A Day In The Life Of Me...During Lockdown! (Part 2)

Last week, I shared with you what a typical day in the life of me looks like when I'm working from home. And today I'm sharing with you what a typical day off in the life of me looks like. Enjoy!


Gotta start the day with a coffee, or two or three! My first thing routine is pretty much the same as a workday, not gonna lie. Get up, dressed, teeth cleaned and hair brushed. Cup of coffee to get me started. Then it's on to chores. 

I have different chores to do dependent on the day and the week. My schedule looks a little something like this: 

Week 1

Tues - Vacuum, dust, clean bathrooms, fish tank water change, washing load on, foam fresh the carpets, mop the hardwood floors, disinfect toilets/sinks/plugs.

Thurs - Vacuum, clean bathrooms, washing load on.

Week 2 

Tues - Vacuum, vacuum stairs, vacuum upstairs, clean bathrooms, fish tank water change, washing load on, foam fresh the carpets, mop the hardwood floors, disinfect toilets/sinks/plugs,

Thurs - Vacuum, change bedding, change cat litter, clean bathrooms, washing load on.


It usually takes me up to two hours to get all the chores done on my day off. I do love the look and smell of a clean house though, and it feels good to tick off so many things on my list. Once the chores are done, it's time for play!


I make time to play with and care for my cat, Harley, on my days off. I don't always have enough time on a workday, so I like to devote plenty of time to him on my days off. I groom him (a must during the Spring/Summer) and blow some catnip bubble for him. 


I spend whatever time I have left of my day off reading, be it a magazine or a book. At the moment, it's magazines. And I can often get through two a day. I go outside at 5pm with my husband and we sit outside with our neighbours for a chat and a beer (at a safe, social distance)! Then I come back in and get on with cooking the dinner. 


Once I'm done cooking, eating and clearing up after dinner I tend to switch on the computer for the first time that day and pick up one of the two games I'm currently obsessed with; Star Stable or The Sims 4. And that's where you'll find me till bedtime! My bedtime routine is the same whatever day it is; switch devices off, feed the fish (every other day), feed the cat, clean out the cat's litter tray (every other day), get a glass of milk and maybe a snack, then up to bed to watch something on Netflix with the husband. 

Tell me what a typical day in lockdown looks like for you!
