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.

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.

Decid­ed to try and get going on my blog again. Been a long time, and the dread­ed virus has caused me to want to find some way of com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the out­side world while I work from home.

I’ve want­ed to read this for a while and final­ly got around to it. Whilst it’s a very sad sto­ry, there are moments of hope in there. We must all pray that noth­ing like it ever hap­pens again.

2019 has been one of the hard­est of my life. But I wish you all on micro.blog a very hap­py Christ­mas. I’ve been qui­et, but you’ve helped keep me a lit­tle bit sane the last few months.
