Back in now after few weeks off, as a designated key w**ker.Can't w**k at home unfortunately, although this crisis will push new ways of w**king along alot quicker.. a mini-webolution may well (and should) arise from these ashes, through necessity.The clean air agenda will
help fuel this too ( npi ).

We are "working from the cottage" as of today. Installed the ramp to the dock, home made burgers for lunch, pruned the apple trees, went for a spin on the motorbike and got some solid frisbee time with the kids. Still actually did some work work, but the ratio is on the slide. If i make it out the other side of this with my job intact it will be a miracle.

Sorry, that came across a lot more look at lucky me than intended. I appreciate a lot of people are doing it very tough right now, and I'm lucky to have a job at all. Was more meant as a commentary on my struggles to actually focus on work, especially now I'm at the cottage. The temptation to crack a cold one at 11 am is particularly strong (6 mins and counting).

I’m so desperate for ‘live’ sport that I’ve finally steeled myself to rewatch the RWC final. I have self-medicated with a second bottle of red, though.

5 mins in and it’s seems I haven’t self-medicated heavily enough.

Nowhere near enough medication or steel. I’ve turned it off. That first 10 mins is a masterpiece in how not to play the first 10 mins of a World Cup final.

There’s some sort of awful gag about how many utter Benders we seem to have out there in the world, but it sounds homophobic without even meaning too.

Anyone else pretty much just swaying wildly between denial/indifference and feeling sick to their stomach about what this thing is doing to the world?

NZ Super Rugby domestic comp to start on June 13th. Might be time to get the Sky Sports subscription back up and running.

Yep. I'll be toasting the move to Level 2 at 11.59pm tonight. Off to the bach on Friday night and a proper family catch up over the weekend. Fortunately I have all the bragging rights from the Family Zoom Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit evenings.

I really hope we can get amateur rugby up and running soon. It's about time my 7 year old boy obtained his birthright as a Pākehā in Auckland by getting mown down every Saturday morning by someone called Sione.

Sione looks like a good prospect..
Dealing with pluses of shorter week due to recent semi-retard status; whisky, listerine and cabbage well stocked.. Exploring 'wfh' possibilities now, combination of getting the techy bits joined up and a Covid case or two within range means it's defo a goer - just waiting on bits to arrive. 'Go with the Bo :)'
