    Been working at the office throughout. My wife is still working from home, and no indication of when she will be returning to the office, not that she is bothered, she is loving working from home

    Still working from home, and they get much more work out of us! And more bloody virtual meetings.

    Lasted 2 weeks working from home, it was a bloody nightmare!! Grass got cut 3 times in one week....
    Opened up the office for me and and another guy, with others working from home. Now have 70% of staff working back in the office - it’s actually working quite well.

    Came back to the office last week, 90% of the staff I would say are back in here now. I'd love to see some split working weeks... 3 days in the office and 2 from home. Never going to happen but it would be nice!

    Still at home 5 days a week. Talk now of going back in one day a week or fortnight but it is optional. Can’t argue really with how work has been throughout this.

    the zero travel is the best thing.

    Both my daughters are working from home, one loves it the other prefers to be in an office environment, yet when working normally they drive to work via the M62 that in itself is stressful, especially the drive home past IKEA etc.

    My wife can't do the drive past IKEA as she drive to it! I hate that place. Full of pretentious people pretending they need a new kitchen and come out with some pot plants and a small stool.

    Me neither. 6 months now working from home. I've been into the studio just 4 times during those months.

    I've just done 2 ridiculous weeks of working a shift though, as they got their first positive in the offices. Despite the fact I'm at home in my own little bubble, they didn't want to upset those in the office who had to work shifts, so I had to do the ssme. Working till 9pm with 2 young kids was a nightmare, luckily back to normal day hours as of Monday.

    I posted a month or so ago that there was talk of us returning for one day every 2 weeks to keep people socialising , but that’s been knocked on the head now and we’ve been told to not expect to be back before March next year. Winner for me. I feel loads better. Less tired for one

    You can claim £6 per week tax relief for home working. Look on HMRC website
