The 10 things lockdown actually didn’t change!

Anyone else’s life not changed that much since the start of lockdown?

At the beginning of lockdown we all went into panic mode thinking our lives would never be the same again. Yes, we have had to get used to wearing masks in shops and not being able to leave our homes as often, but has it really changed all that much?

We thought back to the start of lockdown and of all the things we were panicking about and realised that actually, not everything changed all that much. We might even go as far as to say some things improved! Here are a few things we thought at the start of lockdown and how they actually turned out:

We’ll have to stay in and watch Netflix all day!

Pretty sure we all spent our Sunday’s doing this anyway! This just gave us a great excuse to do it on a Wednesday too and not feel one ounce of guilt.

We can’t see our friends

We don’t know about you guys, but we actually saw our friends more in lockdown than we did before! Arranging a video call is way easier than getting everyone in the same place at the same time. Plus, we’re now all pub quiz geniuses!

We’re going to exercise every day!

Erm, 4 months in and we haven’t done one online class. We’re beyond help!

Constant cleaning will be a pain

We’re now part of the Hinch army and our homes have never been cleaner, result!

The weather = garden 24/7. Pass me another Mojito!

As we prepare to get used to our new normal, we challenge you to also look back and try to think of some of the positives that have come from our lockdown lives! Although the last few months have been uncertain for us all, they may not have been as bad as we first thought.
