2005.09 NOT HOLIDAY

Ok, the plan was to be in Wales for our birthdays. I'd booked the time off and was really looking forward to some quality time in our 'special place'. Of course that was not to be.

2005.02 I AM NORSE - GET OVER IT

People in the real world may know and have noticed my leaning towards the Norse. Its an important part of my world. But what should you take away from this information?

2004.26 PROJECT SHED IS ON

The day I've strived for and saved for for many many years is finally in front of me. I've ordered my shed. Some may scoff and roll their eyes - a shed? After all a shed is just a garden building for storage isn't it. Well I hope not. For years I've wanted a space I can look after my bikes, do little DIY jobs and maybe even escape too when life gets a bit too much.

Some time ago I wrote about the review on my role at work and how it'd been pushed through resulting in a nasty pay cut.

2004.12 EASTER LOCKDOWN

Easter or Ostara is a time of rebirth, a time to celebrate the end of winter and that our passage through the darkness and the cold is over for another year. But this year is different. We are locked down at home, family and friends are apart and that hurts.

2004.06 KEY WORK

So I've been back at work now for a week (6 days actually) and things are slowly returning to normal. Except its not. The new normal is different - the world has changed overnight and everything has become almost like a bad apocalypse movie.

2003.24 THE ISOLATED

I've been off work with suspected C19 and I'd like to tell you that it's no 'walk in the park'. I'm late forties and always considered myself fairly fit and healthy so expected light symptoms.

2003.18 QUARRANTINE

After a couple of days feeling a bit 'off' I started coughing. Couple that with a slight elevation in temperature and a conversation with my supervisor at work means I'm effectively in isolation for next 14 days.

2003.12 OUTBREAK

It's worldwide news, everyone's talking about it. No, not 'Love Island' or whatever the current reality TV fad is, I'm of course talking about the outbreak of Coronavirus.
