There´s two ways being incognito can work, both very different to the “before times” of freedom and jest when we all took EVERYTHING for granted. Ah yes, those were the days, carefree groups of humans could stand or sit together without doing a mathematical equation, personal space wasn´t a problem, and fiddling with a mask…… Continue reading Incognito
I forgot to tell you! 21st was our wedding anniversary and 25th was my birthday. Oh wait, was it August? How time flies when going out may kill you.Since lockdown it´s like we´ve all been programmed to recede, even now with some things open, nobody`s going out unless necessary.

In these difficult times, it´s important to have something to do. So I planted a cactus in a pot and sat it on the drive because it was an exciting experiment.

Over the past couple of days I´ve become best friends with the toilet bowl. A brief, (excuse pun) amount…… Continue reading A blog post from the toilet
The underling of Waitrose International is “Iceland” no not the country, it´s a supermarket that sells overpriced frozen food with a hint of carboard taste. There´s other “not frozen” things there, so being as it´s the nearest shop to us it comes in handy for the likes of milk, bread, booze, and cleaning products.Safety: As…… Continue reading Waitrose International, safety VS irresponsibility
