    Hello Chloe......As always good to hear from you. I hope you and your family are well and keeping safe. Lockdown hasn't been too bad.  I work full time which sometimes isn't easy and can be a struggle.   Luckily enough my employers are good and the team I work with are very helpful and understanding.  As hard as it has been at times work has given me something to focus on.  It is that focus, any focus I think really helps people when they need it most .... I hope you and everyone else here remains safe and sound..... AndyGT

    Hi there Andy, nice to hear from you and that you are doing as well as can be.

    Work is a good distraction that's why I come on here most days gives me something to do to relieve the boredom.

    Take care and keep safe

    Work is a distraction at this time, but everyone has such a distraction whether it is work or something else. Sometimes you need a distrs6from that as well.  With me for instance I Iove History,  writing, comedy and sport. Any of that can be a distraction and relaxing. Except maybe if Harlequins are playing. When it is anything but relaxing.

    Bored need someone to talk to about things 
  • AndyGTAndyGT Member Posts: 129 Pioneering
    Ok what do you want to talk about?  "Life, The Universe and Everything'
    .....
    What have you been been up to during Lockdown ? I have been working througout .  It has made the time go quickly but has caused its kown problems.  I also now find it difficult to walk up the stairs etc
      I know it could be worse  but that doesn't help much. What I am glad about is the return of sport. It will be even better when Rugby returns.  What do you want to talk about.  Boredom can be terrible thing..

    Nice to meet you @AndyGT  I see your avatar is a police car. Were you in the police or just fond of what they do?

    I use to be a serving police officer until I damaged my back in an urgent assistance call.

    Thats cool about being a police officer, what did you do in the police? I have a family member who was a police officer (detective). :)

    66Mustang...... My main role was a response driver, though I was also shield trained as I was auto crimes.   I did spend sometime on a Burglary squad and also as a 'Street Duties Instructor'... I absolutely loved it and had never wanted to do anything else.....

    🍫Mmmmmmmmmmmm Lovely.  What is your favourite.  Mine is I love a Picnic.  Though  there is an American one called Pay Day  that comes a close second.
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 771 Pioneering
    I've taught myself not to like chocolate too much :open_mouth:

    I always found I can't eat a sensible amount, if I start eating it I have to eat lots of it, so better to not have any at all. :| The same logic that teetotal alcoholics use I guess :D

    serenity2... I must admit I have really missed the Sport.  Especially the Rugby🏉👍.  Though I watch football as well as long as they don't clash. What is your team? I use to love hiking and camping etc but alas not for some time now.  I know having a coffee at home is cheaper, but meeting a friend in a coffee shop is much more fun. I love a drop of caramel syrin mine......  Oh well I hope you get to do the things you love soon.  Take care.

    Hi @AndyGT

    i support Liverpool FC 😁👍
    and yes sport is a great distraction at times...it helps a lot.
    sorry you’ve not been able to hike or camp for some time ...my trips are usually on a train to the next village or maybe somewhere new to try out a coffee shop ..so not greatly adventurous but nice all the same ..
    I don’t watch rugby , mostly because I don’t really understand it , but whatever we enjoy is good for us in my opinion...no matter how small..

    take it easy ..great to chat !  :)

    serenity2 ... I too am a Liverpool⚽️🏆fan and have been since the 70s.  As a young man I had 2 gold fish named Kevin (Keegan) and John (Toshack). I have never been great at Football, no better than the school second 11. So I have always erred towards Rugby  because I had the build and shape. I have tried most sports with some degrees of success better than others.  Do you do any sport?  Going anywhere new is an adventure and there are some lovely villages and places to visit. So enjoy your coffee wherever that may be. Take care and good to talk.
