    So the Welsh and the Scotch kids will be off school from Friday. Sounds like a similar announcement will follow for England.

    Seems sensible to me: it's daft to ban adult social activity but at the same time force kids, who are world-class at germ swapping, to congregate in their hundreds every day.

    I know there's a few with youngish kids on here. Who's looking forward to being a teacher for the next couple of months?

    I'm quite fortunate I suppose, as I work from home in any case and I expect the clients of my little recruitment business to go pretty quiet for a bit. My wife's also working from home for the foreseeable and she works for "big pharma" so definitely won't be taking it easy but will keep us ticking over.

    Perhaps we could use this thread to share tips or chart our increasing desperation as the lockdown continues :hehe:

    They're going to be off for 4 week minimium... Nicola Sturgeon suggested Scottish kids wouldn't be going back til after the summer. Shame about the travel ban, we'd be able to get some cheap holidays in!

    Give yourself a Pac man break in between study/revising.

    I just realised that what I have been calling a normal day, everyone else calls it, 'quarantine'

    My Wife is a head in a primary school. This news was originally heart breaking. Being retired, the thought of having her home for what could potentially be longer than the summer holidays brought me out in a cold sweat. Luckily being top dog, she still has to go in to babysit the kids of the key workers. Fucking result!

    Friday it is then!

    And for all the good intentions of the next however-many weeks being a feast of educational bonding, I have already been screamed at by my 8 year-old daughter (who can be a bit difficult at times, it has to be said), because she's decided to make an invitation for her birthday party (in October) using my Mac and Powerpoint.

    I am going to be a raging alcoholic by June.

    The kids both had slight high temperatures this morning so, erring on the side of caution, they've started their home school a day early. (touch wood they seem absolutely fine otherwise)

    Here is Day 1 progress so far: -

    Daughter has watched about 4 episodes of Horrible Histories though has at least done the one small bit of work already set via her "google classroom".
    Son has played Brawl Stars on his phone most of the morning, pausing only to spend time kicking a bog roll into a bin for his "top bins challenge" (see Twitter for info!)

    All this was made possible by me blocking Youtube on our main telly, otherwise they'd be into their 4th hour of watching absolute bollocks stuff about other people playing video games.

    I also ordered a table tennis table earlier in the week, thinking that could be our PE in the garden. Hermes delivery due at 12.00. The teasing fuckers brought the bats and balls but no table.

    Next week I will be far better prepared, obvs :coat:

    3 days in...

    School have been quality to be fair, they use Google Classroom to set work for the day, to send & receive messages for the kids etc. My son's year even has a video conference via Google Hangouts for the whole class to set up the day, or finish it off. They had a spelling test by video call this afternoon.

    I watched my son playing the fool with his mates and was tempted to tell him to rein it in a bit, before I realised that that was basically me 30-odd years ago.

    Even did the Joe Wicks workout with them this morning, which I sense is going to bloody hurt tomorrow.

    The new table tennis table is helping, and I'm sure this will be a whole lot more difficult when the weather is shit.

    How's everyone else getting on?
