We are having the most peculiar year so far. The global pandemic has of couse caused monumental change for every single family. We cannot just go out and shop for whateve, whenever or wherever we choose. In fact many of us are feelig a little apprehensive about going shopping at all. The need for staying safe has rather scuppered the delightful activity of browsing around home stores being able to look at all the furniture and furnishings. There is little enjoyment in the prescribed 2 metre social distancing for every activity. So the next best thing these days is to look at the wonderful selection of home styling and crafting shows on tv and video. It is possible to get some truly exciting and inspiring ideas. There is indeed a way of taking the current restrictions and making the most of this unexpected bonus time to look around our homes, decide what needs updating and how we want to do it. Some of the daytime leisure shows and be very productive – we discover talents that have either lain unknown or just forgotten about. The online stores are all up and ready to ship any manner of product to us.
