Pippa O’Connor has revealed what it’s really like working from home with her husband, Brian Ormond.

Like thousands of others around the country, the pair have spent the last few months working from their home office or kitchen countertop, following Covid-19 guidelines.

Even though Pippa and Brian have worked together for years and their overall experience was really good, they found some days in lockdown particularly trying.

Speaking to VIP Magazine, Pippa said, “It makes such a difference if your partner works in the office all the time and then suddenly is not leaving the house.

“Don’t get me wrong – Brian and I had days we didn’t like and couldn’t look at each other – it was so intense. But yes, we are used to working together so that does make it easier.”

One thing they’re both incredibly grateful for, is the additional time they’ve got to spend with their little boys, Louis and Ollie.

From outdoor adventures and fun afternoon on their bikes, to movie nights at home tucked up on the couch, they were able to make some lovely family memories – which she hopes the boys will hold onto for years to come.

“I’d like to hear someone else ask the boys what they thought of lockdown. I think you’d get a truer answer,” she mused.

“But I think they’d say we had a nice time because it was mild and we were outside a lot, and mum and dad were home every day, and they got to stay up late! I think – I hope – they have good memories.”
