There’s nothing that I actually need for the home but when I do look to replace anything, it’s generally in this already busy phase just leading up to Christmas. It’s all going to be very different this year. usual venues are having to shut down for the second lockdown period.

It’s incredible how many people have taken to cake making and learning skills they would at one time have ignored, thinking that was just from Grandma’s day! I know several younger families who have spent weeks and weeks readjusting to life inside the home.
