    I think the Frankie Drake Mysteries are produced by the same producers of the Murdoch Mysteries.

    I recorded all the series of Gavin & Stacey after the Christmas special and never got round to watching it. I'm about half way through the second series and loving it but starting to ration myself to one a day. I can't understand why I've never bothered with it before. Brilliant scripts, brilliantly acted.

    I cleaned all of our ceiling fans yesterday as they had six months worth of dirt and smoke particles on them, they are pushing out a lot of coolness now.

    Here's the one above my chair in the office... :D

    @Tipetoo You don't happen to live near a coal mine do you.

    No, they are further north from Bundaberg.

    A lot of the dirt on the blades was from the bushfires early this year.

    I picked up an ultrasonic cleaner so the work isn’t too labour intensive. Keeps me busy in the evenings. I still work during the day so I’m not getting too stir crazy yet.

    Gardening (something I normally dislike doing) The Gribbin; Passing Storm.jpg
    Indoor cycling - 20 to 30 miles (most) days, without leaving my shed.
    Painting - oil on board, paper, canvas
    Reading - even more than I already did
    Communicating with my extended family a lot more than I did - Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc - Family quizzes in the main.
    Using my limited DIY skills to make things, usually out of scrap bits and pieces. Yesterday a bird box and a 'bug-hotel' (a real five star one at that!)

    Thank you DJC3, Lots people don’t understand how much a strain losing a furbaby causes. 8 weeks today. However we heard on Monday that we get the keys on the 1st of May! Today it sank in that we are actually going to move at last, the removal man is happy to move us. I can’t find anything that says if your shielded you shouldn’t move so we are. My biggest worry is changing GP and being stopped by police on the journey to the seaside, only 12 miles, but my beloved will have to do it more than once.
    I’m still off the wagon but only hanging half out Once we are actually there I will be knuckling down and being strict.

    @David_A_Hughes

    I'm impressed with your mileage on the indoor bike, I only manage to do 4 miles a night and that's my knee done even on the low setting!! Better than nothing I guess and am trying to up in each week. Went for a walk for the first time yesterday and was more like evading capture as you have to keep crossing the road, weaving and bobbing along trying to avoid people!!

    Been back at work online with the school this week and the poor teacher did the same online quiz on zoom for four days (obviously for different classes), and same again tomorrow! I keep my cam off and do a bit of googling whilst the lesson is going on or I'd fall asleep!

    Watch a few documentaries on You Tube and have really enjoyed "Shackleton's Captain" and "Sir Edmund Hillary - The Race for Everest" both fascinating, especially the Shackleton one is quite unbelievable. Well worth a watch.
    Anything on TV with crowds is a bit odd!!

    For anyone who enjoys musical theatre of a Lloyd-Webber persuasion, this YouTube channel might be of interest. Every week, one of his full length musicals is released to view, free for a 48 hours.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdmPjhKMaXNNeCr1FjuMvag/about

    There are also lots of single tune/song vids for more of a soundbite session.

    We finished watching the Money Heist on Netflix, a big cliff hanger ending so now eager to watch season 5 and 6 when it is released (Covid 19 has halted filming in Spain).

    Off to the podiatrist for a feet check up and my toenails trimmed this morning, will get some money out of the ATM at the shopping centre while we are that way.

    I have my camera all cleaned up and sorted my lenses and filters trouble is there's only so much I can photograph in and from the back yard.


    Going to give my ukulele a try again tomorrow it's that chord of E Major that keeps messing me up for some reason.
