A taste of freedom
I don’t know about you, but that little slice of freedom tasted good, before the weather turned again and BBQs in the sunshine were replaced with snow showers!
Finally, after weeks and weeks confined to our homes, lockdown is beginning to ease. And with beautiful weather across much of the country, I’m sure that plenty of us are taking the opportunity to meet with family and friends over the next few days.
It’s been a reflective time for the whole country this week, as we marked a year since the first national lockdown.

No whip cracking
It’s half term this week, which means our girls are at home…no change there then!
