    Hi @Adrian_Scope and @chiarieds I would love that, I’ll have to check it out. I’ve been super busy doing little things here and there. We had a leak so had to rip up all of our flooring, nice hard labour?? painted the kitchen, some diy projects, researched new things, I’m also working from home and watching lots of tv and reading books so that will keep me busy??☺️

    Hi @R_J25 and welcome to the Community.  How are you today?  It's nice to meet you.  You certainly sound very busy and so glad you are kept going through these challenging times.  What kind of volunteering do you do?  I too enjoy watching movies and reading books.  I'm sure you will find plenty to talk about on our forum as lots of people here enjoy books and movies too, amongst other things.  I hope you enjoy your time with us anyway and I look forward to seeing you on here.  If we can be of any help/support to you then please just give us a shout.  All the best.  :smiley:

    Morning @Ails I’m good thank you, I’ve done a variety of different types. I went to New Orleans last year and helped build houses for hurricane victims. I help out at a youth club for disabled children. Help with the Crisis (homeless charity) events. Was going to be helping with hosting some homeless people at my church but unfortunately because of what’s going on, I can’t as my mum is considered high risk so don’t want to take the risk

    HI @RJ_25 it really is amazing how so much has gone online, would never have thought priests in our parish could learn to record and stream services on you tube but they are!!  What would we have done without all this technoology?
     I hope you got some of your work completed as your deadline is looming :smiley:

    That's a lot of books! I'm on my 12th book at the moment. I often use goodreads to see the current books. :)
