Speaking

I always stay at home in February and march and we need to go to the office 2 or 3 days per week.
We are normal / we went back to normal in May.

Sometimes I really like working from home because when I work at office I need to take subway 1h but when I work at home I just wake up and work but the disadvantage is I felt I worked the whole day.
