Getting Through Lockdown

Oh my word the last few months have been weird. In the weeks preceding lockdown I had come to the realisation that my mental health was really suffering and I needed some help, but then of course it became a lot harder to come by.

Diggerland Kent

Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to be guests at Diggerland Kent. We had a fabulous time but then lockdown happened and it just didn’t feel like the right time to be writing about this great day out we had enjoyed, that now, no one else could. With the easing of restrictions it’s great to see that Diggerland is back and ready for visitors so here is a little bit about our experience.

New Scooby Doo Toys

L has spent the last week playing with some of the toys from the new Scooby Doo range from Character Options to celebrate the launch of the new movie, Scoob! in the US. 

He’s had a blast with them, they are so fabulous. 

We got a multi pack of figurines, including Scooby, Shaggy, Dick Dastardly, Blue Falcon, Black Rotten and Dusty Rotten. Then he got the Mystery Machine as well and it is awesome.

Astonish

I’m actually not minding this lockdown. I’m at home with my family and other than going to work in the evenings and our daily walk for some exercise I’m staying put. 

Astonish

 L and I are doing a little bit of school work everyday, he reads me a book, I read him something. We practise his writing, do a little maths and then we’re out in the garden. There’s been lots of football, we’ve planted seeds, we’ve even got a tub of frogspawn.
