You may have noticed that for once the weather has actually been quite nice recently!

In spite of the summery weather, the vast majority of Brits did the right thing this weekend, resisted the urge to get outdoors, and continued to observe the lockdown rules.  

But if you’re fortunate enough to both be able to work from home at the moment, and have access to outside space, there’s nothing stopping you from taking full advantage of the sunshine and setting up your very own outdoor office in your back garden!
