I think before long I shall have to start making marks on the wall of my office.
Although I am not normally a gad about town sort of bloke the mere fact that I can’t even walk the dogs let alone go for a 20 minute jog is beginning to drive me a bit doolally, and I’ll be honest, shopping under these circumstances freaks me out a bit. I cannot imagine what it must be like for those who live in a flat or bedsit. Well, I can, as I used to live in one, but in those days I wasn’t confined to quarters as it were.
In the past fortnight only two aircraft have flown overhead. The second time the sound gave me such a start I quickly nipped outside just to see it fly over our property.
It’s so quiet that in the late afternoon I can hear the neighbour across the road on his treadmill!
Trying to stay my usual chirpy positive self is becoming more difficult as this lockdown begins to bite, and bite down hard. The reality of what’s going down is almost dystopian in nature and thinking of those who have next to nothing simply does my head in, and there’s no guarantee that those at the Ark’s spot won’t be in a similar situation in the not too distant future.
As you can tell, I’m feeling a bit down dans le bouche today.
Anyhow … moving on. Here’ s more 3 of the Best.
Salmon Fishing in The Yemen
A quirky, feel good romcom thing in which Ewan McGregor is not a Jedi and actually speaks with a soft Scottish accent. Delightful film and I highly recommend it to put a smile on the dial.
Brilliant and hilarious biting satire about the book publishing business from Sharpe.
Dontcha just love the afro, and suit?
Fashion nightmares aside, this is a brilliant jazz funk album. Here’s the track they released as a single from it.
Stay safe out there.
