I don't know about anybody else but I'm well and truly over being in isolation and it's only just started.
I hate to think what I'm going to be like in three months time if this keeps up.
Probably the biggest thing I'm struggling with is the lack of a routine. Here is a typical day for me at the moment.
I'm up around 6.30-7.00 each morning and I'm down at the local park for a big run and a workout for more than an hour.
I'll play with my three boys down there as well and then come home and try and get some work done around the house before more stretching and weights and mucking around with the kids. And that's about it. That's the extent of my days at the moment.
The one positive is having more family time which wouldn't normally be the case at this time of the year.
That's a big one for me even though I can feel myself getting on [wife] Chloe's nerves and starting to annoy her with questions about how to do something or how to fix something or the best way to clean something.
I'm finding the weirdest part though is not having that good routine there that I'm used to. Normally, every single day is mapped out for you - where you have to be, what you have to be doing at set times.
Now, there is nothing, which is new to me and I've got to say, I don't like it one bit because I'm the type who has to be doing something all the time. I'm even thinking of actually looking for some labouring work somewhere just to keep the mind and body ticking over.
Chloe and I have spoken about me maybe trying to do a couple of days work here and there, especially if we are locked up with no pay after a couple of months.

I feel like I need to do something provided the club agrees to it. Maybe someone out there needs a hand with something. I've never been afraid of hard work so I'd put my hand up. I can guarantee they wouldn't hear any complaints from me either.
Even the home schooling I'm struggling with. Chloe is definitely the teacher when it comes to that. I'm playing more of a principal's role and handling all the discipline and dishing out the punishment when the kids are sent to me for mucking up.
I guess the other thing I'm missing most about isolation is being around my teammates. You miss the camaraderie and the mateship for sure because during the season, you see all the boys all the time.
They become almost like your extended family because you see them and are with them more than your own family during the season.
We are all keeping up with each other on WhatsApp with progress on all the training we have been asked to do and it's great to see that everyone is really hungry and wants to keep working hard.
But this whole thing is as frustrating as hell. And I'm willing to bet I'm not the only one out there feeling it.
