It has been a weird few weeks.
I know we are all feeling it right now. I’ve been trying to process thoughts for days to see if things can seem a bit clearer and I just keep coming back full circle.
I made the decision to be self-employed and I have been working from home now for a good few years and I know right now there are a lot of ‘X ways to work at home’ articles and I’m not going to add to that noise at all because it’s completely different. I am really feeling that difference. I enjoy structure and at the moment I’m probably doing very little of what I normally would.
My kids are now at home after their school closed, my eldest works well on her own and she seems to be coping well. It’s the first week and I realise this won’t continue but it’s in contrast to my youngest. My boy has struggled being away from his friends, he is shy and whilst we have supported and encouraged video calls he’s found it all very emotional. Which has sent me over a few times too.
I’m also as hormonal as f*** right now.
I am incredibly lucky to still have work to be focusing on, I know others are not that lucky. That being said, it is less than it was. I can get it all done in a few hours a day and can spend the rest of the time with my family. I have elderly relatives that I am helping with food supplies so that’s kept my mind focused too.
