It was inevitable. How to keep fit and active.Spontaneity.At the beginning - Joe Wicks PE until it stoppped. Breadmaking for first time in a very long time. Duolingo Spanish. Using Zoom.It's been ok for us but I could never get used to this way of life.Go to the theatre, a concert, live performances etc.Not to take your health and freedoms for granted.
Frightened. Worried about not seeing the family.Hugs.Making Scrub bags, Scrubs, masks, painting, gardening, patchwork, writing daily journal, cooking. Facebook and Zoom - especially Denman at Home.
I have also carried on as secretary of City WI, co-editing the WI News, ie sorting pennants - quite time consuming at times, and being in contact with digital team. Received encouragement and support from Louise and Mary D.
Kept regular contact with my WI committee. Apart from not having visual contact with family and friends, I have quite enjoyed the discipline of only going out once for exercise.Visit my sister in Essex and daughter in Surrey.It has made me aware of what I need and I now replace items/food when stocks become low.
First one - tolerance
Second one - resignation!
Spontaneity of actions day to day.Microsoft Teams for remote interview panelsLucky to be retired but even so, feeling trapped/stifledBook a holiday!Feel terribly sorry for younger generation, especially workers.
Very grateful for hard work of President and Committee of City WI -brilliant job in hard circumstances - kept in touch with us; very helpful.
Nervous, disappointed.The freedom to do things spontaneously such as popping into a cafe for a coffee and scone, mooching around the shops.During lockdown I've been seeing neighbours on the balcony for a chat. Learned more about Zoom!Lockdown has been difficult. We can get used to anything of course but I miss ther freedom of going where I used to go and doing things on the spur of the moment.To go out for a nice meal with friends.I felt sorry that I couldn't help the family out, as they were working from home and trying to teach the school-age children while also looking after a toddler.
