    Prag, I'd green you with a complementary comment about your kids etc, but in light of you mentioning that you don't read them, reputation ... I won't

    Great work with them.

    Chitty, good idea for a thread.

    Some great ideas and info all, keep them coming.

    Day 2 of isolation here involved a 2 hour cycle, a 1 hour dog walk, 4 hours of English class work and finally a game of Monopoly that has just ended in world war 3.

    It is adversarial is monopoly, always created arguements. Whatever you do don't introduce them to risk

    Outstanding Prag, that's the way forward.

    This self isolation is turning into a positive.

    @ Chez Chitty we have gathering dust, the following instruments.

    Trumpet
    Guitar
    Ukelale
    Recorder
    Drum Kit
    Violin
    Electric Organ
    a few more i'm sure.

    in years to come when they look back, they can say i learnt to play a musical instrument whilst i was self isolating.

    If the weather was this good all the time, then we could go camping and have some proper picturesque isolation in the Highlands of Scotland.

    Trouble is we'll set up camp and come down with the Virus.

    Better off staying home for now...

    Just popped out to get some supplies, looks like Dill has visited the chicken section.

    Listening to Radio 5 live and had Carol Vorderman talking about her Pearson Maths tutorial which are normally 2 / week but during this time when kids are on quarantine Pearson are offering it free.

    Now i haven't gone on to look at it but Vord the Board is alright in my books. She did say they had high sign up volumes and as such they were having to take the server offline a couple of times to cope with the sign on backlog. I assume but don't know if those outside the UK are offered it free.

    For those like Chitty, Dill, Lulu or Prag et al it looks like a good free source.

    Here's me daughter having her online music lesson...



    This is a major imposition on family life and I now have to crawl along the floor behind her while lessons are on... or else actually put some clothes on.

    The school has had to issue some guidelines for the online lessons, as kids were sitting on their beds in pyjamas, munching away on bags of crisps. The school wants kids dressed properly and not eating!

    We've settled into some kind of routine... 7am dog walk, breakfast for daughter and then online lessons start at 8am. A lunchtime swim livens her up, and then after the day has finished another swim, street dog feeding and some other stuff. Today she started painting un-prompted, which was great. In between lessons we just take pictures of Dan, one of our dogs!



    We've been trying to find some talents after watching Pragmatic's wonderful video. The daughter can already say her name in burps, but that's about it. I showed her how to make bubbles in the pool today, but she wasn't very impressed.

    To be honest, my life is just the same with this self-isolating. The only difference is no school runs morning and afternoon, which is great.

    But what about a few months down the road... no work, no income and no escape?

    I ignored buying and renting malarkey.

    Always the banker.

    Initial smiles when loans were handed out turned into howls when the "players" were unable to meet their repayment calls.

    Oh what fun we had illustrating the facts of over-borrowing on a fixed income and advantages of cash savings.

    Some real Mancs said that before. The Happy Mondays about Maggie putting them on the dole straight out of school.
