In tears yesterday, our 11 Year old has spent lock down shielding with me. And as restrictions lift it's been increasingly difficult to get him to leave the home. With school.starting full time next week his.anxiety levels are at a high so hubby spent this last weekend taking him out and about just the two of them. To Argaty for a.dragonfly talk and them to Prestwick to plane spot.yesterday was his first successful attempt at shopping since February! :D he did impose some limits, only 4 close together, but with outside entrances and if people.weren't wearing masks he wasn't going. So they popped over to the Glasgow Fort shopping centre. Hubby said he told him, he had X amount and could buy what ever he wanted. He has unspent Birthday money and pocket money etc. Hubby said he checked out Smyths toys switch games, them.decided to buy the bump some things instead. He bought nothing for himself. He was so chuffed and excited when he came home showing off what he got from tk maxx, and Smyth's toys :* @smythstoys@tkmaxxuk@glasgowfort please thank your staff for making sure FACTS are followed in store. #wecandothis#proudmom#pregnancyjournal#itsokaynottobeokay#pregnancydiary#anxiety#covidpregnancy#factsscotland#lockdownpregnancy#love#smythstoys#glasgow#tkmaxx#covidguidelines#feelingpositive#positvevibes

There's still some sunshine here in the midst of Melbourne, even during a freezing cold midwinter week, even though Stage 4 lockdowns have started.
We may be stressed, we may be feeling anxious right now. But those sunny periods are still revealing themselves to us , and will increase as each week brings us closer to springtime. Look for the small joys in life, and celebrate the positive. #wecandothis#stillyouonlystronger
A moment before work ... the 3 days a week I put on a face & do my hair to encourage a sense of normality in this time of complete abnormality. We can do this Melbourne! (You’d think all this time at home I’d have dusted my mirror!!) #wheniwork#melbourne#lockdown#wecandothis#stayhome
After reading further today, sadly I have decided to close for the rest of the STAGE 4 LOCKDOWN period. I will acknowledge any enquires up until tonight and if you have placed an order, I will of course see it through.
I feel at the moment, it’s just becoming so so stressful and really taking its toll on my mental health.
Ultimately I’m thinking of the health and safety of myself, my family and of course, you my clients.
None of us are bigger than this pandemic and I feel I’ve toughed it out up until this point, however, I don’t want to get to breaking point, where, down the track I no longer have the love or desire to create cakes.
Please, please, please, stay safe, wear your masks, wash and sanitise your hands and look after each other.
We can do this Victoria.
We are a Proud State.
We are a Proud group of people.
Let’s get this time out the way and look forward brighter days... they will return.
Love Simone xx
(I’ll be on the email/ text for bookings when The stage 4 lockdown is over.. cookies and gingerbread will be available at both at The Little Elephant in Highett and two feet first in Chelsea)
Many of us have been suddenly thrust into a situation resembling homeschool that we were totally unprepared for. (Yes, even teachers. Because I can teach a lot of things but getting my very active 4 year old to practice writing his name on a daily basis while my 8 month old is hell bent on finding every tiny particle of heaven knows what on the floor and eating it while somehow I have to eat and shower and stuff is not something I prepared for as a teacher.)⠀
So while I’m not sure how I’m going to maintain a my own sanity I know I can lean on one small truth that always helps kids learn. Start where they’re at and keep it simple. ⠀
This looks like starting a writing habit by first letting your child decorate a notebook to give them a sense of ownership over their writing. ⠀
It looks like having your child write (or draw - yes! I mean it!) for only 5 minutes a day at first. ⠀
This looks like stumbling through just 1 or 2 words from that massive sight word list and figuring out how your kid has the most fun memorizing them.⠀
This looks like baking together instead of doing a fractions worksheet because your neighbor gave you a ton of zuchinni you don’t know what to do with and you want to comfort yourself with sugar filled buttery baked goods. (maybe just me?)
This looks like taking small steps today, spending mere minutes on academics, until you and your child build the stamina and know how to do it more proficiently at home. This is simple, but not easy. This strange season has become a marathon and it’s okay to pace ourselves for the long run. Our children aren’t going to perfect their learning today. ⠀

Beloveds, we're entering an incredibly powerful energy time called the Lion's Gate Portal, happening next Sat the 8th. But the portal energy is already being felt and let me tell ya: I feel exhausted but excited too! 🤪⠀
Even though Lion's Gate happens every year, I'm feeling this one to be very special. My guides have called it a "culmination point": helping us shift gears from the craziness of the 1st half of 2020.⠀
The reason this portal is so powerful is because it's lined up with Sirius: a mega star that is 20x more powerful than our Sun! So the Light Codes coming in are penetrating very deeply into our physical bodies and ancestral DNA.⠀
For me, this energy has been hard to manage. I feel tired to the bones but can't sleep. Yesterday, I was up til 2am, talking to the moon and twiddling my thumbs. 🤣⠀
I'm also experiencing old wounds resurfacing...or actually...it's more about the Light going deeper and exposing tiny roots of the wounds that are still there to be healed. 😁⠀
So I've been doing my best to move slowly, be kind to my body, go swimming in the ocean, and just breathe deeply. I know how tired we all are from the pounding that has been 2020. But know that the energies are shifting with this portal.⠀
If you've been doing your work, this portal Light will help you finish up healing of the little fragments of wounding that may still be present. Remember: the stronger the Light, the more deeply it penetrates. So don't be fooled into thinking you're back to square one. You're not. It's just this Sirius Light illuminating some last remnants of things you've been working on.⠀
I'll be talking more about Lion's Gate this upcoming week here on social media and YT. ⠀
🥁 AND DRUM ROLL...⠀
💥 I'll also be doing a Lion's Gate YT LIVE ACTIVATION next Sat (8th) at 2pm EST!! Can't wait to see you all there!⠀
Now over to you! How are you feeling as these portal energies intensify? 👇⠀
There’s a new “F” word in town, and we won’t give it power by saying it out loud! 😂😬😩. So return to your seats and fasten your seat belts cause it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Unless you’re @chrischandlermusic ...for some people it just adds a little bounce to their step... they use the uncertainty as fuel to get up and get stuff done! Queue Kelly Clarkson ‘Stronger’.
