I miss my early Sunday evening pints. Supping a bottle of Canadian here waiting on the roast spuds to finish.

I feel the touch of a headache coming on. Hopefully it's just too much screen time. Hope it's not the virus. I would hate to die before I write my kiss and tell memoirs.

He is single but he is lying about being male, Mexican and owning a croissant guzzling dog.


But hey. I do eat apples.

Could be worse,I know someone who is still in bed but has made 5 trips to the kitchen, coffee made on each trip accompanied twice by apple tart, twice by a single Malted Milk biccie and once by a handful of Smarties from one of the big tube.🙄

During the Summer hurling season I'd book the odd Monday off so I'd have no commute and nothing better than heading to the local to watch a hurling match, downing a few pints and enjoying the craic, home for dinner by 8, great day out. Hopefully we'll have that again once all this passes.

Im doing all but the tv, but thatd spend a good amount of ths extra time if only I could enjoy it. I cannot sit and watch it alone, and its hard to find anything I like. The old Irish clip you posted looked interesting but again I couldnt sit and watch.

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!
Thanks. Cant work out if its purely from when logs are topped up and the embers and ash are disturbed, plus the emptying process every day...or if its leaking out invisibly all the time. I added new glass ropeto seal the glass inthe doors a while back. One side broke recently but the ash everywhere has been a problem for a long time before that.

I've gone the other way, my tastes have gradually un-gothed. Still think black is elegant, though.

Doing a bit of catch up on office stuff. Take my head off worrying about stuff. Going to make a nice dinner. Lots of fresh veg, potatoes and fish. And maybe a couple of glasses of red - havent had red in years.

I have really appreciated having the radio on in the background the last few weeks.

Just one thing though.

Like a Young Winowna Ryder......I want this to be blasted into orbit and then some so it never returns.
