Although the UK hasn't gone into 'official lockdown', the nation is taking the coronavirus seriously and everyone is self-isolating to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

However because of this lots of people have stopped commuting to work and started working from the comfort of their own home.

We're taking a break from the cold office building, meetings-that-should-have-been-emails and being squashed on the early morning train. Oh and of course, saying hello to lay ins, home-cooked lunches and listening to whatever radio station we want.
