  • Benefits of Lockdown

    This is not a party political point at all just a lighter look at the benefits of being stuck at home all day- anyone is welcome to add

    1) I am saving a fortune- On my relatively meagre income which has also taken a hit of about £300 a month, I am still managing to buy all the food for the house , pay all my bills , treat myself to little things like a new office chair to work from AND pay off huge amounts of my credit cards (Well actually they are on 0% so i am saving the money and making regular payments).

    Anyone else want to add

    I suppose I should add I spend all day with the dear beloved but I am not sure that is a benefit

    Sadly lockdown is over for me, been back in the race for 3weeks. But the 6 weeks off certainly gave me time to recharge and rethink priorities, and I’m pleased to report DP’s and DCA’s remain firmly at the bottom.

      Working from home - saving £250 per month on petrol, saving on lunches, gym membership etc and of course saving £500 per month not paying creditors while I wait for CCAs.

      Not missing he 2 hours a day commuting and i'm spending loads more time with my new baby daughter; however I have not seen my older daughter for 8 weeks; but apart from that i'm loving lockdown.

              It certainly focuses the mind on what is and isn't important.
              My mother loved the War Years! Curious isn't it but it takes a crisis to make you enjoy the present moment!
              All the best to you wonderful people at AAD!!
              Looking at the Diaries you can see the differences that this site makes to people!!

                I came home today after 8 weeks away (don't tell the insurance company) to find a statement from one creditor and a change of terms and conditions from another - both long gone SB. I am not sure what Santander think they will achieve by sending me a statement every 12 months (apart from costing them money hehe)

                  Really nice you can spend time with your new daughter

                  Should you pronounce Daughter the same way you pronounce laughter

                    For me lockdown is like every other day
                    Hubby is still driving me potty, but now I can't send him to the shops for 5 min peace and quiet,
                    he said he was going to spend an Hour a day working in the garden,
                    He didn't say what day or what hour, so hasn't started yet, unless it was last week when he sat there with a drink.
