    I’m finding isolating at home pretty lonely. I’m a single mum and have been sent to work from home until this is all over – or until I catch cv, develop some immunity and can convince my boss that I’m not at risk, I suppose. Parkrun has just been cancelled and I’m gutted.

    I need to find a way to cheer myself up every day, something positive that feels like progress.  I’m still working full time so it has to happen around my eight hours.

    So I’ve decided on a “30 minute task”.

    Like most single mums I’m always flat out and there are things that don’t get done. So now, every lunch time I’m doing 30 minutes weeding the garden. I’ll set an alarm so I don’t overlap into work time and I’ll get 30 minutes fresh air.

    When this is finally over, I will have a beautifully tidy garden to relax in. Maybe I’ll hold a party for the neighbours   🙂


    Any one else got anything planned?

    I am pregnant and I have been sent home till further notice. I am meant to self isolate to protect myself but mostly for the baby.
    I am lucky I enjoy my reading so I just read anything and everything.
    I have no great ideas on how I will spend my time.
