Lockdown Journal : 14 March 2020

Work is something that is really concerning me at the moment.  We don't know yet if shops will be made to close and, if they are, will ours be one of them?

I know I'm lucky in that I can more or less pick and choose my hours.  I know what needs to be done and I'm also lucky in that I can work from home whenever I need to. Which is a good job as its looking like I may end up having to do so.  That said, I'm already worrying about how I'll get all my hours in if the children are at home - the summer holidays are always a bit of a struggle and that is with going into the office once a week.  

Of course, we don't know how this is going to affect any of us. Will there still be work? Will we be closed? Will people still be placing orders through the website? There's only 20 of us, what happens if one of us becomes ill, it could easily sweep through us? If we only sell through the website, will that be enough? 

I need to find a way to control my anxiety. I can't bear stand the feeling of knots in my stomach constantly and the thought that I could be like this for months ahead makes my heart sink.
