A new Top Five Tuesday, the prompts are created by Bionic Book Worm. I’m really glad that Shanah is still thinking up topics for us all because they’re a really nice distraction from the chaos. This week is focused on things we’re enjoying while in isolation, this is such a weird time so it’s good to try to concentrate on the positive things!
Of course, I usually spend lots of time reading when I’m at home so I’ve continued that tradition! I’m currently at the end of A Feast for Crows. It is tearing my heart out, but that’s all part of the fun with A Song of Ice and Fire! Next I have The Virgin’s War which is the last of Laura Andersen’s alternative tudor novels.
2. Daily exercise routines with my sister
My sister Olivia usually goes to the gym every few days and was going mad stuck inside so she was doing different routines everyday. Me and my brother wanted to join her and I’m so glad we did because it has really kept me sane. I would get really lethergic if I didn’t have something active to do. It’s also nice to spend more time together.
3. Drawing and colouring
I love doing creative things and I’ve had lots more time to do some more drawing. I also love my coulouring books, they’re so calming, I really like doing them while listening to audiobooks.
4. Watching films with my family via facetime
It can be difficult to all get our film in sync but it is really fun when we do! My Dad and other sister don’t live with me so it’s been really nice to catch up with them and watch a film together.
5. Listening to music non-stop
I love music, I cannot sit in silence and because I’ve been at home I have barely stopped listening to some of my favourties. I’ve also got a playlist of all new music that I have discovered over the past couple of weeks, it’s great.
I hope you are all getting on okay, let me know in the comments some of your favourite things to keep you sane in isolation.
