Fun in 2020?

This year has been pretty shit. We don’t have the horrific death toll from Covid-19 that other countries have, but we still spent what felt like years in lockdown (decades, if you’re Victorian) Businesses closed and some haven’t and won’t open their doors again. Unemployment is huge, the economy has taken a massive hit and we’re still living under a cloud of anxiety. It’s not exactly a recipe for fun times, is it?

The Pandemic List

It’s a weird time, right? I feel like a lot of people, myself included, have adjusted to living with a constant baseline of high anxiety. It’s frightening and stressful. So, to amuse/distract  myself, I started this list in the notes app on my phone. Then I thought I’d publish it, listicle style, for your amusement/distraction.

I remember a while ago, when personal blogging was at it’s peak. It wasn’t about promoting products or getting followers; it was about sharing stuff. Your thoughts, ideas, recipes, pictures and all that good content that let you get to know a person. A bunch of bloggers I followed would post regular “taking stock” updates. I’m not sure whose idea it was, but I think it was Pip Lincolne’s blog, Meet Me At Mike’s, where I saw it first.

Life at home has had me bored. And I’m a grown-up, with internet access, streaming tv and movie services, shelves full of books plus access to my local library’s e-book collection. I can run myself a bath, do exercise, bake to my stomach’s heart’s content, day drink, shop online or any combination of the above! I am dabbling in DIY, trying out craft and getting my garden in shape. But I’m still bored. I miss my friends. And yes, I know I’m very lucky, but I’m still fecking bored. And if I’m bored, kids at home are definitely suffering the same thing. Too young and too broke for online shopping and day drinking, the poor things. So I’ve tried to come up with a bit of a novelty activity to do at home.
