I've just checked the calendar and realised that the last time I was in any large group of people was a full month ago, for two funerals. Since then I have had only two live conversations outside my household or street, and one of those was very brief. The other was with our youngest, at a safe distance, when she dropped some stuff off for Mrs MSB on Mother's Day. My normal busy and varied routine to all intents and purposes ended a month ago. Whilst I accept that for others the sun comes up sun goes down routine might work fine, if I'm not working towards something, however trivial it may be, and preferably outdoors, I'll go crackers. I'm resisting screen-based entertainment for the bulk of the day because I find it too passive, and I struggle to concentrate on any paragraphed text for more than half an hour. I spent my working life using computers, so they lost their novelty value some years ago, and I don't like my mobile phone. I do like learning new stuff, especially new practical skills. That's why I have a to do list - horses for courses.
