  1. 39, 028 - Sorting books on to a new bookcase is very therapeutic. Then I come back and find people on social media trying to use last night as an excuse to spout racism and hatred At least here in the counting thread, it is a safe, pleasant space
  2. And already on social media there are people trying to use it as an excuse to stir up racism and hatred before we even have a full picture of what happened or who did it This is where I don't like the modern 24-hours news culture - we don't need to see endless speculation and disturbing footage. Reporters need to focus on facts rather than chasing distressed witnesses. I will not put my TV on and watch that. I will minimise social media today because again, already there are people sharing clips without thinking of the distress they will cause. I hope that the missing people are found. My heart goes out to the families of those who have died. Equally, I hope this does not put people off coming to concerts. Security people do the best job that they can with the resources that they have. We should remember that. They can't predict everything. They can't always stop everything, but they do their best. The city of Manchester has faced this kind of thing before in the 1990s when it was bombed by the IRA - the people of Manchester rebuilt and carried on and did not give in to hate or fear or negativity. I would like to hope that we will keep that attitude and not be panicked by media sensationalism.
  3. 39, 025 - Counting to try and distract myself from the horrible news One thing is for sure, events in Manchester will not put me off seeing U2 in July.
  4. 39, 007 - The James Bond count!
  5. 38, 972 - Posting one last number... while listening to One
  6. 38, 968 - Still counting well
  7. 38, 959 - The counting has been much better today
  8. 38, 956 - Still half an hour until noon here. Time-zones are funny things
  9. 38, 953 - I caved in and watched a video from last night's show. Couldn't help it
  10. 38, 946 - Adding one last number before I log off. Goodnight Zootops!
  11. 38, 943 - Evening counting. I've read 2 comics today - 4 left to catch up!
  12. 38, 941 - Afternoon counting. The good thing about the counting thread is that there are always other counters to sort it out if we go off track
  13. 38, 837 - Rainy morning here so I'm catching up on my comic pile - I've got 6 issues of 4 separate comic series to read and review. And yes, 3 of those are Star Wars series
  14. 38, 930 - Cooking can be tough. I'm trying to get back into baking at the moment. I don't think I've baked properly since Mum moved out. Part of the issue with dad is that he has to have all gluten-free food, which means lots of checking ingredient lists. But I've got GF flour so I can bake stuff for both of us. One set of cakes (or cookies) each
  15. 38, 928 - I had haddock with peas and potato. We don't often eat fish in our house, so it made a nice change. I'm trying to be more varied with food - my dad tends to make the same things each week, so I'm doing my best to learn some new recipes and encourage dad to be more adventurous with his meals
