I threw my office chair in the back of the car and took it home. 

I was quote proud of how I was adjusting to working from home.

My wife said it was less impressive as I had been working from home for over a year.

We already had a decent office chair at home but my wife claimed it as she was also working from home. So I raided the office for mine.

I’ve wondered in the past about how good I would be at working out how long had passed if I was stuck in a cave or somewhere away from daylight. I’m finding out that I would be useless and that’s even with the ability to stare out into the garden.

I have fairly bad tinnitus at times, made worse by silence. My hearing aid helps massively as it provides noise context for me that distracts my brain from the tinnitus.

I was on calls from 0830-1430 non-stop and some were quite loud with strong opinions. I came off at 1430 into silence, I had my hearing aid out as I was using headphones and it sounded like I was in a church bell-tower ringing away.

Well, the day I've long been dreading has finally arrived. It's always been in the back of my mind that this day would inevitably come, and I thought I had formulated a plan of how I would cope with it. Now it's happened, I realise that no amount of planning can prepare you for the feeling of emptiness and despair that is now sitting in the pit of my stomach.

All I can do is keep going, but I just feel like spending weeks in bed, avoiding social media, TV, radio - all contact, in fact - in case some innocent tiny snippet I read, hear or see brings it all back, and I start spiralling downwards again.

I know that hundreds of thousands - possibly even millions - of people around the world are experiencing the same pain, the same feeling of helplessness that I'm experiencing right now, and I wonder if they're handling it any better than I am.

So, how is everyone else dealing with the news that Genesis have reformed?

AFAIK, Peter Gabriel is not involved, therefore it is not really Genesis.

HTH.

This sounds ridiculous, but as a long term work-from-home-er, make sure the windows are clean and open for a good chunk of the day. It does make a difference.

Not a point I want to get into discussion on so here rather than the COVID threads.

My lunch 1230-1300.

1230, told another doctor in our patch has died of confirmed COVID-19.
1250, James O'Brien radio show on in the background where he read out all the health and social care workers he knows have died with COVID-19.
1300, I've just finished a meeting where we were discussing children & young persons' palliative care guidance for COVID-19

The year 2020 can go fornicate itself.

If COVID-19 hadn't happened, I'd be in Sorrento in Italy on holiday right now. Quite probably at this time of day sitting in the main road in town with a coffee and a book.

It's not warmed up, or done yet. Everyone watch your backs. 2020 isn't over yet......... you have been warned.

Dear Diary.

I got a call from the council today about my Section21 removal, and it seems they are as desperate to move me as I am to move out. All I get is the slamming of the partition door, the noise of the lift, that i have to pay for, despite being on the ground floor, and the cancer of my neighbour to remind me why I live facing the sea. I got some milk from a friend, thank you go. But i cant move until the organisations get themselves sorted. I have a nice flat lined up. I want to move. The letting agents want me to move in so bad it hasn't been on Zoopla yet. I have 30 boxes that i have scrounged  from Lidl & my local offie, and I have a man-with-a-van on stand by. The Landlord has held it back for me. I even have the backing of my local MP  Sally-Ann Hart (c). I am at my witz end. I want to move, my Landlord wants me to move, my future landlord hasn't had a tenant for 4 months, so.....

Deep breaths Bleep.

If I went out and screamed like a wolf, i would get sectioned, but i might get that place.

This morning, I decided to reset my "ignored" list on here in an act of good will.

One person didn't last 30 minutes, and no, it wasn't Saintslass 😉

I have been repairing my garden bench today and have just been painting the ironwork a nice shade of British racing green. Inevitably there were a couple of little drips. One of my cats just walked in a few minutes ago. It has a green paw....
