With us spending so much more time at home*, it’s more important than ever to create the right vibe which for me, means calm, uplifting and kinda adult. I CANNOT imagine navigating our days without music, so here’s my latest playlist, curated especially with the extra slow, spring days ahead of us in mind. Hope you enjoy it!

Two weeks since the Government announced the closure of all UK schools, ten days with our children at home with us all day, and five million memes later (my fave), here’s what I’ve learnt so far during lockdown:

There’s little else on most peoples’ minds these days besides the COVID-19 pandemic. Here in the UK, we’re in lockdown as Boris Johnson announced a series of strict new measures to fight the outbreak declaring it a “moment of national emergency” asking us all to stay at home.

I’m sure we’re all following the news fairly avidly right now but as always, it’s the personal stories surrounding Covid-19 that interest and move me the most. I asked you guys how Covid-19 is impacting you, and the responses were overwhelming. For our part, we very sadly had to pull out of my cousin’s wedding this weekend after Abe was displaying symptoms for a baby. (He seems fine now, thankfully). Really gutting though. There were so many heartfelt answers, from different walks and corners of the world, and everyone with a story to tell. From awful snippets of loneliness, anxiety and job loss to real hope for the future, here’s just some of the ways coronavirus is affecting you and your loved ones. And thank you so much for taking the time to share your stories with me…

Do they settle well? Do they wake each other up? What happens if one is a super early riser? All THREE of our kids share a room, so I’m answering all these questions and more over on my YouTube channel

Dearest little one,

I hear your cries and glance at the clock – 04:18. By now I know it’s futile to delay going to you, you’re not going back to sleep alone. I stumble back to the room you now share with your brothers and to your crib for what I later calculate must be the eighth time that night (it started around 1am and you average twice an hour) and simultaneously, in my blurry state, start writing snippets of this blog post up in my head.

It’s been a while since I last wrote an update specifically about you kiddos – somewhere between Jack starting school, pregnancy, moving house and giving birth, there just hasn’t been the time but as I lie in bed with you Abey baby snoring next to me after a miraculous night’s sleep (you slept through – and after months of wake ups every hour, this truly is miraculous although also I’m assuming, a total fluke!), I suddenly felt an urge to document where you’re all at.

This is my 93 year old grandma, Beatrice. She’s who I turn to when I need some uncomplicated advice and sound truths; her flat is where I take the kids after school when we need to change things up and get some fishfingers and chips in them with a bubble bath to boot; she’s the one that will coo over Abe endlessly and dangle toys in front of him whilst I can nip to the toilet or make a phone call, and who by the way, tells me every time I see him, what an absolute blessing he is, which is always so special to hear. She’s amazing, and she’s very much part of my village.
