So, I’ve decided to start a blog discussing everything that I love and care about so I thought a good place to start would be telling you a little bit about me and my life!
My name is Hannah Sparkes. I am 28 years old; I am a marketing manager of a Barristers Chambers in central London, and my passions are travel, my friends, family & partner, food, fashion, animals, happiness and love!
Right now, we find ourselves in a situation around the world that is incredibly strange, we have never experienced anything like this. We all are facing different hurdles and issues to overcome, learning to adapt to a new way of life.
There are so many aspects of day to day life that have changed, it is a worrying time and it’s been a challenge for us all adjusting to working from home, going out just once a day, not seeing our loved ones, we have been thrown into a new lifestyle and have had to adapt overnight.

Keeley tells us what this first week has been like from a Solicitors prospective:
Not less than 2 weeks ago we were seeing clients in our offices, dropping by to sign their statements and solicitors, barristers, professional clients and lay clients alike attending all Courts in the land for hearings. Fast forward and everyone is (hopefully) at home using the new apps and technology (Zoom, Skype for Business, Lifesize, MS Teams, the list goes on), as well as good old fashioned mobile phones to adapt to the ever changing legal landscape.
The current Covid-19 health crisis has affected us all one way or another, and for so many it now means working remotely for the foreseeable future.
For some this could be a whole new world and understandably a daunting and nerve-wracking experience. Whether this is your first time working from home or you’re a regular I’ve put together a few tips to help keep us happy, healthy and productive. I really want to reiterate that although this is challenging time, we must remain positive and do all that we can to look after ourselves and each other.
