...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...

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...

Back to the working week. I was shot to pieces today, aches and pains everywhere and skin not exactly a whiter shade of pale.

Yeah, sue me.

Mum is up for a cast removal and assessment on Wednesday, fingers crossed for a move so she's at least nearer home and able to wear her own kit.

Son is bubbling with enthusiasm over the cricket and had another good...
