Too bad the quality hasn't gone up...

Come December / January, I wonder if the birth rate will reach a record high

If this continues for 12 months, there will be an average weight increase of 12 kg and a 12 point decline in IQ.

Good, now they can bring back Fresh of the Boat and Brooklyn Nine Nine?

Good Lord! Nothing else better to do than watch the box?

Yeah, it's a bit pathetic, innit. If I were "stuck' at home (and unable to work), there's loads of stuff that takes precedence over couch potatoing and watching third-rate telly programmes.

Get stuck in with the spring cleaning.

Sort out those old papers and receipts that need chucking.

Sow seeds for summer veggies.

Plant a few flowers.

Read those books you've been meaning to read but never had the time.

Try out one of those recipes that look so tasty but too time-consuming for an ordinary weekday dinner.

Make three different kinds of bread, and a cake or two.

Teach the dogs a few new tricks.

Hand-sew a few face masks - floral for Me, striped or denim for Him.

Then, when you're good and tired, have a nice long soak in the bath, enjoy that time-consuming meal you made, pour a glass of Something Nice, and settle down for a film/drama/video game for an hour or so before bed. Or even - really?? - have a nice conversation with your other half.

The days aren't long enough.

Television?? I hope they find something better to watch.

On the plus side, there will be a baby boom in 9 months.

Yeah, how dare people like a TV show that you don't approve of. Humanity is doomed.
