In order to stay positive, I am trying to limit my intake of news. I want facts, not sensation. Even some of the output from those sources I deem to be more measured have arguably strayed into the unnecessary at times.

The BBC has been getting loads of stick lately, some of it deserved, but I think their coverage of this has been pretty good. I think it’s been calm and useful and not at all sensational.

Today, ninth day of furlough from work. Is that a fitting word? Furlough sounds akin to holiday and fun.

Shut away. Finding things to do is not too difficult. Books, music, radio, podcasts. I’m sliding into an out of the ordinary way of living. Why worry? As long as food still shows up at the door now and again all is good.

With family, pals, and wisdom, bring on tomorrow!
