When lockdown arrived, so did reports of a run on paint shops and DIY stores. All that time at home, all those things to do - we'd make the best of this crisis by turning into our best selves and turning out our best homes.

We fantasised about the new recipes we'd try, the new languages we'd learn. All this enforced staying home wouldn't lead to us becoming unfit either.

No, we'd stream Joe Wicks training sessions in the mornings with the kids and lay out the yoga mat for a bit of chilled-out head space in the evening.
