I am now told that I cannot leave my house for 12 weeks.

I literally cannot go into the garden let alone go for a walk. To be honest I am so worried about catching Covid 19. Every chest pain I get I think is this it, I have a mild sore throat, is this it. I'm lucky, I have my wife for companionship but we are sleeping in separate rooms, sitting at the opposite side of the lounge, why am I lucky....because I'm not on my own. Please spare a thought for the older people living on their own.

I did some exercise with my son today via a WhatsApp link and warmed up Joe Wicks. Taking time to move and keep fit will be key for me, static bike tomorrow.
Stay healthy people and please be kind, it costs nothing to have a kind thought!!
