What is the best thing you’ve discovered in lockdown? Be it a new skill, a new TV series or film you wouldn’t have tried, or something you’ve found at home/upcycled.

    Mine is a new TV series (Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back) and doing portraits in chalk pastel.

    I can't say just one best thing - One is the pub quizzes on youtube, another is a Ch4 programme called Damages, I've loved the many different memes doing the rounds, I've found a new place to walk to, and having my ideas re-inforced of just how nice people generally are ;)

    Quality time with my wife.
    Peace, quiet and more relaxed pace.
    So much to do without driving.

    A network of footpaths where I live. Been there 20 years and never knew they existed.

    Ooh, cool. I’ve discovered a mini forest (emphasis on mini) near my house.

    Working from home. Well, I have worked from home before but not for this long of course. Not having to pointlessly schlepp to and from the office when my work is on my laptop in my living room. I truly dread going back. I hope and pray offices will become a thing of the past.

    I was furloughed for six weeks.After ten days I grew to love it! I got all those jobs done at a steady pace,spent proper time with my wife,and realised there is more to life than work.So much so,I am actively seeking a new job to fit in with ME.

    I've enjoyed spending time doing things that I never had time for in the past... cooking, exercise are two that spring to mind.

    Off topic, sorry everyone- for most people work is just something we do to keep ourselves housed, fed and entertained. I've yet in my almost 50 years on this planet to meet someone who actually likes let alone loves what they do for work. Like I said, I hope and pray I never have to go back to the office and feel about ten thousand times better all in all, mentally and physically, working from home..

    I have discovered that not rushing around constantly is so much better for my health. 
    Working from home is a huge part of that, no 4hrs travelling a day, more time seeing my babies too.
