A day in the life of lockdown in the UK

It’s been around 2 months since the start of lockdown in the UK which is still ongoing. Shops, restaurants, cinemas and schools/universities remain closed meaning that we spend the majority of our time at home. Despite what is currently happening, we try to keep ourselves busy. Here’s our typical day during the lock down period.

Our sleeping schedule got messed up during the lockdown meaning that we end up waking up quite late (11am-12pm). Depending on my mood I will either make an effort to get dressed or stay in my pyjamas. For the sake of the blog I decided to get dressed and even wear one of my favourite pair of earrings (which I bought from Lovisa). After I’m changed I like to play a bit of Mobile Legends on my phone before doing some of my uni work. Dave usually goes straight to his laptop when he wakes up and will stay glued to his chair for around 3-4 hours playing CS and GTA V.

At around 4pm we were feeling rather peckish. After opening the fridge and realising we had nothing to eat, it was time to make a quick trip to Tesco. As you can tell Dave gets overly excited when grocery shopping and we usually end up spending about an hour in store. We also have to follow the arrows around the store now so it does take slightly longer to get to the aisles we want to.

Once we reached home Dave cooked chicken rice (a Malaysian dish) with soup for dinner. It’s pretty rare to see the sun in the UK so we made full use of it by eating out on the balcony.

In the evening I like to edit and work on the blog while Dave gets back to his gaming. After I’m done with my editing I end my day by binge watching some Netflix (currently into Better Call Saul). If you have any recommendations for good Netflix shows, let me know!
