Well here we are.

The observant amongst you will have noticed that I have not posted about the current pandemic. Well there are enough posts from people not knowing what the hell they are talking about and I have no desire to add to them.

Mind you according to a friend of a friend of a friend if you hang a clove of garlic from your left testicle you will be protected. Unfortunately they did not say protected from what!

So here we are on a sunny Sunday lunch time, the birds are twittering and the breeze is blowing, so everything must be OK.

It’s a funny old period of time, most things are closed, people are not going out much and people are not making money. I bet if you went to Skegness you could get a seat on the sea front now as well.

Whats happening in the world at the moment is bringing out the best and the worst in people, with the majority out to help others and the minority out to make a bit of money out of other people misery. Actually seems about normal.

Stay safe and sit and watch the tv it will make you keener to get out and about!!

Things that go bump in the night.

Here, when things go bump in the night that thing is normally me.

Of late I sometimes have difficulty going to sleep when I go to bed, and that makes me grumpy.

So I would rather just get up, come in here and potter about on the computer for an hour or so, which is why this blog entry is being typed at 1am on a Monday morning.

It does not help that I am an evening person, me and mornings just don’t get on. I can concentrate better at night than in the mornings, heaven knows why but I have always been like that. I know it used to drive my late mother nuts.

I have never worked out how people can be so chipper first thing in the morning. I have over the years asked people why they are chipper in the mornings, but so far not one person has given me a sensible answer.

To me there are advantages to pottering about at night, the main one being that I am rarely if ever disturbed. I have perfected the art of tuning out the wife’s snoring from the bedroom next door. I just imagine it’s distant rumbles of thunder!!!

There’s a lot to be said for some country people who go to bed when it’s dark and get up when it’s daylight.

In the winter I find it relaxing to be working away in the middle of the night with rain beating against the windows, I find it very therapeutic.

I know people who go to bed the same time every night and get up the same time every morning irrespective of wether they need to or not. I don’t understand their logic, assuming that they have some!

So there you have it, I am a night owl! well it’s either that or I am a bit barmy!
