Unless something drastic changes over the next seven days, my Return to the Office begins in earnest next week. As such, I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of at least drafting as many posts as possible well in advance. Like this one, which I drafted at the beginning of June, and which… Continue reading The Last Week of (This) Lockdown
I first drafted this a few weeks back, at the beginning of the month. I’ve since rewritten. You see, we were preparing to return in earnest to the office. Couple of days this week, a few more next, then full time on-site at the start of July. That isn’t now happening, for various reasons, for… Continue reading Home or Office: Restrict or Relax?
It seems a bit odd to think that I’m only a couple of weeks short of spending a full year working from home. I’ve read lots about how people have been reprioritising their lives over the last year, since the first lockdown gave them room to breathe and think. Finding some way to rebalance a… Continue reading Notes From My Office: February 2021
I’ve been getting better at crafting around the computer. Or do I mean working around the crafting supplies? Perhaps that. I’m trying to remember to tidy up as I go along, or as soon after I’m done with the crafting as possible. But I don’t always. And then I have to work around the paper… Continue reading Notes From My Office: November’s Words

This year, I suppose I’ll get a taste of it, with this new lockdown. In theory, it’s just for a month, until… Continue reading Life in Isolation: The Return of Lockdown
At the end of last month, we thought we’d be returned to the Office by now. Now, of course, that plan has changed, and we’re still at home, and likely to be for a while. We’ve stopped trying to guess when we might return. I decided not to wait until the work-computer has gone before… Continue reading Notes From My Office: October’s Words
Well, what’ll you know? That thing I said the other day, about setting up my craft room in time to turn it back into an office? Yup, that. It started with half a week of training - allowed under furlough rules, apparently - and then became back to work proper, although continuing from home. So… Continue reading Notes From My Office: June’s Words
It’s been a weird month. No doubt the world is about to get a whole lot weirder. Some things I don’t mind so much. The working-from-home aspect, for example. I’m not a people-person at the best of times, and now I’m being encouraged not to socialise or get within about a metre, two’s better, of… Continue reading Notes From My Office: March’s Words
