Staying busy at home ... 15 things to do

We are in such a difficult time right now that nobody could have ever imagined or been prepared for. 
It's been 5 weeks now since we officially entered lockdown, and at this point most of us are going out 
of our mind. I know I'm starting too. I hope everyone is healthy, well and staying safe. I'm sending 
you all my love during this time, especially if you are currently still going out to work and putting 
your life at risk for us all. Thank you!

There are so many things to do whilst we have the time, yet I know the majority of us did them in the 
first few weeks and are now left wondering what to do! I've compiled a list of 15 things to do, to stay 
busy at home, that I think are the most enjoyable and what will keep you occupied for the longest.

1.  Bake a cake or cookies
2. Read a book
3. Start a new TV series
4. Binge watch Disney+
5. Reorganise your room/house
6. Go on a walk
7. Pamper yourself 
8. Video call family
9. Write letters to friends
10. Start colouring
11. Take up scrapbooking
12. Online shop
13. Start a blog 
14. Listen to a podcast
15. Decorate

    1. Just started decorating my room, and it's taken longer than I thought! x

  3. There are probably more things to do than we realise isn't there, we just are not used to being in all the time.

    1. Yeah definitely, that's why I often write lists so when I have time spare I can tick them all off x

  4. I've been keeping busy by painting my bedroom, probably the most annoying task I could've chose as I'm painting white over a dark colour haha!

    1. That's what I've been doing. A week later and it's finally all finished. So worth it in the end though isn't it x

  5. I've done so many things on your list - I baked a delicious lemon drizzle cake but we ate it within about 4 days!

    1. That sounds delicious! I want to do more baking but it doesn't last very long in our house x
