    Not entirely convinced your trip to London on Thursday is responsible for you testing positive today.
    It can show up within two days. And I tested negative immediately before setting off on Thursday morning…

    Also, I hadn't been anywhere else that I recall earlier in the week, like in shops or what have you.

      Still rainy out

      And there's an Antipodean Zoom call in the morning, so I'll be getting an early night - though I probably would have anyway


        Quite a breeze out there with a light smattering of rain.

        Have to get up early tomorrow to take HWMBO to the airport as the tube doesn't run early enough. Early night imminent.


          I finished off an old episode of Police Interceptors whilst dining, but other than that I didn't bother with any telly

          I neglected to record last night's major motion picture premiere: The Running Man (1987). It was pretty good, though it seems 2017 was expected to be identical to the mid-1980s in terms of fashion and such

          Better get to sleep now, and hope the disease doesn't get any worse overnight

          Goodnight all


            Morning all

            Dull, overcast but dry. Currently 11 degrees with a high of 18 expected. Rain forecast off and on all day. Barometer down to 1015 mBar.

            Taking HWMBO to Heathrow then I'll go back to bed for a couple of hours before driving down to see the parentals.


              Morning all

              A bit breezy out.

                Morning denizens

                Sunny start out, currently 13°C and expected t reach 19° later. But it's also supposed to be "mostly cloudy"

                Barometers are distinctly down at 1007/1015mB

                Covid is being annoying. Still mainly a sore throat and feeling very run down





                  Blue sky in parts.

                  Cool at 19.2 deg in here.

                  When the fun stops, STOP.


                    Antipodean Zoom call done


                      I haven't got much of an appetite, but I persuaded myself to have some chicken and barley soup, and I feel a little better for it. At least I can still taste things
