Sydney is in the throws of its biggest lockdown since COVID started. I live in one of the most affected suburbs, with extra strict rules about where we can go and what we can do. So what have I been doing. And what has been keeping me sane?
Well work carries on. I’ve even had a few teaching days. But the main thing is that I’ve been getting as much two wheels as I can…
On my bike to work…
On my commuter bike (to the shops and around the way)…
I even broke out the mountain bike. I took it to work one day and tried the trails around there. It was epically terrible, I have not ridden MTB on any trails for probably 6 years and it showed…. I will have to go back again.
D&D has also helped, with all my regular games running and a new crawl filling in for a face to face that one of the other DMs has started.
Family wise, we’ve tried to have a cheat meal once a week of ordering something in. Mostly its been nice, but unsurprisingly, the times we’ve gone to “fast food chains” they’ve been rubbish.
And we’ve built up our home gym some as well.
I also slept in my tent in the backyard one night. With the most recent extension, I don’t expect to get out for a trip this year, maybe just before Christmas? It will likely just be in NSW too.
I hope you are all staying safe as well.
