2020- A Year We Will Remember

2020 a year we will remember
Prints are from Desenio  and gold frames are from Ikea
2020 is the year of change, the year no one will forget and some say the year which has been cancelled. I believe 2020 will be the year we realise who our real heroes are, and hopefully the year we all unite and try and overcome racism and discrimination. I read a quote on instagram which really made me think: 'there are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.' I feel the past few months so much has happened and personally my mental health has been all over the place. From understanding and grasping motherhood, to living in a pandemic and now witnessing the world we live in where in the 21st century so many are experiencing hate, discrimination and unjust actions for being a certain way or looking a certain way.

The past few days have been tough to say the least and a teething baby does not not help to the pressure. Sometimes as mothers, we are expected to be superheroes and only if it was really that easy.  I have been reading and seeing so many hurtful and inhumane stories, but hopefully change will come.

Zak is now almost 10 months old, and I have started to think about returning back to work- but the anxiety is hitting me hard. Firstly, being a key worker means I will be more exposed to the coronavirus than a normal person staying at home. My husband is also a key worker, therefore it is almost like double the exposure. Secondly childcare, my initial plan was to split Zak between, being with his grandma and enrolling him into a nursery- but at the moment although some nurseries are open, I personally do not feel comfortable dropping Zak off to one. And as per current guidelines Zak cannot go to his grandma's house without having social distancing- which is impossible for a 10 month old. So currently going back to work seems like it will have to wait a little longer but I guess that is the advantage of being self employed.

Hope you have had a better week.

As always, thank you for reading.

With Love,
