In nine days time, the UK is scheduled to open up. I believe that decisions whether to proceed with some of the last major lifting of social distancing restrictions will be made on Monday. Will the “work at home if you can” mandate be lifted? Will there be a mass return to the office?
I am dreading that to be honest. I have two hour commute to work and a two hour commute home from work. Plus my back is still causing me a lot of pain. I have started physiotherapy, but I am also on the waiting list for surgery. Returning to the office seems overwhelming to me right now.
Fortunately for me, whatever the decision the UK government makes about the scheduled re-opening on 21st June…my own personal return to the office will be postponed. That week I will be traveling with Ben and we will be away for a few weeks. Our journey is going to be a nightmare for me.
Ben told me ages ago that working from home has meant he was not worried I was going to fall for someone at work. I was surprised he even said it. He explained it as not as a lack of trust, but a fear he has because other men notice his beautiful girlfriend and try to befriend her.
Nobody, nobody is going to try it on with me while I am hobbling along with this damage impeding my sexy gait. Still…I like that Ben is so protective over me. There is something nice about being treasured as a prize to him.
