It inspired me to share this photo of my Obi Wan kitten, snug in his basket with his favourite blanket. #lockdownforwhat 😂
I also wanted to share some photos I found on the internet that I thought fit in well with #caturday.
Just writing this post has cheered me up significantly 😁 I have been feeling quite sad since I spoke with my boss yesterday, he announced that he would be implementing a paid leave structure for our company during the lockdown in South Africa, which basically means that as long an employee has annual leave they will be paid. Which is great! BUT once that leave runs out, it will become unpaid leave. This means that if SA extends the lockdown past the 16th April (it is rumoured that this will definitely happen) all of our staff will have finished their annual leave, which means noone will get paid.
Honestly, it's different for me, since I am still working, so the policy doesn't apply to me, but I am so concerned for my colleagues, who are mainly the only income for their families. I literally burst into tears today thinking of all of them.
I comfort myself with the fact that the lockdown has not been extended as of yet, so I really pray that it doesn't get extended. I'm a stresser by nature, stress about everything. It's something I'm working on.
Here's hoping 🙌
