I think stuff like facebook groups and some of the issues that were going on (was still away myself so can't comment) that claimed most of the regulars.

At least you have a job, even if I cant have a schedule that dont allow me to just switch off.

Today I can see my previous employer is looking for new staff.
I have tried contacting them in the past about what my status is with them with no response. Feck em, there whole "You pick when you work" thing wasn't,
Id be looking but traveling right now is a bit of a prig

We went to the Doggo Beach this Morning.

Later this Afternoon I filmed what I have bought over the last few days.

Going to Work tonight for an hour.

I installed Wolfenstein 2 XBOX One Game as well as I reinstalled the Micro Machines XBOX One Game.

It's currently 35° outside, and it's 5PM!

Today I had my mandatory phone call check up from the Job centre.
its been rebooked a about 5 times from the last one.
New person so I had to explain my situation again, with the new thing of waiting till this covid smeg is over or a decent vaccine is out so I dont have to work in a facemask.
He suggested "Retraining in IT" as they have courses available, said "Im already qualified in that and have been since 98, but dont want to work in IT as I cant get my head round programming" Also that I cant really do online learning, I get distracted at home way to easily
Computers have changed a we bit since then...............

Apparently, because I'm old now (over 50) I now qualify for a Flu vaccination - well, according to the woman from the doctors that called today! Never had one before, so something to tick off the list I've not got :D

Today, dropped my bike off to be fixed. Hoping they can sort it out, then found out my local Evans cycles is moving in a few weeks

Also sorted out a new TV for my mum, got some of the other members of the family to chip in. The old one is really a old "Teknica" one that is a load of rubbish
It aint a fancy 4k 50odd" blah blah type, would take to long to set up, just a 32" HD Smart TV
Was going to get it delivered to hers under my name to be funny but no idea if she will be in.

Im also finishing more projects.................
the feckin depressed "Whats the point" mood seems to of fecked off again

I'm entitled to one too now as I'm an extra special boy, they probably would rather not know my whereabouts tbh.

Getting issues again so have been awake since 6pmish yesterday, little bit of shakes but nothing too servre,my wrist however still seems to want to be given the Evil Dead treatment.
