It’s been a very different 7 weeks to what we are used to. We have all been up to different things to keep us occupied. We hopw you are managing to keep happy and positive.

One rule: the pen must never lift. Just for practice, and also as a sort-of existential protest against Instagram’s tidiness and beauty, I’m going to inflict my sketches on the world for a while. I may even get better as we go, but I’m starting super-simple with single-line sketching. I will mix it up at some point – who knows, maybe five lines!
Competition winner Reggie! Cats Protection Frome ran a Facebook competition, asking for pictures of funny things that your cats do which make you laugh. The photo with the most likes and loves won the competition and was the face of the Facebook page and that was Reggie. GO REGGIE!
Usually working on glass and ceramics for her independent business Blossom & Black, lockdown has seen Melanie starting with a new art medium – acrylic paints. Ordering a box of 60 colours at the beginning of lockdown means she’s got a lot to keep her busy!
Since opening the clinic I haven’t exercised anything like I used to. To be honest I doubt I ever will – I was obsessive! Training and running 7 days a week (dreaming voice) Time has been limited but I personally don’t like to use that saying of ‘having no time’, it simply hasn’t been a priority and that’s ok.
Now give me lockdown… I have been out in my little home gym ALOT! Building up slowly but am now back running and HIIT/weight training. I am loving it. The only thing is – how do I keep this up when I’m back to long hours? I may have to make a plan!
Josie has been busy doing some yoga therapy on zoom, writing courses, workshops and has started doing daily mindfulness and breath work for care home staff in Bristol, which is a fabulous thing to be able to offer them. So all in all a busy bee in lock down!
