I knew once I’d found those old photos of my family the rest of the day was lost...

How many of you have started home renovation or decoration projects plans during lockdown? Schemes which seemed like a great idea at the time, but now make you think that it would be easier to come out the front door, lock it behind you and just find somewhere else to live?

Unfortunately I would have to admit to all of the above. I must have been either particularly pliable the day that my three children came to me, asking if they could swap bedrooms because, without putting much thought into what it entailed, I said yes.

I vaguely remember thinking that at least it would mean a good clear out of the teenagers’ rooms, where the light of day is almost as unwelcome a visitor as I am, and that it was a project that would keep them occupied during lockdown.
