Sara line drawing

Episode five (at least we think it’s episode five – it’s hard to keep track when you’re WFH), of our Lockdown Lowdown series features a lady who has only been with RGU for a few months.  This is probably not what she expected when she first applied, but as you can read below, she’s finding a new, and surprising (to her), interest, although getting a comfy chair has proved difficult.  She’s also provided us with a rather nice drawing of what it’s like working at home…
