Why INEOS Hygienics Hand Sanitiser has become part of our school routine [AD]

If you had told me this time last year that back to school would be so different by this September, I don’t think I would have believed you. One little positive that has come out of Covid-19 is that children really seem to appreciate school now. Whereas they once dragged themselves out of bed, these days there seems to be rather more enthusiasm. It’s amazing how going without something can increase gratitude for it. With the children so keen to be back at school, it now seems even more important to keep them well. That’s why INEOS Hygienics Hand Sanitiser…

Things seem to have settled down a bit here this week. We’ve relaxed into our routine and things are starting to seem normal. Masks are a part of everyday life, even for the children. Personally, I’m filling my time while they are at school although not in the way I thought I would. Work is very all or nothing and sometimes, there’s not as much work available as I would like.

Mainly due to its beautiful little reservoir…

Hasn’t it been a treat to see the sunshine again this week? Just when we thought autumn had arrived, the summer reappears for a few days. I’m pleased to say that we absolutely made the most of it with river swimming, paddle boarding and even a night away in the camper van. A bonus night away Isn’t it funny how just one night away stretches the weekend out to seem like a holiday? On Saturday once I’d fitted in a run and a bit of work, we packed up the van and drove to a campsite just 45 minutes away.…
