Month: April 2020


A new week…

So then welcome to another week of what now passes as normal. It’s been busy, and lots was achieved today which helps. I also made it out for a walk which is something, I’ve been promising my self to get sorted.

I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike

Queen Song Lyric (done from memory so apologies if wrong)

I’ve been thinking of a bike for a while, but it never quite worked out, but its done. I’ve applied via the works cycle scheme, so I just need to wait as it goes through the process. I suspect I wont be the only one and its quite a common purchase. From my work from home position, I’ve seen lots of cyclists go by. Not withstanding the lack of bike, I’ve also had issues get a helmet to go on my big head. Suggestions to me please….

Outside of this life plods on and we’ve been out in the garden attempting to kill off some of the weeds but thats a bigger work in progress. This isn’t being helped with a full green gardening bin, and no service to empty the dam thing.

Oh well.

Enough from me.




So then, what’s occurring?

So after the last post saying it have been a while, I’ve been shopping and am now sitting in the garden, with a beer in easy reach, and garden party play list care of spotify playing across the garden.

I end up writing stuff down, when either:

  • My head is fuzzy
  • I am thikning to much
  • I am bored
  • I feel the need to write

I think, its a mixture of the lot this time, and I did think about posting a few weeks back but never quite go there.

First up – Covid19 / Corona

Well if you don’t know about this, then I would suggesting running quickly back to your cave or where ever you’ve been hiding. It might be safer there…..

Certainly a global pandemic wasnt on the plan at the start of the year, but its here so we deal with it. Like many people, its been work from home (WFH) for me after 4 weeks out in Manchester for the company. It’s an adjustment right enough, but life is plodding on. If you’d told me I would have to queue for a super marker, and maintain social distancing, wipe all the surfaces all the time, and hand gel all the time, I wouldn’t have believed you but its the new norm.

Next Up WFH

So working from home is a thing now, and I’ve set my self up a home office, and the other half has the other part of the table ready set up for home working when it’s allowed. It’s different, and probably not for me in the long term but it works. Technology has really helped. I’ve been lukcy and i thank the company for that.

Another loose project I started was in planning for out new car, when the Seat comes back in August. A slow start but its coming, a long way from Korea I think. Fully electric, so that’s different

The parents

Cheating as I can as this links back to Covid… but they’ve been self isolating which is the right thing to do. I think they’ve almost enjoyed the shopping we’ve been doing. It’s fair to say we don’t always shop for what they want.

To help them with everything going on and to communicate, we got them a Facebook portal to video chat, and they’ve taken to it quite well to be fair. Its been a surprise!

Break point….

I think i am going to stop here, my 3rd beer is calling, and the poor quality writing is only going to get worse.
