Good morning all. After much* thought, I’ve added new locations to the DAYLIGHT UPDATE! but (apologies) have not included the Isle of Wight or Brighton. Instead, I’ve opted for two cities that give a wider geographical spread:
The Beer Factory, Devon
Congratulations to London for smashing the 8 hour daylight mark today, though! Stoked for you
Anyway, enough about daylight. How are you all? How are your days looking? How did you sleep?
Work is 3-11 today. Dreading that a bit. Before that though… Nursery drop off, walk home to drop the buggy off, walk into town to have a haircut, buy a new shampoo bar, walk home, put some veg in the slow cooker to make some stock, wash up, sort the washing out, have lunch, watch some rubbish, walk to work.
Might even look at veg peelers as our good one broke and I don’t like the back up one we have
Isolating with covid in our basement office / playroom / guest bedroom. Wife has both kids including an ill 3 month old (all tested negative for covid). Feeling rough and also guilty that I’m ill and can’t parent. Hoping the lack of kids means I can burn through some digital life admin at least…
Marmite on toast for breakfast. Pub tonight, but not the one I planned, because it turns out that the star & garter is only opening on Friday and Saturday through tour January. Just the Hole in the Wall it is then.
Also, I need to get done money changed into pound coins, and last time I tried the post office we’re absolute sucks about it (yeah, twenty who’s makes me a massive money launderer), so maybe I’ll pop down to the pier and feed a note into a machine in the arcade
Today is very similar to yesterday: Deliver The Child to school, pick up grocery items and pretend I’m going to do marking. If all of those things happen, more computer games. I’m going to try to hunt down some photos of me when I was 20 for the thread too. And and maybe look at holidays.
I might have lasagne for lunch or I might have saag curry.
Just remembered that we decided late last night that we’re having local indian for dinner so that’s something to look forward to. Off to the beer mill shortly, probably do some more stocktaking or something equally fun.
I said something negative to a friend yesterday about something they liked and I can’t seem to let it go. Something trivial, I think, I’m probably making more of it than needs to be.
WFH today, I need to get this project completed soon.
Harry writes that he gave his brother a glass of water and said: “Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this.”
He writes: “He set down the water, called me another name, then came at me. It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor. I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out.”
Harry writes that William urged him to hit back, citing fights they had as children. Harry says he refused to do so. William left, Harry says, then returned “looking regretful, and apologised”.
