B E A U T Y | masking

Good afternoon, how are we all today?

I’m sat here patiently waiting for Boris to advise whether Sheffield is one of the cities about to go into further lockdown . I’ve so far sat through a press conference where some medical guys who blew my mind with science. I found myself drifting … mid 6th graph I started to ponder just how many masks I’d be able to do if we are! It’s not much … but it’s a little positive and I guess we have to take them when and where we can.

I do LOVE a pamper in the form of a long bubble bath and a good face mask, especially as the nights turn colder and we are under darkness at 4pm. Masking by a candle lit bath – bliss. Baby it might be cold outside but I’m just dandy thankyou

Jo and I arrived and where greeted by Katie who had organised the event and the owner Galyna [below]

Cawa Coffee is decorated very basically; plain painted walls are adjourned with artwork supplied by local artists, all of which are for sale. Tables run down one side of the room with the food counter and serving area down the other.
