Nothing Significant to Report

I’ve not been posting much because nothing much has been happening. Lockdown 2.0 is very much like Lockdown 1.0 but a bit slicker. The shopping is largely sorted, mostly because Morrisons have expanded their delivery service. It now arrives weekly, picked from their Tewksbury store. That makes more sense than previously, when it was delivered from a regional hub north of Birmingham. Their substitutions for missing items are generally intelligent, and the use-by dates are usually reasonable so I only have to do minimal top-up shopping at Waitrose or the local convenience store. I’m glad I’ve got a freezer though, as that makes things much easier.

I’m going into work only about once a fortnight at the moment, working from home the rest of the time. I’ve sorted out my wifi, and use a work-supplied 4G dongle which provides enough bandwidth for videoconferences. I’m fortunate that I can do most of my job from home, and our facilities manger has done a very good job of making the office environment COVID-safe for those days when I do need to go in.

Obviously, I’m not going out unless it’s strictly necessary. I’m pleased I managed to get to the theatre and the pottery during the brief window that they were open over the summer, and I do miss them. I also miss my previously regular back massages – I’ve not had one since February and the knots have really built up in my back and shoulders. But overall, things are going ok, with nothing much happening and so nothing much to say….

    Good to hear you are OK and you do have easy access for walking the hills. One day they may release us from this tyranny.
