How is Everyone Keeping Their Self Sane during the Pandemic?

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm going completely mad during all of this. I'm running out of things to do!

I've gradually sorted the garage, rearranged the living room and made the spare bedroom into a much better working space. Somebody I had a businesses meeting with the other day though said she couldn't be bothered with even tidying though to each to their own! The way I'm looking at it is it'll be good to come out of this with a better living space, a bit like tidying the house before you go on holiday.

I watch limited news reports and try to stay outside in the garden as much as possible. I also bought an optics measure because I realised alcohol was not the answer. There are lots and lots of jobs that I could tackle but I select one per day and motivate myself to clear it. I've given up on vacuuming - my house has never been so clean and it doesn't make me feel any better. You are not alone!

Started off well doing loads of things at Home & In the garden, but the past week or so seem to have totally lost any motivation to do anything. Just now seem to be wasting days doing nothing in particular really, honestly can't wait to get back to work and some normality, another three weeks of lock down to go yet thou.

Mango4 I had a few days feeling like that earlier this week but still working from home personally. It's that feeling of disconnection from everyone creeping up on us. Are you furloughed then?

Dennab Actually I'm not furloughed I am extremely lucky in so much that I am still being paid, with the proviso that I remain available for work if required, so far I haven't been needed thou.

Mango4 I feel lucky too although losing money with lack of freelance work away from my PAYE job due to it being in the hospitality industry. You must work for a good company.

I have a 17 month old, so I'm kept very busy! I've been decluttering the house, doing a deep clean of each room, doing lots of different activities with my son and spending time in the garden. My husband has been cooking more.

I have tidied up the garden and done lots of weeding out there. I am back to work tomorrow so looking forward to getting back to a bit of normality.

Still working here but outside my working hours I'm doing eff all. Lot of gaming but that is only entertaining to a point. I miss playing sports a lot. Dying to play and train for my local cricket and football club.
