Where is your new office?

The study

What are your tips for staying motivated and on top of work during lockdown?

I have organised my workspace so that I have everything to hand. It feels like I am at the office, except that I have to make my own coffee!

What has been the biggest challenge since working from home?

Interruptions to service due to volume of traffic over the internet. I have been lucky and not had as many crashes as some but it is frustrating.

Have any positives come out of working in lockdown?

I don’t miss the commute across Ipswich at all. Much nicer to wind down in my garden than in a hot car for sure.

What do you miss most about the office/colleagues?

The interaction and brain storming. It does not happen organically over zoom.

How are you utilising your permitted daily exercise?

Walking my dogs is a daily routine that could not be interrupted, Covid or not!
