Two weeks ago today, I was at work (in the sense of being there physically) for the last time. It didn’t come as a surprise when I had communication a couple of days later that, until further notice, everything was closing down.
I’m used to working from home anyway, so the transaction was smooth. From this month though, I’ve been placed on the government furlough scheme, so definitely moved to the next level, so to speak.
From what I can see, many people are hating the situation and can’t wait to get back to work. I must admit, I’m the opposite, and enjoying making the most of the opportunity to slow down for a time away from the normal routine.
With the government allowing daily exercise, I’m certainly grasping that one. Keeping it local, the latest walk was another return visit to Turls Hill. When you consider it’s in the Black County – albeit on the peripheral – it certainly has a rural feel to it, as you can see from the video below.
In order of appearance, I saw: wood pigeon, starling, magpie, blackbird, blue tit, green woodpecker, robin, long-tailed tit, chaffinch, chiffchaff, common buzzard, stock dove, goldfinch, wren and great tit.
