It's been a while

It has been a really long time since I had any time to sit and write a blog post. I have been posting on and off on Instagram and Twitter but sometimes there is so much to do and so much to read, I hardly find time to do anything else.

It has also been a while since I did this ‘working-from-home’ thingamajig. When I was working as a software engineer, that was my thing. I loved doing wfh. Cannot do much of it when you are teaching in a school. Now that we have to do the work from home due to the current covid 19 situation, I find that I am already comfortable doing it without having to worry about what will happen in a week’s time. My experience has taught me the trick of doing it and still maintaining sanity.

I know a couple of my colleagues and friends are already pulling their hair out, and it has been only a couple of days since we moved to working from home. My day one has been marked with me taking the day off which was booked well in advance. So took advantage of it and had a mega cleaning session and ensured that I had the setup ready to get on with my work from tomorrow. Also got my Wii setup for my regular workouts.

The situation otherwise is as we all know not so great. People are still being idiots, being ignorant, being selfish, which is expected, but there is also so much love and care going around which I think we should focus. I sincerely hope that those that don’t take this seriously yet come around soon and do what is necessary not just for themselves but for every one concerned.

I am glad that finally the focus is on the people who have always been the backbone of a well functioning society but have always been ignored; the public servants, the nhs staff, the teachers, the service officials, etc. I hope they stay safe and healthy for the sake of everyone else. Kudos to them all!!!

Calm in the storm

Amidst the choppy environment, there are some who know how to find peace.

WPC: All-time Favorites

I know this week’s WPC says all-time favourites, but I am going to go with something different as this is the final post of WPC. It is sad that it is coming to an end but as my favourite author Agatha Christie says (even though it was said  in a different context 😉 ):

“Sometimes what you think is an end is only a beginning. ”

WPC as a concept has triggered other bloggers to start their own series and I have been part of a few for some time. Even when I moved away from all the other series due to the lack of time I still did look forward to WPC every week and how to map the challenge to my photographs. Sometimes some photos click right away and sometimes I have to think for a while, which was a challenge in itself 🙂 It was also fun to see how others interpret the challenge.

I am sure we all will find some other new beginnings for our weekly fun challenges.
