We are going to have more time on our hands as the world enters lockdown. This is an opportunity to get shit done.

What are you planning to do?

My first objective is to read more (for leisure) so hope to write a review or two in the Donstalk Book thread.

If you articulate and write down your goals, that alone gives an incentive to do it.

I would be reading but the library shut before I got a chance to stock up.
However my job has been deemed “essential” so I’ll be working at least some of the time.

I put up a small shed out my back garden yesterday.

We have had a fair bit of welcome rain the past few months, so the walkways and concrete around my garden need to be washed down with the power washer.

I also like to restore old wooden furniture and have a silky oak chair that I want to work on.

I saw this before. Not sure if any good, but worth a look?
