First Week Back in Work - Achievement Unlocked

Well, there we go then. A week that started very nervously, but improved as I got used to things and rather perversely felt more interested in things than I had been for a couple of weeks.

It was lucky that I was alone in my office for a fair bit over the past two days.

I'm very paranoid of course. I carry around paper towels to touch all the metal door handles that you have to pull to move around the building, sanitise my keyboard and mouse two or three times a day, sanitise my hands when ever I touch anything that isn't on my desk.

That sort of thing is tough. OCD is such fun during a pandemic.

And being around people in a confined space is a very "new" experience as well. I was washing my hands in the bathroom when another guy walked in while I was walking out, I nearly lost it.

So getting out at break times are important to me, even on a blazing day like today. I like to do a circuit of campus, exploring the planted and wild areas. Yesterday, for instance, I traipsed across the wasteland towards the drainage ditch, where a big clump of hairy willow herb was buzzing with bees. There's some whopping big blackberries growing too, but right next to  a busy road.

Mmmmm, toxic berries.

  1. I love the word 'edgelands' to describe those scruffy bits of land that surround the outer rim of towns.

    1. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

  2. Why is it that all the best berries are inaccessible or right beside a busy road. I’m glad you’re managing to get out of the office at break times.

  3. Edgelands is an excellent word, usually a good habitat!
