Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.
It’s such a strange time at the moment, especially as I would usually be home anyway, having worked from home for a couple of years now.
I’m not working from home temporarily or furloughed, I’m trying to carry on as normal on a work front whilst staying at home and having the children here with me.
But, carrying on as normal with work isn’t as straightforward as it may sounds. Our industry is so quiet now – with many PR companies working from home and many brands holding fire on any advertising until the current uncertainty has eased a little.
So, I don’t have much work to be getting on with but I always feel like time is wasted if I don’t do anything at all with it. But, it probably comes as no surprise that I’m finding focusing on anything much at the moment quite hard work.
I’ve made a plan to work on SEO whilst actual paid work is quite, updating old posts, bulking out really short posts and adding internal links to my site. It’s all worthwhile and will help my blog in the long term whilst helping me feel like I’m being productive to some extent.
We’ve had two lovely weeks of Easter holidays and the children are back in ‘school mode’ tomorrow too. We’ll all be around the dining table, working side by side and I’m quite looking forward to getting a little bit of our routine back. How is your work/life balance at the moment?
If you have an ordinary moment this week, come and link up – I’m looking forward to reading the moments that you share and will comment and share them on Twitter through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part.
