Good Morning everyone, Happy Easter to those who celebrate the festival!
So, as you can see by the photograph I've posted, I have spent part of the last week working outside on the balcony, watching the world go by. I took the photo on Friday afternoon (I'm far too pale to sit in the sun) while taking the opportunity
to sit outside on my newly tidy balcony and get some work done.
This is the end of the third week of working from home, being on lockdown and I can say
I am finding my routine when it comes to setting up to work from home, but it is dangerously easy to work far above and beyond the normal working pattern. I can hear you asking how or why. Simple answer, my "office" is also my bedroom, so I see my work station
every time I go to bed. I can lay on my bed and read but spend half the time thinking I should be working, clearing just one more email from the inbox, sending one more piece of work off.
Even more challenging for me in the coming week is that I am on annual leave. That means a week of not working on my day job, whilst remaining at home due to lockdown and therefore looking around the same rooms, the same walls and without
On the outside, all seems ok with me, but mentally? I’m struggling. I’m already feeling like I’m nervous to go out even to the supermarket
for groceries. I’m worried that by the time lockdown is lifted, I won’t be able to step outdoors. That is why I am glad that I was able to tidy up the balcony and make some space out there to sit and get some air. It isn’t much, but it makes
all the difference to be able to go outside and just breathe.
I don’t have much of an update for you this week. But next week may be eventful –
It is my other half’s birthday on Wednesday. I’m thinking about setting up a mini treasure hunt type game for him to find his present! I’ll let you know how it goes!
Take care, stay home, stay safe x
