The Lockdown Diary - DAY 34

Posted 27th April 2020 at 20:51 by Cormack
Very late on the Sunday update but there was very little going on. Had a substantial late afternoon kip which meant a really late scran but as it was a burger night, no biggie

Listened to a bit of Colin Hay while on KP

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 33

The weekend as it is means brownies. No biscuits this week (Mrs C and daughter will be making a cookies packet mix for ease of collaboration) but my daughter was leading with an urgency which isn't usually there. However, this week she had put in to make Nutella brownies and was intrigued by the prospect. Came out as they should once again, subtle hazlenut in there and decent.

The other kitchen event was the field stripping of the deep fat fryer. Mundane as that sounds, it means...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 32

A day that was to a degree the reverse of the day before. Started well enough, IT grief made work an unnecessary pill and taxed me more than I would have been if it had been routinely available.

Got my bit of sun, made Mrs C a lasagne that could win awards and had Steak with a capital S, it was such an event

Back to the day on which events happened, largely because events didn't happen. Nod to DS, FTE and WM, whose sharpshooting keeps the US racing winnings ticking over nicely. I got to follow most of it, as you'll now see.

The huge tea I had last night plotted and exercised a brutal but essentially superficial revenge on me to the point that I didn't get to sleep until around 6am. Took the day off work to catch up as there would be a kipping deficit somewhere, and it turned up late...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 30

Posted 23rd April 2020 at 14:09 by Cormack
Started the day that was bathed in sunshine but without the blowiness of the day before by cooking breakfast, post early work, listening to Ska with Alexa. Gave the day a real lift, proper summer feel and something to bounce around to.

Love the Specials homage cover version as well, but the original feels about ten degrees warmer
