It's going to fade out so slowly that I don't think we'll even notice the final lifting.  I'm planning a wholly unnecessary trip out at the end of the week but will be doing it via minor roads where police won't be able to do the pull over stations.

If you mean permanent change resolutions then none.

I suppose I iwll be going more but I was planning that anyway.  I have a twenty mile circular walk with a Wetherspoons at the mid-point which I was planning to do regularly and have a big breakfast in 'Spoons.

Resolved to not be concerned about living a long life

Resolved to give even less of a fuck about anyone

Resolved to travel more if travel is possible

 

 

 

Don't think you mean it as such but they could actually be construed as positives.  As in living each day to the fullest type shit.  Also giving zero fucks about what other people think can only be good and something I'm far off but do see as a sort of grail.

I can be pretty recient if I need ie don't give up secrets easily keep clear confidences in mind etc.  I do love having a bit of a prod at other people to see debate or reaction.  Probably always been that way to an extent.

Well this thing and especially the political climate has drummed into me the importance of being extra careful in that regard.  Even though I have no clear political viewpoint and find it confusing at best of times (sometimes reading here one viewpoint makes sense then a few minutes later a completely opposing one also adds up - questioning if I'm bipolar if that is the correct term 😅). I still sometimes end up opening my mouth at wrong times.  

The other day at work I said something along the lines of "oh trump is not 100% bad" and was immediately berated by the person I was speaking to.  I back pedaled a bit then later in the day said something about negative about Trump in front of him.... Hopefully in order to erase the original memory of me being pro trump (however much that would be untrue or completely miscontrued from the original context)

Anyway the above I'll pay more attention to, and probably trust the media less than before.

Putting more into my pension thereby paying less tax. I'll be fucked if I'm paying for the aftermath of this shit show.

And in case that is restricted even further I suggest bookmarking the link below:

 

How the schemes compare for Income Tax relief

Didn't they tell you? You will have to wait until you can't wipe your own arse before you can retire.

I can relate to what a lot of folk are saying here.

The lockdown has brought into focus what's important - essentially removing the hobby of 'consumption' has a lot of people incredibly bored but I'm as happy as ever without bars, cafes, shops, cinemas ect... as I actually have hobbies and interests I can pursue that cost virtually nothing (admittidly because I've already spent the money aquring the gear e.g. guitars that cost virtually nothing to maintain).

It's also shown me how if times got really tough and I had to reign in speinding in a big way, I could do that and still be pretty happy. Which hopefully won't have to happen but it's good to know.

I'd like to work from home more; I'm making some effort to delivering a project for someone I'm working directly with several ranks more senior than my boss and I'm hoping if I can get that done to a good standard I'll have more clout post-lockdown to work from home more.

The endless waste of tax money has strengthend my reserve not to work more than I need to, or at the very least try and keep myself in a position where I'm only doing work I really enjoy. If I can sorted with a house I might even do a @Frank Hovis and go down to 'no tax' by maxing pension contributions.

I confess I've become even more of a misanthrope however seeing how the masses have responded to this; particuarly the clappy clappy and Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Whilst it would be great to find a woman who has a similar outlook on life, is a healthy weight, is not concerned with competing for status points on Facebook, and fucks like an absolute champ....I'm not gonna fall to bits if I don't find that ;)

I am also going to get some new friends or just avoid people. I have lost respect for a few people that I know. Two reasons: for ignoring me in February when I pointed out that wuflu is coming here and they were still socialising; and for over reacting now, sticking to all ridiculous guidelines and completely avoiding any offline social contact.

Yeah I realized how fucking dull many people that I'm aquaintances are, as the conversations that have gone around since the lockdown seem to amount to nothing more than Orange Man Bad Trump hating comments with everyone patting themselves on the back as if they're all so much more capable than Trump (they aren't) and asking if everyone was out doing their compulsory clapping every Thursday.

Yawn.
