Kitchen cupboards first for me, clear and tidy the ‘gadgets’ and freezer tubs (aka old ice cream/take away containers).  Got one bit of ceiling needs painting as the upstairs flat had a flood and some dropped through, but no stores selling paint are open around here

Just a heads up.  You will need to do a first coat with an enamel else the moisture stains will just break through the new layer in a few weeks.

Lol and here i am thinking i'm the only one thats trying to keep myself busy this next 21 days in order to not go crazy.

I unfortunately don't have too many chores to do so 21 days is going to be too long. I had the brainfart of maybe acquiring a few old speakers or amps that i could work on during this time but the idea came only 2 days before D-day so there was no time to get anything.....i have a feeling these 21 days are going to feel like a 60 day January :sd:

- Mount Wireless AP in the ceiling (fibre moved to the garage)
- Re-organise study/music room
- Evaluate/Setup online music streamer( not sure which one, youtube music ,Spotify , tidal )
- Install outside blinds on 2 windows

Eish, looking at this list, I think I have to much to do  :facepalm:

We have a fairly large and 75 year old house and a big garden.  I sent the wife out first thing to sort out the garden

Yesterday, Stodels had a 50% and 75% off sale and she filled the car with yet more plants

I've been working from home for more than 10 years now, nothing new from that point of view.

It will be somewhat tougher for the rest of the family (no school, netball, golf, visits to friends, etc). Not to mention the dog...

Unfortunately, my client payments were not quite in sync with the start of the lockdown, and we could not get anything from hardware stores or nurseries in time. I also suspect that our wine and beer supply will run out...

I found my cheese knife! Back of the cooking and cutting implements draw under a pile of unused takeaway chopsticks (can bamboo be used for a braai? I have about half a draws worth of bamboo chopsticks!) and that’s after doing some work work!

Only 1 day in and you already hacked your neighbour's wifi. And you were worried about relying on work wifi.  :point: :point: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
