Our New Normal with Katie Burbidge

Thu 24 Sep. 2020

This week we hear from Council Member Katie Burbidge on her 'New Normal': What you have missed: During lockdown I have missed visiting my family, they live in Dorset and it has been difficult to miss birthdays with them! We have managed to find ways to celebrate such as Zoom calls but having cake with your family over the internet just isn’t the same! What you are looking forward to: Before lockdown I used to go to the gym most evenings, I have slowly been going back to the gym since they reopened, I am really enjoying going back to classes after work to release the stresses of the day. Along with that I am looking forward to a trip to Dorset to see my family when the time is right. What you have learnt or will be taking out of lockdown: I am taking out of lockdown that having a break from technology in the evening is a good thing, after spending all day sat in front of my laptop not sitting on a tablet or phone in the evening is a welcome break! I certainly will be continuing with this and snuggling up on the sofa with a cuppa and book in the evenings as the nights turn colder!
