Lockdown no.3

Hi. Greetings from England and indeed the UK’s lockdown no.3. I predicted a long time ago we would have a total of 7 lockdowns in the end. “7??!” I hear you cry, yes 7 my friends.

Very quick blog!

Frustration

Hi. I’ve had a frustrating day today. Not my best in lockdown. I’ll probably keep it quite brief tonight. I spent over an hour trying to log in to work from home this morning and eventually gave up and went into the office. The laptop wanted to do updates, I hate updates. Then it justContinue reading “Frustration”
