Message from the Prime Minister that essentially puts the UK in lockdown for the next three weeks.
Ventured outside for a walk late this afternoon to try and alleviate the cabin fever. Everything was a lot quieter than normal, there is an eery feeling around the streets but I still saw pockets of young people gathered together. Not as bad as London appears to be, but still baffling.
Spent the whole day indoors today, in a kind of self-isolation. Noticed yesterday I was coughing a bit so made a precautionary decision to stay home alone. Started to take my inhaler yesterday and it seems to be working, coughed a lot less today so probably not the dreaded virus.
Decided to try and get going on my blog again. Been a long time, and the dreaded virus has caused me to want to find some way of communicating with the outside world while I work from home.

I’ve wanted to read this for a while and finally got around to it. Whilst it’s a very sad story, there are moments of hope in there. We must all pray that nothing like it ever happens again.

2019 has been one of the hardest of my life. But I wish you all on micro.blog a very happy Christmas. I’ve been quiet, but you’ve helped keep me a little bit sane the last few months.

Rovi for birthday dinner in London
First day at my new job today. I’m leaving the freelance life to join a team at a well known organisation in the UK. Looking forward to it, but inevitably a bit apprehensive this morning. First time I won’t be my own boss for 7 years.
Realising how important it is that I make time to read fiction. Getting into a good novel really calms my mind and stops it running away with itself. Finished reading The Hobbit today and just started the latest Red Rising.
It’s been a summer of cricket, great finish to the test match. Hats off to Ben Stokes 🏏
