With the 5pm closures of restaurants, bars and shops (and more!) extended, we've rounded up 5 ideas of fun things you day by yourself or with friends in the evening.
Make cocktails (or mocktails!)
If you can't go to a bar, then bring the bar to you. Cocktails and mocktails are a fun skill to learn and there are so many different variations to try, so you're bound to find something you and your friends or family will love. Check out these classic cocktail recipes here, or why not try your hand at making some fun mocktails.
If you love being creative, then why not get arty? This Is Artify offers online abstract painting courses at an affordable price, while Sculpd sell clay moulding kits so you can make objects like a vase or candle. Sounds, fun right?
Start a book club
Love reading? Why not start your own club with avid bookworms that you know? Read a book and then meet to discuss - simple! Good Reads is a great place where you can find new tales to dive into. You can also set up a profile to log the books you have read and rate them, so you can keep track.
Don't want to venture out for a wet and windy walk in a park after 5pm? We get that. Why not try some yoga in the comfort of your own home? Yoga With Adriene has a huge selection of different flows, from Detox and Reset to Yoga for a Flexible Mind and Body.
Run a bath
There is nothing like a steamy bath to pass the time. Grab a good book or listen to your favourite podcast or playlist. Create a spa-like ambience with French Girl Organics Mint Sea Soak Enlivening Bath Salts and a Sana Jardin Candle.
