    Had a couple of bits of buttered wholemeal toast to sustain me

      After loads more physical exertion, I finally have my new toy set up: an armchair!

      Even better: a reclining armchair, with massage function (which my back needs after getting it in here, assembling it, and shifting stuff around to make room), a heated back, and cupholders in the arms

      My old armchair, which I've had for about twenty-five years, had become utterly decrepit, sagging and with the foam of the cushions so compressed that just sitting in it put my knees at an angle that has gradually been causing actual physical damage to them. So I decided sod it, I'd splash out and get myself something half-decent for Christmas

      So I can now look like Martin Crane as I watch my favourite Christmas movies, such as Die Hard

        Oh, and pockets for remotes, glasses cases, and so on: a large one on each side, and one on the front of each arm

          New Christmas episode of Inside the Factory just dropped

          It's about Christmas cards. I would have thought they were made at a printer's shop, not a factory, but I daresay it'll educate me

            Last of the boxes has been carved up with the Stanley knife and added to the spare recycling bin I commandeered earlier, the rest of the recycling has been crammed into our bin, and I've trundled all the full bins that were out the back

            As I was returning from putting the last one out, I ran into my upstairs neighbour. He told me there were police (or those look-like-police support people) out there the other day who checked that he was legit, and told him they're passing through about four times a day just to keep an eye on things back there. So it looks like my email the other week has had some effect

              Late lunch: Scotch broth and multiseed bread

                So: I have my new chair; I've wrapped all the presents; I don't need to go to the shops (not counting getting LFTs from the chemist if they have any); I'm not expecting any further deliveries; and I ought to be avoiding everybody and everywhere anyway, to avoid spreading the plague on Christmas Day.

                Which, taken all in all, seems to me to be sufficient grounds for opening the Family Circle biscuits and declaring Christmas begun

                  One of my nieces in London has tested positive for covid

                  One of her friends tested positive a few days ago, so it was almost inevitable really

                    Anyone else having problems with Freeview? Loads of channels, including BBC, unavailable round here. Due to "high pressure" apparently. Eh?

                    Good thing I've also got Freesat and the net.
