One of P's friends has just messaged him to say that he has been put into self quarantine for the next 14 days as he has developed a cough. Up until now he has been able to go to work as he is a key worker.
He now has to remain in his bedroom and keep separate from his wife and son who live in the same house with him.
His wife has had to move into the spare room so that he can have their bedroom with an en-suite. I presume his meals are left outside his door for him to collect.
I cannot imagine how that must feel, unable to leave your bedroom for two weeks.
P is already going stir crazy here, only allowed out once a day (alone) for short periods of exercise and once a week to shop for essentials. He is up to date with all his gardening jobs and is scratching around trying to find things to do that interest him. It doesn't help that he now has a very painful backache after too much digging in the veg plot all week.
I try to suggest various things to try but he is not interested. He is an outdoors person and is itching to get out and about, especially as the sun is shining and the weather has improved.
I shall have to try to come up with some sort of project to keep him occupied.
Any (sensible) suggestions?
