  3. I'm finding this lockdown/working from home thing boring as fuck so ill take one to pass a few hours.
  4. I've been reading a lot more than I usually would. Using some of the time to get the gardens in order as well. And as I posted in another thread I'm planning to use some of the time to start learning to play the guitar that gathers dust in the spare room.
  5. Thought I'd use this whole lockdown situation to do something productive and attempt to learn to play the acoustic guitar that Mrs Divorced Dad complains clutters up the spare room. Does anyone know of any good online tutorials/websites/YouTube channels for learning guitar? I'd be starting from the very very basics.
  6. This has hit home for me this morning. The grandpa of one of the children in my class died of Covid-19 today.
  7. I've also been collating other things to keep kids busy during this time and have uploaded some items here: https://gofile.io/?c=QDwbjv There's a daily Lego challenge calender, ideas for non-screen activities, creative/art activities and others too. Most of the things I've gathered are from Scottish teacher Facebook and Twitter so if something says First Level on it that's Key Stage 1 in England and Second Level is Key Stage 2.
  8. 7 - 11 would probably be the ideal age range for it.
  9. @Grecian how'd you get on with the time?

  10. They turned up in their own van where the two of them obviously weren't social distancing inside and then worked within a small garden together where they also weren't social distancing.
  11. Gardeners rocked up today to cut the neighbours grass and weed her garden. Hardly a key worker are they?
  12. Close. Littleport Leisure Centre was the prestigious venue.
  13. He can be seen in this video during his measuring schtick and putting the elbow pad back on. Incidentally this show was the first ever show I went to as it was at my local leisure centre. Show featured a young Marty Scurll, PAC and Paul Robinson and a younger Doug Williams. Also the local band who played at this show were classmates of mine and went on to form Mallory Knox!
