First day of school holidays went OK

First day of school holidays went OK

I've been working from home today, while the boys have been here on holidays. Clare is out at work of course. I think it went OK, though they only really watched Horrible Histories all morning, then we had lunch, then they have gamed all afternoon. I think it will be much the same each day this week, there's not a lot else we can do.

Today was my day of meetings, and that went OK too. I went in a bit boldly with an idea I had for a change in some code, and it seemed to go well. I like deleting code.

I don't have a problem with the idea of coronavirus passports. It is a little bit creepy, but if it's going to keep the kind of person who doesn't want a vaccine and won't wear a mask out of the pubs then that sounds good. What with that and the increasing evidence for a link between the vaccine that I had and blood clots, it's probably worth listing the number of coronavirus cases and deaths again. If people get the fear of this vaccine, and it's the only one that is readily available, then it seems the numbers will start going up again.

I stayed up too late last night, making the bank holiday last as long as possible. I watched all of Highlander.
