful being stuck in with a toddler even if he’s being well behaved most of the time.It is hard not being able to go out for the day and burn of some energy or see someone else so we can talk about our feelings or see a fresh face.
One thing I will say I’ve gained from this is respect of my home. It really is our safe place and that my little family is all that I need in these scary times. Sending you all love and well wishes. Stay safe and please, please follow government advice! 🌸

Our garden is an over grown mess. I’ve spent a few hours killing the mould on the floor although the pressure washer isn’t working💆🏻 we’ve de weeded little bits but will do a bit at a time with no rush. At least we have the time now. However look at this beautiful butterfly bringing me hope ❤️
One thing I’m really finding is helping me through staying in every day is journaling. I’m enjoying relaxing and writing my thoughts down. As my counselling has been cancelled till may I am enjoying processing my emotions on paper it’s like letting everything out and also using my brain at the same time 📖 🖊
