Walking through the Newtown lanes, I passed a privet bush in full bloom. I hate that sickly sweet smell and it's a main contributor to my seasonal allergies - it's a weed that was everywhere when I was growing up in the country.

Masks are good, though. I could barely smell anything this time

@Shes_Gabrielle I know that nothing I can say or do will make a material difference, but what you experienced was crazy and shouldn't have happened. I hope you don't have to go through similar things again, and that you have a good support network around you

I didn't push my chair in as I got up after lunch. When I was putting the plate in the sink, I heard a crash and turned around to see that Daisy had used the chair as a springboard to jump up onto the table. No food or anything breakable there, luckily...

@bestthingsbot our new puplet Daisy galumphed down the hall at breakfast to see where I was and then sat at my feet waiting for my toast

"France bans citizens from filming and identifying violent police officers"

That's fucked up

@bestthingsbot I finished watching The Haunting of Bly Manor. Elegaic isn't a word I use often but that show is an exquisite combination of terror and tenderness.

@pzmyers I just recalled the British slang "nonce". It's a word that should come back into style, IMO

Family, MH

I thought for a while that it might be possible to reconnect with my father after years of not speaking. However I just hung up on him mid-sentence through an anti-lockdown rant.

He kept repeating the same lies he's read in the Murdoch press, and refuses to accept that people might lie to put profits ahead of public health. I think I'm better off without him in my life

I'm cat-sitting again. After a couple if weeks, Pi is brave/bored/... enough to go exploring. Now he wants to go outside. Not a good idea, unfortunately

where were you when you found out the UK's track and trace software (which cost 12 billion quid) has excel as a backing database

sadly there is a backlog of cases which were untracked because they exceeded the excel row limit

worry not, they have solved the problem and are now using two excel files to keep track of people
