Top tip for quarantine?

Stay fit - out running most mornings. Something I have done for a very long time. Love it, couldn’t ever be without a run.Also, time for practicing yoga - I am currently running a free 45 minutes online class every Tuesday night, to keep current and hopefully inspire people at home to join in. I’m enjoying spending time at home and in the garden, catching up on jobs and painting. Doing lots of lovely meals at home for the whole family.

Secret skill?

Running and swimming.

Favourite owned piece?

This is actually easy to answer, it is my gold midnight moon necklace - I wear it every day. My husband bought it for me one Christmas and I haven’t taken it off since.
