Returning to normality…

Posted on

Just a super quick post before I start getting ready for work but things in the UK are slowly going back to normal. On May 17th we can see our friends indoors (up to two households) and be able to eat in a restaurant.

But there are rumours that we are going to return back to the office at some point, too, and I’m not too sure how I feel about that…

I really like working from home so I’m hoping that we can do some days at home, and some days in the office.

When I’m at home I feel more relaxed because I can wake up, drink some tea, watch some YouTube videos or read some blogs before I get ready for work.

But if we have to go into the office I’m going to have to start getting up early again and start commuting so I won’t have time to relax (and commuting is going to be expensive (╯︵╰,)). It’ll also be hard for me to take breaks when things get super stressful because we’re all just stuck in an office. The only good thing is that I am able to see my friends at work again.

I just hope I can continue to focus on my mental health if we do go back into the office…

Anyway, sorry that there aren’t any photos or anything on this post. I just wanted to get a few things off my chest.

See you in my next post xx

see you decome

    Gosh, I have bittersweet feelings about coming back to work… I honestly wanna get out more, and get to see my friends and coworker more often, as so much time has passed and I miss them! but at the same time, I don’t wanna commute anymore >.< and getting ready in the morning… ugh. I wish you the best for your return to the "normality" ;_; *hugs*

      Thank you my love <3333 Yeah the commuting part is ... Well, it takes so much time out of the day! At the moment it isn't a hassle if I need to start work early or stay late, but if I need to do that in the office it's just... Not ideal.

      I hope for the best for you, too! <33333

    Oof. I feel you! Hopefully it will be optional since I did see a few articles that say a lot of employers saw what a difference working from home makes! Not every job needs to be inhouse ya know? Hopefully it works out for youuuuu♥

    I’m glad you guys have things under control enough to consider opening again. We keep flip flopping between closing things down and opening up which is super stressful and annoying.

    I’m not looking forward to having to commute again either when we open back up, but I’m thankful my office is really invested in our wellbeing so there are lots of talks right now about having more flexible work schedules and what that might look like.

    Take care and take things slow! xoxo

      Awh no! I can only imagine how stressful that is. In the UK we have a “road map” so on May 17th we can go to restaurants again, and I think on the 21st June is when things will go back to normal…

      Thanks bby, sending you love too <333

    Awwwwww ;_ ;; It’s such a weird feeling to think about going to the office… we’re being told that here we might go back around June too and I moved back home around an hour away from work T_T I don’t wanna do that commute anymore lol!!! Those slow morning routines make us feel sooo much happier!! like can I still giggle over reading my friends blogs while at work?? Maybe not LOLOLLLL or randomly watching one of your videos at lunchtime hahaha! I hope we’ll be able to find new routines that still keep us happy and healthy ; _; <3 though i really miss meeting up with friends and dressing up together…maybe that's the joyful part to hold on to!! hahaha TT hugssssss!

      Oh no that’s so frustrating! Hopefully they can do flexible working as I know a lot of businesses are going to do that from now on…
      And yes so so true! I love the fact I an watch youtube videos at lunch and read blogs before work <333333 If the inevitable does happen, it's going to take me a while to adjust to the new routine so I might have to go on hiatus or something which I really don't want to ;_; <333

    Ganbatte ne Lizzie! I haven’t ses this post but I understand Why I didn’t see you often on himekaji discord recently.
    In France we don’t back office for the moment but I fear a little bit about it. Work at home is quite a freedom event if we have to work. But going at office is nice because you can see peuple and have a rhythm of Life despite at home I feel I lose the sense me time.
    Hope to read you soon on discord 😊

      Ah yeah I’m finding it really hard to have the motivation to post nowadays ;_; Hopefully I can post on the discord channel soon because I really miss you gals!

      Yes I totally agree with you! I’d love to see my friends at work again but I do find it really efficient to work from home. We’ll see how it goes!
