Woodster

Hello again!

Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. There’s been a global pandemic, I’ve been pregnant and now we have a little 7-month-old baby who joined our pack in August 2021.

‘Lockdown’ and ‘unprecedented times’ are three words I won’t miss when all of this is over. Over the last few weeks, I learnt to look at life so differently.
