The Lockdown Diary - DAY 29

Posted 22nd April 2020 at 14:42 by Cormack
Another quiet day of settled routine. Kids are back online schooling so I've been in demand for some maths and biology.

Later on, I threw a basketball around the garden, my daughter joining in. I came to two conclusions
(i) I have done some damage to my shoulder over the last few weeks, I know not how
(ii) Basketball is not my game. I can throw a football to the near post minimum when I don't have one arm and a whelk but I can't hit a basket from fifteen feet....

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 28

The completion of Week 4. I now have trustee status and have been given a job in the library.

For once had a bit of work about that needed immediate (not in the disaster sense) attention, but that was merely a half hour. Had a gab online with a colleague who is also shielding, bit of work and water cooler chat, which was as pleasant as it was welcome - odd to think we haven't seen each other in over a month and won't for at least another two. That goes the same for other colleagues...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 27

The late show again, and it appears to be a facet, not of me, but of the rest of the household sleeping a lot later, the day kickstarting a lot later and my crashing out a lot earlier.

Sunday dinner I went full-on 'Kitchen Nightmare' but not in the Ramsey/Florida basket case and redemption way. I cooked a roast with roasters, veg and gravy, a full pasta bake, sauce and white sauce with other veg, and stove-top chicken, curry and rice. Three different main methods, four sauces, three...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 26

Very late update for Saturday. Everyone seems to have settled into a routine and although it was wet yesterday, it was biscuits and brownies again - used Fudges for the variation and made them into half sized bites. Daughter stepped into more parts of the job and again performed really well. Haven't launched the Lego and we had after-the-match pie, mash and gravy. That there was no match is not something over which I have control

Slept quite a bit, which suggests I needed it,...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 25

Posted 18th April 2020 at 13:59 by Cormack
Another late update today for yesterday's silver jubilee - crashed out last night after an epic curry with chilli, coconut and cod.

The last day of sun was marked by us getting the band back together and all being in the garden for a bit. Had a bit of a kickabout with my son while Mrs C tended the borders. Picked up a brish and made an obligatory 'sweeper' joke that they didn't see coming - lockdown has dulled their edge way too much.

Otherwise it was a day of light...
