Lockdown Day #1


I don’t really know if this counts as day one or if it’s day negative two? Does it start from when my furlough starts on Monday or is it today? Does it matter? No. The answer is no.

So this is the second week where I’ve got an agenda free, planless Saturday. I had a bit of a lie in despite still waking up fairly early and then got my work out done and had a relaxing soak in the bath.


Since then I’ve not done a whole lot of exciting stuff worth writing about. I didn’t want to get started on my list of things to do while off, that’s for when I would normally be at work. This is my weekend, I would usually spend it relaxing so that’s what I’m doing. Most interesting thing I’ve done today a a second weight set outside because it’s so nice out and cut the sleeves off the t shirt I’m wearing because I only have a couple of tanks and if this nice weather keeps up I’m going to want more. Recycling old shirts I only wear around the house anyway just seems like a sensible thing to do.

I must say I’m quite enjoying my self imposed ‘underwear is optional’ rule over put in place since lockdown began.... twenty four hours ago. I instinctively put on some boxers when I got out the bath earlier only to think to myself, ‘why?!’ I promptly took them off (saving on laundry) pulled on the pyjama shorts I bought the other day and went about my day. I can see it being a case of only bothering with underwear if I need to leave the house and for when I work out on the bike, and I’m perfectly okay with that!

Was that too much information? Well get used to it! Remember how weird and nonsensical a lot of my posts were when I was off sick for three weeks? Imagine what I’m going to be like while I’m not working for two months!
