We are well and truly into lockdown (albeit with perhaps some end now in sight), the sunny weather has arrived and seems to be here for the short term at least.
I can hear birds chirping and rushing around in the garden, the sunbeams through every crack and crevice into the house and the air smells of freshly cut grass through the wide-open windows. A feeling of calm and excitement all at the same time is seeping in through all my senses.
We at Mando have been lucky enough to work throughout the entirety of the pandemic and we have been able to keep in touch through the brilliance of technology. The workforce was lower than usual last week as it would have been half term if everything was “normal” and I wondered what all my work colleagues were doing during their time off with their families. The social activities usually done during half term would be holidays abroad, staycations to the beach or seaside towns, visits to zoos, museums, theme parks, soft play centres, most of these places are now closed or deemed unsafe so it made me think, what are they up to?
