The Isolation Diary: Part Two

Ok, I'm slowly losing my mind. Surely this has to end soon? I can't clean my house anymore, I'm running out of things to do and I miss KFC and Gregg's terribly. If you haven't already read part one of my Isolation Diary series (I may as well call it a series now as it's slowly turning into one) give the first part a read if you want before reading this one! Here's hopefully the second (and last) part of my isolation diary:





WEEK SEVEN
_____________

Day Forty Three (27th April) - There's a knock on my door, I look out my window and my neighbour is waving and pointing to my doorstep. She's only gone and made me cakes to cheer me up! I honestly have the best neighbours in the world! 


Day Forty Four - The house buyer on Escape To The Country is wearing nude leggings and it's really winding me up!


Day Forty Five - I've realised that during this lockdown, I have managed to catch up on all the sleep I've missed out on over the last three years.


Day Forty Six - Today (from my doorstep) I danced the Macarena while wearing my dressing gown with my other neighbours. As you do.


Day Forty Seven - I seem to have woken up with Madonna - Like A Prayer stuck in my head. Nope, I don't know either.


Day Forty Eight - I've just found out Cadbury's Dream white chocolate is being sold in supermarkets again. Day made.


Day Forty Nine - I'm currently belting out Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera on Heart radio whilst on the treadmill. How's your Sunday going?



WEEK  EIGHT
_____________

Day Fifty (4th May) - Oh no, I'm going to see a tonne of 'May the 4th Be With You' tweets today. I think I shall be spending the day away from Twitter.


Day Fifty One - Another Tuesday, another day of boredom.


Day Fifty Two - I'm in a real snappy mood for a Wednesday. I don't know whether it being Wednesday has made a difference, but I'm not in the greatest mood today.


Day Fifty Three - I've curled my hair and I've put some fake tan on my legs. I feel fabulous again.


Day Fifty Four - A social distancing street party has taken place where I live for VE Day. There's bunting everywhere and it's been a lovely day!


Day Fifty Five - A fire engine arrives in our street and all of my neighbours congregate in their front gardens to find out what's going on. Nothing serious thankfully, but I hope the neighbour down the street who lit an out of control bonfire in his front garden gets fined.


Day Fifty Six - There's been a few birthday cards posted through the door today. You'd think it was somebody's birthday tomorrow...



WEEK  NINE
____________

Day Fifty Seven (11th May) - Yes, it's my birthday today and I'm turning 27! Celebrating a birthday during lockdown - this should be fun.


Day Fifty Eight - After a very uneventful but equally as pleasant birthday, it's time to get on with Tuesday.


Day Fifty Nine - Getting a bunch of flowers in the post from one of my closest friends and an Amazon gift from one of my closest blogging friends has brightened up my Wednesday!


Day Sixty - Jeez, I'm not on day 60 of lockdown am I?! Bloody hell. Anyway, I'm feeling grateful today for the lighting from my landing window.


Day Sixty One - Found today that some people don't call the ends of bread 'crusts'. My mind is blown.


Day Sixty Two - Just seen a dress on ASOS I liked, but for the life of me, I couldn't fathom where my boobs would go, I'd get arrested for public indecency if I wore it down to Tesco (well, not right now obviously).


Day Sixty Three - I've thrown my back out. I'm in absolute agony. Even Colonel Tom Moore can walk better than me right now.



WEEK  TEN
____________

Day Sixty Four (18th May) - I've woken up, my back is straighter, I can walk properly again and I have a fresh fake tan on my legs. Happy Monday!


Day Sixty Five - The Premier League is planning to make a comeback soon. Something which I don't feel comfortable with. Call me soppy and sentimental, but I do care more about people right now, and I care about the footballer's health and wellbeing. I know they'll be social distancing, but still. How the hell can you social distance in a dressing room and on a team bus?!


Day Sixty Six - A brief visit to the hospital for a port flush is on my very empty agenda today. Plus it's a beautiful day, which means a nice drive.


Day Sixty Seven - Fully beginning to realise that some of the British are the most selfish people on this Earth.


Day Sixty Eight - The irony that I've been suffering with my mental health during mental health week is just...


Day Sixty Nine - I'm kind of glad to see rain, it means those selfish nobheads won't feel the need to travel to beaches.


Day Seventy - I've had a sit down outside in the back garden for the first time in ages and it's been the best part of my Sunday!



WEEK  ELEVEN
____________

Day Seventy One (25th May) - I've had a massive clothes sort out, hoovered everywhere in my house and now I'm sitting outside with a cuppa watching the birds. Birds are surprisingly entertaining to watch.


Day Seventy Two - A drive around the block in this beautiful weather has done me the world of good!


Day Seventy Three - I have just weighed myself. After the horror revelation of how much weight I've gained during lockdown, I have decided that I need to go on a diet.


Day Seventy Four - You know I said I was going to go on a diet? I've just demolished a bacon sandwich and a bag of prawn cocktail crisps. Hmm, I'll start tomorrow instead...


Day Seventy Five - I'm into day 75 of lockdown - it feels like it's lasted 75 years.


Day Seventy Six - Watching the Space Station fly over us in the sky - what a surreal moment.


Day Seventy Seven - How the hell have I grown to hate weekends during lockdown?



WEEK  TWELVE
____________

Day Seventy Eight (1st June) - Is it just me or is there something strangely nice about the first day of a new month being on a Monday?


Day Seventy Nine - It's Blackout Tuesday. Today feels like a sobering yet momentous day in the world.


Day Eighty - I had a very exciting day today. I'll tell you more on Friday!


Day Eighty One - Finding out that the vulnerable have to self isolate for another 10 weeks until 16th August has put me in such a despondent mood. I don't know if I can mentally do this.


Day Eighty Two - I'M IN A PODCAST! Give it a listen here


Day Eighty Three - Is there such a thing as having long legs when you're only 5ft 3? My neighbour (from a social distance) said this and I'm actually quite pleased by this comment!


Day Eighty Four - It's just dawned on me that I'll be posting this new Isolation Diary entry tomorrow and I'll be doing a third one which could most likely be turn into a fourth one after that. Jeez aloo.

  3. Congrats on your podcast appearance! I said it last time but this is such a great way to document such a crappy situation and I can imagine it'll make for some interesting reading in the years down the line. Hopefully for the sakes of our mental health this bloody thing will be over soon!

  8. Oh my goodness what a lovely idea! This is precious - I wish I thought of this from the beginning of iso!

    I really enjoyed reading this, and seeing how your highs and lows play out - I resonate with those 'mood swings' so much.

  9. I love how you've been keeping a record of the days. I haven't and I don't know what day it is or how long I've been stuck in the house.
    I'm not complaining though. I've actually been enjoying the silence.

    1. I struggle to remember what day it is too, the only way I know what day it is is by looking at my tablet box in the mornings! There's nothing better than peace and quiet is there?!

  15. I loved this, there's something oddly powerful about just a sentence or two a day. I know it's a roller coaster of emotions, good days and bad put some of your passing comments really put a smile on my face. I hope for the sake of your MH that 3 is the last one! x

  16. This is actually a super cute way to document this experience and life in general haha! I'm honestly considering doing this myself now - one line a day sort of thing. It'd be such a great way to look back and remember brief feelings from different days/years. It's great to hear you had a nice birthday despite the circumstances, I'm a May baby too but mine was on the 25th!
