21 DAYS AT HOME
Our homes are our place of safety, our haven, even more so at this strange and scary time. But with 21 days of lockdown there will undoubtably be days where home feels like too much. To get us through this period feeling calm, safe and sane, plan something special for each day.
Lockdown has begun, you can now slow down. Start the day with an unhurried breakfast
Try a new way to enjoy your coffee. Swap your Americano for a flat white, switch from espresso to macchiato. See how to make a flat white here.
Enjoy a good old-fashioned Sunday lunch with slow roast potatoes and all the veg.
Go back to work from home in your favourite fluffy gown, they’ll never know.
Make some time to video call with a family member or friend and enjoy a cup of tea together.
There may not be too many jokes today but you can share something light and inspiring to lift the mood.
Make up the bed with your favourite bed linen. Go online for inspiration on how to create the cosiest bed.
One week in. Keep your spirits up and create your post-lockdown wish list.
Now you have the time, plan how you would renovate or redecorate a particular room. Start a Pinterest board.
Browse your recipe books, or find new recipes shared online and plan beautiful meals for the week ahead. Our Home Chefs Club Community is a great place to start.
Beat the blues and open up that fragrance diffuser or luxury room spray you have been saving.
Get up, stretch, do some yoga, get back under the covers again. It’s ok.
Get creative and try out a new smoothie or juice recipe. Ginger, carrot and pineapple is a great kickstarter.
Arrange a mini home spa treatment for yourself. Just because you’re not going out doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel great.
Bake your own hot cross buns. You finally have the time and it’s fun to get the kids involved.
Spend the day outside in the garden or on the balcony, make a picnic style lunch.
Whether you have kids or not, create your own Easter egg hunt at home. Then spend the rest of the day eating them on your favourite couch.
Today, just be. Be with your family. Be with yourself. Read, eat, do a puzzle together, relax.
Make a list of the local designers, artisans, manufacturers and businesses you would like to support. See our list here.
Create an occasion and serve a meal with your finest crockery, silverware and glassware, just because.
