    I'm In the UK so my day is nearly done but for the evening my plans are mainly cleaning based. :|

    Enjoy Harry Potter! 2 of mine have used lock down to work their way through the books and are obsessed. They watched the movies during the Christmas school holidays before and are always asking to rewatch them.

    I’m starting them with the movies before my oldest reads them. She is a pain in the butt to watch movies with after she reads them🤣

    The books are always better than the movies so this is a good way. We read the princess bride after seeing the movies and kept saying omg they missed this or that

    I agree! Books are better by far

    Hi I’m Nancy and I’m from the Peak District in the UK. Looking for some friends for accountability. At 42 I’ve just hit the perimenopause and the weight has been easy to gain and hard to get off. Feel free to add me x

    Happy Sunday all! Hope your weekend is lovely!
    Mine was fairly uneventful, but at least it was relaxing enough.
    My youngest (12) has a head full of snot, so can't send her to school tomorrow, I'll be working from home for a day or two I reckon. Schools are insanely strict now, but it's understandable of course. At least this Covid malarkey made WFH a lot easier.

    Do you have to fill out screening questionnaires to send them to school? We have an app to clear our kids on for our school. I think a snotty nose was removed from the list because the testing clinics were getting jammed with kids with runny noses.

    We dropped off come goodies I made to the mom and daughter who look after my boy. They're a nice family. I cleaned hubs' office today as well. He's a slob and has piles of work everywhere. I really want to organize and file everything

    No it's the same here, a runny nose is fine. It's just hers is so runny and it goes in in her throat which makes her cough at times. Plus her runny nose is often followed by an ear infection (= temperature) so in that case she would have to go through the testing even though you know it's nothing serious. So we'll just have to leave it clear and she should be good to go tomorrow or Wednesday.
    If the schools are even staying open that is. We're expecting an announcement today. Looks like we're going on full lockdown again, the only thing we don't know yet are the schools.

    WOW those mushrooms look insane @mtaratoot I absolutely love exotic mushrooms, but they cost a fortune here unfortunately.

    Hope your daughter is ok. Better to keep her off anyway so she can get better

    So are the schools still in? Do they have remote learning set up? Our public system is a mess. They made people choose between remote or in class. The school my son is at streams every class online so if you're sick you still can check out the remote class

    Yeah they were off from March, back in from September, but I wouldn't be surprised if they close again.
    My girls (12 & 13) are in a so-called digital school, so it's all iPad based and this worked brilliantly during the first lockdown. The classes aren't streamed as such, but they communicate and get all their work done through that medium, so she can just do her work while she's off.
    WFH suits me, working on two tenders at the moment, which is actually easier to do at home on my own.

    Best suggestion ever.

    This! Such a hard time getting out of bed today. Took the weekend away from here a bit with some family in from out of town but back to it today.
    Hope you all are starting out strong today!☕️

    Ahoy from Adelaide South Australia, 54 years young here, and after a year or so without any excersise due to medical issues, aaaaaand then Covid, I finally got my *kitten* into gear and back into the gym 6 days a week, 5 days weights, one day of cardio. 2 days of them 6 spent with a PT. He told me about MFP and it's been such a blessing. Taken all the hard work out of counting calories etc. Joined MFP approx 4 weeks ago, and have steadily lost approx 1kg per week. Snooping around the app I then discovered the Community section. Never knew it was here. Aaaaanywho, not sure what else to say. My thingy (not sure what it is called, lol) is public (So my PT can spy on what I'm eating) so if anyone wants to follow my progress then feel free to send a request, and good luck to all on your fitness journeys :)

    Congrats on the weight-loss! Keep up the good work!
