The mum-of-two says her trick works wonders for saving time in the morning.

Lisa Lamond stars in an Australian renovation show, House Rules, on which she revealed her trick to save time in the morning.

The pre-school routine for her and many other parents can often be difficult with young children.

Lisa added: “On days I’m working in particular, I don’t have a spare hour while they pull up one sock.

“So the best piece of advice I’ve been given is to dress your kids the night before in the clothes you want them to go out in.”

In the morning, she simply wakes her kids up, changes their nappy and puts on the shoes. She said: “It works wonders for me and where I’m at in life at the moment.”

Lisa also recommends taking advantage of online supermarket delivery to save the hassle of shopping with two young children and to leave the weekend for quality family time.

Lisa also said one her daughters has become attached and struggled to go to nursery. She said by printing out words with pictures of both the morning and evening routine it can help the little one preempt what’s coming up when she’s starting to feel anxious.

She urged parents to not compare themselves with other mums and dads, admitting at one stage she wouldn’t go out because she thought she couldn’t control her daughters and felt embarrassed.

She said: “We all have our own pace and ways of coping, but I got over it and learned how to diffuse the situation.”

Morrisons use of the Union Jack flag on British products has kicked off a debate online.

It was sparked when a shopper posted a picture of the Union Jack branding on the supermarket’s eggs and butter.

Pictures of the products were posted to Twitter, with the customer writing: “Just back from a trip to Morrisons. Is it just me, or have their butter and eggs always been this… patriotic?”

The post sparked a debate and divided opinion in the comments, with some saying they will boycott the items while others argued it was just marking them as being British products.

Someone replied to the tweet to say: “Very upset by porridge I saw in Morrisons. This flagging everything is very unpleasant and quite intimidating.”

A second added: “Retaliate. I’m no longer buying anything packaged as such. Hurt them through their bank accounts.”

While another replied: “Won’t be buying eggs from Morrisons.”

Some people were confused as to why people were so offended by the Union flag being on British products.

One person said: “I can’t believe you all get triggered over the fact it’s showing we have British products in our stores. You should be proud that it’s cut down on air miles and transport costs and in turn is helpful for the environment. No, you’d rather moan about the national flag.”

A second asked: “They also have the French flag on Brie and Camembert cheeses and the Italian flag on a number of meats. Should we remove them as well? Or is it just because it is the British flag?”

Today, Monday April 12th, sees stage two of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown come into effect.

As part of this second stage, pubs, bars and restaurants can reopen for outdoor drinking and dining, while places like gyms, salons and hairdressers can also welcome people back.

Non-essential retail can also throw open its doors once again, meaning shops in places like the city centre, Arndale and Trafford Centre can reopen from today.

Huge queues have been forming as people are keen to return to shops after lockdown, with large gatherings of people spotted at the Arndale.

Photos and videos have been posted to social media showing people trying to get in the shopping centre from Market Street, with the Arndale opening at 8am today.

Sean Hansford posted a video to Twitter showing a large group being dispersed from the entrance to the Arndale, with very little social distancing happening.

A security guard asks them to move away and to social distance, but the group initially just congregates nearby.

Later videos show a more orderly queue going down Market Street after Covid marshals managed to organise shoppers, with police also spotted assisting with the queues.

Large queues were also spotted at Primark over at the Trafford Centre, as the popular budget retailer reopened its doors.

Will you be heading out shopping today, or are you waiting until things calm down a bit?
