Covid-19 seemingly came out of nowhere and has altered all our lives beyond recognition. The emotional, physical, mental and financial impact can be tough, and we would like to share some positive, human reflection from our staff members on what they have learned and will take from this experience into the future.

“I put too much pressure on myself to do things and its ok to be still and do nothing! Appreciate time with family.”

“Humans are extremely resilient yet prone to making mountains out of mole hills. We are definitely scaling a mountain at the moment but doing so with all the determination and resolution of Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing.”

“I have realised how important my friends, relatives, workmates and neighbours are.  I have been in contact with people who would normally only get Christmas and birthday cards or meet with at family get togethers. I have taken time to check they are alright and safe and to have telephone chats and emails with them so we all feel reassured and loved.” 

“I have realised how much we have always over reacted to the petty troubles in life when compared to the seismic changes we have had to make to our lives due to the coronavirus.” 

“Being at home has actually helped my young children’s imaginations and learning how to encourage them has been a great learning curve for me.”

“The finer things in life will just have to wait until we are on the other side of this crisis. Although I do miss scotch eggs and salad cream, both of which ran out some time ago!”

“The crisis has caused me to re-evaluate what is really important to me in my life and I want to apply those values to whatever the future brings. It’s also made me realise that I don’t have enough good socks!”

“ I think that all this has given me a reality check and shown me that I must make more of an effort to stay in touch with people and not take for granted that they will always be there.”

Stay Safe.

The staff at Onions & Davies
