    Hi.... my real name is Kay but I go by the name of Katie as my grandmother would say that when I was naughty!  Which, apparently, was often!
    So, ideas guys for self isolation:
    Given the size of your area you live in....heres some tips.... don't over stretch n learn stretch techniques with yoga and meditation tapes
    Crafting:  write one sentence too a story.... think of five characters.... 
    Put them in the worse scenario 
    Origarmi.... today... learn to do a flying swan!
    Paint with your toes
    Dig in a pot and plant a twig ....looking onlinefer growth helps
    Learn three new foreign words and practice them with a national of that country
    Learn to whittle anything constructive .... mend stuffs 
    Embroidery and sewing
    Model clay or use flour ...
    Create with your hands
    Design a new layout of your garden

    Anything else?

    Thank God for my greenhouse ...although I cannot buy compost at this time due to it being inessential merchandise. ( although that's debatable) as if I did not have my greenhouse I would be more anxious and then depressed . I have some of my own compost from last year but that will curtail the number of plants I can have ....but I still consider myself lucky as i can still potter away in the greenhouse ( chatting to my plants )🤔😏😉🙂
    Please keep safe everyone 👍🙏

    Seanchai - some of the supermarkets sell compost. Although you shouldn’t go out just for compost, there is nothing saying you can’t buy some along with your essential groceries when you next go to the supermarket. :)

    Some great suggestions! At the weekend I found an old felting kit so I hope to start that soon. :)

    I also am reading a lot of books!  :D
