    Morning, freezing at the moment, lovely bright sunshine, dog walked , I’ve also been to the supermarket and managed to get everything we need, I felt a bit guilty only spending £26
    Have a good day

    Going to try and do some exercise while avoiding people. Looks a bit nippy out though and everything already feels like it has cramp.

    Long dog walk and now on spin bike whilst having a cup of tea to replicate sitting on the M42

    Later is a run or bike ride

    Riding through cashmere?

    All quiet here walked the dog, it's rather cold though. After yesterday's morons in various places looks like we are hurtling toward a total lockdown 🙄 hopefully I can still go out into the garage. Have to go out my gate to open the door as I put off cutting in a rear access, silly me now!

    Anyway coffee an go for a run

    Morning, slobbing at home off shift. Already looking at evicting eldest and expelling youngest and half expecting OH to say she's going to be fully WFH, only normal thing in the house is the dog. Will ride out later onto the back lanes that nobody uses or knows. Roll on normality again.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Went for a run last night so the legs ache a bit, but it cleared the cobwebs away.

    Now sitting in spare room working on year endy type stuff which is a bit dull but still keeps me occupied and out of Stressbag's way. Stropteen is doing her virtual homework in the study next door which thankfully is keeping her from getting bored.

    Day 1 of working from home. Office broadband has gone done (despite 2 separately routed lines) so can't connect to the server.

    Good start!

    Ours is flakey, been asked to keep off it for now, they are currently re tooling to help this Corona fight so they need bandwidth.

    My OH is going to be alternating between office and WFH, luckily her legal systems are cloud based so after linking home PC and subsequent other systems and antivirus she's all happy. Home broadband seemingly holding up even when being battered by both lads using Xbox,s. I'm getting bored and I'm only off shift, argh. Run or ride later on my own suspect.

    WFH since 12th for me. Lot's going on. Mental Health taking a battering.

    Turbo later, cuppa on balcony in a minute.

    Suspect this might be a serious public health issue soon (not that it isn't already). Keep it up, it won't be forever. The OH is at work because her industry has key worker status, I'm WFH but it all feels a bit pointless at the moment

    We had a staff meeting this morning and are carrying on at the moment, three sites over the next weeks are empty units so the fitters can be fairly isolated. WFH for staff isn't really practical but I can do bits.

    Might go out on the bike tonight.

    Two staff in my office are trying to negotiate deals with local hotels for staff - those with high risk people at home and those from London facing lockdown. We need to act quick. It seem Hilton are negtoaiting at high level with the NHS and DoH, but the local smaller/independent hotels are making positive noises to us.

    I'm quite liking this WFH thing. Dragged the turbo into the sunshine and got 30 mins HIIT session in at lunchtime.

    Had 5 mins of WFH this morning just to check things worked which they did.
    Had a reasonably nice day off doing sweet FA.
    Next door came home dragging something big in a bag, while carrying a can of petrol. Hope whatever it is isn't getting chucked over my fence - alight or otherwise.

    Day working at home. Made shepherd's pie, which was guzzled by the gannets. Tyre and inner tubes arrived, which will be fitted tomorrow ahead of a swiftish 40 to 50k.

    Soooo, welcome to lockdown, odds on some protest will kick off in the next few days?
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 7,334
    To be expected with some of the idiots around. Local carboot was on yesterday. People from at least five Midlands cities mixed it up there. Stay safe out there folks.

    True, I think I'm still safe to go to my garage though, I don't have to leave my own land to access it.
