Busy with work from approx 9 to 5 or whatever hours I choose - thankful that I have work to keep me busy.

Doing a fair bit of exercise every day, as I have the time and bring the kids up playing football 3/4 times a week, my daughter never kicked a ball before the lock down to happy to see how much has has developed.

Getting used to it all now but at the start it was very difficult, primarily dealing with the 2 kids and trying to get them to do homework etc...

The good weather helps a lot.

You can't do that with more than two. Everyone waiting for their moment to speak. 

I f**king miss the pub!
We usually have 4 or 5 and it’s been grand to be honest but definitely anymore than that and it’s a little awkward. Drink much quicker & fair bit more but get less drunk strangely 
 
I don't know if it's possible to get to a fraction of the level of pissed I normally get while drinking bottles at home compared to pints on a day/night out. And I'm getting through a lot at home!
If I stick to just cans of hophouse I could have 9 or 10 cans and be up at half7 the next morning with the young lad and relatively fresh. If I’d that many pints I’d wrote off for the day 

 
Would you drink loads of shots - you can see the equivalent of shots per beers in this calculator. Makes you think again about a bag of cans 
It would damage this forums' reputation

Working from home so busy monday to Friday thankfully. Used to get up for a run every morning but found running on the road was starting to hurt my knee and hip. Doing a hiit class on the stationary bike no instead.

Bring the dog for a walk in the evening. Might try interval training in the soccer pitch now as grass is better for my joints. 

Was doing a good bit of boozing the first month but have cut back to weekends now as was getting a bit doughy. Doing all that zoom quiz etc. craic.

Finding things okay but get the odd jolt of reality considering things probably won't ever return to normal until a vaccine is found, if one ever is. I know they say globalisation is supposed to be a positive thing but at the age of 28 I've been through 2/3 global recessions an international pandemic and living in a country were realistically I'd probably struggle to buy a house on my own.

The biggest challenge is getting the temp right.

Got 2 pints (In Budweiser glasses!) from the Elpin yesterday. Drove home with 2 pints resting in the passenger seat.

Not worth it.

I was thinking that, as I was driving really fast to get home.
