My routine

It’s hard to know what to write when nothing much changes. Even on Zoom chats the answer to what I’ve been doing is the same as I was doing last week. But I realised I never talked about it on here.

Most of my time is taken up by work (sadly). Usually I’d leave the house at 8:30, work from 9-5:30 with an hour for lunch and get home at 6pm. Now I work from 8am to 4pm with half an hour for lunch. It’s so good to finish at 4pm because it feels so early. Still – even though I’ve bee doing it since summer. I’ve got my morning routine down to 45 minutes, so I have 15 minutes for a sit down before I start work.

After I finish I eat and go for a walk. Then I do an hour of coding before dinner. After dinner is for catching up on social media/forums/RSS feeds etc.

Most evenings I have something else I need to do eg wash my hair, clean out Merry’s wee, go food shopping. Two nights a week I have choir and dancing. This is all the same as before lockdown, except this time I don’t go anywhere (except for food shopping).

Weekends used to be busy, although I can’t remember what I was doing with them any more! But now I clean the house every other weekend, clean Merry out when it’s looking like he needs it, go for longer walks if I have the energy/the weather’s nice. I do end up leaving a lot of jobs for the weekends (like blogging, since I was struggling to find time on Wednesdays). And then I spend a whole load of time coding. I will need to spend some time gardening when it’s not raining or blowing a gale (my garden gained a lot of weeds over the winter).

And that’s what I do with my time. It always seems to go so quickly…
