    No boredom here! Our lives are normally so fast paced so we’ve really enjoyed quality family time with our children. We do daily circuit training and Muay Thai in the garden, lots of home schooling, baking, gardening, the list goes on.

  220. Kellie Steed

    Apart from trying to work and “teach” my son most days, I’ve actually been trying to reorganise the house. I already spent soo much time at home due to being disabled and working from home anyway, so my time out of the house was precious. No time outside at all makes me a little cuckoo (we don’t have a garden) but changing the look of my home has an element of newness and change. Funnily enough my husband, bless him, trying to help out, decided to buy a new quilt for our double bed (he bought king size), so we now have a cover-less quilt as none of ours fit it. This would truly be the ideal prize lol

  221. Karen Usher

    My children help ease the boredom, they are always wanting to play games, build forts, play outside, when Im not with them Im a paramedic and at work, never a dull day in this household!
