Good news here, Costa del Sol hospital downgraded to level 1 from level 3 over the weekend.
Seems the lockdown here, whilst challenging is working.
Now do I try to catch that 29th April ferry to the UK, where it seems things are on the upward (negative) curve🤔

Given we're a few weeks behind Spain, you might be better staying where you are. ;)

I've been WFH for nearly 8 weeks. I had a mild cough so was sent home... this was 2 weeks before UK shut down.

I'm fed up with it now, though I am getting lots of work done. And saving a ton of money on petrol.

I've only driven 3 times in that time. I'm missing driving more than anything.

What does that say about me? 😉

Yes in UK we are work from home if possible, with all non essential businesses closed. Think there's signs we may be getting near to opening up a little.

I've been Furloughed all of April and May, Other half is WFH.

Only go out once a week for food, lovely when you are out as the roads are so quiet, do miss getting out in the Jag.

Well we are still stuck in lockdown in Spain, but at least now able to go out for a walk within 1km of the villa at restricted hours.
Been really tough, but hopeful that we will be able to get back home on May 16th.👍

After everyone in our house was ill (coughs and temperature) mid-March, then WFH for start of April, but since last Monday I'm back in the office. Hectic at work although commute is down from 45 minutes to 25 minutes so getting an extra 40 minutes at work!

Keep safe everyone.

We dont have Furlongh here. So South Africa is in a pick of trouble. If we can WFH, we're OK.
I've only still driven the Jaguar once per week as normal. Other than that, it's only going out for "essentials".

For those interested in a detailed account of how all this financial crises precipitated, there's a great podcast on the Guardians Audio long read by Adam Tooze.

We need to get back to normal, whatever that normal is.
