West Berkshire Coronorvirus Diaries
(See below an excerpt from a person who is working remotely with vulnerable people with learning disabilities)
'' ‘We are closing the office and all working from home now’! I thought, OK, sounds like a good plan (this was before lockdown). I’d started working one or two days a week from home dependent on whether I had meetings in Newbury or elsewhere in Berkshire. I’d surprised myself at how fo-cussed I could be at home and my fear that I would be easily distracted just hadn’t happened; so, I knew I’d be able to do this…… It’d only be for a few weeks - right?? We all know how wrong I was about that!
So, home life and work life changed (like it did for everyone). My partner already worked a lot from home and had his space; I took over the dining room table; then the schools closed and our daughter who is an English teacher needed a space too (office space number 3 was set up); our son works in retail but thankfully we didn’t need to set up an on-line business for him – but we did need to think about interesting and varied ways of him spending his time whilst three of us carried on (although in different ways) with working hard.''
