I’m not commuting anywhere, meeting in person at coworking spaces or hosting parent-friendly meetups (yet) but it’s amazing what you can do with an internet connection while babywearing these days.
I’m almost halfway through the fourth trimester and trying to relax as much as I can. We’ve all been home for most of January, everyone is well thanks to help from family and friends and we’re getting used to our new routines.
As I get ready to sloooow it down and go through the final weeks of this pregnancy, I am reminiscing about all of the places we’ve been and things we’ve explored both before and after becoming parents, in England and Canada.
I’ve always snapped photos of everyday things in the places we’ve lived and shared them mostly on this blog or social media. It feels nice to capture moments in time and connects me to the places I explore. If it brings me delight and joy, then perhaps others will find some too?
Thanks to this pandemic for showing me I’d much rather label school supplies in between attending virtual Startup Canada gov consultations, recording podcast interviews and doing freelance work.
Besides sleeping, reading fiction, growing a human that is determined to slow me down and supporting small businesses, this is what I’ve been up to lately.
I’m fine but this post is less highlight reel, more reality and look at what I’m not doing right now because my life is changing.
As the mum of two Cancer season kids and a friend to many water sign babies, I feel all their feels and can’t believe I am now the parent of two 5 and 3 year olds…who can pretty well outrun, outcry and outcreative me any day of the week.
Since birth, throughout the infant, toddler and now school age stage, I’ve been nurturing an appreciation for small business, good coffee, the arts and impromptu on street performances in both our first home (London, England) and our current home (Ottawa, Canada).
