Assuming that in normal circumstances you follow a routine of carrying out your morning ablutions and making yourself presentable to the world, in these times of isolation do you continue with that or have you lapsed into a life of no make-up, unkempt hair, and pyjamas because if you're not going anywhere anything more taxing isn't worth the effort? Chaps can ignore the reference to make-up - or not - depending on personal preferences.

I don’t usually go braless but did yesterday as all mine suddenly feel horribly uncomfortable. Bits of wire digging in and scratchy seams. Who designs these things?
A woman, believe it or not, clover :-)
^lol, I wasn't expecting that answer from you, pixie.
You never fail to misread me, spice ;-) lol

Spicerack, As if everybody gets up, showers, exercises, dresses up when they don't go to work. //

Discounting the early morning exercise you mention, the rest I do. Always have. A shower takes little time and it's as easy to wear nice clothes as it is to wear scruffy clothes - so why wouldn't you?
Things like showering and dressing are just such ingrained habits, that I can't relax anyway until I have done them. My exercise is walking the dogs. I'm not a jogger or anything daft.
We’re all up at 9, dressed then go for a walk and then the youngest three get on with school work (if they can access the server). Eldest two are more relaxed as one has had his GCSEs cancelled and the other has been sent home from uni. Me and himself go to work at odd hours but I am more organised because of this as they still have to eat so prep needs doing.
I'm a bit scruffier than normal, getting a bit depressed. We were in self seclusion, but that's been made official now with a 12 week order from DWP for us not to go out, due to Jen's underlying medical condition.
Might be different depending on work environment and circs, but...
I've lived with hundreds of blokes in digs. Never, not once, did 1 of them have a shower before work.
And in my, admittedly limited, experience of waking up with birds, they're even mankier.
People are afraid to put their heads above the parapets on these type of threads.
The one about washing bedding was hilarious.
Spice @ 10;13..."So you can get back to wandering around naked....." Don't do that anymore, Spice, as the young woman across the street complained about it to my next door neighbour. Next door neighbour said, "But you can't see in Ken's window, he has net curtains up." Young woman replied, "You can if you press your face against the window and cup your eyes with your hands."
Plus, the girls i know hardly ever wear make-up. Maybe they're lucky, they look great without it.
As for showering every morning; bit of a white lie, there. Should have said most mornings - every morning when not working. I do suffer night sweats, mainly around the head and shoulder areas - sometimes further down below - and a shower takes just as long as washing hair.
Lol. Did the gasman turn up, ken? BG have suspended routine checks.
Hmmm. Lady showers, makeup, dons a diaphanous gown as she is alone in the house.
Suddenly, a knock at the door!
It's the gas check man built like Adonis.
In he comes, and is offered coffee, which he spills on his clothes, which you offer to wash for him.
(It's getting warm in here!)
Dressed now only in his Calvin Kleins, he brushes past you to get to the gas meter.
A layer of sweat build up on your upper lip, as you admire his naked torso, and his buns.
You think you are in a dream, making one of those movies, when suddenly, he turns to you and says, "Eh up luv, any chance of a brew, two sugars and a biscuit? And if me clothes are dry, must run soon, boyfriend picking me up in half an hour to go for a pint." :-)
Maybe people just have different routines, spice. I work physically closely with many people at least 6 days a week. There is no way I wouldn't have a shower and clean clothes before I went in. It may not matter so much with different jobs... but old habits... x
We both mainly work from home so it's really no different to us. OK, I'm not popping out like I usually would but I'm not really missing it.

I always do my hair, but if I am at home I rarely wear makeup. I always get dressed though. Mr BM sometimes wanders round in his dressing gown til about midday. But that's normal.
It's not BG, Spice. Due anytime between 10 and 12. Should have been here Monday but things went threepennies up. I don't think they dare miss doing it 'cos if anything untoward happened, they'd be liable. I was asked if i'd been in contact with anyone suffering from C19. I assured them I haven't - as far as I am aware - and asked that the engineer they send out can say likewise :-)
:-)) at Theland
have gone braless since working at home unless walking the hounds and living in tracky bottoms and sweatshirts!
I don't always manage make-up, depending what time I have managed to persuade myself to get out of bed. Thankfully, four of our clients are blind...
