    Hello folks! We're trying to put a positive spin on things, which seems a little more difficult at the moment, but we'll push through :p

    The weather here has been cold and wet which has meant I haven't been able to get out for runs, but I have started doing at home workouts, which I'm really enjoying!

    I have a lot of assessments due at the moment, but it keeps me busy and I know that once they're all done I'll be one step closer to finishing my studies!

    I can't get out and see friends but right now I'm having more phone calls with people than I normally would so I feel a lot more connected with the people closest to me than I normally would!

    I'd really like to hear from everyone else today! I think this is a time for some nice positive outlooks.

    Well done on staying physical, iv got an eliptical trainer I get on most nights unless I do other exercise. I was weight training until but months ago, but that's on ice.

    My Suburb is in lockdown, I can't leave my local government area. My partner is doing all the home schooling and I'm doing stuff I been meaning to do. But we do love walking to the local sports field and kicking a ball around. I praise and thank God for the peace we have in our home (most of the time)

    Hey all

    Yesterday was windy and horrible outside, so decided to catch up on housework, particularly the laundry, the more chores I did, the more motivation I had to do more, I ended up doing a lot more than originally planned.

    hello everyone! With this slightly overcast weekend we're having here lets try and reset our mindsets a little bit!

    The overcast whether (and lock down) are keeping me inside at the moment, but I have a lot of half finished projects around the house that I need to sort out! So now I have some time to do those which is nice haha

    Fortunate enough to be near some national Park, so got up early this morning and went for a bush walk with the family. Took a wrong turn on the way in haha, was dragging the kids thru thick hilly terrain. Anyways we got out alive, a bit of an adventure.

    @Damaged_Armour That sounds really fun! Some off road walking always adds a bit of adventure to the day haha and really if you all got out unscathed that's the main thing. :p

    Hi everyone! I hope the weekend is off to a great start for everyone!

    It's been very wet and windy the past few days, but it's meant that I've been able to spend sometime doing odd jobs around the house that needed to be done, which is a relief! I've also had time to start a new book which has been really great!

    How about everyone else?
