I don’t have kids so haven’t included anything about entertaining kids but will try and find a guest poster for that one 🙂

Let me know what you’re keeping yourself busy with if self isolating or just spending more time hanging out at home. I’m planning on being really productive (as long as I don’t get sick!) and finally do all the things I’ve been wanting to do for ages like sorting my photos (hello 70,000 photos on my iPhone!) and sorting my expenses now rather than leaving it until the last moment in December.

Stay safe everyone and please so share what you’re up to at home.

Much love
