So as we continue in this mad world, whilst we are here loving life as new parents we hope you guys are all safe and well!
We are hitting all those new challenges that new parents face; sleepless nights, pooy nappies. Along with the giggles, raspberries and smiles. Learning to roll over is the latest achievement but only one way at the moment – however many times we try and push baba the other way she is not ready and we have just got to wait until she does it in her own time! A stubborn one just like her mummy and daddy! Oh dear that will be 3 of us!!
So life right now is a bit, well, ALOT different to how we knew it some months back and as we all crave to go back to that way of life, I think day by day we are all slowly starting to realise and find it difficult to accept that life isn’t going to be like it was.
Well, certainly not for a little while longer and as those dreary rainy days continue and the nights begin to draw in, our mood begins to become gloomy and low. With the impact of COVID-19 constantly in our faces; on the news, when we go outside and play dodge as we walk up the street, to shops where we have to wear a mask and duck out the way of others while frantically using hand sanitiser after everything we touch… it’s not just me is it? Who could have ever seen this coming!
Having had a baby during all of this, I am sure my OCD issue has increased! Having spent lots of time at home it encouraged me to focus on my goals, occupy myself with something more challenging to keep my brain active! So while baby naps I find myself dashing around at a million miles an hour doing all the house chores like never before! Which then means I can grab half an hour to an hour at my laptop working on our business Luella York
It is great fun and means there is no 2 days the same during lockdown life! One day we are working on branding, another marketing strategies, the next writing blogs, to sourcing new products, designing our ranges – you get it, pretty busy really!
This new way we are currently living certainly has come as a reality check, completely out of the blue and not being able to visit family and friends and show off our new baba is heartbreaking for us. But we know that everyone has there own issues and it is impacting us all in different ways.
What is has definitely taught us so far it that; when life throws challenges at us, you just have to take it head on an adapt to a new way of life. Do your bit to help others that are suffering and hope that this is natures way of telling us all to re focus and make sure you do what is important to you in your life.
Do you have any dreams you would like to achieve? If the answer is yes, then set yourself some small goals and go for it – but remember – something my boss always taught me – “you can’t eat an elephant in one go, you have to do it in bitesize chunks!”
