Another month of lockdown has passed! It has been really encouraging to see things starting to open up again and I’m hopeful that some of my work will be able to restart in the not too distant future. Some of my usual work projects that take place in schools and hospitals are still suspended. There are restrictions around weddings, though a few are starting to go ahead with limited numbers. I’m following the Musician’s Union guidance around private teaching and keeping all lessons online for the time being. Overall there are promising signs that things will start up again, it’s just a case of being patient now!
I guess in every situation there’s always a silver lining, and for me it’s having a bit more free time. I usually have a very hectic schedule of projects, teaching and events so it’s quite a novelty to have free weekends. I’ve been enjoying spending time with friends and family, and we had a lovely couple of nights away recently too. My house plants are the healthiest they’ve ever been as I’ve had much more time to tend to them, and I’ve added a few new ones to my collection too. I can’t wait to get back to work properly again, but in the meantime I’m going to try to make the most of this free time while I can!
