Things to do during corona virus

I hope everyone is okay.  I was born with Scoliosis, which is a curve of the spine and it affects my lungs too.  I am at high risk of getting the Corona virus.  How are you spending your time indoors?  Have you got any fresh air?  I have been watching films, doing a bit of tidying up and doing makeup looks, which is one of my hobbies. I have a Facebook page called See the person, not just the condition/disability  Like my page if you want to.  I also have a beauty blog

    Hi @Sarah1984. I also have scoliosis as well as other things. Fortunatley my lungs aren't affected by it. I live 2 minutes walk from the river seven so take my dog along the riverbank for a walk everyday. She loves it and spends quite a lot of her time in the river. I also do a lot of painting so that takes up a bit of my time and there is always the dreaded housework to do!
