It’s been a couple of weeks since I am working in my new home office and I must admit – it has brought so much happiness and inspiration!
The best part is that I can now “leave work”, lock up my office and “go home”. It may be a few footsteps apart but work is now work and home is now home.
Thanks to the pandemic, up until recently I was working from our living room and Kurt was working from the kitchen. It was just getting too overwhelming and that’s when we decided to convert our granny flat into our office space.
Twenty twenty has been an absolute roller coaster, right? Its been nearly 2 months of Lockdown in South Africa and its unbelievable to think we’ve been confined to our homes for such a long stretch of time and we’re still surviving!
Working from home with the kids has been an experience. Alyssa is officially in week 8 of term 2 and she is still on track with the curriculum thanks to her schools support. Aidan has daily classes with his teachers too which I’m really grateful for.
Kurt and I are both working from home and has been interesting juggling it all.
Some days are complete chaos, but for the most part we are doing it! I keep reminding myself that this is not “normal” and of course things will not be easy. We are in crisis mode, so we just have to do what we can do to the best of our abilities – and that applies to the kids too.
