    I've been out of the painting studio for weeks (for a variety of reasons mainly house renovations) and I'm feeling **** about it. Also, lockdown has changed my routine, so there are other things I haven't done for months that I'm fretting over, for example, Cake Friday - a thing I do with my daughter on Fridays after school. We go to a local bistro after school on Fridays where she has cake and I have wine. The staff know us and it's lovely. Not done that since March though.

    I've not been shopping just to browse, or for anything other than food and essentials. It's not that I'm a big shopper but I usually go to a local outlet with my sister every so often, and we have coffee and get some bargains.

    Me and my sisters went for a walk together a couple of weeks ago. I don't think we've ever done that before!

    I was wondering; you were on here much more frequently than when you were tied up in your garret.

    I haven't been getting oiled so that I can shout foul abuse at rugby rivals.

    I've not got together with my siblings and not visited a beach. However, I have found new walks around my local area (semi-rural) and spent more time with my children (young adults).

    Danced the night away at a function, party or club... Ah wait did you mean months, years or decades? ;)

    Playing with my windband and orchestra. No chance of rehearsals resuming any time soon.

    I'm the same, @Doitforfree. I love an occasional browse round the shops, usually with my daughter - maybe with a particular plan in mind, like a new coat, boots or outfit for a special occasion - or maybe just 'because'. We don't do it now; there's no pleasure when you have to wear a mask, and we certainly don't need a new outfit for an important social event! Really miss it, and the lunch or afternoon tea we would enjoy.
    But we do go for many more walks together now, which I'm sure is healthier for our bodies and our finances!

    Haven’t done any knitting or crochet for months. I usually do cross stitch in the summer months, but I can’t because I can’t see well enough until I get the cataracts done. If that ever happens.

    Haven’t browsed shops or bought clothes or make up online.

    Haven’t had a coffee, a snack p, a meal or a drink out and haven’t had a takeaway since January.

    Haven’t done any exercise classes and met up with those friends, but they have been online.

    We had a voucher for afternoon tea. That hasn’t happened.

    Sat with my brother and old school friend watching live Rugby on TV whilst catching up, talking c-r@-p and drinking beer.
    We used to do it at least once every couple of weeks. Not since March.

    Haven't thrown myself around at the front of a gig. I really really miss that.

    Proper teaching of my own classes in my own classroom, with real resources which I could distribute.
    Teams lessons were okay - but not the same; and our three weeks back were spent in bubbles in unfamiliar rooms

    Been out for a pub meal with friends.
    But remedying that tomorrow!

    And going to watch Chelsea play at the Bridge, of course!

    Stood in front of a class - and I know I soon will, but it won't be natural or without fear

    marked an exercise book- I never appreciated being able to stand by and actual student and actually look at their actual work

    jumped on a crowded bus

    brunch with friends

    gone to church

    seen family- still got a stack of Christmas presents in the corner of my room, undistributed.

    organised sport

    Taken my God children for a day out.
