    Walk walked in the pleasant greyness.

    I'm amazed I found sufficient motivation to bother.

      The binmen have decided a 6.30am pick up is not needed so are doing the bins now.

      I've been told by various weather apps that it is between 19 and 23 degrees. With a high of 28 degrees. I need to pour water on some plant roots before the sun gets to them.

      Currently in a meeting which people keep joining and leaving.
      7:15 am they decided to pick up the neighbours skip. Obviously the junior driver it sounded like a baby's rattle.

        The recycle binmen are here.

        The refuse men came around 9am.

        They are all sunburnt.

                Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

                It's clouded over out now, though not in an ominous way. And there's a nice breeze, so it was quite pleasant out there

                  I'm hoping for a further month and a bit after that, just to ensure I never have to go into the office at all before this gig finishes at the end of August

                      They want us all back 3 days a week apparently. Strange there weren't enough parking spaces before we closed the other offices not sure where they are magicking the others from. The big problem is they haven't actually worked out what they lost due to lockdown or how to fix it.

                      Apparently new staff didn't meet the right people and informal discussions are not taking place in the cafeteria. I may be unreasonable but the first is down to their managers the second is a worry if you actually only run your business at the water cooler.
