22 May Lockdown Leisure
It doesn’t seem possible that we’re in our tenth week of lockdown. We’ve now adapted to our new way of working and whilst we’re looking forward to seeing our colleagues in person, this whole situation has accelerated remote working and we’ve seen that if we work hard at communication we can operate just as well in remote locations. There are some good things to have come out of working from home too, all helped by the glorious weather we’ve been experiencing, with temperatures exceeding those in Marbella.
We’ve got to know our neighbours better, collecting groceries for one another and joining each other in the street for the Thursday night applause and the VE Day celebrations.
Our gardens are looking wonderful, we’ve done our patio plots and planted veg, if anyone wants any Brussel sprout plants Katherine has a few spare! We’ve very much enjoyed visiting the local parks and feeding the cygnets, ducklings and moorhen and coot chicks. For several weeks, we had a pair of Mallard ducks who visited our garden daily until a few days ago; we suspect they are now nesting.
Baking has been a popular pastime with chocolate brownies, banana bread, fruit scones and ‘duffins’ just a few of the things on the menu.
And we’ve returned to good old-fashioned card games and jigsaws with our Star Wars piece de resistance completed in time for May 4th ‘Star Wars Day”
It’s been particularly challenging for colleagues with young children to keep entertained so hats off to Nat who has been building robots and going on bear hunts with his young son Jonathan.
Someone who is very happy with the whole set up though is Max, Caroline’s dog who is loving having her home 24/7, enjoying the company and the extra walks. Maybe now is the time to get that office dog?
