Thankfully didnt have to go in in the end.

Did have a guy phone up for help at 8am. He had tripped on the lead of his wife's new work laptop and bust the screen. #-o

Told him he can hook up to a TV, which he did. I'm a lifesaver apparently. O:)

We'll replace the screen later.

State of emergency.
Also the annual fishing ban for running waters comes in effect in a couple of days.
Stillwater and other local venues will also be closed for the duration of the emergency.
Looks like we have a boring spring ahead,if we live that is :lol:
Now I wish I'd have gotten more storage so I could try out some of the games I own.

Feels like ww4 started somewhere out there heh. I’m “essential” so I can still do whatever.

Heh. Three hours in I only just realized I haven’t seen any postal or package delivery drivers. I thought we were all essential so I wonder what that’s about.

Maybe they are doing less rounds. Probably all deliveries were United in a single turn to avoid exposure.

I've stopped purchasing all 'non-essential' crap from Amazon.

Also now 23 days with no booze. At the end of this I'll be the only functioning adult left standing.
