Quarantine Conference calls gone horribly wrong

For the past two weeks, both my husband and I have been working at home, via Teams, Skype and Zoom. I have loved ‘meeting’ my students’ pets and connecting with my clients in a different environment. Most people are more relaxed in their homes and we have been able to share our feelings about having our work invade our private spaces. My husband and I work in different parts of the apartment but one day last week one of my students spotted him wandering around in the background in his pyjamas.

  1. I’m relieved to read that you’re working from home now. Because when you said on the 28th March that you were still going to work to your usual place I found it a bit irresponsible to make you go out in the current situation. It was only ten days ago and so many things can happen in such a short period of time. I guess you’re much safer working from home. I’ve been working from home for a bit more than three weeks and I somehow got used to it. I can’t see myself going back to work for many other weeks so I make the best of that situation.
    Take care, Janet!
