This was the most “looking-forward-to” event in 2020 – going away for a short trip over a long weekend. We would get excited to go for coffee run before this happened to us. So you can imagine what a huge upgrade it felt like; leaving behind the city vistas and going to a place closer to nature.
As kids we played a lot of games and I just don’t mean outdoor games but also indoor ones. I personally had a huge collection of G.I. JOEs and HE-MAN and conjured up some crazy imaginative worlds within the confines of my home. But the one that really challenged me and my imagination was Monopoly.

I think it is safe to assume that none of us, and I mean NONE OF US, saw online education coming, at least in the primary sector.
