Finished reading: Feet Of Clay by Terry Pratchett ★★★★1/2 Another great City Watch book and another plot to remove Lord Vetinari but with Golems. I loved the developing friendship between Angua and Cheery/Cheri Littlebottom and the introduction of Dorfl the free-thinking Golem.

I’ve been listening to more classical music lately and while Spotify has a decent catalogue it isn’t very well organised. It’s hard to find stuff.

I found a voucher/code for three full months of the top tier of Primephonic which looks much nicer and can be connected to Sonos so I’ll try this and see if I use it enough to pay the full monthly fee.

Yesterday was the first day that I started to feel genuine anxiety about the coronavirus. I’m not anxious about myself but about the people I could pass it on to.

We’ve moved into a period where we have to be conscious of everything we touch and everyone we meet. I just want to lock myself up but that’s not possible.

Day one of my attempt at social distancing. Anxiety levels are still high but I don’t know of any local virus infections yet. It does feel like the quiet before the storm though.

I was still at work yesterday but spoke to my coordinator about my concerns and he admitted I had a case for staying away. I phoned in today saying I was going to be off for the immediate future. Special new rules were introduced by my employers with regards to special leave and the fact that I’ve had a cough for a few weeks should make me eligible for full sick payment.

It’s a beautiful spring day here. People are out walking dogs. The sports centre down the road looks busy and people are playing football. Meanwhile I’m sitting here, coughing quietly, hoping none of those people get anywhere near me.

While you’re stuck inside, your website is not just a place you can go to, it’s a place you can control, a place you can maintain, a place you can tidy up, a place you can expand. Most of all, it’s a place you can lose yourself in, even if it’s just for a little while.

I love this.
