I’m not having a good day today. No reason really, just that the past few months are beginning to catch up with me I think. I work from home most of the time anyway but since the outbreak of Covid-19 I haven’t been to see the clients where I work in their offices, and I haven’t been anywhere else either! I thought I was Ok with it, sitting here at my desk day after day trying to scrape enough work together to pay the bills while my clients struggle to keep going. And it’s been fine, but today, it’s not. It all feels a bit flat. I am still too worried to go out, people are still getting sick, but my brave clients are starting to get things together so they can get themselves and their staff back to work. How I admire them! I wish I were brave enough to put myself in front of people again. But not yet.

So I’m going to carry on with what I’m doing, in the “new normal”,  try to give myself a break from time to time, be ready to talk to people by Zoom or whatever, and then, someday soon we can all meet up over a cup of tea and laugh about the bad old days of lockdown.
