Lockdown Furlough No 2

Here we are again then...

I'm furloughed again...(only work part time in a secure Caravan compound) which is ok, & i'll have a job still in December, but the golf course is shut, which is frankly ridiculous, you can't be much more socially distanced than golf

I've got more decorating to do, started a couple of programmes to watch (started Succession today) & will close the garden down for winter



So...who's on furlough again..?

What sector do you work in..?

Will you have a job to go back to..?

What are you going to spend the next month doing..?

Golf courses were closed for around 7 weeks in lockdown 1. I found that tougher as the weather was really good in April and the 1st half of May that they were closed for.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
indeed...I had loads of stuff to do in the garden on lockdown 1 so it wasn't so bad...I very nearly didn't rejoin at the end of April as it wasn't clear we'd ever get back playing...luckily I took a chance, & within a week or so we were back open

Managed to cram loads of golf in this year despite missing chunks in Mar/April & now Nov
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Luckily the club I'm a member at renews on 1st June so was already back playing so easy decision. I play at a 9 hole course, but May-October played on average 5 times a week. Actually easier this year to get a round after work because the league matches that normally take place were not held due the delayed start, etc.

Managed to play 5 away courses too, 3 with work until HR put a stop due to Covid fears!

i feel for you all, free cash, milking it in, chilling
