So today has been the first full day that M and I have both been working from home for the day. I work from home usually, so I was nice to have some company for a change.
We are lucky enough to have a dedicated office space in our house which is already set up with desks and the essentials, we even have a loo! It’s pretty cosy up there and if either one of us needs a quick siesta, there is even a sofa-bed
As it happened, I spent quite a lot of the day on calls trying to figure out what my job is going to look like for the coming weeks and months and as I deliver quite a lot of training, that just isn’t going to happen in today’s climate.
But one thing I do know is that this isn’t going to be a short lived thing. Most things are cancelled for the next month and what goes on beyond that is almost unprecedented. I have heard today that the Cretan hotel we were supposed to be staying at in 5 weeks is remaining closed until May and seeing as the Greek government is recommending 14 days quarantine for incoming visitors, I think I can safely say that our week relaxing in Crete is well and truly OFF. No matter how much of a first world problem that is, it’s still really dissapointing.
Anyway, the good news is, is that the virus seems to be decreasing in China and it sounds like thousands of people are surviving it rather than are becoming a victim to it. I remain hopeful.
Right then, off to feed Daisy, who frankly couldnt care less!
