    Love all of these tips! I’m still working (and will be throughout the chaos), but on my days at home I’m cooking lots, listening to relaxing music and trying to enjoy my beautiful little home.

    I love this list Bryony! I love playing cards, my favourite card games are Crib, Chase the Ace and Switch. I’d like to learn how to play Poker! I really want to learn a TikTok dance, but I literally can’t dance so I may give that one a miss! x
