Hello April | 2020


Hello there my lovelies, good afternoon, happy Wednesday and a very happy April to you all! I am so happy that March is over and we are onto a new month, however, how is it already four months into this year? I don't know about anyone else but that seems so crazy to me.

I started the month feeling really rundown, heartbroken, anxious and really struggling to try to get out of a horrible rut and dark hole. If you've read my Hello March article then you'll already know but for those who don't, at the end of February, I lost two family members really suddenly - my great-auntie Rosie (my Dad's auntie) and my uncle John (my mum's brother). Attending both funerals really broke my heart and brought back so many memories of my late Nan passing away. All I can think is that they're in a much better place away from pain.

Towards the middle of the month, my husband took me away for a little overnight break which done me a world of good. I really needed to get away for twenty-four hours, clear my head and come back home feeling in a better mindset and mind frame, I would highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with life right now.

In the middle of the month, we decided to stay isolated in our home due to the coronavirus. Due to my health always being up and down I didn't want to take any chances with being a crohnie and having some invisible illnesses. But thankfully that we have got our cooker in by an amazing hero who lives locally and wouldn't even take any money from us to do fit it - real hero right there! Are you isolating yourself due to the coronavirus?

March ended with me feeling worried but positive. There is a lot of unsure things happening in the world right now and I feel like the earth has sent us all to our rooms to think about what we have done and what we have caused. I am hoping that we can all take out of what is happened, be grateful for the people around us and be so thankful for all of the little things that we take for granted every single day.

Oh and on a little positive note, I would really love to know all of your thoughts on the picture in this post, please and thank you? I made it just before lockdown and wanted to share it as it was really easy to make the picture and wondered if it would be something that you'd like to see on my Instagram stories?

How was your March? Did you do anything exciting? Let me know your thoughts by leaving me a comment below, I'm sending you all so much love, kindness and happiness for a new month and Spring!

With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. March has been such a rollercoaster of a month with all the coronavirus news and the way that it has turned the world upside down - I think we're all a little anxious about what April will bring but I do hope that it turns out to be a good month for you!

  4. March was pretty rocky for me as well. I love your picture in this post by the way. I honestly thought about earth telling us to go to our rooms too, especially after I heard that the ozone layer is better.

  12. I'm so sorry for your losses Alisha, that's such heartbreaking news. I recently lost my Grandad at the end of February and his funeral we had in March, so I'm hoping for nicer things to come now (whenever that may be!) x
