I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Ven­tured out­side for the first time in a week today. It’s a real­ly strange atmos­phere, hit­ting me that peo­ple seem to be final­ly tak­ing the virus seri­ous­ly. I’m fed up of being on my own though, some in per­son human com­pa­ny is needed.

One perk of this whole lock­down sit­u­a­tion: I’m final­ly sort­ing some of the stuff I’ve want­ed to sort for the last 6 months 😂

I keep find­ing myself look­ing at the refur­bished 2018 iPad Pro on Apple’s web­site. The price drop makes it incred­i­bly tempt­ing, as does the new mouse/trackpad sup­port. I can see it becom­ing way more valu­able now, espe­cial­ly for the Affin­i­ty apps…

From my trip to Rome at the end of Novem­ber, when we could walk freely around a beau­ti­ful city.

Took this a few weeks ago when I was walk­ing home one evening. It was peace­ful then. Now when you go out at night it feels eery, but there is a kind of beau­ty to the emptiness.

You’d think hav­ing worked from home for 7 years I’d be used to it, but today has real­ly dragged. I could real­ly do with a walk, but try­ing not to leave the house and to iso­late after some col­leagues from work have shown symp­toms of The Virus.

I’ve just seen pic­tures of what the Lon­don Under­ground was like this morn­ing. What do these peo­ple not under­stand about stay at home!

Mes­sage from the Prime Min­is­ter that essen­tial­ly puts the UK in lock­down for the next three weeks.

Ven­tured out­side for a walk late this after­noon to try and alle­vi­ate the cab­in fever. Every­thing was a lot qui­eter than nor­mal, there is an eery feel­ing around the streets but I still saw pock­ets of young peo­ple gath­ered togeth­er. Not as bad as Lon­don appears to be, but still baffling.

Spent the whole day indoors today, in a kind of self-iso­la­tion. Noticed yes­ter­day I was cough­ing a bit so made a pre­cau­tion­ary deci­sion to stay home alone. Start­ed to take my inhaler yes­ter­day and it seems to be work­ing, coughed a lot less today so prob­a­bly not the dread­ed virus.
