One thing that has happened while we have been in lockdown, is that I have become the queen of multitasking. I used to go to school and do my lessons and planning, I would drive home and then collapse on the sofa.
Now, I somehow manage to squeeze the vacuuming in between two lessons, I get a run done when I have a free period, I do the dishes at lunch and I’m even crocheting as I do my lessons!
