Trending on Twatter.

So what would you do on first day after isolation ended?

I would go straight to the barbers to get much needed haircut then massive full English breakfast in greasy spoon.

Stockpile DVDs and boxsets as I am already missing my obsession watching the films.

Then afternoon and evening bender at my local.. catching up with mates.

How about you?

I'm hoping by the end of isolation that I'm up to 100 wpm at shorthand and have revised enough to pass a spate of exams first time. I'm finally around the 80 mark, only took six months.

See family and then go get pissed in the local with friends Ive not seen. As I dont drink at home, I will be out of practice and probably be home after 4 pints.

This weekend is going to be bizarre - the 1st under lockdown. Ive even suggested to the wife that we clean the garage out just for something to do.

I'll happily drink ouzo if nothing else is on offer (though only with fish, not meat)

In certain parts of Greece they serve tsipouro exclusively with aniseed flavouring, and drinking that with my wild boar stifado seemed like heresy.

I think this could change things for a lot of companies. We have a big office at present but with the use of technology we use, a fair wedge of people can operate easily from home, thus not needing an office desk, so it wouldn't surprise me that we moved to a much smaller and cheaper office, this would mean we can get a dog! On a personal level it would be nice to see my work mates again and have the OH home more often, nieces birthday over Easter and a visit home was planned , so get down there asap

Football is a team game, it’s dynamic, fluid, it’s about relative movement and angles and with freedom to run and to create.

Golf (to a beginner) seems to be about a restrictive, repetitive set of movements to achieve a singular, linear task.

I know I’m wrong about this, just to me it seems like being placed into a straitjacket vs flying

Yeah ok.

So there's a sport that is literally impossible to master, just continuously learn and improve, learn and improve, whilst also being extremely good for you. Plus you get the added competition against others/yourself/the course.

Still nothing?

Impossible to master? Pah. The ball doesn’t move, the hole doesn’t move and you get a whole load of different bats to hit it with. How difficult can it be?

But seriously, lots of things are difficult to master and reward practice... my wife loves sewing for instance but it bores me to tears. I don’t enjoy the methodical learn/improve process. I’m crap at languages and worse at music.

As GC says below, I’m also really crap at it. I have had a couple of moments when I’ve hit a great shot and made that ‘ping’ noise that you are supposed to get. And it’s given me a modicum of satisfaction. But it’s no more that a lazy semi when compared to the diamond cutting boner that a reverse pass in football gives me, or a curled shot into the top corner.

I’m terrible at golf. I know I’m meant to swing back further but I’m always hesitant as I’m certain I’ll either hit the top of the ball or take a clump of turf out. My mates often regularly question my posture and how I’m holding the club. Sometimes I’ll hit a ball perfectly and watch it sail straight into the distance (well, about 50 yards) but often it’s just a total slice. Then I have to hit from the fairway which is usually a disaster...

My putting isn’t too bad. I only play about four times a year so I won’t improve any time soon.

Nah, I still play football (although curling one into the top corner is rarer these days) Bit of tennis (which is a bit of a dull game to play and an awful game to watch).

I have very few hobbies it’s true.

I get out on a course sufficiently rarely that when I do play, I'm generally not very good, but you only need a few decent holes to keep you coming back. My hope is that my daughter gets into it so family holidays become golf holidays.

Can’t see isolation ending in one stage.
First let us wander about more and visit other houses.
Then shops
Then sports
And pubs only when they are really sure it’s under control, unless someone has a way of phasing it that doesn’t involve a monster drinking and infection rampage.

Yep think you right. First up will be get everybody back to work and all shops opening for shorter hours (pretty much like it used to be). Probably then smaller daytime outdoor events will be allowed. After that there pubs and restaurants opening, but restricted hours. Then larger outdoor events and finally large indoor events. How long this is all going to take God only knows.
