I’m frustrated. I’m exhausted. I’m done! Anyone else? It can’t be just me?? I still often wonder how we have got to this place? How are we still here? Why can’t we make this all stop? It feels like a bad dream that we just can’t wake up from. My sensible side, however, tells meContinue reading “When does this all end?”
Yes I did! I started a brand new job with a brand new company just over six months ago (in the midst of this pandemic and lockdowns and restrictions). I interviewed virtually.

The comfort of a real hug is a distant memory. But the thought still counts, so send along your hugs today…
It’s hard to believe we are in October. In some ways this year seems to have dragged, and yet I wonder where the time has gone? I spoke to a fellow parent at the school drop off on Monday and we both agreed that each week just starts with a bit of a groan rightContinue reading “Covid Work Life Boundaries”
