1st lockdown I lost a bit (of weight), 2nd and 3rd I gained it all back and more ... but not 28 lbs.  That's not to say much - I need to lose at least double that to get to anything close to a sensible weight.  Weight aside, things are fine.  I also nearly wrote 10 words!

Got to lose this weight I put on during lockdown. I'm 28 lbs heavier than I was this time last year  :o

Started a 5/2 fasting diet today and hit the gym for the first time since November yesterday morning. Aching a bit today, and so hungry I can't think straight. How's everybody else doing?

Hi Geoff, good to see you're still ticking along and getting things done. :)

I had to go out to a breakdown on Saturday at a farm. The manager was right in my face, no mask, trying to get his hands on what I was doing whilst telling me another guy on the farm had just come down with the virus and how he'd been in a farm meeting with him on the Monday. I said to him that he should be isolating. He said, "Oh yes, I am -- my wife won't even let me go into town."  :idiot:

Here's to a better year.
Good that you guys have survived so far. Me too, see. Amazing really because we moved to a new (old) house to be closer to daughter and her fledglings. The house needed renovations to make it safer and we're too ancient to wait for post-Covid to have it as we want to live. Hence workmen have been in for quotes, measuring and doing. Of course we've been careful with masks, cleaning, washing, social distancing etc but even so. Luckily the cycling I do between reading and writing is a solitary, isolating experience.

Done some writing - mainly the third book in the Flying Crooked scifi series and a few shorts but less than half I used to do.

Hi Russell, nice to see you dropping by. Our new year's celebration consisted of getting merry at home, shouting, "Fuck you, 2020!" loudly, playing Auld Lang Syne at midnight then hitting the sack. It was at least memorable.

My son's live in girlfriend has just gone back to work after having covid, but so far he hasn't got it, despite sleeping in the same bed throughout, etc. My bookkeeper has it and she's really bad, on the verge of being hospitalised last time I knew. It has all been like a big holiday in the south west up until now, so it's coming as quite a shock to a lot of people to actually know people who have it. I think your daughter is right that immunity only lasts three months -- it's my pet theory that that's why the govt have put the vaccine doses twelve weeks apart now. I reckon everybody will have to keep having them every twelve weeks for the foreseeable future.

That's unless one of the varieties mutate again and we're back to square one. The thing is, unless we make sure all the poor countries get vaccines, this will rumble on indefinitely.

Anyhoo, could be worse. Stay safe, everybody  :)

Thanks Ed, and the same to you and everyone else.  It was a quiet one for us, although it's normally quiet.  My daughter decided it was best to stay 'up North-ish' (Sheffield) before us southerners were promoted to Tier 4. She has had Covid (quite mild) so I thought she'd be pretty safe as a visitor, however, she had it over 90 days ago and in her part of the NHS at least, that's how long they think your immunity lasts.  Not written anything on 2020 but, as always at this time of year, I kinda hope I can find a reason to write again in 2021.

All the best everyone / anyone who drops by.

Russell

Yeah, it's funny how it comes and goes. Back when I had a boring job, I'd think about the story I was working on in the evenings and couldn't wait to get home and write it. Haven't felt like that in a very long time. Quite enjoyed that one or two flashes I did back in the summer, first one especially, but that didn't last long. I don't think I even finished the second one.

Just to warn everybody who's still dropping by now and then -- I'm going to have a go at updating the theme at some point, as the one we use as a default is now out of date and defunct, so if you turn up one day and it looks radically different, that's what it'll be.

No, it was a new story, Ed. I was determined to write something complete to see if I still had it in me. Have had some very nice comments on it, some exceptional comments, actually. But I'm not sure it's answered the question...

Managed a holiday at Center Parcs a few weeks ago, thanks Jerry. Had great weather for a change, and covid restrictions didn't impact us very much at all. Really enjoyed it and really needed it.

Del -- good story. Good marketing, too. Are you sure you haven't put it through the crit group before? I thought I remembered it half way through  :scratch:
