Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had wonderful weekends, it certainly helped having that extra day and the glorious weather. I found myself living in easy pop on dresses all weekend, with my trusty Foundation slips underneath of course!

Our weekend was very focused on cooking, spending time together as a family (the 4 of us plus my Mum) and playing games which always gets very competitive in our house.

Six weeks ago, we invested a huge amount of time and energy trying to revive our lawn which was covered in moss, I’d never heard of a scarifier before much less used one! Anyway, I’m delighted to say the hard work was worth it, so much so we decided to dust off an ancient croquet set we were given many years ago and have a game. Sadly, the boys won but it mattered not as it turns out the best bit was sipping Pimm’s (our first of the summer) as we played in the evening sun.

After dinner we decided to play dominoes but I’m talking Jamaican dominoes, which is always very loud, very competitive and usually accompanied with a lethal rum punch, this time the girls won, but we were very gracious, not!

Then today, the start of a new week and for some reason it feels like a different sort of week, are we gradually coming out of lockdown? It certainly feels that way; there seems to be more people out and about; groups of people in the parks; families enjoying a bar-be-que, cyclists everywhere, more cars and just more 'noise'.

Harvey left at a ridiculously early hour this morning to have his first day on the office for 9 weeks so it’s starting to feel like things are moving. And whilst the news that non-essential shops will re-open from the middle of June will give much hope to those businesses that have been closed for over 2 months, I still can’t believe I’ve got another 6 weeks till I can get my hair cut, aaaarrrggghhh!

However, on a more serious note, it has led me to reflect on what I have enjoyed about the last 2 months. What first seemed unimaginable and very worrying plus very stressful from a business perspective, has become ‘the new normal’ as I remember writing about in this email a few a while ago, and has now become such a common phrase.
 Here’s a few things I’ll miss as we start to ease back into the new era post lockdown…
-       Listening to birdsong like I’ve never heard before 
-      The ambient stillness due to very few cars or trains
-       Looking up and seeing clear skies without all the air traffic
-       Making myself have a new exercise routine, exercising in the
        garden again
-       Having all my family at home
-       Spending time with my now 79-year-old Mum, especially at
        the Hope office  with Mum packing all the orders, she’s
        loving it and so am I
-       And finally, connecting with you all, I’ve said many times
        your emails and messages, and seeing those of you that
        could join our Coffee Mornings has really been very special,
        thank you!

I’d love to know what you will miss?

Until next time have a wonderful week everyone, keep safe and enjoy the sun.

P.S. Save the date for our next Virtual Coffee Morning, Thursday 4th June 10.30am, the link will be in the email next week.
