Woo, hello! I'm doing OK, but as I work for the NHS I am currently horrendously busy. C'est la vie.

Thank you, stay safe!

And at 'normal people' level, there are advantages to working from home: today I went running at 11.30, to take advantage of the last sunny day in at least a week. I crossed a couple of people, but always moved to the other side of the street.
I passed a local grocery shop and there was a queue outside, about 10 people waiting to get in, keeping their distance. It seems it's working.
I'm just managing 3km lately, though, not good...

I came across this joke on Facebook (In Icelandic):

An airplane had five passengers: Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, the pope and a 10 year old boy. The airplaine loses power and starts to go down, and there are only four parachutes.

Trump said: "I need one! I am the world's smartest man and America needs me!" So he dons a parachute and leaps out.

Boris said: "I need to take care of things in Britain." And he takes a parachute and leaps out.

The pope goes: "In these trying times the world needs the Catholic Church," and so the dons a parachute and leaps out.

Angela said to the little boy: "You can have the last one. I have lived my life and yours is only beginning."

The boy answered: "Relax, there are two parachutes left. The world's smartest man took my school bag."

I'll notify your next of kin... that you sucked!

That joke may actually be older than powered flight!

I've come across it a few times recently, and there have been variations on who is left at the end, but every single one has Trump as butt of the joke.  ;D

Thanks Bea, that just reminded me that I needed to change the clocks, plus the oven and the microwave. I just looked at my phone and laptop for the time, so it didn't even register that they were different. I'm not sure I've actually woken up yet, despite the time...

First early shift in 3 weeks and some idiot stole an hour of sleep off me!

Oh poor you!
I've been waking up really early anyway, hard to sleep, so it didn't affect me - I bet tomorrow I'll be sleeping soundly when the alarm goes off ::)

It's still surprising we still have daylight savings. They should just do away with it.

Getting up at 04:30 is never easy! It was a slitly ironic remark to make though as William Willet is an ancestor of mine.
