  1. Happy birthday @Chris sorry it's late
  2. We are 6 weeks into lock down now, just thought I would pop on to see how everyone is doing and if you found anything new to do. I'm doing pretty well (slightly tipsy while writing this) but I get bored here and there but I am coping. I've have started going for walks with my brother while playing Pokemon Go (don't worry we aren't stopping to do any gyms, we are still abiding the 2 metre rule). Baked some different things (made apple crumble today and started making brownies as well, as I do struggle to find nut free ones). Making corn beef and potato pie one day this week as well. It's just nice to see supermarkets looking like they were before hand, a part from the flour.
  3. They are all on my mums side, as it's the only side I talk to. My grandad and uncle are Chesterfield fans Two of my cousins support Derby One cousin supports Manchester United and her brother supports Man City.
  4. No particular order 1. Bring me the horizon- That's the spirit 2. Six (a musical about Henry VIII six wives) 3. Linkin Park- hybrid theory 4. Halsey- badlands 5. Anything Disney Not going to lie this was hard.
  5. @liampie came up with a wonderful suggestion, in the weekly round up, which was to see if all of us on PON had any common interests, apart from Notts. Also if there is any new interests while we have been stuck in our houses all day. My interests have not changed much while I have been in the house for nearly 4 weeks now. I have been baking a lot more now I have not got much to do. So far, I have made scones, cakes (one of them being coffee), brownies, pizza rolls with my brother, jam tarts and some cinnamon sugar crisp things. I have done a couple of girly things like trying out new hairstyles and painting my nails. One thing I have taken a keen interest in is art. I did take it it for GCSE but sadly failed it, I really lost interest in it because it was taking over my whole GCSE experience and I did not like my teacher (I am sure @ARLukomski will understand). But now because I have the time again I have been doing it. This is cheating but I brought a Harry Potter colouring book and some crayons, as I do find it therapeutic and it relaxes me, especially if I am having a down day. Before the lock down got put into place I managed to finish my Harry Potter book collection, so I am going to try and get my way through those, as I do like reading, especially when I am struggling to fall asleep. Been streaming a lot more films and TV shows on Disney+ plus, just fancy reliving my childhood. I have been watching a lot more YouTube and catching up on videos that I missed while I was working. I've hardly been on Amazon prime or Netflix, normally this are the top two streaming sites that I am on. How have you interests changed, if at all?
  6. Not watching much tv apart from Gogglebox and friday night dinner. I'm mainly watching Disney+ or YouTube.
  7. We are finally in April, another month closer to the end of the year and DECHOX finally ended (raised £90 this year, highest amount I've raised in the 5 years of doing). Not really much I can report on this week apart from being inside all day every day. I have been to the shop but it's been to get my grandparents some shopping. I finally caved into getting tik tok made two (that's even worse). Just been baking and eating really. How has your week in isolation been?
  8. There is a couple of things that I would have changed in my past, even though you just asked for one. One of them would be that I wish I spoke to my nanna more before she passed away. We all had a massive argument with my dads side and now we dont talk to that side of family anymore, we dont even make eye contact if we see each other in the shops. Another thing would be as soppy as it sounds, I wish I said yes to going out with @ARLukomski earlier than I did, even though I had a thing for him since we were 12 (sorry to embarrass you Dec).
  9. I have to admit these weekly round ups are going to be harder and harder to write each week, not much to write about when I'm stuck inside 24/7.
  10. Well... Its definitely been an interesting week, probably has been for all of us. Worked monday night for 3 hours, little did I know it was the last time for maybe 3 months. Done quite a lot of things this week. I've baked, watched a lot of things on Disney+ and YouTube. Spoke to @ARLukomski a lot due to not being able to see each other. I've even painted, not done that since school. How has you're week been?
  11. Yeh, I'm finding it difficult. Saturdays would be where my family, my cousins, aunties and uncles would all go and spend time with my grandparents. Unfortunately, my grandad have underlined health conditions. I luckily saw them a couple of times last week before we got put on 'lockdown'.
  12. I posted this yesterday morning, I am doing alright, cried a couple of times, not over the virus but some other things, its finally kicking in. I want to try and encourage people to come back to this topic and write updates. But it's down to the individual. Not every day but whenever you want to.
  13. @liampie I've not worked since monday evening and cant wait to go back, we have a group chat for work, and we are all still talking to each other on that, which is really helping. I'm reading the harry potter books at the moment.
  14. I know there is a weekly round up that I try to do every sunday, but I thought I'd do a separate topic on just to see how everyone is doing at the moment. I know people who have trouble with mental health could be finding this time very difficult. I'm doing well at the moment, I am keeping myself busy by baking, cooking some what decent meals, listening to music, writing and watching things (youtube, netflix and disney+). Found a fun thing to do but it's so sad. I watch people out of the window and count how many times they've been out. If anyone is struggling and wants a chat, I am always here, my handles for my social medias are in my profile. How are you doing and what are you doing to keep busy?
  15. @cheeky~k8 People do need to listen, I got things book in for summer, and been saving for them, it's a lot of money as well. Tbh I've been off 2 days, I've hardly eaten because I am distracting my mind with other things
  16. @cheeky~k8 my routine has been be knocked right off. Was meant to be working today and I looked at the time and panicked that I was going to be late. My brother has been off for a while, he has homework that he has got to do and it's quite hefty. I can't remember where I read it but it might only take 2 months so that would be the middle of june when it could be gone, just in time for summer. If people listen.
  17. @CliftonMagpie It would, thing is I understand supermarkets, pharmacies and other essential places to open. My mum works in argos, but they are still open, only for deliveries. But they are on about transferring her to sainsburys. It has, just stay in. My dad is self employed and he don't know what he's supposed to do. If we all stayed in, then we can all have a summer, at this rate we won't be getting one
  18. I'd say do whatever you feel is right for you. I'm the same, I want to be working (I can't, I did my last shift today), but can't risk getting the virus.
  19. Its been a very boring week. I've been grabbing hours at work while we are still open. My theory test got cancelled, which I understand, while all of this stuff is going off. Which I am gutted about because I wanted this year to be the year I want to drive. Spent time with @ARLukomski yesterday and this morning. We had a dominoes last night, the cinni dippers are so nice, would definitely reccomend them. Hope everyone is keeping well and safe. Thank you to any NHS workers, shop staff and lorry drivers that are reading this and keeping the country running. How has your week been?
  20. Bournemouth hands down. Only been abroad once and that was Cyprus. Don't get me wrong its beautiful, but dont do well with high temperatures. Hopefully going to skegness in July, but will depend on this virus. Gutted because I was hoping to go to Italy.
  21. It would be easier to close schools and do all the work online.
  22. I still live at home still and we can go through a 6 pint bottle of milk in 2 days, always at the shop buying another bottle. I understand pasta because it is versatile but I'm shocked about milk.
  23. Again, nothing has happened again this week, just been at work and doing extra hours. Spent Wednesday and Thursday with @ARLukomski, had a takeaway and just watched tv while enjoying each others company. Booked my 3rd theory test in on Friday, hopefully on the 8th April I will pass it, so I can crack on with my practical test, hopefully I will pass for July. Half way through DECHOX, haven't caved in yet, not long left and then I can have as many bounty's as I like. How had your week been?
