We’re both a bit meh at the moment. Work is tough - the businessman part of me needs us to be busy, but the part of me that doesn’t want Covid wants us to be empty, but January is always tricky.
We’re trying to get some things in the diary to look forward to; virtually. We’ve got an Eddie Izzard gig tomorrow night and Abandoman in a couple of weeks. Our youngest is going to be 12(!) at the beginning of February and he won’t see any of his friends until well after that. We’re organising a virtual party for him - one playing Among Us and one with a Realms Plus Minecraft world (thanks @pillbox ). We’re going to take bags of party food round to all his friends so they can all eat crap together.
It’s odd organising things when the kids are in High School/ comp because you don’t meet other parents any more.
Trying to play games as a family (Imperial Assault and Decrypto featuring heavily) and virtually (thanks @Whistle_Pig ) as it’s nice to crunch the brain in a non work context.
I’ve also been persuaded that we should get a dog, although I’m putting that off for a couple of months so we can do the new dog stuff (whatever that entails) not in a total lockdown.
Also cricket is back. Although I am proper jealous watching the crowds in NZ and Oz.
