Florence our wonderful Office Manager who has kept the Attic girls positive and connected with her funny (at times weird) quizzes.
We wanted to start this newsletter by saying Thank You. The past couple of months have been hard on everyone all over the world and we need to extend our thanks to you – our candidates. You have been nothing but patient and we are noticing that business is starting to pick up again which is hugely exciting. We will endeavour to keep in touch with you and please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates on the jobs we have on.
We hope you have enjoyed our thoughts and recommendations to get you through lockdown. We have certainly enjoyed doing this; a new thing for us and a new medium to connect with Attic candidates and weirdly we feel more close to lots of candidates having had such positive feedback.
Enjoy our recipes and pictures of the Attic team, we hope you have managed to stay safe and we look forward to calling you about some fabulous jobs hopefully very soon!
Sarah and Kirsty went back to the office this week and found Bob’s favourite toy. He is over the moon to be reunited with his old friend.
During lock down it can be easy to slip into a routine of watching a lot of Netflix, or staring out of the window. To keep our brains ticking over we have been working on some online courses, there are so many fantastic and free resources out there. Check it out.
Alice recently completed a four week course with FutureLearn on Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance where she learnt all about the science and history of mindfulness meditation and how it can be implemented into our usually rather hectic and fast paced lives. The course is delivered through short video lectures, guided meditations and plenty of further reading and articles. FutureLearn has a real range of courses all put together by university lecturers.
For the more creative among us we recommend SkillShare. Home to video craft and design classes where you can even learn how to crochet a plant pot cover using a plastic bag – if that kind of thing tickles your fancy.
The team have also decided to turn their hands at planting some flowers from scratch, Ali is starting with Sweet Peas and Magnolias. Next is some Lavender and perhaps some Rosemary if it all goes well. Daisy is growing chillis and tomatoes. The Royal Horticultural Society has a fantastic website which guides you through getting started and offers advice on how to care for your flowers, fruit and veg and the best months to start growing them. They also handily include a beginner’s guide.
We will report back on this in the coming weeks with photographs.
