The regular excitements/panic attacks of 2020 are too much for a man of my ag...

Re: Soundtrack of our lives.

No idea why I didn't respond to this thread the first time around. 1970s. Music really didn't exist in Ireland before about 1976 really :lol: .

Re: corona-era check in corner

Yeah, all (nearly) back to as normal as can be under the circumstances. Wife was back at work two weeks ago but her boss could tell she still wasn't 100%, so she told her to just work half days.

Re: corona-era check in corner

Bored now. I have tried gardening, but I really hate it. I spent two days tidying out the loft and bringing my CDs downstairs just for something to do. I am still recovering from an operation in February which has really slowed me down. I did get an Ikea delivery of some more Kallax so I built that ...
