2021 Lockdown - Oikos Working Arrangements

I wonder how last night's lockdown news has affected you?

I, personally, was prepared for a few weeks but not a whole term! But I support the rules. I think it's the right thing to do. If a little late.

I'm writing with my new working arrangements. The short version is:

The reason I need to work like this is that my wife is actually the main source of income in our household, and she has to get her 34 hours in for the National Trust.

My work is, by its very nature, more flexible. And so I am homeschooling to protect my wife's core hours.

This will be a tough time for all of us. Everyone was so gracefully and forgiving in the first lockdown, and I hope that we shall all rally round again for the coming weeks and months.

If I am running an ongoing project with you, or involved in current maintenance/support work, I shall be in touch individually. Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions in the meantime.

With thanks for your custom and the work you send my way, and thanks in advance for your patience while I figure this out.
