Cooking, TV (both movies and news), internet, working on family projects
sleeping and repeat. Not the best of routines, but at least it's a routine. Need more walks though. Mental health is good so far.

Widders I meant to reply to you yesterday when you said the ash from your fire gets everywhere and you have to sweep the room down every couple of days, in your hair etc.

You're quite right that is worrying. You need to get the stove looked at. Ash shouldn't be escaping like that. Is it just ash or smoke? Obviously goes without saying smoke is a huge concern but so is ash. The ash embers produce CO too. I remember a news story a couple of years ago about someone who would drop the ash into a bucket at the back door and when it was full empty it. It was producing lethal amounts of CO in the house. Maybe you won't be able to get anyone to look at it now but be very careful. Maybe leave a window open a small bit or something. And regardless of all that, after coming through Covid-19, definitely not a good time for you to be inhaling such things. Take care of yourself!

Well, I'm cleansed, exfoliated and moisturised with expensive French skincare products and am now resplendent in my black attire. I shall now spend the rest of the day looming about mysteriously while attending to my various tasks. Now to medicate a pensioner and then a cat in the most broodily sophisticated manner possible.

Just Duolingo. Brush up and we can help each other improve.

Still stuck to the couch. I have eaten two slices of buttery toast, two slices of last nights pizza, the rest of the choice balls, drank two cups of coffee. I was far from scrawny to begin with but that gap will be getting wider and wider thanks to Covid 19 the fecker.
