Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
First of all please keep it clean, no need to spam here, if is possible, thank you.

I will start first, from Monday I will do home office for two weeks but I think will be longer.

In every morning I did planned to do some fitness exercises, to keep the blood flowing.
I have to work from home, 5 to 8 hours per day,

As fun I have already a billiard table, darts, backgammon or cards, a PS4 and many tv serials to watch.

I cant stay indoors for 15 days.

I am normally out about 5 hours per day but tend not to interact much at the moment. Everyone I know is self isolating so any interactions I have are mainly with other dog people but we still keep some distance between us.

Food is still tough to buy. I eat a lot of fresh veggies so its not as if I can order enough to keep for a few weeks but finding that I have had to stock up on foods I don't ever eat. Junk food frozen pizzas and even pasta. 🤮 . So in my case I do visit the local grocery every 2nd /3rd day, I did buy some frozen veggies but find them rather disgusting so they are just for soups.


Other than that, we have Netflix, Prime Amazon and Apple TV for 3 different Networks and a basic alt tv package of news stations and a few add ons I just upgraded while the partner is home daily.


Honestly, I cant find enough time to get to everything I need to do so light form of entertainment is this forum or very basic internet browsing.
Just don't have the time as of late.


In short, not much here has changed but with a pup and fresh veggies a must in my household, I personally wont be locked in daily but safely outside when I choose to be.

Will be hard but we have to adapt and improvise.
Is not going to be easy but is douable.

I eat to live, I don't live to eat,
for me the food is not that important, I have to improvise and be careful.

but who got only an apartment is hard to stay there whole day long.

If we get 3 months then why bother anymore?

I know, the plan is to slow down the spread, otherwise the medical system will be dead and burried in two weeks.

Troepfler - what is your plan for 'home quarantine'?

I just keep cool, this is not a war, (max 3% will die?)
But a lot of people will run in money problems,
time to ask your goverment about social security.

Life hasn't changed here other than I have the partner home now. Between he and the pup, my home looks as if a tornado went through it.
I have given up trying to keep it as I like it....now I just focus more on sanitizing it.

Keyboards, doors, etc; a few times daily.

Only real problem is that with both of us home now every day, I wont have the ability to leave he pup alone for 1-2 hours daily, trying to get him ready for spring bike rides when I or both of us will be gone 3 hours daily.
I was just starting to do that when this hit.

Life is very simple here at the moment. Food, Banking, Puppy Patrol, another phone line. There isn't anything else to do for everything is closed otherwise! 😛



I noticed today that none of the people sitting outside various stores asking for money are around.
It occurred to me that several, if not most of them deal with various drug addictions.
They must be in hell at the moment. 🥺

I've seen supermarket footage of 3 women go full gladiator mode over toilet paper. Ask yourself if you're not in a war zone again once the plebs start running out of money and the Anglo begins to hate.
