One minute you’re enjoying the downtime, making the most of the quiet work season to make all kinds of business plans and lists, and dream up new business ideas, new blog posts, new everything.

Wasn’t it John Lennon who said “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans”? Quite literally true, in this case!

Times like this reinforce how important living and working at home is to me. When the chips are down, living has to come before working, every time. When you combine the two, even the difficult times are a little easier because working can take a back seat until you regain some kind of normality.
