3 fun activities you can do at home or in your garden

However you may have been planning to spend summer, self-isolation was probably not on the agenda. And at times, the absence of everyday life can be really testing. But that is no reason why you cannot find a way to enjoy yourself with your loved ones from a safe distance. Here are some of the ways you can still make the day a memorable occasion.

Remote party

Birthdays are always an occasion worth celebrating. You don't need to venture outside to enjoy yourself. Thanks to technology, you can contact as many people as you want over Skype and Facebook, so you never feel alone. Another thing to consider is you don't need to worry about dressing to the nines, trading style for comfort. And there's no reason why you can't give your house a celebratory vibe. Get your hands on a helium canister, pump up some balloons and stick them around your house. Add your favourite playlist sounding through the halls and you've got yourself an indoor disco!

Barbecue dinner

Even if you can't have your friends round, summer is still the perfect time to sizzle some sausages, even if they are only for you and your housemates to enjoy. Whether you have a charcoal barbecue or a gas-powered barbecue, London Gases can make sure you have all the right appliances. In the way of coal, we offer Super Premium Charcoal – the finest quality you could possibly find, aided by Solid Firelighters. If you have a gas barbecue, we can offer Patio Gas in 5kg and 13kg.

Camping in the garden

You may not be able to venture out into the wilderness, but if you're blessed with a back garden, there's no reason you can't set up a camping site right there! Take the family outside with all kinds of goodies and, if you're in close proximity to electrical appliances, have a cabinet heater nearby so you can enjoy the combination of outdoor surroundings with indoor warmth.

While this is a difficult time for us all, it is also a chance to reconnect with old hobbies and long-abandoned pursuits we never had the time for. There is plenty of enjoyment to be found indoors and London Gases will always be on hand to add to the experience.
