As we all adjust to a new way of living, home life has taken on a whole new meaning, so we thought we should share a few things to help ease into the weekend.


Bake off… Julia has been busy in the kitchen creating delicious treats. Just what we need right now, cake, cake and more cake! Click on the photo for the recipe.

Take a tip from our head gardener Mel. This is the time to get planting and bring a bit of the outside in, and it’s good for your wellbeing too.

Our friends from the Estate are bringing their studio space to you. Contact Charlotte for online pilates and Dee for yoga. Stay fit and keep healthy.

For those of you now working from home, a little time spent organising your work area will make all the difference to your productivity and state of mind.

Penny, owner of Colmers Hill Fashion, has set up her own community group to share fashion stories to lift the spirits. Time to put on your glad rags. #DressUpFriday

If you’ve got the love, we’ve got the venue… Let your imagination run wild and plan your dream wedding, even if it’s only in the virtual sense.

Time to get your sketch books out and get creative… The Gallery have set up a fun project for all the family to do. Click on the photo to find out more. You don’t need to be able to draw or paint, and who knows, you might discover a hidden talent.

Time to catch up on some reading… Our current favourite is, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy. All recommendations welcome.

Dance like no one is watching… And not in the ‘Strictly’ sense. Click on the photo and dance along with these guys… We’d love to see the results!

Time to put your house in order… If all else fails, clean!
