    So.
    This has absolutely * all got to do with Virus talk - apart from this working from home and those who have been Furloughed.

    Anyways , I am still on Full Pay - working from home.
    To be honest , because work is soo quiet I would rather be Furloughed .

    Working from home ain't as easy as it's made out to be.

    Been working from home. But I like it and am used to it as I worked from home twice a week previously anyway.
    I would always do some exercise in the morning before getting showered. Nothing difficult, just usually a 10 minute workout watching a HIIT / abs video on YouTube. Gets the endorphins going and makes me feel better.
    If work is quiet is there some free online courses you could do to fill some time and get something of value out of it?
    I also listen to podcasts while working too- makes the day pass much quicker!

    I'm on full pay working from home. I actually like it but not sure i could do it all the time, need the interaction with people you get in the office

    I'm working from home on full pay and due to working in public sector finance, we are incredibly busy. At times I think I'd rather be furloughed :giggle1:

    I'm used to working from home as it was 90% of my last job so nothing new but for those who haven't done it before, it must take some adjusting to.

    I'm on full pay and working from home. It really is soul destroying, at least in the office you get a bit of interaction with people. I'm a single guy who lives alone so I'm really struggling with the solitude of it all tbh!

    I work in the office 3 days a week, 2 days at home. 2 others do my job, 1 is pregnant so stays at home and the other does the same pattern as me. Certain things can only be done in the office so the 3 days I'm in are very busy and the other 2 quite quiet.
    I prefer being in the office, I walk 2.6m getting there so some exercise. Working from home also us lonely and the drive to work isn't there.

    I’m furloughed but under serious pressure to “self develop” and “train”.

    I’ve enrolled in a couple of space training programmes just to * them off when I go back!

    “what did you do?”

    “well I’m taking some space training courses, so if that’s not self development I really don’t know what is?”

    I'm sitting at home doing nothing so decided to try and follow my dream of being a * body double. A very niche market, mostly for the film industry.
    So ive took plenty of pictures of my love muscle and posted hundreds on social media in an attempt to get recognized by some big Hollywood talent scout.
    So just waiting for that chap at the door and be whisked away to fame and fortune.
