wednesday is a simulation

'ning

wfh in a land without summer, much coffee

mrs s broke one of the cats' bowls yesterday, she was rightly mortified, same-day delivery of replacement restored harmony

yesterday's pcr negative, two test & trace calls so far, reading exactly the same script to tell me what i already know, it was tedious the first time, johnson's cronies squander billions on this, grrr

    Morning, overcast again, tigger walked , I’m supping tea like it’s going out of fashion, the garage gate needs some attention that’s today’s job
    Have a good day

    Supping tea, yes
    Repairing garden gates no, I would rather be out on the bike, but I still feel a bit rough

    Morning folks,
    Day of nothing in particular. Off to the old dear's shortly as her car wouldn't start yesterday. Not sure where she thought she was going given she's supposed to be isolating.
    Thanks for the reminder TLW, our anniversary tomorrow so I should get a card.
    Other than that, get the lad to sort his stuff out, pottering and chilling.

    Tried to nibble my shoes but I need those today. Two magpies chases it away in the end, obviously some kind of beef between them.

    Last one I saw was jumping over our garden wall to escape 2 rapidly approaching hounds. They must think foxes taste nice.

    Busy day, got quarterly reporting starting and have too many idiots asking random questions but it still takes time to brush them off. More caffeine I think.

    Allegedly no foxes in Tasmania at all, a surprise given the introduction of rabbits by the early settlers. Lots on the mainland.

    Another day of taxi duty to doctor's appointments.

    Busy busy today, tired after yesterdays sleepless night, might grab a bottle of Nightnurse on the way home.
    Should have been riding tonight but a bout of CBA has put paid to that. Might go for a longer one tomorrow instead and take pictures of things to prove it.

    In other thoughts, is anyone actually thinking of using the new green list for a foreign jaunt? Mrs HD is chomping at the proverbial to go...

    probs is, ypu know they will change the list whilst you're away leaving you to run around a foreign country trying to rebook flights for the basic fact that they are all tory fascists

    Ride ridden including a brief cross over into Hobbit country (Derbyshire) On my return the missus offered and made me a bacon sandwich, followed by a slice of home made victoria sponge and an egg custard.
    Life is good.

    what mf said

    because green->amber could happen anytime, you need to be able to handle amber - extra tests, 10 days home quarantine or 5 with ttr

    main risk is that destinations will ban/quarantine uk arrivals due to the uncontrolled increase in cases here

    fwiw i'm hoping to head back to the volcanoes in a few weeks, but with london already c. 10x the lanzarote infection rate and some areas of the uk much higher, i do wonder if spain will bar entry from uk

    its also the fact that when the sun is shining it ain't too shabby around here and we're pretty chilled out as to the mask thingies - we know where to wear them and not, can plan stuff, make life as easy as. Avoiding plague ridden imbeciles is easy while still having a nice time.

    i honestly can't be bothered to go somewhere, try to work out mask protocols, test here, test there, keep an eye out on the British news for green to amber changes, have to look at the British news at all in fact, have to interact with anyone I don't really want to in fact.

    Life's been tricky enough as is recently, why make it more so?

    just wait a year and blow two year's hols money on ho' and blow and getting kicked around hotel bedrooms by women in high heels and labcoats..

    At least you have somewhere to stay if you can't get back.
