Thought we could do with a thread on ideas to keep sane while social isolating 

I’ll kick off with tonight’s plan

I’ve set up a virtual poker game for tonight , video link with google hangout and all playing on a poker app 

See how it goes but could be fun with a few beers 

Anyone else have any other virtual socialising ideas ??

Online pegging?!

I've been using the cross trainer and doing yoga to keep fit. I've started growing stuff which I'm enjoying. I've also been keeping on top of the housework a lot more than usual which is quite satisfying. And all of the little things that I've been meaning to do for ages like sewing the seam on the duvet cover which has needed doing for at least six months. I feel like I might get organised for the first time in my life.

I’ve always been interested in attending a meditation retreat away from everything.

Ideal opportunity to do it now at no cost at all! I’ll be cheating though because I’ll be eating meat and smoking roll ups.....oh well!

If anyone is interested in such an approach to our new world I would recommend Jon Kabat-Zin’s book.....Full Catastrophe Living. Down to earth approach and lots of thought provoking stuff about living mindfully, making the best of life and helping oneself in an ever changing world.

Brought my spring cleaning forward - i'm a clean freak anyway but the house is fucking immaculate now - feels good too with the virus lurking around i've used enough bleach and cleaners to eradicate it from the entire country.

Forgotten how good zoflora smells too.

Might have a good de-clutter, but will probably save that for Monday when i'm 'working from home' - then I might get my SDR kit out and have a bit of a scan around.

At the suggestion of a friend I'm considering having a go at drawing/painting, which I haven't done since I was at school and used to enjoy but just moved on when I left.

Not got much in the way of materials though, so wondering if worth the risk of popping to the nearest art type shop before everything shuts.

I've got a to do list as long as my fucking arm so in a way this isolation is a god send.

I'm sticking to my plan of mountain bike ride in the morning, DIY and working through the to do list in the afternoon then maybe some gaming in the evening.

I'll try and fit my working from home stuff around that lot 😂

I’m going to examine the sand pit to see if I can decipher meaning in there. Got to be a clue in there to solving the crisis.

I’ll probably go on a long walk but maybe not to the coast judging by the reporting yesterday. Would like to ride the mountain bike but if I get injured it’s to the hospital. Seeing cars racing around now which I expected though the roads are quite.

I was actually due to meet 3 mates (we usually catch up twice a year - once at Glastonbury). Seen as both are out of the question now one of them suggested hangouts for a beer, but I like the idea of us playing a game of poker while we chat. How does one set that up then?

Long walks.

There's no requirement to be stuck indoors.

Though I will miss the pub for lunch.

I went out to Windsor great park yesterday for a walk round Virginia Water lake. I have never seen it so busy. Massive queues for the takeaway only cafe. Shutting the pubs and other cafes really compressed people into one spot. Unintended consequences are a bitch.

Wow, that post didn't develop as I expected!

I was anticipating "never seen it so empty, all there was to see was the deer."

Break in round the back of the pub and pour yourself a beer, before it goes off.

None there.  All the open casks were sold off cheap on Friday and then the breweries collected the unopened on Saturday, repaying the costs.

They couldn't now open if they wanted to.

It's Prohibition. I'd better make some moonshine.
