Books, porn, running and telly - still not interesting enough.

I actually got a proper night's sleep on Monday night, but still went back to sleep after my alarm went off next morning. I've managed to stop checking who's liking my soft porn girls and who's now following me (I enjoy it but still feel I've wasted time when I spend time writing captions or look for actual porn).

My book about Europe from 1500 to 1989* unsurprisingly often packs too much in - Sweden were taken on in war by three other countries, beat them, then beat Poland and took on Saxony before their army was wiped out by Russia - all within two paragraphs. So I fast forwarded 110 pages (and 70 years). It does nicely tire me out for sleep.

My boss said that J and I seemed to have arranged to divide up the work, though actually she kind of imposed it on me, even though she's not my boss and I shouldn't be doing the same work as her, as she's on a higher grade. She said she hadn't looked at the Inbox since Friday but I saw an unopened case which arrived last Wednesday, and started doing it as we were talking.

I was feeling very down as we've wrenched the last bit of novelty from this situation after 10 weeks without entertainment or social gatherings. At lunchtime, got a croissant from a place which couldn't take payment as their machine was broken - I'll pay them another day - and we sat with a coffee in the Gardens, then in the open space.

Listened to the Amazing Radio Chart which isn't very good at the moment. Ian started the daily work chat yesterday but I didn't join in, though I did it today with him, Jo and my boss, a bit stilted but we talked about our hair and that my boss was up all night after taking his daughter to hospital (I thought he said his tortoise).

We did the now-usual Jack-run yesterday and saw Abi in CNT. We watched a new series of A House In Time, now focused on Bristol and inevitably the slave trade.

Today we cycled to get pies from Young Vegans, I ran nearly 10km and we watched A History of England Part 3 and 'The First Night of Television' (at Alexandra Palace in 1936). At work I spent the day getting some figures for Julie, with the totals clearly in bold, but she complained that she'd only wanted the totals.

*it actually claims in it's title to go up to 2000, but it was printed in 1989 so doesn't even include the seismic events of that year.
