What did The Geek do during Lockdown?

What have I done during the lockdown? That’s the question to myself.

I’ve knitted, I’ve crocheted, I ate a lot, cooked a lot, went to work (workplace and home), tried to be flexible and traveled between work sites, invested in a lot of masks (disposable and reusable), bought a new laptop – so disappointed that I had to spend a tiny fortune, a new hand blender – needed a new one anyway, a nail cutter and various circular needles. Did my tax return from when I worked as a freelancer for a short period of time last year, watched a lot of K-drama, J-drama, variety shows and also listened to a few books on Audible……. (and now listening to Finding Freedom, which is about Harry and Meghan’s fight to freedom from Royalty. It reminds me of the book/movie: Crazy Rich Asians; it also makes me think that not everyone in this world is perfect). 

I attempted to knit socks on 2 needles but I hate sewing, so I attempted about 3 times to make socks for Baby B. I’ve now knitted/crocheted 4 scarves, 1 snood, 3 hats and 2 pairs of socks, all in four months. (Also just finished 1 pair of baby booties).

Computer breakdown. 😦

Out with Miss Pinky during lockdown eating ramen at Koi Ramen in the new Elephant and Castle site.

Cooked a lot… I made more than this (mostly noodles, heheheheh).

After breaking my beautiful black shot glass, I was in search of another. I didn’t the cheap ones in Poundland and most came in sets, so in the end I went to Japan Centre and bought a couple of pretty shot glasses… When I was going home, I realised that there was going to a Black Lives Matter protest in Westminster! The crowd was incredible…

Thought I would throw in this funny street art poster which I saw on Walworth Road. I guess it’s representing the lies about coronavirus… 😦

I also went to Miss Pinky’s and celebrated Master B’s first birthday! It happened just after lockdown was lifted. This was an amazing cake made by Miss Pinky’s sister-in-law. So tasty!

Well, that sums up what I did during lockdown. What did you do?
