Single Parent Getting After It

Crazy crazy times right now. Do you feel like you’re in some kind in bizarre science fiction movie?

Personally, I feel remarkably fortunate. I live in an amazing house with more space than three humans and a stinky bulldog need, a massive yard with entertainment galore, plus the kids and I are drowning in toys and devices. The foreshore areas surrounding our postcode provide endless exploring hours and invaluable family time.

After 461 days without Lou and the trauma of trying to keep her alive. This Isolation mandate is effortless.

My work has definitely suffered, homeschooling is a serious challenge and sometimes I feel like pulling the arms and legs off my children as I would torturing a persistent grotty fly. But, all in all, I have nothing to complain about. I’m truly fortunate.

It takes just a micro thought to picture children in poverty, families in detention centres, people that are dying and those dealing with lost love ones during this global epidemic.

Right now I’m bunkered down with my two favourite people in the whole wild the world. We are healthy, we have each other.

Stay safe out there.
