One Thing I Have Learnt In Lockdown

To be honest, saying just one thing is not true. I've actually learnt a lot of things in lockdown.

  • I've learnt about mixing and cooking cakes and cookies.
  • I've learnt how to code a new language or two.
  • I've learnt about being onboarded virtually and working from home.
  • I've learnt how to do exercise during lockdown.

I could continue with the list to be honest, there are many things I have done. There is also a list of things I never managed to do, or learn. A list of things I would like to have accomplished.

That being said, I'm not going to go negative for this shorter post - well, try not to...

As I was saying, one thing I learnt

So, as I was saying. I learnt 1 thing. To be honest, it was quite an obvious one - and to say I learnt it is wrong - it was more of a realisation coming back to hit me again.

As little Mr is now getting older, he turned 8 in October. I'm the one who does his personal care - in regards to changing etc - at home. He still requires support in all aspect. As he is getting older, I need more time here to help support that.

Working from home has made me realise just how much more there will be a need for this. When you work in an office, you don't see or realise so much. Working from home (and the time I was out of work) really gave me the insight into just what needs to be done.

Now, for the moment, at least until after Christmas and the New Years, I will be working from home. In the New Year though, we may or start to get back to the normal - everyday working routine.

When this happens, I am not sure just how much my current employer (I would say new having been there just 3 months, but up until mid last year I had worked for them for 6 years - so not so new) would allow for working from home.

I really need a role where I am working from home every day.

This has me wondering what other people in the same situation do? That's really one of the reasons for this - more personal natter of a post. I'm really looking for ideas one what to do, what everyone else does.

Making sure that the kids needs are catered and care for is first. Doing that is partly about earning money for food, housing and so on. Though with the needs of little Mr (soon to be not so little Mr the way he is growing) ever increasing - the proprieties change.

What I need to do is win the lottery. Next possible, if I don't win the lottery, is to be in a role OR start something up, where I can earn but also be at home.

All suggestions and thoughts, please leave below.
