[05/02/20]   Lockdown Day 40.

The weekend has arrived.

Washing and ironing, household chores. The usual thing Lock down duties.

I'm taking this as advanced training for retirement.

Although with having 2 daughters, I'll be 94 by then.

Saw this on the way, G A Lomas and Sons. Was this Dinky Lomas's dad?

Exercise today was a fantastic walk. Into Huntley Woods, through Boundary, down to Commonside and then back into Cheadle.

Kettle's on.

Needs to cool before being turned out.

[05/01/20]   Lockdown Day 39.

Nearly the weekend.....

The usual domestic day today. If it stays dry then gardening, if not there's plenty to do indoors.

Got a recipe for banana bread from one of Jo's friends that I might try.

Clout Monster

Keep clean.

Lockdown lingo - are you fully conversant with the new terminology?

*Coronacoaster*
The ups and downs of your mood during the pandemic. You’re loving lockdown one minute but suddenly weepy with anxiety the next. It truly is “an emotional coronacoaster”.

*Quarantinis*
Experimental cocktails mixed from whatever random ingredients you have left in the house. The boozy equivalent of a store cupboard supper. Southern Comfort and Ribena quarantini with a glacé cherry garnish, anyone? These are sipped at “locktail hour”, ie. wine o’clock during lockdown, which seems to be creeping earlier with each passing week.

*Blue Skype thinking*
A work brainstorming session which takes place over a videoconferencing app. Such meetings might also be termed a “Zoomposium”. Naturally, they are to be avoided if at all possible.

*Le Creuset wrist*
It’s the new “avocado hand” - an aching arm after taking one’s best saucepan outside to bang during the weekly ‘Clap For Carers.’ It might be heavy but you’re keen to impress the neighbours with your high-quality kitchenware.

*Coronials*
As opposed to millennials, this refers to the future generation of babies conceived or born during coronavirus quarantine. They might also become known as “Generation C” or, more spookily, “Children of the Quarn”.

*Furlough Merlot*
Wine consumed in an attempt to relieve the frustration of not working. Also known as “bored-eaux” or “cabernet tedium”.

*Coronadose*
An overdose of bad news from consuming too much media during a time of crisis. Can result in a panicdemic.

*The elephant in the Zoom*
The glaring issue during a videoconferencing call that nobody feels able to mention. E.g. one participant has dramatically put on weight, suddenly sprouted terrible facial hair or has a worryingly messy house visible in the background.

*Quentin Quarantino*
An attention-seeker using their time in lockdown to make amateur films which they’re convinced are funnier and cleverer than they actually are.

*Covidiot* or *Wuhan-ker*
One who ignores public health advice or behaves with reckless disregard for the safety of others can be said to display “covidiocy” or be “covidiotic”. Also called a “lockclown” or even a “Wuhan-ker”.

*Goutbreak*
The sudden fear that you’ve consumed so much wine, cheese, home-made cake and Easter chocolate in lockdown that your ankles are swelling up like a medieval king’s.

*Antisocial distancing*
Using health precautions as an excuse for snubbing neighbours and generally ignoring people you find irritating.

*Coughin’ dodger*
Someone so alarmed by an innocuous splutter or throat-clear that they back away in terror.

*Mask-ara*
Extra make-up applied to "make one's eyes pop" before venturing out in public wearing a face mask.

*Covid-10*
The 10lbs in weight that we’re all gaining from comfort-eating and comfort-drinking. Also known as “fattening the curve”.

…and finally, finally: One sentence to sum up 2020, so far: At one point this week, 1 loo roll was worth more than a barrel of crude oil!

[04/30/20]   Lockdown Day 38.

More indoor jobs today. Knowing that we will still be in lockdown for at least one more week, I should just have enough time to polish Jo's boots and shoes.

Tomatoes coming on nicely.

Toyah

Lockdown Day 37.

Raining again, so not much gardening to do.

Housework, I suppose.

Meanwhile, back at Toyah's....

The Easter bees are buzzing in an English country garden #lockdown 🐝 💐🐝 #easter #bees #toyahwillcox #robertfripp

I am looking forward to seeing some of the DIY efforts.

We will be back soon ,,, ok soon ish !!! We miss you more !!!!

Toyah

Mad as a box of frogs, the pair of them.

I do like King Crimson though.

I'm not sure if they still live in Pershore?

[04/28/20]   Lockdown Day 36.

Rain falling, so that's one less job to do. Indoor duties today I think.

The sunny weather has been glorious, although it does do funny things to you. Jo has told me to stop behaving like a flamingo, so I decided to put my foot down.

[04/27/20]   Lockdown Day 35.

Drive to Buxton to check on the shop.

News hours at the Post Office sorting depot, so can't get my post.

Back home to ironing.

Life in the slow lane continues.

Listening to Sounds of the 70s in the garden and have found a cloud that looks like Shrek.

Lockdown Day 34.

Sunday. Day of rest.

This was last night's sunset.

Jo's new office.

[04/25/20]   Another book finished ( there wasn't much left ) whilst sat in the garden.

So far, I've got through,

Agent Running In The Field by John le Carre,

February's Son by Alan Parks,

All That's Dead by Stuart Macbride,

False Value by Ben Aaronovitch, and

Joe Country by Mick Herron.

About to start The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver. Some of these have been provided by the magnificent monthly subscription service Books and Beer.

Every month you get a delivery of books and Beer.

Marvellous.

Washed both the cars again.

Relaxing afternoon pottering around the garden, I think.

[04/25/20]   Lockdown Day 33.

The weekend. A welcome rest after a hard week at....err

Standard duties for today. Housework, gardening etc etc.

[04/24/20]   Lockdown Day 32.

Not sure what to do with today.

We're having a quote for the hall,stairs and landing as the walls are a real mess.

First quote we got, a chap came in and said "A thing of beauty is a joy forever " and then left.

Strange.

Filthy horses

And here's a joke that one if Jo's very respectable customers from @JoBoothDesign sent her.

Lockdown Day 31.

Another gloriously sunny day ahead. Clean the cars today.

May have to brave the supermarket, as things are a little Old Mother Hubbard at the moment.

Meanwhile, here's a photo the children sent me.

Enjoyed sitting outside, reading and watching the birds go by.

[04/22/20]   Lockdown Day 30.

Mow neighbour's lawns, finish off the ironing.

After that, I quite like the idea of sitting in the sunshine and reading my book.

I'm not saying that I'm missing work, but having just cut the lawns I asked if it wanted something for the weekend.
