Chez Richmond is usually looking less than its best by the end of summer, once the littlest Richmonds have blazed a holiday trail through the place, leaving ice-lolly stains, deflated space hoppers and Lego bricks in their wake.

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST… JOHN LEWIS & PARTNERS LAUNCHES 3D SHOPPING Yup, John Lewis & Partners has gone all futuristic on us, with its ‘Visualise Your Space’ 3D-shopping experience. Start by replicating your room via an in-store tablet, with dimensions, windows and flooring, along with a huge library of options to add similar furniture, wall colour and soft furnishings. Then you add your potential new purchases, put on the Virtual Reality goggles and step from the shop floor into your home. It’s the closest you’ll get to ‘try before you buy’, letting you re-arrange the furniture and check that the proportions work.

Sarupa is a personal development coach and mentor (thesoulagentblog.com). ‘During the week, our evening meals are always timed to coincide with EastEnders or a cookery programme, such as MasterChef, on Wednesdays. We spend all day speaking to clients, and it’s just nice to have some downtime when we can both stop talking and focus on something relatively mindless while we sit on the sofa and eat our dinner. Besides, neither of us were allowed to eat in front of the TV when we were growing up, so it does feel a bit rebellious! “ Sitting in front of unchallenging TV allows us to reflect on the day and process everything…
