Before lockdown, I had probably used the mute button on my phone about three times.
These days, it gets a fair old workout while juggling interview people and going on meetings and looking after my son Hudson (who hit the terrible twos six months early) and my five-year-old daughter Gemma who wants to make every waking minute a game or dance contest.
So the backyard became my workplace while slipping in and out of hide and seek games and taking time to glance at Gladys' 11am presser. Then, of course, the doorbell ring for our online shopping order was the highlight of the week as video calling grandparents, relatives and friends became a daily source of comfort.
