Day 32: I have been having so many questions in my head - albeit some of them are rhetorical. Such as what's the purpose of life? Does it involve being stuck for day and night in 50m square flat? What do my friends to kill boredom? Will we survive this pandemic?

Day 18: We celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday with a simple dinner and a glass of wine. 

We've been married for 4 years now. Things weren't always easy but I think we've been doing well so far. 

On second note, the weather gets really warmer in London. It's 22 degrees! We eat our lunch in the balcony. Something that we wouldn't be able to do if not for the lockdown.

Day 15: We don't have a study room. So we've been using the living room for work. It's big enough for two but the situation becomes inconvenient when one of us needs to make a call. Both of us make video calls several times a day. 

I did my own haircut, 10mm around, on Saturday. My head feels 10 kg lighter now. I had the same haircut many years ago when I lived in Indonesia...

Day 12: We finished setting up a new website for Ihar's friend yesterday. Phew! It took couple of days of work installing WordPress, setting the domain, and editing its theme. Yay!

I found out that Ihar was collapsed in the bathroom at 2am. We're feeling a bit "funny" today. Weather wise, London is very gloomy and remains cold - 10 degrees! Where's the sunshine?

Day 10: Our 'new life' has become a routine now. The day starts at 07.15 with coffee, followed by shower. We don't have much choice for breakfast but muesli. Ihar opens his laptop at 8.30, and I after 9.00. We stop for tea between emails and calls.

Talking about office calls, it can be tricky. The size of our living room doesn't allow enough room for noise. Only one person can talk at a time. It means, I will need to take a call in the kitchen if Ihar stays in living room.

Day 8: We haven't been out of the flat for a week now. Well, Ihar went for foods shopping on Friday but that doesn't really count. We are physically well (that's the most important!) and calmer than last week.
