So, tonight after spending 12 hours working, I m self isolating in my study with two bottles of Chateau Mauriac Bordeaux (2016 in case you were interested).  Oh, and a packet of peanuts and Rogue on Amazon Prime.  Thandi at her naked best!

Gotta love self isolation

So, what are you guys and gals up to.  Let's keep it clean and upbeat.... :)

I posted this yesterday on my Faceslap page but thought it worthy of a repost here, . I've just heard a doctor on TV saying in this time of self isolation due to Coronavirus, we should focus on i

Well, I self isolated in my old car today.  I filled it up for the 20th time this month, it's got a drinking problem. And working from home is fcuking boring so I've decided to drink more too.  J

Two things keeping me occupied currently. First of all, with all this talk of whether electric cars are really the future I thought I’d dip my toe in the market, so bought and built this.

I've worked from home for 12 years so it doesn't feel that different in truth apart from now going to the pub every evening. I'm watching films and playing Warzone but the pub are delivering me beer most days in milk cartons it's not all bad.

Not used to it at all. Spent all day gardening (won't be allowed to do that on my own again) seemed preferable to other things on THE list

Tracy and I have been pretty much isolated for 3 weeks.  Fortunately we both have shedloads of hobbies.  Today started with a walk in the park (literally across the road) followed by a bit of admin, then remaking some of the Lego Millennium Falcon, gin, dinner and now a bit of TV.  Tracy's sewing some little tote bags for the grandkids.

Later on, as I expect this to be several months,  it'll be photo projects, pen making, scale modelling, more Lego, a bit of woodwork, and much to Tracy's disgust I might pick up the guitar again.  And I have my TAL telescope to recommission.  Might also do some fettling on my own car for once.  I will run out of time before I've done everything I'd like to.

I'm also making a life-size model of the Humber Bridge out of toilet roll inserts.

If curry ain't essential, I don't know what is.

I've been exclusively been working from home for a few months due to problems with the spine and 'flu, but am half way through a two week break where I'd planned to get things done, involving trips to shops etc, so instead I'm getting on with the garden, currently re-building the fruit cage. If it were a normal time I'm sure a 77yr old neighbour would be round to help & chat, it isn't exactly the same but not very different.

I’ve been working stupid hours for the last month. So I knocked off at 8 tonight and am enjoying one of the nice bottles of Chianti the CUO sent me as a thank you whilst watching Endeavour and trying to forget about my ever growing inbox.

And off-licenses are now one of the essential shop types.

But bizarrely not in Northern Ireland as my colleagues there all down their tools in the house to run round and stockpile before they closed!

Called in at Weston's Cider after work and they very kindly sold me several cases of Vintage.

On the way home I was briefly behind a van which had scrawled in the dirt on the back "No loo rolls left in this van overnight"

I'm semi-retired and as the boat yard in Great Yarmouth has shut, construction of the new boat I'm supposed to be monitoring has ground to a halt. This means that I have nothing to do work-wise, and all day to do it in. Thankfully, having an engine in bits is manna from heaven for engineer and OCD tinkerer like me, so I can be fully occupied in my garage if I so desire.

Unlike some here, me and her have been off the booze for four weeks, only falling off the wagon once, and have discovered the art of menu-planning which is a bit of a novelty for us, as we tend to be a bit haphazard in that respect. The result means we're not throwing as much food away as usual, and whilst sometimes I don't really want what's for dinner that evening, I tell myself to put up, and shut up. As one of the reasons I retired was to spend more time with the wife, things are working well in that respect. Last year I started growing some chilli plants, and this year's are well on the way. Flowers are all well and good, but with chillies there's something to be gained in nurturing them as they produce something that can be eaten. It doesn't take up much of my time, but it's a little bit of variety which helps.

A mate of mine who lives a couple of miles away is also retired, although younger than I am. He's bored shitless, because his only hobby was his job, which ironically he bitched and moaned about for years. The lockdown has exacerbated his situation, and he's always on the phone to me, talking about nothing of any importance, just because he's got sod all to do.

@Neal H, your fridge probably has greater computing power in it than that.  I used one of those when I first joined the IT industry many, many, years ago. Great machines and yes, built to last. In good working order that'll have real value today so treat it nice.

I remember one of those computers making the rounds via our school when I was but a lad.

The things you see on a car forum.

Oh, and @Mark Blanchard. There is still something wrong with your car. Not sure, but the steering wheel may be on the wrong side or do you have very long arms and legs? :getmecoat:

It probably fell down the back of the sofa. Have you looked there!
