I would say (for us) "coping" is a stretch. Its been hardly any different than our usual day to day. Alot more chilled with no running around for kids sports etc. Hubby flies home every weekend and likes to chill, take the boat out, go out for dinner/drinks so the only change there is we stay in and Uber Eats our fave places and save a bucket load on the wine markups lol. Being that its school holidays now anyway, kids are xboxing and Netflixing up a storm..... park most days for some baseball training, lots of swimming and way too much snacking LOL.

Me being an interstate truck driver, it’s business as usual for me....

I’m not one to venture out when I’m at home as I prefer to just chill out, watch movies etc with the kids....

Coping real well
The house has never been cleaner.
The laundry is finished.
The garden is being rejuvenated
The new coffee table is built
The fence material arrives tomorrow
Loving life

Stay safe and keep smiling

I'm isolating down the Great Ocean Road at our beach house with my estranged wife. We are besties. Both working from home although l need to travel back soon for few days.

Life is good. Like a ghost town. No tourists.

I work. I surf. I exercise on deserted beaches. I know I have it better than most. But l know my life will never return to the way it was.

Living on the road, between states. With work on hold, I am paused in a new town. My new neighbours welcome me and I enjoy the sense of community that emanates here.
The warmth of the sun is pure joy. I wander the large yard with my camera and examine the bugs, flora and fungi. This place is quiet and I am comfortable with that, though hearing the kids play in a neighbouring yard makes me smile. Am grateful to have access to a kitchen and bathroom- public facilities are unacessiable.

Could never have imagined squatting.

Nothing much has changed in my life as far as routine goes so I’m coping fine with that, what I find challenging is the effect it has on interpersonal relationships. The mixture of health concerns, political issues and complete uncertainty has everybody a bit on edge..it’s interesting to observe how we all respond....

My downstairs neighbour and I have adopted each other as family which helps. Today she brought me home made espresso and chocolate sprinkles. I gave her onions. Not fair I know!

My home is my sanctuary

This will sound kinda weird to some. As an introvert I'm kinda liking this self isolating trend right now, in a strange way.

Its kinda like recharging my battery and head space, when I'm home. I live in a huge house and there is always something to do or some private area space where I can go too. Once I have had that (charging), I can then reconnect when I go to work etc. So therefore I am coping OK with this whole self isolating trend. It is not new to me.

Not a huge change for a pair of introverts! The hoarders don't seem to have worked out that the local fruit and veg shop exists, so we're eating well and trying to keep the immune system strong! A few too many bottles of red, but trying to work them off in the garden and walks with the kids. Getting the winter veggies in with our youngest today, plenty of fruit trees to prune over the next while. Into the fire wood prep next week, should have done it weeks ago!

Work hasn't changed for either of us, we can't work from home and all hell hasn't broken loose yet! Kids are home with a sniffle since we don't want to stress their teachers any more than they already are.

Stay safe people!

Coping , but ..

I have a business that services a regular clientele on a monthly basis. Over the last week lm starting to recieve calls advising that due to the virus ' offices are being closed and employee's will work from home, meaning a request to temporarily suspend my service until the virus settles which could be months. This' of course is giving me " me time ' which i struggle with as over the years I've developed good customer relationships with most clients who ive serviced over many years' and who suddenly cease ?

Im confident the service will resume when things get back to normal , but in the meantime social isolation has become very very real .. So yes ' im coping ... but with much uncertainty of which way we're heading..

At first, I was not coping and felt the whole thing somewhat overwhelming but now I have settled down. I'm lucky to have friends, hearing and deaf to text, arts/ craft to do and chill out and watch TV.

I am luckier than a lot of people . My workplace closed on Monday . I am home for the duration . My husband is essential services which causes some concern about his health and my own .
Like a lot of people , the house is slowly getting tidied up , lots of phone chats with friends and family .
We feel blessed to have food , wine and each other .
On the weekends we are happily together , lots of fun to be had .
Grateful that at the moment we and those near and dear to us remain healthy . Wishing you all the same .
Be safe x

My (work) days are still essentially the same, although because my intimate other is part of a couple always together, it is illegal for us to see each other now, even for coffee. So that's something I'll miss for a while.

In the biggest cities cops are moving on people that might be just sitting alone on a park reading the paper because they're not supposed to be doing that, only allowed out for exercising or food etc.

Being in a smaller area and with a dog I do have some ability and excuse to get out as per usual, although with no markets and distance things he will not get any/many pats from others. Not sure the rules on dog parks.
