Lockdown & Self-Isolation Boredom - ideas!

Recommended Posts

No football, no rugby, no darts, no Formula 1, no NASCAR, no Indycar, no NBA, no NHL, no cricket etc etc

So no TV sport to pass the time

Limited travel opportunity

Limited or no socialising

It's going to be a boring six months

So what to do?!!

It looks as if London is already self isolating!

Victoria station at 17.30 this evening  - almost empty

Read books, listen to the radio, watch forum, listen to music, out and about where there's no people, plenty of audio books on youtube, sort out all the filing of household paperwork.

So not much difference for me. Biggest loss will be the Saturday clan gathering.

Viruses don't like booze, is that true? :biggrin:

Alcohol is also used to preserve body organs...

Not working on mine:laugh:.

On a serious note:

Get the tools out and practice some Watch repair, looks like thats what I will be doing as work has dried up due I think most probably to Covid 19.

Haven't touched a Watch movement since Christmas and I really must knuckle down if I am to become a pro.

It would have to be spirit, straight.

At least you can cancel your sky sports subscription @JoT

My wife has discovered that you can order wallpaper online, so I am not sure six months will be enough for what she has planned for me.  Amazon also do decent whisky offers to ward off infection. 

Any time left over will be going through the masses of watches that need servicing, or restoration of my toy car.

Keep healthy everyone

Started learning Piano from home about a month ago, looks like I'll be getting plenty of practice time.

Taking time to ensure, particularly the elderly & vulnerable, our immediate community have the essentials to get through this crisis without putting themselves at additional risk.

A brief phone call daily to ensure all is well, in most cases, will lift spirits...including our own!

We can all do so much more.

Fingers crossed they let you back in when you feel like it. :biggrin:

Correct but don’t forget to have a bit of scran with your breakfast.

As for something to do you could always go on a bog roll hunt.

Like you we actually need some

The good old days

Fortunately we have one of those Premier Inns with a boozer/restaurant attached about 500 yards from our flat so if it gets desperate we can just use their facilities

The best advice I can give in a case of self isolation is to watch as much Sir David as you can!  :thumbsup:

Due to the risk of late frost, and not wanting to catch a chill of any description which might further lower my 'resistance', I have reluctantly agreed not to be cut out of my winter underwear until 27th April.  2020 (for the avoidance of doubt)

 

What sacrifices are you making?

I was expecting you to make the joke that you thought this year's Australian F1 Grand Prix was the most exciting one yet! :biggrin:

It's the same here in Thailand. Very quiet where I am. Trying to stay out of the way as much as possible - at least you can trust the figures in the UK - so there are plants to pot, old mates to be chased up online, all sorts of paperwork to be dusted off and looked at, a DVD collection to be re-acquainted with, books to be read and empty beaches to be walked. I would normally swim more but recovering from a cataract op, so under orders not to.
