In these times of Lockdown due to Covid19 we are all doing those jobs around the house that we have put off for years, clearing out the cupboards, organising the bookshelves and culling the books. Cooking, reading, bingeing on our favorite series but what happens when those activities are all done? Monopoly – you can play so many games. The single ingredient that will get you through this lockdown apart from your family is motivation.
