I hope that you are all well and are slowly adjusting to our new way of life. Finding time for yourself in our new routine of life at home can be incredibly hard but is essential for your happiness and mental health.

I’m actually a parent who loves her children being around. Don’t get me wrong it’s not been all plain sailing.
