We don't watch anything now on normal TV so have no punctuation of TV. Although sewing bee might have started well probably watch on catch up

I managed to compete the garden the week before lockdown.

With the exception of a potted wisteria and some potted herbs there is nothing alive in it.

Started last night. It was the gayest thing I've ever seen on TV. And I include gay porn in that.

Every ad break has a government "stay home" ad in it, and the private sector ones have morphed into versions of same.

Need some lockdown activities that don't involve alcoholism.

It's all a bit groundhog day.

I run a video (Microsoft's Wildlife) in a loop on Windows Media player.

Stops the pc going to sleep and shows me online all day 🙊

I've took screenshots of the network speed I get as the company is an absolute cheapskate.

Max 0.05% of 1 Gbps but averages 3.36Mbps so even though my broadband is fine at 126.56MBps I can only draw data down from the companies shit servers at 420KB/s.

Then they must insist on scanning everything so opening a pdf off an email or their shared drive can take 10 minutes or more, even for ones as small as 60KB.

I spend most of my day waiting for stuff or being startled when they all come at once like buses when I've drifted on to something else.

In the meantime, my own £240 Linux desktop sat right next to their £3500 power PC is running 20 times faster whilst I piss around on here and generally keep myself amused while I wait for their stuff to do something.

I'm still busy enough.

Still doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day by the time I've done a bit of work, done housework, cooking blah blah blah.

My major victory this week has been having the guts to say "no" to someone who tried to give me someone else's work to do because the someone else is a mixture of lazy and incompetent. To my surprise the person then fucked off without an argument. Felt good.

I know I had a list of 20 things I wanted to do - practice guitar, make sourdough, do some oil painting and here we are a month later not had time to do any of them really. I think I'm going to have to wait until I retire.

I don't know whether it's just bad time management on my part (too much dosbods?) but I don't get these people on Facebook ect....who give the impression that they're sat fot 16 hours a day with nothing to do.

The basic life stuff for me is:

- work (admittidly not a full 8 hour day at the mo)

- a walk for about an hour a day

- exercise with weights 3 times a week

- cooking 4 meals a day, washing up ect

- other housework

All of that fills up a good chunk of the week.

Well you can cross off all of those for the 16 hour a day Facebookers ;)

I would love to know what these sorts are eating right now that McDonalds and Dominos are shut. Actually on second thoughts maybe not...

Even though I am in lockdown I still have to get most of my DIY/house stuff done at the weekends. Strange!

What's wrong with engaging on DOSBODS for 14 hrs a day with a bit of time left for bathroom/meal breaks? 

That's my day plus an evening dog walk and then a quick look at Sky News.  (With LBC radio on most of the day in the background.)

I might do some housework if I happen to see something unavoidable is required. But with the lockdown, (and no visitors), most stuff can safely be ignored, as long as things look vaguely tidy on the surface?

So, of course, I don't know what day it is ... unless James O'Brien's "Mystery Hour" is on LBC (which is Thursdays) which I really hate. (Hmm, I don't like the rest of his show either but MH seems to annoy me just that bit more!)

Do what?

Every third vehicle on the road is a Domino's delivery driver at present.  Though not, I hasten to add, in my street where I have enver seen one.

They must be making a fortune.
