Isn’t it strange to think that by next week, children will be back in school for the first time since March? As much as lockdown dragged, the summer holidays have flown by. We’ve left it late as usual in terms of buying school uniform, so that’s our plan for today. For the first time in months, I have quite a bit of work hanging over me. Having taken on various different freelance contracts over the past few months, they are all starting to pick up the pace as businesses start to reopen. We’re all ready to start getting back into…

A family day out at the SS Great Britain

For the first time since lockdown, I’m having to consult my diary to remember what we’ve been up to this week. It has been remarkably busy. When we were in full lockdown, I appreciated the break from constantly being on the go. But now that we’re easing ourselves back into life gently, I’m quite enjoying it. It’s great to see the children playing with their friends again and to start catching up with some friends myself. The best version of normal It has been interesting to see how different places have interpreted the covid compliance rules. We’ve been for a…
