My days this past week have been filled with valuations and sellers giving us the go ahead to market their property for sale.  I am fairly confident that a lot of this activity is a result of the sense of spring and hope that is filling the air, and which makes everyone contemplate fresh beginnings, but of course, the extension of the stamp duty holiday will not have done any harm!  I also look this week in my VLOG at two recent trends in the world of investment properties, and details of a really inspirational event that I was involved in just yesterday with 3 amazing working mums - surviving and thriving over the past year.
