For any mum, dad, or carer of school-aged children, The Time The Children Didn’t Go To School is a must-read. When the pandemic took hold, our homes became the classroom and our minds became the engine room of education. These diaries document that time, a hiatus of highs and lows, triumphs and tribulations, maths and masks, whining and wine, rainbows and rosé - how did we cope? Will we ever forget it? ‘Annabelle Hayes has provided a wonderfully honest and entertaining account of the year we realised we just weren't cut out to be teachers.From the abortive attempts to motivate wily children, the futile efforts to be a creative goddess whilst holding down a job and the ultimate surrender to the chaos of lockdown - I recognised it all!Every mum who resorted to bribery, domestic squalor and large quantities of cake and gin will read this diary and feel understood!’ Rachel Schofield, TV broadcaster and journalist and mum of two.
