Life can be simple

if all you do is eat, sleep, watch TV  and create bits of plastic waste.

Okay, I'm not physically the guy above (yet) but mentally I am.  No! That's a lie.  He is much younger than I feel but I couldn't find pictures of fat old people.  Maybe they aren't so easy to make fun of on social media.

"Social Media".  The ultimate oxymoron. Long ago, when words had real meaning "being social" was something to aspire to.

Being Social:  "seeking or enjoying the companionship of others; friendly; sociable; gregarious. of, relating to, connected with, or suited to polite or fashionable society: a social event. living or disposed to live in companionship with others or in a community, rather than in isolation: People are social beings."

I could weep but I cannot be bothered anymore.

Monday was good.  I had Bangers and Mash for lunch and it was yummmmeeeee.  The robot print finished and I was happy with my level of 3D Printing competence.  "Mr Robot" was released on Aussie Netflix and I printed a rose and vase to celebrate my happy feeling.

The rose is quite pretty.  It looks very much like a silk rose.  I created the vase from a public model.  The original model is much larger but I wanted it purely for the single flower.  I used my new found skills to manipulate the dimensions.  I was right chuffed.  Later I will print a full size model and a bunch of different flowers.  Just for fun.

Today I raised the blinds.  First time in a over a week.  I don't need dark to sleep but the drawn blinds seems to deter the "boys" from knocking  every time they pass my window, going in and out of the driveway.  And given my sleeping/working regime, it make no difference if they are up or down.  The spring blossoms are out and the bush in front of my friend's home has grown huge.  It covers the view of the front door and any deliveries are safely hidden from view.  Deliveries are so delayed these days I see no value in checking mail every day.  This exactly suits my new 'stay in' regime.  I have left the flat twice in ten days.  Once to stock up on milk bread butter and cheese, and once to restock the drug cabinet.  I know the weather has been very pleasant lately but I find no need or desire to venture out.  Even the prospect of driving around 'topless' has no draw.  Everything seems to require wasted effort.

    I am liking your updates. Are they journal entries? Yes. You’re not the only one in the dire straits of lockdown. How creative one may become. Courage!
