Just that really how are you all keeping busy in the current pandemic?

Keeping busy? It took me an hour to get my breakfast eaten, this morning. I don't get a minute to myself.

Trying to work from home while doing all of the childcare for my toddler. That’s how.

Working. I love this perception of most of the population not working! (Yes, I do realise I am very lucky to still have a job)

I have to work tomorrow but for the last five days I've been listening to books I never managed to read on audible. It's so much easier to listen and maybe multi task a teeny tiny bit.

I am working from home, started before 8 this morning, just having a cup of tea and some Philadelphia on crackers as I missed my lunch! I have had two phone calls which took almost two hours each 🥱.

I painted a window at 6am, just need to put another coat on one bit of the sash when I finish here, hopefully by 5:30 then I need to sew the last bit of my roman blind.

Cooking, rowing, glass of 🍷 tonight before I start it all again tomorrow.

I am grateful to have tons of work and tons to do at home otherwise I would find it really hard.

I'm not busy at all. I go to the shops twice a week and take the dog for a walk once a day. Apart from that my time is my own.

Work and more work. Shopping for ourselves and neighbours. Long runs and dog walks.

WFH (busier than ever), looking after my 4mo DS, walking the dog, cleaning the house.... DH is an essential worker so it's just me holding down the fort

Baking shortbread today. For the next few weeks have decorating to do (paints been sat around for about 6 months) can't put it off any longer. The gardens also need a good sort out, so lots to keep me busy.
