That is the main thing that puts me off working in London. Too much travel.
Enjoy some downtime!
May the Force be with you.

Totally bemused today. Took some photos on my new camera, uploaded them onto the computer and now can't find them anywhere. They seem to be saving in a different format to my other camera, and its driving me a little bit mad. (No doubt this is operator error!!)
May the Force be with you.

Been twice this week too - Monday and today - back home 7 on Monday and 8 today. Tomorrow is Swindon - only a 90minute drive and Friday Castle Cary - about 2 1/2 hours each way. Deep Joy.

And then London Monday & Tuesday and the week after 7 days in London - but I've booked an apartment rather than hotels so at least I can relax a bit in the evening.

Hopefully after the first week of December it will be a bit quieter.

My Mum had a letter from the Land Registry confirming receipt of my Dad's death certificate a few days ago. All good.

She then got two letters yesterday from them, the one was to her and was just confirming that she had asked for the transfer of ownership. Again, all good.

The second letter from them, was actually to Dad - though she never noticed until after opening it. And it was asking him to confirm the transfer. Bit difficult as he is a pile of ashes in an Urn!

Mum was going to ring them and fire in a round of F's - but I said I would do it instead to save her getting upset again!

It will probably be an automatic system, but still.

Yesterday actually!

Got pinged by the Covid App to self isolate until the 29th December. Working back that is a contact date of last Friday (18th) and apart from a run up and down the motorway to the mother in laws - have been no where. The day before I worked at home and didn't go out, the day after I went to town to the shops - but saw no one for more than a few minutes and not close- and masked up anyway!

So hopefully will not be a problem!

As it happens, a couple of months ago, I know I've been in the same room as someone who had covid not long afterwards and didn't catch it (I was wearing a face visor as was he)

My daughter had 3 calls on her  answer machine telling her to self isolate because of a contact and they were puzzled. then the next day they had another call saying to disregard - wrong number!

Well what do you expect, as the person running text and trace is Dido "TalkTalk Data Breach" Harding in charge of Contact Tracing, should you be worried? I would be.  >:(

She resigned from Talk Talk and walked away with £2,000,000. Not bad for abject failure and refused to take any responsibility.  >:(
