    Thought I’d start a separate thread so we can reflect on some of the brighter things we did during lockdown/ social distancing.

    Here’s my walkies from this morning to start off with.

    I finally had a run of my floodlight when it got proper dark, in an effort to brighten things up...

    Temporary wiring, but I'll permanise it at some convenient point.

    It's a 70W high-pressure sodium bulb.

    I've rebuilt a pond, removed a skip full of crap from the garden, jet washed half the drive (it slopes back towards the house with no drainage!) and am almost healed from my pre xmas injury after running/cycling pretty much every day lately.

    I've made a trello board of jobs I still need to do around the house, I think I need about another 4 weeks lock down :)
