A Big Week

Some weeks feel bigger than others and this one has been a big week.

I’m sitting here struggling to know how to write about it. But I want to so I will do my best.

I’m sad for the people who felt despair when the third lockdown was announced here in the UK. I don’t pretend I understand how they must be feeling or coping. I’m feeling pretty stoic myself about the situation but I’m not having to home school young children and work at the same time, or make ends meet because I’ve lost my job. I know that I am fortunate and I’m grateful for that.

I’m shocked by the disorder and violence we’ve witnessed in the US. Again I don’t pretend to have any sort of insight into what made those people take the action they did. It just reminds me that you can’t take anything for granted.

In comparison my working week (from home) has been pretty ordinary, quite small really in comparison to the big week. But important to me. Lots of meetings and calls, solving some problems, trying to help people if I can. My bum is feeling sore from sitting on it too much. I naturally move around more when I’m in the office, up and down the stairs. I’ve made myself a mental note to set an alarm next week, to remind myself to stand up, and not get stuck in my chair for too long.

The weekend is here and it’s welcome. Have a good one.
