Here we are: Once more confined to the House of Thol headquarters. Although, to be honest, we're not really: shops are open, and although we're advice not to go out too often and only meet a limited amount of people, we're still fairly free to do as we like.
Bars and restaurant however are closed for anything but take-out, and i really really hope those entrepreneurs will be able to survive. Man, they've had it tough this year!
For us it's a lot better than the last lockdown back in March/April: the kids get to go to school (for now...) and with our internet-situation sorted we get to focus on our work in relative peace. We're also used to it by now, i guess. And personally i'm happy we're now officially advised to wear facemasks in public, because i felt weird to wear one before, and i do believe they may offer at least a small contribution to containing the spread of the virus.
What sucks is that we're once again thrown into uncertainty about how long this will last and whether we get to spend the Holidays with our families. I guess there's not much more we can do but keep working, follow the advice and stay healthy.
Good luck everyone, we will get through this, and there will inevitably be a new spring in 2021.
