For me, nature and greenery seems to quickly promote a positive feeling! My usual escape would be the Peak District or the local park but with lockdown and a general sense of unease going out, I decided to make my own safe haven. 

Armed with some borrowed tools (thanks Dad) and 3 pallets donated by a friend, I set off to work. A couple of
plasters and bruised legs later ... and with some support... I managed to create a herb garden, planter and a small seating area. Not bad for someone who has never picked up a drill before. 

Lockdown has been a toughy!

Like most, I’ve been unable to reach for my usual coping strategies and have been personally effected by COVID-19. This experience although significantly challenging has encouraged me to try new things, adapt and be mindful!
