Do you love or loathe changing the bedsheets? Personally, I am the type of person who loves sinking into freshly washed linen, but I detest physically making the beds.

Christmas is most certainly on its way. There’s definitely a different feel surrounding this year’s festivities. I think the uncertainty of whether we’ll be able to spend time with our families weighs heavy but also the magic of it is quite tempting too.
