January , 2021
Despite leaving behind the ‘annus horribilis’ that was 2020, 2021 also looks set to be a challenging year. The dream that all our freedoms and ‘normal’ ways of living would miraculously return, is unfortunately, for a while at least, set to remain a dream. This painful fact therefore means that our homes will continue to be our sanctuaries where we do pretty much all of our living. Remember the Mars Bar advert from the 1970s and 1980s (some readers might?!) advocating the importance of ‘Work, Rest and Play’? This mantra encapsulates perfectly what our homes need to be geared up to accommodate.
