|The April public holidays are upon us and it is my hope that UNE staff, students and alumni will enjoy the break and their leave, celebrate as appropriate and remain safe and well within their individual bubbles, respecting full isolation and physical distancing directions. All the data confirms that containment is working and we must stay the course.
My family have sent me scented soap and a bottle of Dettol in lieu of an Easter egg – how kind! So I have treated myself to a bottle of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, some cheese from Bruny Island and lined up the now essential list of ‘home entertainment’ tasks for the long weekend: books (The Mirror and the Light), music and exercise (the Orielles Space Samba, disco volador theme), jigsaw puzzles (The Kiss – Gustav Klimt) and movies to watch (Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, and Guy Richie’s The Gentlemen). I also plan to micro-binge to finish season three of Ozark.

• Remember to check in through the COVID-19 website for updates
• Listen to this (an all-time favourite) and if you need to strengthen your emotional sinews, read Invictus (it always gives me a lift….)
Stay safe and stay well.
