Keeping Yourself Busy during Lockdown

In the News

What's everyone up to during lockdown? My neighbours have created a private group so we can help each other. If someone needs something from the shop, someone will drop it off on the doorstep if they're going. Bit of a busy day today, because we've got a virtual tour of Chester Zoo starting at 10.00 am, followed by a virtual quiz, bingo and virtual pub!

What do you think of this?

Excellent! I think it is wonderful when people make the effort to do stuff like this. I wish someone could do it in my neighbourhood. I know you will say I should do it but wouldn't have a clue as I don't know most of my neighbours names, let alone phone numbers/email, and I guess it would defeat the object of lockdown if I venture out knocking on doors.

No stay indoors, but maybe once it's safe to go out again, you could introduce yourself and suggest starting a Facebook group for your neighbours to help each other in times of need?

I haven’t really done much but still taking the dogs for a walk daily, Bolto our bigger dog whines and trots round on the laminate flooring all morning until you take him out πŸ˜‚ I want to bake a chocolate cake but I don’t think I have the right stuff in to make one and would probably mess it up lol

Hi CherylParry

Just make sure everyone involved in your neighbourhood delivery service is aware

coronavirus can live up to a day on cardboard, according to a study published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine. So people bringing packages and bags in from their doorstep need to take care.

Yeah and start using a bucket of warm water and a facecloth to wipe yer bum!

Not only will it save you stress and hassle of shopping but will save you Β£200 per year and added BONUS - Zero skid marks on yer Y's.

😜

Dont say i dont provide help and money saving advice on here as well as a laugh lol

Panelbase i think i have seen but not the other two.

Whats the survey length like?

I prefer short surveys cant stand those 25 minutes surveys for a few pennies!

Nectar also do surveys but they tend to be quite long and fib something awful about the points and how long they last!

Loislane garygemmell I've got Β£46 this year from Panelbase, some are long some not 70p - Β£1.40 for 10/15 mins. Branded is US and you have to be quick, you say how many emails you want per hr + bonus if you gain certain number of points in month (points convert to cash). Maximiles not doing much because you have to claim from the list of goods.

lilyflower No - old Opel Manta centre exhaust section and Gym bench and weights from my old bodybuilding days - i had recently joined the local gym as well to restart my bodybuilding i am sorely dischuffed now - your husband working out at home and 60+ years old as well really hit a nerve actually!

Wine cellar is now a storage area since mum and dad died recently - sad but true the house is no longer home without them!

lilyflower Yeah i was offered Β£200 and had a guy just round the corner from my place offer me Β£100 last night he was begging me and phoning constantly i felt a bit sorry for him but the first lady was an NHS worker and its for her 17 year old son who is bored and wants to "not be skinny" - he turned up last night with his dad to pick it up and it pure warmed my heart to see the old gym gear i started out with going to another young man to hopefully start him off on the gym and health and fitness route.

Must admit i did find it hard to see it go but then i saw the Β£80 in my bank account and soon forgot about it haha

Your old man will probably appreciate that - what can i say i may be a tightbum but i do have a heart!

Stupid as my brother calls it!!!

I'm doing two of three jobs from home. I consider myself to be one of the lucky people. As garygemmell has clearly illustrated though, there is no excuse for just sitting on your rear end and feeling sorry for yourself with Netflix. There are plenty of opportunities to earn money at home so go out there and find them.
