End of Lockdown

It’s been almost two months since home quarantine started. Here in France, everybody’s going to be let out on 11th May. Not me, though. I’m not planning on going out there yet. I think it’s going to be crazeee!!!

What have people been doing during this time?

I suddenly have a lot of free time now, which I usually spend on holidays.
But with the travel constraint brought forth by the current crisis,
what am I going to do with all this free time?

For some like myself, I continued to work from home. It was challenging at times because of the additional work of my daughter’s home schooling, and house cleaning, which was usually handled by a hired cleaner.

We’ve obviously been missing out on a lot this year. Half of the year is almost over, and nothing much happened… except maybe set some small (or big) personal improvement goals.

As for me, I have been practicing yoga almost every day. My goal now is to be able to do a yoga split by the end of the year! For now, I could only do the mermaid pose…

I have also been painting a lot, lot more than usual, which makes me very happy.

Also doing a lot more gardening and cooking.

And even some volunteering on the side, which I have just started doing this week, teaching English classes online to the kids attending the same school as my daughter. It’s been a long time since I last did volunteer work and it felt good to be back at it again.

Also, starting this month, I will be working part-time, which I have requested and was immediately granted by the company that I work with. The hubs has taken a new position at work and will be working a lot more than usual, so I opted to get some free time off work to be able to cover more home and family and personal duties.

I’m thinking of studying again for something. Or trying out a new thing to earn extra income, some online business… something…

Meanwhile, I do some painting commission work from time to time and I still have my regular job as an IT Professional. But I just need to get my hand into something more. I’ll keep you posted if I decided on something. 🙂

Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely weekend!
