Has anyone just stayed home, not gone out anywhere today?

I’ve kept myself to myself, been back to my empty home (caring for Df) to collect a couple of things

Not been anywhere else, no shopping, no going to the park etc

It’s not easy, but I want to keep safe

I have been to the shop for food ( local in the village ) on sat morning early. But that is it. Nowhere else. We were told to stay in. My family are staying in.

I have to work next week. But to work and back again. That’s it.

Yes I’ve not left the house for 8 days. Tough with 3 kids but coping!

Yes, stayed home all day and yesterday. Gardening, pottering around etc. No intention of going out unless I absolutely have to.

We haven't been told to stay in (unless old or vulnerable). We have been told to practise social distancing. The deputy chief medical officer was very clear about this in Friday.

Me! With all that's going on, I'm not really in the mood for going out. Had a tough week, so decided to just relax and unwind at home this weekend.

@PicturesOfCats that’s not very nice

I went for a run this morning (wide berth to the few people I saw) then pottered about the house. Two loads of washing dried on the line, winning!

Not been out since Tuesday except for yesterday to walk the dog in the woods behind my house. No health problems with me or the kids but dh is a key worker so out and about anyway and has done our Tescos run for the week.

No - I went for a a 9,000 step walk on my own around lunchtime. Kept social distance and enjoyed the sunshine.

Mumtoanimals Sun 22-Mar-20 20:39:17

I have only left the house to get essentials- food ect. Trying to limit the amount i leave the house the best i can. Hard though

Prepenultimate Sun 22-Mar-20 20:39:26

Yes. Me and 2 DSs have all stayed at home today- though I did mow the lawn at the back

ChazsBrilliantAttitude Sun 22-Mar-20 20:39:33

Yes. We all got out into the garden to get some sunshine. My London Borough has a lot of cases so no point in going out unnecessarily.

IpanemaGallina Sun 22-Mar-20 20:39:33

Home all day, and yesterday, and day before that.....

Redda Sun 22-Mar-20 20:39:41

I haven't been out since Wednesday, not self isolating just haven't needed to go anywhere so following advice really - bought things on Amazon and have been doing jobs around the house and in the garden, spoke to people on the telephone. I will need to venture out at some point this week but only for essentials.

AntennaReborn Sun 22-Mar-20 20:39:54

Yes, we just went out for a walk with DD in the early evening, when I knew the streets would be deserted. I am not planning on encountering any other humans other than DD and DH for the next few weeks, other than shop staff occasionally

DesLynamsMoustache Sun 22-Mar-20 20:40:18

Yep, day 3 of staying in. Had food delivered, both working from home, no reason to go out. I know we don't strictly have to, but I'd rather just stay in if we've no real reason to leave. It's just safer and easier for us and we're fortunate we can chose to do so. DD's MMR is booked for April 1 so that's the first time I think we will have to leave the house, if it still goes ahead. We spent time getting garden in good shape today as think we will be using it a lot in the weeks and months to come!

PorpentinaScamander Sun 22-Mar-20 20:40:37

Yep. Haven't been out since last Tuesday. I only went out 2-3 days per week anyway due to my MH.

HoffiCoffi13 Sun 22-Mar-20 20:40:40

I’ve been at home for 9 days now with my husband and 3 children as we’re self isolating due to one of us having a cough.
No it’s not easy, but it’s necessary. I hope you have many more days where you stay at home all day over the next few weeks OP.
