Well hello! I’m writing to you from the middle of the COVID crisis in 2020 from my home on a hill in Ashendon.
It’s a strange time as smiles have been replaced by masks which makes it look like people aren’t very friendly – which they are – you just need to talk to them and wave!
Millions of people have lost their jobs during this pandemic or have had their jobs ‘paused’ or Furloughed (it’s just like pressing pause on the TV…and hopefully they can start working again or find another job when we are out of lockdown). I am on one of the really lucky ones who are still working – in fact I am working harder now trying to solve problems than I was before we had the crisis! But that’s what happens at a time like this – people need Scientists and Engineers even more to fix things or find clever ways of getting out of a problem.
