So, how is lockdown going for you? I guess I should add a little more to that as some countries are enforcing it, some are suggesting it, and others, well, I’m not sure ignoring is wise. I guess we will see how those strategies all play out in the coming months!
For me, and listening to the Ever Lovely Mrs J’s science view on things, the populist idea of “Oh, it’ll all blow over soon. Now back to work!” seems at best naïve, in reality… What? Dumb? Willfully ignorant? Uninformed? I am short on polite words to describe certain ‘leaders’ who behave in such a way. I cannot help but feel when a consensus of medical experts challenge you on it, you really should listen. Mind you, it’s not like some folk aren’t still flying about or traveling you their holiday homes to spread the infection.
This week felt as busy as the last one, but in my book, better to be busy than bored. 🙂 It’s been a bit fraught with so much remote work, but I think I am getting used to working like this and I’m not missing the commute in. It’s been a struggle to balance comfort breaks with back to back meetings. Perhaps I need to take a leaf out of Sue’s advice on home working, and start padding in breaks to stretch, make s drink, and take my foot off the gas. I don’t think the stuff I do is that life and death.
Both kids are doing what they can to stay on top of their school work, although Wee Man’s A level lessons seem to run longer than when he was in the class. I’m concerned that his teachers have underestinsted the time required to do the work. I suppose we’ll keep an eye on things.
Thursday would have been a night out with the group, but with things as they are, that wasn’t going to happen. So it goes and I hope the precautions we’re doing now will pay off in due course. While technology can solve some issues, it’s yet to provide a magic wardrobe for me to disappear into. Maybe that’s how Doctor Who got out of hand 🙂
So, I guess we’ll have to see how things go. I’m not yet hearing the ticking of the fabulous clock, so I hope that continues. It’s not like I’m going to have the chance in the next few weeks. Perhaps I will have to make do with a pretty shirt and begging well groomed.
Taking of which, I’ve seen my image on conference calls a few too many times this week. Luckily, I’m doing okay mentally, so that’s not weirding me out. 🙂 I could do with not seeing myself in bloke mode and the lighting isn’t helping my eyebrows. Oh the vanity! 🙂
Good luck to you all next week and stay safe. I think the Jones Crew will do what they usually do at the weekend: lie in, bake, play computer games, and stay in.
Lockdown? We so got this 🙂
