MikeB4: I have also started trying as many Linux distros as I can. Cleaning at my server and storage NAS.

I have also got some kitset aircraft that purchased a few years back but haven't been able to build. My hand mobility has improved to a point where I can try and build them. This will be great physical and mental therapy.

 

That is a great idea, mainly as it is different, a change, a challenge.

Bought a fence post to put the last trellis up.

 

Paint for the new fence and last trellis panel.

 

Paint for the window sills in the bedrooms.

 

Restain the deck and outdoor furniture.

 

30 seconds on drive and paths.

 

Repaint the pergolas.

 

Clean bricks and lay between the raised gardens.

 

Crikey, 4 weeks might not be long enough?

You have inspired me. In a previous life, in retail therapy, I bought a Billings Boats Serie 800 801 Mayflower. Looks complex as, I will start on that if and when my work dries up. Its wood and string, looks great.

Be nice to see a series of photos as the models get built :-)

Went and got all my tools from a job I've been working on. I'm going to be busy building a few things at home while this plays out.

I'm slap bang in the middle of a real estate transaction and on the surface I look very calm. Underneath...not so much.

 

Not sure I would have steady enough hands to build models!

I have a second-hand copy of God of War that I bought myself for Christmas. I haven’t installed it yet but tomorrow I’m going to fire up the PS4 Pro and get stuck into it over the next few weeks.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I'm fortunate enough to be employed in an "essential services" business and have a role that can be performed from home. So I'm going to be kept plenty busy doing what I do everyday, just in a different setting.

Work, possibly more than usual because critical infrastructure.

 

Possibly go for motorcycle ride if I can get some clarity on whether that's allowed. Surely if it's okay to walk to the park, likely walking past people on the footpath within breathing distance - then me wearing a closed helmet, full body gear and not stopping at all apart from deserted self-service petrol stations (which a lot of people will still use every week - including those who walk in and share the air with staff) will be okay.

 

Btw the word "travel" includes moving by foot, but is generally over a distance.

I'm going to be baking a variety of fresh bread(got Flour Water Salt Yeast(book) for xmas) and trying to learn how to cook anything I typically enjoy as takeout as I don't have that much confidence cooking in the kitchen(baking is more a science lol). Start easy with stuff like egg fried rice and work my way further along, seems a perfect time to change my eating habits if I choose to cook the bulk of it you know?

Thanks mate. There are so many articles out there, they come out faster than I get a chance to read them (often with 90% of the same old info, 1000s of words more than necessary).

 

Some of the info was also not clear regarding travel, and people in motorcycle groups on FB are at war over the interpretations of the (more brief) rules.

 

I'm also not so keen to trust articles written by clickbaiters alone.
