What Are You Doing While in Isolation?

Recommended Posts

I expect those that stocked up on toilet paper have a penis red raw but for the rest of us, what are you doing?

Bought a bundle of stuff from my hardware store, so I have shelving units to assemble to sit out my shed, and need to purge my before patch and replant winter vegetables. Bought paint and decking oil to oil our deck and paint the window boxes externally.

Other than that...

Working from home, and doing more hours as a result.

Spending a lot more time with my kids. This is normally a good thing, buy it's not in this situation they are driving me up the wall.

Probably spending more time reading about the corona virus than is good for me.

Working from home constantly. A bit of a chore considering the usual role entails going out and about.

Aside from work:

On Netflix more.
Playing board games with parents...a lot of Scrabble. Might invest in some more games as might be in this situation for a bit longer!
Watching a lot of re-runs of games/highlights I have recorded on BT or MOTD.
Trying to exercise a bit more (also linked to the work situation)
Cleaned out a lot of stuff from my room today - clothes to be given to charity and a lot of stuff accumulated over months/years.

Trying to finish this book I've been working on for a while. Going for jogs. Eating probably more than I need to. Trying to rekindle my interest in the Paradox Interactive classics.

Sorry, went out for a beer on the balcony xD

I haven't done it for a loooong time. Last time I built an actual model was probably over 20 years ago. But I agree, it's very calming... Hence why I decided to order some again!

Around 8 square meters. Well it's more of a loggia than a balcony haha. 

So get new models and start doing it again!!!

Reading, sleeping, coming on here, eating, reading again, talking to the daughter & grandsons via Cam Corder on here and the mobile, watching a lot of Netflix & Youtube movies, nipping downstairs just to stand next to the communal back garden for a few minutes to see a bit of sky and get some fresh air, by the time this virus thing gets sorted out and we will be allowed back out again the first port of call will be the barber's shop to get my hair cut as by then I will look like an old grey-haired hippy.

Used to do that when I was around 14, normally Airfix kits, tanks, planes, ships, soldiers, I would assemble them all and then paint them, my bedroom was littered with them, I had models of German Panther & Panzers I, II, III, IV, American, Shermans and British Churchills, aeroplanes hanging from my bedroom ceiling if they were all having dogfights, British Spitfires, Blackburn B.24, American Mustang, German Messerschmitt's etc.

I ordered a treadmill on the 19th which I'm hoping will be delivered before Wednesday.

When it comes I'm going to start doing C25K. Other than that it's just business as usual for me. I work from home anyway so nothing has really changed other than I can't go to the cinema.

Seems a bit harsh to have his bike taken... do they make sure they escort you home or drag you off then if they catch you out because if not he is still out but now he just has no bike?? What's the rules?? 

People here are still not taking it seriously... I went to the newsagents this morning about 7am and it was pretty quiet. Felt like a Sunday morning, then when I was back down the shops at around 10am to get some bread there seemed to be quiet a build up... I have just got back from walking the dog about 30 minutes ago and there were a lot more people out, I just don't think that some people are getting the seriousness of it all?? I will be popping down to Tesco's with the missus about 3pm and if it's busy out again I might start dobbing people in to the old bill....

They've made zones in the city they are laxed in areas with grocery stores, pharmacy etc but there the police has made it clear that it's the shops responsibility to make sure social distancing etc but if you are outside of that area you better have a good reason of being out. 

Nope they only dropped him off where they find him.

Working.

Football Manager.

Going for a walk (while keeping my distance from everyone) once a day. 

Cooking. 

Eating.

Some more Football Manager.

Reddit. 

Netflix. 

Looking out of my window to see if anyone breaks the rules. 

Sitting in my chair in positions that are absolutely not okay for multiple parts of my body. 

Sleeping.

When the lockdown started I asked myself what I wanted to do that was something I slated for 2020 and the top of the list was going to a workshop so that went out the door. I started doing all the usual stuff like

  • Upskilling my language bucket (programming) by learning data processing with R and R.NET
  • Spending more time learning what my team wants to do with their careers and actually helping them chalk out a plan to improve their skills to get where they want to be. Then the hard part of enforcing the learning with the work they are given.
  • Gaming more with friends than playing solo (a friend of mine and me did a run of Darksiders : Genesis on a stream for four days). Thinking we'll get over to playing GTFO next. If you haven't seen it yet its quite fun - http://gtfothegame.com/
  • Building a new Gunpla (model building). I am taking this slow and spending more time on finishing plastic parts with no seams.
  • Learning to play guitar pieces that are classical in nature like Asturias. Doing this more to just keep my hands in shape as I practice everyday for an hour now and I think my speed has improved but won't know till I am in a room with the guys from the band. 

In all of this I am seriously avoiding streaming services as they make me sit on the couch and I really don't want to sit too idle as it annoys me that I could be doing other things. I'll watch the odd show here and there but I know some friends who have told me they finished an entire season of XYZ in a day and I don't knock it because it gives them some form of escape from whats going on but its not for me.
