Freelance life never fails to take me by surprise. One moment, I’m merrily ripping down cupboards to decorate the kitchen. Safe in the knowledge that I’ve got no work on. I’ll easily get the whole lot painted and put back together within a few days. The next moment, my three email accounts for different jobs are all going mad and I’ve got a months worth of work lined up for the next week. It looks like the kitchen will have to wait, thank goodness nobody is allowed in our house for the time being. History When I was at school,…

The one thing most of us have in common when we’re Christmas shopping is an awkward recipient. The person who already has everything. They probably say that they don’t want anything.

Here we go again, back to lockdown. Hasn’t 2020 been the strangest year? A couple of news reports yesterday suggested that there was a small chance a vaccine may be ready by Christmas. Realistically, that means that the vulnerable will be receiving it between Easter and Summer next year. Whilst that seems a long way off, we have to accept it as a positive sign. It’s amazing how quickly the vaccine development has progressed. At least it gives us hope that 2021 might not be such a washout. Business as usual I feel exceptionally lucky this time around that lockdown…
