Must be the order of the day.. but I spent 4 hours in the garage clearing out chaff. Finally unpacked boxes that got put in there 11 yrs ago when I originally moved in, and 90% of it went in the skip bin I’ve hired.

Even found some D600 parts. Binned the lot, I’m being brutal.

Upgraded my TV package. I wanted BT Sport for the MotoGP. It's £25 a month direct with BT.

It's £170 to subscribe direct to MotoGP.

I called Virgin. They can add sky sports, bt sports and sky cinema for £22 a month.

So I've gone for that. Only downside is having to wait 24 hours for the upgrades. I presume bt sport have catch up for the races?

On to the next step dealing with my mother's death.

There's so much form filling its untrue. There's a government website that will pass on the information to some departments. I can't find her driving licence so that's a pain.

Next I've got to value her half of the estate and send that information off so I can start the process of applying for a Letter of Administration.

Weddings and deaths are great money spinners.

Exiting one of my residents.
I just now walked into the garage, and the guy is sitting there with two bottles of vodka...!!
Un-fcuking-believable!!!

I'm gonna have a ton of cleanup after this guy too, because he is one messy slob motherf***er of a man. He also has more meds than Pfizer. Poor guy.

I've done two interviews so far this morning. PITA. They're giving me a headache.... and if there's one thing I hate, it's a headache.

Took part in a running race, the first in will over a year.

Very very well organised, COVID safe but still felt like an event. There is hope.

Ordering Steel. My workload feels bizarre at the minute.. I've got 2 big projects on the go, 1 medium and 2 small. With working from home there's only so much I can do and each project is waiting on something. So ordering material it is.

Trying to things sorted for my mum's funeral. We've still not had the death certificate. I'm chasing the funeral directors to see if they've heard anything as they should have the green slip needed for the cremation.

I've just seen the weather forecast. It looks like this cold spell is going to come and go over the next couple of weeks.

Should be fun for those who have booked drinks outside
