What is there to say really? I’m immunocompromised so have been indoors the whole week.
Not that being indoors all week is *that* different from any other week. A few less trips to the river, Sainsbury’s and the local coffee shop – because there’s nothing to buy anyway. Eve embarked on a massive fetch quest for some additional fresh veg yesterday and this is what the supermarket looked like:
Some guy tried to sell her a packet of 6 bog roll for 12 quid in our semi local corner shop. We told everyone about it in the local chat group and now no one is going to shop there ever again.
We were supposed to be on holiday this week, as it didn’t’ happen after I finished writing last weeks post, we went out and bought a gaming laptop. (Acer Nitro 5). I think at some point I’ll double the ram it has but for now tho, playing games on a dedicated machine is really nice. Eve spent all week playing sims 4 and a buttery smooth Cities Skylines (for the first time ever). I’ve been playing Assassins creed black flag on the switch. It’s not very good. The whole game is an endless collect’em up. I know people who worked on it as producers so won’t slag it off too much.
The Clivia my Mum and Dad took a cutting of and then bought us over the winter flowered this week. It’s brought a lot of cheer to the kitchen windowsill
Apart form that, not really any news. I’ve written over 3k words on the current moment. It needs a hard edit, but I really want to post it asap in the long reads section of my site.

Lyra’s album Fountain came out yesterday. I’m on my second listen. She played me some of it off her phone last year. But hearing it finished is amazing. As a type up this post, I’m just having a chat with her about the launch and how well its gone.
