Call me Mrs Marigold
I hope you had a superb bank holiday and really enjoyed the weather? It was absolutely glorious here at the Farm, which made relative lockdown all that more bearable. It was great to spend some time with the girls, because there’s zero doubt that things are ramping up here, and we’ll be very busy for the next few weeks.
The summer of the staycation
Summer 2020 – they’re calling it the ‘summer of the staycation’. With borders closed, flights grounded and travel restricted, we’re all going to be spending more time at home than we usually would.
If you tuned into Boris’s speech on Sunday night, watched the news conferences, or you’ve done anything online, you’ll know that the emphasis of the Government’s message has changed. As we move into this next phase, they seem to be slowly encouraging society to get back to something approaching normality, whilst remaining alert and vigilant to prevent the spread of the virus.
Bank Holiday Plans
Got any plans for the bank holiday? We’ve got a big weekend coming up – it’s a family wedding, so we’re heading to France, for what should be a fantastic occasion; love, laughter and lots of wine. Not really.
Investing In A Garden Building: Five Things To Look Out For
So you’re looking for a garden building. Good for you. Whether you’re after a purpose-built work-from-home solution, somewhere for the kids to play Xbox, or a place where you can just get away from it all and devote some time to your hobby, a garden building is a great way to achieve it, at a fraction of the cost of an extension.
The sun’s shining here which definitely helps, because, as we all know, we’re in for at least another three weeks of 'lockdown'. If you’re working from home, I hope you have been able to settle into a bit of a routine now.
Same environment, different focus
For many of us, it’s now ‘back to work’ after the first bank holiday weekend of the year. Except for many, it’s back to work in a very different way to usual.
How is it for you?
I hope all is as well as it can be, and that you’ve settled into some sort of routine in this very strange world we all find ourselves in.
Not the most normal
What’s going on at the moment really is unprecedented, and unsurprisingly, I’ve had plenty of conversations with people over the last few days about working from home – I guess people are realising why so many people end up using a garden building to lock themselves away!
Like most of us, I spend a lot of the winter pining for summer. But now it looks like we’ll be spending the spring doing it too!
