Notes From Quarantine.

April 18, 2020


It's officially been one month since I was at work. It feels like it's been ageeees now and at the start of this, I was in a pretty good routine and getting shit done. Now I've slipped into being lazy, sleeping in and not doing a great deal. I feel like I need a slap to just snap out of it. I've made myself a list of jobs I need to do around the house, diy stuff that has been meaning to be done for ages but just hasn't been. I don't want to get to end of this time and regret how I spent it.

This whole thing has made me think about a couple of things though. The main thing is generally about how I spend my money. I'm that person that is usually skint because I've spent it on crap I don't need. Because I haven't been out, I haven't spent money on a whim and it feels pretty good to be able to save up.

Another thing I want to change is where I spend my money too. I am a sucker for just nipping to primark and finding something "that'll do". With this sort of outing how the heads of companies feel and where their loyalties lie (don't get me started on Phillip Green), I don't want to line the pockets of these people. I want to shop a lot more ethically, either by shopping small or vintage.

In the same vein, I want companies that I give money to to be in line with my morals. I don't want to give money to companies who test on animals anymore. I've been doing a lot of googling and spent a lot of time on cruelty free kitty and generally I don't think it's going to be a tough swap to make. The only thing that does seem a little difficult is perfumes. Any CF faves, send them this way.

The one thing I do miss buying is plants! I'm craving a new plant baby and I cannot wait to browse a garden centre again. It's funny the things we miss.
