Day 43, maintaining focus

I think a lot of us are having difficulty continuing to focus on the daily work during this prolonged period of home office. I was reading some headline on Linkedin today about that we should not expect this time to be like before, because the times are not like before. We need to be kind…

day 42 – 35 years on

Today was the day that Kitty tried to sneak up on her favorite position. She started on the chair, first in the office this morning, then lay around on the floor as if catching rays, did a quick leap on to the desk via my vacated chair at an opportune moment, and then perfected the…

home office upgrade

now that I have been working from home so long, and it looks like it will continue, I decided it was time to upgrade my desk. Now of course buying a new desk in a shop is not possible, and ordering online would take forever so I popped onto the local auction site and managed…

Birthday in lockdown

it was my daughters birthday last week, and today it was mine. The current restrictions means no ride on the lake, or lunch at a nice restaurant. However, at some point I hope to be able to do those things. I took the day off, as I really do not like having to work on…

day 29, asleep on the job.

Being artistic

I received from my daughters quite some time ago now, one of these painting by numbers for adults kits. Up to now I have had no time to unroll it or really look at it. Today, Easter Saturday, I decided that with this lockdown, I now have time, so i unrolled the kit. I was…

Good Friday, day 24

It is so strange marking Easter without actually being able to do to Church. I did do the Maundy Thursday service online last night, which was strangely moving, and had the added bonus of providing me with a foot bath, which was about time to be honest. Today the weather has been incredible, it was…

day 21: Kitty in charge

So after 3 weeks of Home office, Kitty seems to think she needs to muscle in on what I am doing. She insisted on sitting on my lap whilst I was calling with a colleague, and then kept a close eye on me afterwards. Maybe she was checking that I was not slacking. Fortunately she…

Back to nature

They say that nature is coming back during this period of lockdown everywhere, and I met this little deer in the woods this morning, in fact he was coming towards me on the path and did not notice me until I said hello. I wish I had had my camera out then. But here he…
