How would you say something has lost its novelty? This means that it is no longer new, and has started to become boring.

E.g - how would you translate:
I quite liked lockdown at first, but now after two months it's lost its novelty and I'm bored.

Thanks :)

    كان منع التجول بالأول حلو، بس هلأ بعد شهرين بطل إلو هيبة/رهجة وصار يزهّق
