Gee, it's been many moons since a post from me :o

I'm in engineering in Brisbane, Australia. We've been pretty fortunate so far. I've been working at home for 21 weeks (I know as I've been reading an Asterix per week :mrgreen:). I averaged over 50 hours a week for the first three months just due to where the project was at. If I'd been in the office, I think doing that would have been harder. It's been handy at home though as I've been able to do somethings around here that I'd normally try and do on the weekends meaning when the hours returned to normal, I've been able to spend more time with the family.

Covid hasn't really effected me as much. Work hasn't shut down for me or my girlfriend.
However it's limited contact with various players in my group, so I haven't really gotten to play much.

Asides from the Work is essentially forcing us to wear face masks, which hurts my ears. But I am looking into conspiracies on how they will and have been using this to further their agenda.

Work is crazy we are all in separate vehicles now with masks at all times in public.I've taken a promotion to permanent lead hand also see acting supervisor quite often.
I work in sewers and we do all the blockages,back ups and sink hole and sewer repairs, holes up to 30 feet deep.The repairs don't care about Covid we are considered front line essential service.
On the home front my son finished his first year of university at home via laptop.Getting ready for second year right now.
My youngest was at home with online schooling to finish grade seven with my wife.She is being homeschooled this year.
Things are busy and hectic at home never enough time to paint minis....lol
Hope everybody stays safe out there.

oh, my Goddess COVID has been one of the most important reasons why my boardgaming hobby has been taken to the next level. I have designed my own game and I have done a lot of extra material for my already existing games such as HeroQuest and Space Crusade. I study bgg and the appropriate facebook groups and get lots of ideas and ready things to copy off of other fanatic boardgamers.

For boardgaming this is a blessing, for humanity a curse.

Anderas wrote:First thing my company did was ban me and everyone in our 700 people department home. Same for my wife and kid. So I had to work while it was difficult to concentrate at all with all the girls in the apartment.
Also, tho only place I have for myself is the painting table. That's where I work currently. Bad for the concentration indeed.


How can you get any work done with such a distractive work space :o

I got made redundant at a place I'd worked for 21 years. It was a blessing bcos I hated the place. So I've had around 7 months of family time and loved it, catching up on all sorts of things,plenty of movies and tv shows. I was due to start my new job 2 days before lockdown in the UK,so I'm off still until its lifted. I could do with Heroquest right now to entertain the family

Right before covid entered the scene, I was getting so fed up with the place I'd worked for 11 years that I quit, assuming it'd be as easy to get a new job as 11 years ago. Then covid came :lol: Brilliant timing. So I've been between jobs since then, with lots of time to get stuff done that I'd been wanting to do for ages, which I've loved.

Sometimes I have a session of miniature painting with my brother who lives in another city, via video - so we can show each other what we're working on - it's great :D If any of you are up for some "covid-socializing" miniature-hobby, via video or sound, just let me know.
