It seems likely some or all of us will end up spending time at home.

It’s important to stay positive, not get bored and to look forward with determination to the end of all this.

Given we will have time to fill, perhaps people might want to share ideas or books to read, films to watch, online courses they will do or whatever?

I’ll probably read, something I do a lot anyway. When I’ve finished what I’m reading now (the final book in a trilogy of heroic derring-do by Bartle Bull. First book is called The White Rhino) I’ve decided to read The Pickwick Papers by Dickens.

I’ll probably subscribe to Disney + and watch Mandalorian too.

What’s everyone else planning?

Trying hard to keep my mobility going as I don't want to lose what I have gained this year.

Jacinda says you're still allowed to go for a walk (like, literally, I heard her say that a few minutes ago in the press conference).

I'm just looking forward to the reactions of Liverpool fans when this all blows over and there's no Premier League title...

@SaltyNZ I am at risk due to suppressed immune system so I have been in isolation. This means my gate is as far as I can go. We are fortunate to have larger grounds so I can journey around the garden.

Quite so. However, we’ll have plenty of time to fill.

It’s already having an effect. Vodafone call quality here today is abysmal, presumably due to extra load.

I was planning on finishing some of my DIY projects ... however I'm guessing I'm not going to be able to pop to Mitre10 for supplies ... d'oh!

 

Realistically though, I'll be finishing some of the DIY projects that can be finished, getting into reading some books ... and enjoying working from home ...

It's all of us at the moment. The last press conference itself literally pushed things that were on the brink, over the edge. We've got everyone working on it.

I'm actually curious as to what sort of productive work I am expected to get done in the next 4 weeks...
