Yesterday’s announcement has brought on mixed emotions for many of us – and that’s okay. Whether it’s taking public transport or meeting larger groups, it’s natural to feel nervous about certain things, so take your time, and only do what feels right for you.
I’m supporting the @BritishRedCross call for a kinder and more compassionate way to support refugees in the UK. If, like me, you believe #EveryRefugeeMatters, visit to pledge your support. Cheers.

Last night the government announced that all legal Covid-19 restrictions will end on July 19. But how are you feeling about it?
