The Lockdown Diary - DAY 119

Monday 21 July - DAY 119

Quiet day, limited work manageable as still no main internet - the 72 hours callback deadline approaches. Mrs C is on a busy week for online calls and so limits my own hotspot access.

...will follow when I'm back online at the end of the week. Until then, here's some music (there are around 80 tracks queued up behind this post and an index around day 100)

UPDATE: We're back with a proper connection that has few if any spinning wheels... So, let's catch up...

Friday July 18 - DAY 116

Text received from Virgin saying they couldn't connect to our phone and our Hub isn't set up.

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 115

Hospital. Blood clinics have been rearranged from outlying facilities to the two bigger, more central sites and are walk-in, 12 until 4 on weekdays, which is clearly to reduce risk and limit possible transference.

Masks are mandatory in the building and there's a boxed stack of disposables at the door. Sanitise in, sanitise out. Bloods were on the ground floor so there was no call for lifts or stair etiquette. People sat in the corridors were separated one per bank of three...
