So today was the boy's last day at school for the foreseeable future. Things have been moving at lightening speed for the past three weeks as the coronavirus has spread with terrifyingly rapidity, every day bringing the new realities closer and restrictions tighter.
As of Monday we - the entire country, together with great swathes of Europe and the world - will be home schooling as well as home working. Who knows how that will work!
The aim is to be a bit more relaxed about all the things. To stay home as much as possible; socialise on zoom and FaceTime while the bandwidth holds out; walk the dog, run and Take The Air until more hardline restrictions set in and then... I dunno? Laps of the garden?
So incredibly thankful we have a garden - even if it is, as my neighbour kindly observed (no, really - I think it was intended as a compliment...), 'wild'!
Bon chance, mon amis.
(wash your hands, don't touch your face, keep your distance, cough/sneeze into your elbow or a tissue... you know the drill)
