The Lockdown Diary - DAY 116

...will follow when I'm back online at the end of the week. Until then, here's some music (there are around 80 tracks queued up behind this post and an index around day 100)

UPDATE: We're back with a proper connection that has few if any spinning wheels... So, let's catch up...

Friday July 18 - DAY 116

Text received from Virgin saying they couldn't connect to our phone and our Hub isn't set up.
At practically the same time, so I maintain without coincidence, the Sky connection drops.

The Hub isn't set up because we don't move supplier until an engineer comes out on in the first week of August (c. #131), coinciding with the end of our notice period with Sky. We have two suppliers but neither internet nor phone because the one we officially do have is now down and the one we don't have is apparently up but not in use

The usurper (none of this was my idea) has now been disconnected before it was actually initiated and the existing is down and they don't know why. We're leaving in two weeks - shielding/vulnerable or not, what odds we get an effective repair?

Went out for a longer spin around the Hall with the dog. Passed some of the cows who were being groomed by magpies, picking presumably insects from around their eyes and then flying to the next beast. The dog has developed her own 'out' routine which is pleasing, chasing a couple of squirrels (she has no interests in the passerine but co-mammals are fair game) and making sure I was there when off the lead. She also dropped her messages off right next to the bin, which is probably as close as she's going to get to flushing... A firework went off somewhere off in front of us just after we came out of Squirrel Central and into Squirrel Alley. She bolted, a full handbrake turn - she does not get on with them at all.

Recommended listening - ELO, Telephone line

Shouldn't laugh but what can you do? Kids are soon to spend a couple of days a week at one Nan's (the long-standing summer arrangements and given this year, more a mental thing rather than a situational requirement), the other is looking to escape the ward still.
Work went on to the back burner, unfortunately, as I had some work stuff I was looking forward to for once...

Stay well
