The Lockdown Diary - DAY 49

Posted 12th May 2020 at 22:40 by Cormack
Was off work on #49 and had a quiet time. Limited pinch-hitting teacher and cookhouse duty as a usual.

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 48

Son's kitchen skills are now developing in the same way as daughter's - they're both starting effectively from scratch but are now doing what were novel basics as routine basics. They still clean no dishes, no pans, no eating irons, no utensils. I'll accept that.

For now.

Recommended listening - Oasis, Supersonic

Lazy day otherwise. Allowed my head to wander, ate brownies,...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 47

Posted 10th May 2020 at 00:21 by Cormack
Broke ranks today. Mum hasn't seen grandkids nor great-grandkids since lockdown through shielding on every piece of the equation. She's also in lockdown as she's 83, and she has solely my brother and the phone for company. Consequently, to at least do something about it, Mrs C would take the kids from door to door (5 miles) to have some outdoor socially-distanced contact. Given the premise of what we were going to do, Mrs C gave me a free pass to come with.

A Bank Holiday, so a day where you can legitimately do nothing and not feel as if you should be somewhere and doing something, although I'd like the option? Mrs C and the kids went bike-happy again and went out early (Mrs C on foot with the dog) and later, daughter and Mrs C on their bikes while son sat it out - tbh that was so mum could borrow his bike rather than maintain one of the others at short notice, and they'd have slowed him down.

Naturally, I had to arrange the ins and...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 45

I have outlasted Brian Clough's tenure at Leeds.

I had a bad, no, an off night on #44 and so was unable to sleep until late on. Nothing extravagant, just a blip that would affect me come the morning. Caught up a couple of hours' sleep mid-afternoon after getting a bit of work out the way and prepared for a four-day weekend.

Son asked me what happens if he's set work by school on the Bank Holiday. My reply which amused him was 'you won't see it because you're off'....
