    Hope your daughter is ok. Better to keep her off anyway so she can get better

    So are the schools still in? Do they have remote learning set up? Our public system is a mess. They made people choose between remote or in class. The school my son is at streams every class online so if you're sick you still can check out the remote class

    Yeah they were off from March, back in from September, but I wouldn't be surprised if they close again.
    My girls (12 & 13) are in a so-called digital school, so it's all iPad based and this worked brilliantly during the first lockdown. The classes aren't streamed as such, but they communicate and get all their work done through that medium, so she can just do her work while she's off.
    WFH suits me, working on two tenders at the moment, which is actually easier to do at home on my own.

    My children are all grown up now, so I don't have to worry about schools closing.

    I worked from home for about 6 weeks, then we all got called back in. My bosses are younger than me, but struggle with modern ideas. They have suspicious minds, so couldn't handle the concept of staff working where they couldn't see them.

    We have a few of those dinosaurs in our office as well and their staff are all in fulltime. Other departments are more flexible. I work directly for the MD and he's dead easy. Which makes it a little unfair for some people, as they see others working from home and they're not allowed.

    Well it's official here, we're going back into lockdown from Thursday, for six weeks. Stay within 5km from your house. Non essential shops, hairdressers etc all shut. Few exceptions this time though, schools, creches and construction sites may remain open.

    Oh wow. Well if lockdown is what it takes to get over this do it! It worked for us the first-time.

    We were told trick or treating for Halloween is cancelled. I wasn't going to take my son anyway.

    As for work my husband's department head has been still going to the office. Apparently he sent a pic of someone working while their store was bombed out in the war and was like they kept going. Some people don't know what empathy is. Hubs is staying home until there's a vaccine. Luckily he has office space in the basement

    I am about 200km to the south of you, and I have heard that we are going to be facing some increased restrictions here as well. Doesn't bother me too much since I have been working from home since this started. Safest thing to do if you can do it.

    I don't mind too much myself either. Just the lack of social life is hard and I'm sick of zoom calls.
    Pubs here have been closed since March, restaurants have reopend for a while, but they're back closing now again. I literally have not been in a pub or restaurant since Feb. Ah well, suppose it's good for the diet. Feel bad for the pub owners and staff though.

    I've been working at home since March, and was told we won't be back in the office until sometime after the first of the year. My husband is in manufacturing so working from home not an option for him, but his place does provide masks, does daily temp checks etc. Kids are doing Hybrid as of now...so in class a couple days a week and at home a couple days a week. I miss people and tired of Zoom calls and talking into a computer screen, but health is more important.

    I've been working from home since March and realistically don't expect to go back in regularly until next spring. I go in once a week just for a sense of normalcy and some interaction. I started going back to my personal group training last month. I'm at risk due to auto-immune but we're a small group and the state I'm in is the lowest in the nation for cases so I feel realitively comfortable with it but I'm still cautious.

    I find lately I've been getting a bit bored. Usually at this time of year I'd be skating two or three mornings a week and curling in a couple if leagues and practicing at least one afternoon. I've just started missing the social interaction I get from that and just the activity. I take at least a 5k walk most days partly to kill some time. There's only so much I can clean my house 😂🤣

    But hey....were healthy so that's all that matters really

    Returned to the site... Jumping in and saying hi. I am at the highest weight Ive ever been in my life. Allowed drastic and huge life changes to give me the excuse to turn to food for comfort. Slowly getting back on track. Learning portion control. Hope to meet other supportive people. Feel free to send me a friend's request. *wave*

    Hi everyone! New here, 45, from Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Recently had a scare with my heart and am making some big lifestyle changes. We just lost our dog, who was my biggest reason to exercise, but I’m walking in our neighborhood anyway.

    Hi and welcome, I'm sorry to hear about your dog : ( When my dog passed away at the age of 12, I was devastated.

    Welcome (back) all, I only rejoined myself about 2 months ago and you know what, it's good to be back. I gained loads in the first lockdown but that's not going to happen this second time around.

    Eeeek snow! It's chilly enough here, but thankfully no snow. I like the look of it, but this country just can't cope with it and it will just grind to a halt.

    I found a new exercise I really like, calisthenics. It's all bodyweight based. It looks dead easy but it's so deceptive. Nice alternative now that the gym is off limits again.
    I also downloaded the Calm app, to try to meditate/relax a bit more. A little airy fairy perhaps, but my blood pressure is worrying me (I'm measuring twice a day and it's not good at all) so I'm going to give this a good go.
