Hello, happy Monday! I hope you’re well. Another week in lockdown has passed by and it is getting harder to split myself between all of the requirements of life! I’m looking forward to the day when I have some childcare again, although I’m sure I will miss Daisy too! Living Arrows 18/52 – The great work from home juggle!

Living Arrows 18/52 - The great work from home juggle - Daisy and me in my office while I try to work.

Daisy has been very well behaved, and mostly nicely mannered, especially considering we have been home together, without seeing anyone else, for more than 7 weeks now. I have been surprised at how grown up she is now, and how she listens fairly well!

The last week has mostly been spent indoors because of the rain. Our house needs new guttering, and roof work, which means even in a small shower the outside patio area is flooded with water and it makes the entire downstairs muddy. Daisy LOVES this though and we did get outside, with her wearing wellies, to jump up and down in the muddy puddles!

Hopefully, this week passes by as fast as last week did! It felt like it was Wednesday before I even blinked, which I suppose is a positive. I don’t usually like to wish the time away but honestly, if lockdown could be over now that would be great! We haven’t even been out for a walk, as I don’t want to risk it, but I know this is all temporary so I’m going to keep working around my home and spending time with my family.

I took this photograph of Daisy and me in my office. I was trying to get some work done and she asked if she could watch me. This typically involves looking at my computer for about 15 seconds, asking me to open a page so she can type letters and numbers and then drawing together in my best notebook. I like these little interactions during my day. It is hard trying to juggle everything but I’m just staying calm, making a #KickerList each day and trying my best!

That is such a lovely photo! The juggle is definitely real right now. I'm starting to really feel the lack of time to myself and trying to do everything. It's hard! x

I am the same trying to juggle it all and often am typing away with my youngest on my knee. Its taking time to get used this new way of working but I embracing all the additional time spent with my kids.

It's much the same here. I'm glad I can still make some money from home though!

Its so hard isn't it, I am struggling with working from home and home schooling at the moment. Cannot wait for life to get back to normal. My boys are 12 and 10, I would love to say that they have been well mannered, but would be a bare faced liar if I said that.

I only work from home one day a week and it's sooo hard to juggle it with homeschooling my twins! I don't know how some people are managing it every day! :) #livingarrows

It is such a juggling act at the moment isn't it! Hope the weather is better with you this week so you can head out in the garden a bit more. x #livingarrows
