How to take some of the pain out of working from home

Q: I started a new job nine months ago. Since then, I’ve met only about five of my colleagues face to face, and just for brief periods. We’ve all been working from home, and I feel quite isolated. We do all the usual bonding stuff such as online cookery and cocktail-making events but they’re not the same.

Should I write to them saying I would like to work for them in the future? (ER, email).
