Gosh what a month March was, I don’t think even a month ago we could have predicted what would happen. That the coronavirus would take over the world, schools would close and we would go into lockdown. The lead up to it was a bit rubbish too as my husband was away and the children and I had colds and a stomach bug. We went into isolation early as Aria has a cough. So Aria went into isolation on the 16th March and the whole family went then went into isolation with the guidance from the government the next day. But I am definitely finding that finding the positive in everyday makes a massive difference. So here is the things I have loved, read and watched in March.
- Being featured in Baby Magazine
- Running a week of great features on my blog for International Women’s Day
- Being forced to step outside of my comfort zone to teach the children I really didn’t think I could do it at first, but I have enjoyed stepping up to the challenge and coming up with different creative ideas
- Extra unexpected time with the children, and getting to learn more about them, spend time with them and get a real grasp of how well they’re doing at school too
- Time in the garden
- Extra reading time
- Focusing on getting a bit fitter along with the children
- Mother’s Day and spending time with my family, even if it was an isolated one
As I didn’t do an update in February I have put below the books I read in February and March which was 7 books.
I read the whole of the Tairen Soul series by C. L. Wilson which is five books which are in order: Lord of the Fading Lands, Lady of Light and Shadows, King of Sword and Sky, Queen of Song and Souls and Crown of Crystal Flame. I listened to the first couple as audiobooks when I was pregnant with Logan and remembered enjoying them, so decided to go back and read through them all from the beginning to the end. If you’re a fan of romance and fantasy, then these are great books with really involved plot developments and twists sent in the world of the fae and magic.
The last two books I have read are Safe for Now and What Happens After This by Suze Robinson. Safe for Now was a Kindle Daily deal I bought a while ago and decided to give it a whirl. I really enjoyed it, it was quite a page turned so went on to buy What Happens After This. Both of the books are a similar plot, but I still enjoyed them.
I’m not going to list everything I watched each month, but rather my highlights of the shows or films that I really enjoyed.
After loving Bohemian Rhapsody (it was so good I could watch it again). We decided to give Rocket Man a go. Which is the musical biography of Elton John. It was fun and great entertainment.
New Amsterdam Season 2
If you’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan, and really miss it then I would highly recommend New Amsterdam. Based around a Medical Director who is brought in to help a failing hospital. It’s a great mix of different characters and powerful stories. Inspired by a real life doctor.
Outlander Season 1 and 2
I don’t know why I resisted watching Outlander for so long as I do love a bit of a time travel romance. Part of me wanted to read the books first, but they’re so huge I kept putting off reading them. As soon as I started watching the TV show I loved it and wished I had started watching it sooner.
