To the NHS – Thank you!

I think we can all agree that the NHS are doing an amazing job caring for the nation at this difficult time. Hospital staff including doctors, nurses, and surgeons (to name a few) are part of a system that provides vital healthcare to many, and we are even more grateful for them during this pandemic.

For all the hours spent working, for the time spent away from family, for all your selfless acts …

THANK YOU!

FYI – Quarantine Resources!

 

Quarantine has been in effect in the UK for a few weeks now, and we are all adjusting to our new routines. The internet and social media are buzzing with updates and new information on the situation, by the hour (and sometimes the minute!). However, one must pause and question whether all the information received is accurate or useful.

In light of that, we have compiled links to some very helpful resources that you may find of use during this time.

Like and share these links with your colleagues, family, and friends!

Quarantined Creativity!

 

 

Working from home with children can be challenging-  just ask Professor Robert Kelly who couldn’t get a moment’s peace while being interviewed by BBC News in 2017.

Children (and adults!) can be unpredictable at the best of times, and the lockdown due to COVID-19 has seen many become restless and bored with their new home-schooling routines.

Fear not! One Great George Street now has its own coloring book – this should keep boredom at bay for a while!
