Just that
I’m single
I’m sick of my own company after god knows how many days
I’m sat here thinking how I’m going to get through the hours until bed.
I’ve exercised
I’ve cleared up
I’m fucking going out of mind with boredom today
I worked in a pub Saturday & Sunday previous to lockdown.
I’ve been okish up until today but this evening is just doing my head in

That's difficult sad do you have anyone you could meet up outside with?

Fingers crossed you will be able to work again soon?

Oh OP ☹️ that’s tough! I could suggest things to do this evening but I’m pretty sure you’ve probably done them all already during lockdown and have thought of them yourself

It’s my sons milestone birthday this coming week (he’s been isolating at his GF parents house) & is coming for dinner for his birthday this week. I went to buy balloons & banners etc but they are sold out everywhere.
I feel bloody hopeless

Is there time to order them online?

Have you tried volunteering? Charities are more needed now than ever.
You could join a local mutual aid group to support people who are shielding and cant get out.
You could visit (from the end of the drove/garden path people who ate housebound, isolated, lonely.

Volunteering is a good suggestion. There are even things you can do form home like calling people. You have probably considered most things so sorry if this is annoyingly unsuitable but do you have any interests you would like to follow up in this time...online courses or moocs can be really gripping and time consuming. Or a new tv obsession, books....either entertsinment or docu/non fiction about a area that intrigues you. A craft type hobby...following online sewing tutorials, learning calligraphy, colouring etc?

Unfortunately some of these cost which can be a limiting factor, I wonder if there are any book exchanges going on online? I noticed yesterday second hand book shops are open again and you can quarantine the books for a few days to be on the safe side!
