For over a year now, with a short reprieve in the summer, we have been unable see family and friends. I didn’t spend Christmas with my Dad, he spent it on his own, for the very first time since my Mum died 8 years ago. I now haven’t seen my eldest son since Christmas when he returned to his flat in Edinburgh. I’m only 30 mins away, but it’s illegal to drive to Edinburgh from Fife at the moment. The world has gone slightly mad….
Home schooling hasn’t been a roaring success in our house. In fact on most days, it’s been a dismal failure. Future success now depends on the diligence and self-motivation of the child, only many children haven’t learned this skill yet -hell I even struggle with it and I’m pushing 50!
