I'd be more tempted to learn how to play a musical instrument.

I could see that being grounds for divorce if some couples have no escape from each other!   ;D

Apparently they are now expecting a huge spike in divorces.   :facepalm:

Electronic pianos have headphone jacks.  I know how useful they are from personal experience!  That said, His Lordship is getting much better at Cannonball's Passion.

My piano lessons have been cancelled.  :bawl:

However, the teacher is prepared to teach her pupils at home using video conferencing.  She uses something called Zoom.  I've never video conferenced before so this should be quite an experience!

That does not surprise me Gill. After the latest edicts our town has become a ghost town.  Pubs, bars, restaurants, cafes, gyms and funfair closed.  I once took Sam to the Jaipur Indian restaurant in the town and he has seen the funfair in action.   :)x  I hope the restaurants open up again but I would not be sorry to see the funfair demolished.
