In these difficult confined times what are you up to ?

I’ve shaved my legs.

I ought to tidy up those cupboards and wardrobes but I haven't got the inclination! Probably will enjoy it after a few weeks (months?) of this! confused

Nothing. Well, online teaching, but nothing else.

I located a swans nest on my walk this morning I’ll have a reason to walk that way every day just to keep an eye on them.

I've put my washing out for the first time this year. And the blooming line went and fell over! grin

I now have no excuse to stop me finalising my village hall accounts!

Glorious sunshine here in NE Scotland. My weather app shows unbroken sun and mild temperatures all day. The windows are open and a breeze blowing through. The psychological thought of all that fresh air is uplifting.

Also, there are some long-tailed-tits flying up to the windows and fossicking around. I think the sun has brought out little insects from the wood frames. Not that my house has any cobwebs, oh no, never! grin

I’ve just walked a mile - in my kitchen. Watched a YouTube video with a slightly screechy woman “teacher”. I enjoyed it though and it cheered me up as I was feeling a bit fed up.

Spent two hours trying to fathom out how to put Skype on my tablet so that DH and I can see the DGC's.

DH is technosavvy so I dare not mention that I am struggling. confused

I took my dog for a walk in the woods earlier today it was lovely and quiet. Only saw couple of other dog walkers at a distance. Waiting for grocery delivery, looks like I’m only getting half of what I ordered, oh well, grateful for small mercies 😳

Been doing a bit of Spring Cleaning, beds all changed, sheets, duvet covers washed and dried outside and now ironed. Looking good smile

I am in the can't draw/won't draw' terrified of drawing group. I sat at the kitchen table and started a drawing from a photograph of my lovely young dog, who died at six last year. I'm in discussion with myself about continuing this new thing.

I've got two loads of washing on the line.
As it was so nice outside, I stayed and did some weeding. But had to laugh, as I was kneeling and moved away from my kneeler, then realised I couldn't get up. So there I was crawling across the grass to my kneeler, where I finally managed to stand up.
Glad I was in the back garden, and not a sight for sore eyes in the front.

SalsaQueen Wed 18-Mar-20 14:19:12

Confined? If only - I've been to my 2 part-time jobs today, got a few bits of shopping, collected a parcel from the sorting office, picked up something I ordered from Marks and Spencer, and now I'm going to do the vacuuming, mopping and ironing at home.........

MiniMoon Wed 18-Mar-20 15:37:09

I rarely bake, but as there is no knit & natter group today or for the foreseeable future, I made a rolled gingerbread. Its cooling in the kitchen, smells good.

Spent much of the day texting or on the phone. Have changed my bed though.

I walked into Waitrose Godalming at noon. looked as if it had been visited by a plague of locusts. People buying literally anything whether they normally eat it or not.
Saw one woman with, among other things, 20 large peppers, I was next in the queue and counted.
I bought a pack of Garibaldi biscuits, ditto Nice biscuits and 3 large potted plants of which there were plenty on the outside display.
Yesterday, M&S was ravaged.
Today, no eggs. How long do people think fresh goods last? It's worse than Brexit.

BlueSapphire Wed 18-Mar-20 16:32:05

Gave the bedroom and en-suite a good clean this morning.
Replied to emails, read the paper, had a go at the crosswords and sudokus
Can't do much st the moment - one very comfortable cat on my lap!
Must put the bin out soon.
Been raining all afternoon so no gardening.

Missfoodlove Wed 18-Mar-20 18:18:16

Kitchen dresser sorted

GabriellaG54 Wed 18-Mar-20 18:29:59

Which is the before and which the after?

Regarding the shortage of loo rolls I am dragging my bidet, screaming and shouting no doubt, out of retirement.
