I think it's safe to say that, at some point during lock down, we have all found ourselves wanting to get all dressed up and go out. As lock down begins to ease,let's not forget the simple happiness that being able to stay in brings, whether that means staying in your pyjamas until whatever hour of the day ,a date night, a girls night or a stay at home with the pets night. Why not have a go at some of these stay at home ideas we have put together alongside the best small and local businesses.
A Virtual Pub Quiz
When it comes to quizzes,whether they take place virtually or face to face, to me it feels as though they're never quite complete without an argument over who won, and being washed down with a nice, cold beer. We can't provide the argument, but we can recommend Beerfly's delivery packages of award winning ales, beers and ciders.
Have a Baking Banquet!
Feel like channelling your inner Mary Berry? You could always try out the bottled baking co's glass bottles filled with all the ingredients you need for a variety of delicious baked goods. If you would rather spread the love, why not look at delivering them to one of your local care homes, or having a bake sale (complying with social distancing rules of course) for a local charity
