I haven't lost mine - yet, but I think my sister has. This is what she's just sent

Just be careful because people are going crazy from being in lock down!

Actually I've just been talking about this with the microwave and toaster while drinking coffee and all of us agreed that things are getting bad.

I didn't mention anything to the washing machine as she puts a different spin on everything, and certainly not to the fridge as he is acting cold and distant.

In the end though, the iron calmed me down as she said everything will be fine, no situation is too pressing. The hoover was very unsympathetic... told me to just suck it up, but the fan was more optimistic and hoped it would all soon blow over!

The toilet looked a bit flushed when I asked its opinion, and didn’t say anything but the door knob told me to get a grip.😬

The front door said I was unhinged and so the curtains told me to ...

Yes, you guessed it ... pull myself together.

Loislane I'm OK. Today is 'go out day' I've got meds to collect and do the shopping. Then I'll get the hoover out, it's a bit like a man though keeps putting things down in wrong place and doesn't always pick things up but at least it doesn't answer back.

Lynibis I'll ask her if there are any more. We both have a great sense of humour as do our 3 kids, something her OH and my ex has/had difficulty with.

Mostly working, catching up on boxsets and playing games. A bit of walking too helps.

Jeez I'm like this everyday with agoraphobia but write down a list of stuff you want to do. Like read a book, bake, things you've wanted to do but not got the time to do. I don't have a garden but all my neighbours are working on theirs, bad time to have hay-fever really πŸ˜‚

It is beginning to feel a bit like Groundhog Day, but I find going out for a walk everyday does help to relieve the monotony at home. I'm reconciled to the fact that it's going to be like this for a while, so I try to make the best of it 😷

I think getting a routine in place is really important if you are in lockdown with one or two others, rather than aimlessly trying to pass the time. I am alone so not so important for me.

If I were still a younger parent I would be making sure everyone got up and made beds, shower/wash/teeth etc. Family breakfast with everyone helping. A set amount of time for teaching/learning while brain is fresh, then an exercise routine even if just dancing around to music. Puzzle/game/play while lunch prepared by a nominated person. Out for your one a day walk. Another bit of learning time, family film and then dinner prep with kids learning to cook and all about food nutrition.

Evening free time to pursue own pastimes, preferably in a different room for me time if it is possible.

Kids bedtime routine and then well deserved drink for parent(s).
