A Lockdown Story:

By: Jaachi Mbanu 

Life before the pandemic was regular, busy and eventful. In fact, at some point it felt like the 24 hours in the day was never enough to get things done and then boom! It hit…

Jaachi aka Asian Butterfly and Family

It’s so funny how something that is invisible can bring about such tremendous changes in all of our lives.

Even though there hasn’t been any lock down of any sort here in Sweden, businesses have generally been slow. Well, this means more sleep hours for me. 😁 Multiple feeding times. 🤪 No school for the kids, which in turn means more work for me.

Smile, mummy loves you.

Also, more than enough time to develop myself. To study. 🤓 To pray, 🙏🏻and catch up on really cool movies.😎🎥

I guess it’s not entirely been a bad time, and we remain grateful in it all. 😊

A Note From Eden: Dear Sis Jaachi,
From start to finish, your story is one that is wrapped in glee. And even when you described the little ‘downsides’ here and there, the story still remains one that makes a smile crawl onto the readers face in every 1-2 lines read. You’ve always been an expert in not just multitasking, but also, in creating multiple colors of joy, love and peace in the lives of everyone around you. You make a rainbow out of every storm. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.


Much love!!

I don’t know the reason I was smiling all the way reading this. Not as lengthy as the others, but I love your story all the same! Beautiful

No school for the kids, more work indeed, but we can’t help but love the family times together. That’s what this phase has brought to me. The bond. We’ll no doubt come out of all these stronger!

Definitely not entirely a bad time

Yes o! When counting superheros of this time, they should count mothers too. Because we are the one managing everyone made to stay at home. No complains. But we deserve accolades.
