Joining this forum.
I have had hours of entertainment just following some of the (less technical) threads, as well as being informed about all things California.
I have a mental picture of the posters; of course, I have no idea if my picture corresponds with the actuality as the only photos that I have seen are Granny Jen and Amarillo.
This is me :)

and another amazing lockdown moment .....

A proofreader has just returned my latest (and last) manuscript without half the worlds supply of red ink being pasted all over it,.

Either she has gone totally lockdown-loopy or my grammar's improved with lockdown :D

Now, time to trim my goatee .....

Well done :thumb

Just for a yardstick
Shakespeare wrote King Lear during Lockdown :D

I've only managed a few haircuts, you've trumped me.

My daughter cut mine, another 2 weeks and I reckon I could be seen without a hat.

Note for next time, make sure the plastic length gauge is securely fitted to clippers.
I understand your pain. I did most of mine myself but I asked Ben to help with the hard to reach places. They still look a notch or two shorter.

Best bit of lockdown has been sledging this week, and having a snowball fight with the kids!
Last summer we did enjoy spending a lot of time just parking the Cali at the harbour in our village, and using it as a base for the day. The boys would puddle about in rockpools or on kayaks and I could relax with a book or my knitting and a cup of tea! (we have avoided getting a tv for the van, as the whole idea was to tear the teenagers away from their screens for a bit).

It was pointed out to me this week that during Lockdown #2 leaving the home for recreation was permitted, but that is absent from the list of reasonable excuses during this lockdown

My reply was “why are park playgrounds open?”

I really don’t know if sledging or snowball fights are a reasonable excuse for leaving home, but like you, our boys have been enjoying both.

We’ve been given a pair of 50 year old sleds. They go like a bullet.

Buying and starting to learn Piano and not having to shake hands with people!

Doing the same in this lockdown.

Never thought I could learn music or play the piano and really enjoying it.

Gone for a piano like keyboard hooked up to an online teaching programme.

Some great lifetime deals.

Shop supplying were really good as they were difficult to obtain in lockdown.

Just waiting for the proper stand and in the meantime they leant me one.

I’m using Playground Sessions.
