Charlotte's growing some seeds in our bedroom window, and one of her courgettes got a seed casing stuck on its leaves. I was hoping it would make a cool timelapse and I was not disappointed.
I don't really get how any of this works. So far I've just been doing things and they've been working OK most of the time
I've been reading Aquila to Tabitha as a bedtime story the last week or so. I loved the TV show as a kid; had no idea it was a book. I've enjoyed it a lot, and now I need to find DVDs of Aquila, The Queen's Nose, Bernard's Watch, and Woof. There were so many great shows when I was a kid.
Today I feel for anyone who doesn't have a garden. I can't imagine self-isolating without any safe outside space.
I get a really weird validation from Jimmy Eat World's Tiny Desk Concert. My face goes super red like Robin Vining's, whenever I even mildly exert myself, and seeing someone on camera have the same thing makes me feel weirdly comfortable. Also their music has a beautiful simplicity, but it's mostly the red-face thing.
Animal Crossing has a feature called the Stalk Market. You buy turnips once a week then hedge your bets on making a return.
I'm really fortunate to be part of a group of people who are pretty much all playing Animal Crossing right now
The world is in a bit of a state at the moment. People are panicking and they're scared. Far be it for me to suggest that poor leadership might be at least partly to blame. I never learn lessons from other people's mistakes so how can I expect the people who run the country to do it?
Just spent an hour and a half doing some maths with Tabitha and I get why people teach. When it works and they're getting it, it's incredibly satisfying. There is an equal and opposite counterpart to that, but let's not talk about that now.
I don't believe in signs from God, but if I did, the entire world going into lockdown a week after I buy a new gym bag would definitely cause me to cancel a membership.
Tabitha has enjoyed Animal Crossing: New Leaf so much, and the New Horizons release coincided so well with her birthday, that this was a no-brainer
It's good having access to an allotment. Plenty of space, barely anyone around and when they are they're far away!
