    Walking has been the main non-work activity of late:

    • Circuit of Shipley Country Park - 3 miles. Chilly, although little snow on the ground. Some parts of the water table were making a break for the surface, resulting in mud.
    • Matlock to Clay Cross (specifically, to the pub if it were …

    • Winter is here, now with more snow now that I have moved to higher ground. Nothing mega, the most that's fallen is an inch or so, business was therefore unaffected.
    • Apparently, clearing snow off your car before driving it is such an arduous task so you just leave it on …

    New year, same old shit unfortunately. I'm applying the La Linea numbering method here, hence why the post number has jumped up by 48 places. You'll get over it.

    • The government decided to implement another shutdown. Because the first two worked so well. Guess I'll just have to hide in …

    So there's another year gone. Pretty crap one and all. I aimed to post weekly and managed twelve posts, so averaged monthly. Could have been worse.

    To round off happenings:

    • Another year older. Normally I'd go to the pub on the day and then do something party-like in February or …

    • Following Doc Rob's repairs, the hedge is now fully pruned. This will hopefully keep the letting agent happy for a few months. Maybe, in exchange, they will come and paint my hallway?
    • Twitter, or more precisely the users of Twitter, began to annoy me. Again. I have therefore semi-abandoned my …

    I've been slack of late. This post has been sat in drafts waiting for me to finish it but I've not been bothered to do so. Here goes a catch up, then.

    • There was a beer festival at a neighbouring establishment ("pox-secure" by being pre-book only, two hours max per …

    • You know how I mentioned about the free money piss-take in Episode 25-38? Guess who isn't coming back now that the gib-me-dats are finishing‽
    • Autumn is approaching. The central heating is starting to kick in in the mornings, and as a Norfern Munkey, I don't keep it set very high …

    • In another round of "throw some shit and see what sticks", the pub now has to close at 22:00. As well as robbing me of a couple of hours of wage a week, it won't make any difference to the pox. Particularly if everyone is milling the streets looking …

    Another round up because of slack. I'll skim over the main points, with some breakout posts for particular bits coming in the near future.

    • The pub has re-opened, so getting some extra shifts in through the combination of some other staff leaving and the rest not coming back off furlough …

    Another period of slack. A round-up then.

    • I've moved, and have upgraded to a house somewhere in the Sheffield postcode area. I'd been looking at moving before all the coronabollox kicked off - indeed I should have moved the week that all the restrictions were imposed - as I wanted more space …
