What beauty hack I’m loving…
I have been taking my time and using products I was keeping for best and I have realised every day is best! What was I thinking saving products. I have been using scrubs and oils and my skin is literally loving life right now!

What I’m shopping...
We just finished our En-Suite update before the lockdown (the shower was broken for 8 years) so I enjoy a full on Showeroake every single day! It is sunshine yellow and luckily for me Matalan has a gorgeous range of baskets and towels in yellow so I’ve managed to pick up a couple of bits.

What I’m really trying to get into...
If I am honest, at the start of this I was full of ridiculous notions of fitness and weight loss, and emerging like a beautiful graceful swan. I now realise that I just need to take it day by day. Some days I run like Forrest Gump and just keep on running. Other days I do not wear a bra.

What I’m embracing...
I am embracing these times that hopefully we will never go through again in our lifetimes. The family quiz evenings that simply would never have happened with a house full of teenagers. The movie nights we do not just talk of but sit together. The laughter. So much laughter.

What I’m finding hard...
I am finding it hard to deal with my emotions and the guilt. It really is a rollercoaster and just within our home my mood seems to affect the whole spirit of the house so I feel immense pressure.

I was going to say that I am shamefully living in activewear (Matalan most of the time - seriously) but there is no shame in it. It means I am comfortable and also ready for when that mood does actually hit to go on a run or bike ride. I am trying to run 100k in May - wish me luck!
