Landmark - had a net!

Recommended listening - Steve Winwood, Back In The High Life Again



I decided to give my shoulder a test. Had a good working day before that. However, after it at nets, I couldn’t bowl still (shoulder is still shot but a bit easier – cannot fully rotate confidently enough to bowl though – I tried) and the odd shot set it screaming as well.

Also got an unexpected...

Thursday July 24 - DAY 122

Mum finally got her gear as the ward relaxed enough for her to get a Red Cross package. Out of cotton fatigues and back into her own outfits - yay. A couple of books - yay. And tea last night didn't agree with her so I'd send in a sandwich - yay. I could boo the absence of baked goods as I had none done as this all changed quickly, but she had her stuff within the hour, Mrs C outdoing all on delivery once again.

Mum also gets a move on...

Wednesday 23 July - DAY 121

Mrs C was on multiple calls so work would be sporadic at best, so I booked me a day off and pottered about a bit, which was pleasant.

Another game down at the club despite inter-club restrictions - 20 over thrash, me on the book again. Son got out when not ready to face after looking dead set and not realising that he could step away.

Tuesday 22 July - DAY 120

No internet. No engineer contact. I rang to find out I’d wasted four days because despite serving 31 days’ notice, the internet was turned off after 10 working. We had not asked for that (indeed the very opposite - keep us on until crossover). So, to recap...

We’ve been at home now for some 120 days and the strain on the web connection is palpable. Stone Age phone of mine notwithstanding, there are on any given day eight or nine other...

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.

Another good net in the evening, the boy's game continues to bed in and he is enjoying himself no end. He is a better batsman than I ever was – I accrued runs, but he scores. I had a few shots but he has a more complete book. He has eye and timing as well whereas...
