As the Covid-19 crisis has unfolded my family, like many others, have been trying to keep our spirits up. We’ve been incredibly grateful for the time of year; a late summer has certainly helped us, and I’m sure Spring has been welcome in the Northern Hemisphere with its promise of lovely weather and of nature renewing.
Operating a small business is always a challenge. After this situation – as the owner-operators of 2 small businesses – Darryl and I now believe that if we can make it through Covid-19 we can make it through anything!!
While trying to run 2 businesses and a schoolroom from our home has had its moments, one thing we have loved is the opportunity to get to know the routine of each other’s days. Darryl and I have been on-hand to support each other, and we’ve both been delighted to gain a close insight into the school-day of Abigail, our 7-year-old. We’ve also enjoyed having time to do art and craft activities together, games, jigsaw puzzles, and having wonderful family time walking with our dog, Bobbie.
