Put up a wee cheap poly tunnel and grow your own fruit and veg. It might come in handy when food rationing is introduced.

Dig up the garden and get the spuds in!
Did that last year and all I got was marble spuds. I had more success growing beetroot and Parsley.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Strength and conditioning.

Get a home routine going. Press ups, lunges squats etc etc.

Stretching as well. Get as flexible as you can.

I am going to get the bike out as well hopefully and keep at the running.

Stay to feck off social media and some threads on here as they are not good for the mental health.

We could definitely do with a positive news thread on this alright.

I wish I had time to be bored!

If you're into reading, a novel is a good way to take you out of this world and immerse you in something else.

If you're into board games, there are virtual versions where you can play against other people online, like Chess or Words with Friends.

If you're into learning, there's no end to what you can learn online through the likes of Coursera or Udemy. I love The Great Courses, they have academics with real credentials teaching their stuff. I did one of their courses in linguistics and the history of languages once when I had time on my hands. It was a fascinating topic and it killed plenty of time.

I also set myself the task of getting the Lurgan wikipedia page up to the status of Good Article by adding all the necessary information complete with citations. That was an interesting little project, and surprisingly satisfying in the end.

Keep a few chickens. Fresh eggs in the morning, and they donít need walking everyday.

The deeds on my house specifically do not allow me to keep chickens. I've no idea why.
Cover me in chocolate and feed me to the lesbians

There seems to be a section missing.

Chitting a few spuds at the moment for planting this weekend, it's my first time growing them so hopefully it'll go okay

You could relieve the boredom by finding out why 😀
