This is the new mantra that you hear all the time. I think it has taken over from ‘take care’ although some people say both. I am not moaning about people saying it, it’s the opposite. It is showing what a great nation and great world we are. We are joing together and staying safe. Not just for the safety of ourselves but of others. Staying safe usually involves you staying at home. I am lucky to live in a lovely village and this allows me to stay safe but also go out for my daily exercise. I have found new paths to walk around and last week was shown a wood were one of my favourite flowers grow in abundance, bluebells. I didn’t see any last year and it was great to see them this year dispite being in lockdown. Staying safe also means staying at home so we are spending a lot of the time inside nowadays. I have written already about WFH and I am getting used to it. I am lucky at the moment as work takes up a lot of the day so I don’t struggle too much. My living room is also my ‘office’ now but I try to detach home life from work life. When I turn the computer off in the afternoon the ‘office’ becomes my living room again. It is great to see that everyone seems to really understand the importantance of the message to stay safe. It doesn’t mean it is easy to do. I guess I am getting used to spending a lot of time away from work and away from people I know. This is the fourth year in a row where I haven’t normal worklife. I realise that sometimes I don’t really leave the house to do anything. All the normal routines that I have set up are on hold. Like I said this is not really hard for me but I can imagine for others on their own it must be harder. We are lucky to have great things that we can use to webchat and I am using them all. After the next couple of weeks things may get a bit harder but I will worry about and tupe about it then. Remember….STAY SAFE!
