The Lockdown Diary - DAY 107

Posted Yesterday at 23:52 by Cormack
Contents may settle in transit. Today was quieter.

It's been a frantic couple of weeks and I have learnt to despise the phone all over again. On this day, there were double figure interactions on the phone.

This is unacceptable. I understand the requirement, especially in the current climate and doubly so after recent events but it is still, as Stephen Fry said, the rudest invention known to man, sitting there repeating itself, "talk to me, talk to me"...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 106

Cake was a massive hit. I've made it on multiple occasions but the "cream the butter and sugars" method has a clear advantage over the "all in".

We 'had a table' and it went down well, everyone ate their fill and there was a bit over, which is nice.

Other than that, Mrs C's onsite present was not to be mithered all day, watch Netflix and be fed. Level up. We'll do something further into summer when we're less restricted.

Busy, busy, so am on catch-up. Mrs C's birthday on #106 so I decided that I would make a cake. I have a cracking recipe which makes a firm unit ripe for carving, and it came out the best ever. I have become Cake Boss.

Slept badly, second night inside a week, no real reason but it explains why this entry is two days after the event and a day late.

Went to nets, and the planned tournament is now scheduled for the weekend and in two weeks to finish. The club has unsurprisingly...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 104

Now we're out of lockdown (I think?), does this thread need an asterisk?

Quiet Sunday, there was cleaning going on upstairs and a postponed CHIP DAY! oddly never took off (I did peel - new peeler with the mandolin(e) is excellent - and chop a few but there was no real queue) to the point that I had a quiet day in the kitchen. I made cookies on #103 and they were eaten by this morning and made Lion Bar brownies today which might have been the best batch I've ever made - held together...

The Lockdown Diary - DAY 103

A day of limited drama in store which I managed to ramp up. Mum has the phone working and chargeable and is doing pretty well. Fingers crossed for a move so she can get her own gear delivered, but at the same time she's naturally gregarious and comfy where she is if it has to be so.

The pubs opened and the Wetherspoon's in Old Swan was packed, I assume with people who miss low grade beef and catering chips. We passed by say 50 yards away in the car and I wish I'd worn a mask......
