  1. 45, 419 - Counting and trying to relax after a stressful morning at the library. It was fine until some teens came in from the school next door. They got verbally abusive when all I did was politely ask them to turn their music off. Sweary rap songs are not appropriate in a library
  2. 45, 417 - We can but hope. In my local area, our MP (a Tory) has been spreading what is *known* to be fake information and "guidance" via her social media account Talk about irresponsible! All being well, I'm going book-shopping tomorrow. Hopefully it will be a nice, relaxing respite from all of this. At least if I need to quarantine myself, I have plenty of reading material to keep me occupied
  3. 45, 415 - That is awful I don't suppose he can be made to work in a separate room or something? Or at least see if your boss can have a quiet word with him about not spreading illness. *Especially* when people are going to be worried about those kind of symptoms.
  4. I went shopping and was (eventually) able to find a pack of toilet roll In all seriousness, the panic buying is stupid. And I feel sorry for shop staff, who are probably getting shouted at by people angry they can't find things. The comic shop also finally got my John Wick figurine in. Now I just need to work out where to put him 😍
  5. 45, 412 - We've had 6 deaths so far here in the UK I can understand cancelling things - as annoying as it is for people planning to attend those events, we need to stop the virus spreading. It's the panic buying that's annoying me. Healthy, younger people are buying up things like soap, toilet roll and long-life food and they're not thinking about helping more vulnerable members of the community. I went shopping today and was shocked by how much was out of stock. The staff have never known anything like it - and are having to try and substitute things for online orders.
  6. 45, 410 - I'm just happy that the library wasn't in a mess this morning
  7. I was able to return a missing audiobook disc to another library. It wasn't damaged, so it went back into the set and the audiobook is back in circulation. My good deed for the day Always feels good when we find things like that.
  8. Death finally won the chess match. Rest in Peace Max von Sydow. And thank you for so many memorable characters. Even your brief appearance in The Force Awakens was one that sticks in the memory. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-51803195
  9. 45, 408 - Weekend counting and rolling my eyes at all the people panic-buying. At this rate, they're going to have to put some sort of rationing system in place as it's getting stupid. And half of them are probably only buying these things to try and flog them online for extortionate amounts later
  10. 45, 407 - Wednesday and it's raining again On the upside, I'm getting back into writing my novel draft. I also had a very vivid dream last night. Dreams seem to happen most for me when I'm writing, like it's opening up that part of my brain or something.
  11. From yesterday. my good thing was that I got back into working on the novel I started in November. I've been in a bit of a writing slump lately and not done much, but I added over a page (about 700 words) to it last night Hopefully I can keep that going and get the first draft finished.
  12. 45, 404 - The weather has been rubbish here too. We need *good* weather to help the flooded areas dry out!
  13. 45, 402 - Late-night counting. I went to see my best friend today as it's her birthday. We always laugh ourselves silly
  14. 45, 401 - Chilled out afternoon counting. Another nursery school class came into the library today for a story-telling session. And tidied up after themselves Now if we could just get the *big* kids into the same good habits...
  15. We could do with some of that sunshine over here @Manohlive - we've got a second round of flooding at the moment in towns that have barely had time to clear up from last week's floods
  16. 45, 395 - Just some basic shop's own-brand ones that I got from Asda. They're also nice and light-weight. Large, heavy headphones hurt my ears.
  17. I have new headphones - and they've passed the "Does Streets sound epic?" test I had to get them to replace another pair where the cable had got so twisted, the outer cover had cracked and exposed the actual wire Then the pair I bought on Friday had a component loose in the right ear which meant the sound wasn't working in that ear. But we took that pair back this morning, swapped them and the new ones are fine. So I can carry on rocking
  18. 45, 393 - Adding another number while I dance in my chair - the new headphones are sounding good
  19. 45, 388 - I watched the final episode last night. So good. I'm going to have to buy it on disc.
  20. 45, 386 - Evening counting as Spotify shuffles round to my favourite piece of Star Wars soundtrackage "Duel of the Fates". I feel an urgent need to grab a ruler and start acting out the lightsabre duel from this scene (Also, is it sad that I know the words and can sing this even though it's in Sanskrit?)
  21. 45, 385 - Lunchtime counting while I start my next library book. I'm very glad I don't live near a river right now. Whole chunks of the county are underwater and some of the flood defence systems are struggling to cope. I don't think I've ever seen it this bad before.
  22. My good thing for today is that I got the loan extended on one of my library books even though I've had all 3 of the renewals that are normally allowed. Said book was due back today, but getting it to one of the specified libraries is impossible. Travel in many parts of Shropshire is being massively affected by flooding Anyone wanting to go to Shrewsbury at the moment should travel in a boat rather than attempting it by car Thank goodness for all of the emergency services, volunteers etc helping to evacuate people and keep them safe.
  23. Sad news to wake up to this morning. Rest in Peace Harry Gregg. Former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper and one of the survivors of the Munich air disaster. He managed to rescue several people from the wreckage, including some of his team-mates. He achieved a lot on the field, but will forever be remembered for his bravery that day. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51400376
