March it’s gone…thank god for that!! #ItsaWrap

Wow, what a month, and a particularly scary month but a lot of learning to be taken from it. I was also really ill in the middle of the month, where I had to take time off, which I hardly do, just in case I had the virus. So I relaxed, which is unheard of, read some books and blitz Virgin River and The Stranger on NetFlix.

I did have some fun times! Before the world went crazy, I had a fab night in London as I went to see a band called Palaye Royale in Shepherds Bush, which led to an evening of beer pong after the gig and a long train ride home. I may or may not have been slightly drunk……….. It also led to my friend cracking up because she was so shocked to how a late 30 something quickly regressed into a screaming teenager as I recognised the lead singer of one of the support band!

I finally got to another Orenda book launch and caught up with so many lovely people, Jen, Mandie, Jacob and Mart, as well as the fabulous Karen. I however did not take any photos! But it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen!

The garden has bascially been demolished, the entire left hand side has gone, trees, bamboo and bushes. I have started to plant some stuff, it is amazing how different it looks.

Homeschooling and working have been such an experience. I have had parent guilt, but at the same time, I couldn’t ask for a better child at the moment. Normally one to drive me crazy, and she still does, but every morning we got up and she has ploughed through her work and is constantly asking me to learn French – I best get learning!

Looking forward to seeing the end of this, being able to see my family and go home, see friends and finally celebrate my birthday because at the moment it is just me and the mini one at home.

  1. You are right, it has been a very different month. I was in Florida until March 20th so am not doing my 14 days of isolation. I can’t even go out in my yard, so it has been pretty boring. Saturday, I can go out and start doing some gardening at least. Of course I have read a lot and my house is pretty clean. Hope this ends soon.
