This week, with the nice weather and relaxation of restrictions I have been able to get out a little more… and judging by the increased traffic noise so have most people. This has been a welcome relief from the last 13 weeks… yes 13 weeks… it is hard to believe really. Observations from this week.
- I have been continuing in my quest to recreate the Pret-a-manger menu. This week, pain au chocolat and croissants. Needless to say, the first attempt was well… not great… unless you like ‘well fired’ baked products…. also known as burnt. Still, this is how you learn I suppose!
- Listening to commercial radio, stores are starting to advertise to get people to return.. “the size of our store allows for greater social distancing”.. it is all deadpan and serious and really sounds like a dystopian sci-fi movie. The times we are living in are quite something
- At work this week there has been a marked decline in the prevalence of on-video calling? Video calling and being on screen is tiring. I wonder if we are subconsciously starting to balance when we are on vs not to manage this… (or we just like the beards and working in sweatpants!)
Another week ahead… have a good one everyone… @chris_w_tweet
