CORONABOBS ISOLATION DAY 70 – Diary of a Self-Isolator Sunday 24th May 2020

Today us over 70s have been in lockdown for 70 days! A long, long time.

As a result it is getting more and more difficult to come up with new and random and interesting past imes. Here’s one you must have tried but there may be some different films on the list.

The best childhood movies to re-watch with your kids

For many parents, one of the great joys of raising children involves sharing experiences and traditions from their own upbringing. When it comes to movies and music, parents often hope these experiences will help mould their offspring’s taste to align with their own making for seamless movie night selections. While some movies become dated over the years, this extra time together at home, due to recommended quarantine protocols, presents the perfect opportunity to revisit family-friendly flicks from the past few decades that have stood the test of time. These are some of the best childhood movies to watch with your little ones as you shelter in place.

5 Things To Be Grateful For During Lockdown/Coronavirus

We are grateful  Lockdown gives us  a time…

  1. A time to watch your old favourite films with your children…a time to watch the latest box office sensation
  2. A time to colour in the picture without going over the lines…a time to go over the lines
  3. A time to colour everything black…a time to colour everything bright and all the colours under the rainbow
  4. A time to sing…a time to hum
  5. A time to water the garden plants and lawn with a hose pipe…a time for the pouring rain to water the garden plants and lawn
