I’m actually not minding this lockdown. I’m at home with my family and other than going to work in the evenings and our daily walk for some exercise I’m staying put.
L and I are doing a little bit of school work everyday, he reads me a book, I read him something. We practise his writing, do a little maths and then we’re out in the garden. There’s been lots of football, we’ve planted seeds, we’ve even got a tub of frogspawn.
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the little things I do to cheer myself up.

Keeping your home clean and organised doesn’t have to be as dull as it sounds. When your home is tidy and in order, those day-to-day jobs suddenly feel easier, and life seems to run more smoothly.
So, if having an organised and clean home can make such an impact on our life and mood, then surely we all want to know how to stick to it?
Here are six ways to enjoy a cleaner, more organised home all year round.
