In the time of the virus: and another day

In the time of the virus: day 100

In the time of the virus: day 87

Wet, wet wet.  That was today here.  But despite  (or maybe because of) the incessant rain I had another lovely walk back home from Kelston, marred only by the increased traffic on the main road. On the way home I … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 84

A very good day, despite sleep issues (as ever…) and everything going on in the wider world.  About which the less said the better. A bit too humid to be comfortable working outside, but nonetheless I got a lot done … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 80
