How are you keeping yourself busy thread!
 
With a lot of us having extra free time I thought it might be helpful to share some of the things people are doing to keep themselves busy through the day.

I've been planting up a lot of my veg, oth for the summer (toms, spuds, beans etc) and some quick growing stuff like salad leave which can be harvested quickly.

I've got a fair number of books to get through (drunken book buyer) and might get the pencils out and do some sketching at some point.

Also looking after a small child is taking up plety of time and then a bit of gaming thrown in too.

Fair bit of gardening. Cutting back/pruning cutting the grass and have some seeds on the go in the greenhouse.
Reading......a hell of a lot.
Been baking, scones and flans etc.
Looking at cr@p on the internet.
Facetiming with my family especially lovely grandkids [^]
Listening to music and restricting my news consumption. Keep informed but the rolling 24 hour coverage not good for your mental health if not careful.
A few bike rides...on my own.
Stay safe and well mate.

Home educate anyway so doing normal work with the kids (but both of us at home instead) till half term.

They are missing all their social groups and friends though (usually 4 a week for a few hours a day).

Instead we have been trying some new things:

Bonsai - wiring and pruning a tree!
Created animations on a free program called opentoonz
Watched a few films
Weathers been great so plenty of garden time and garden games.
Baking.
Made sock puppets/other crafts.
Coding using scratch.


As for the adults - been backtesting a new addition to my trading plan. 10 years of data through 28 forex pairs. It's taking a long time!

We don't have to stay at home. We have to follow the advice of the experts, and if you are out, self distance with 2m from the nearest person. I did that.

You're supposed to be avoiding "non essential journeys"......ie: staying at home!

Today’s my first day ‘working from home’. So got all the housework done, went to Tesco to get stuff for tea, washed the car, cut the grass and at one point checked my emails 😁

Gin later [:D][:D]

Last month I bought an 85 cd bundle of second hand Blues cds on ebay so here goes. Fortunately they are modern blues and not wrist slitting delta blues. Only 12 of them I had already so not bad for £20 plus P&P.

Also dusted off the keyboards and getting down to remembering how to play, some 50 years on. Currently trying Free Bird.
