Well that didn’t happen did it?

So it’s nearly August and I’ve still done almost nothing at all in any of the “Great Projects” – the music is drowned out by the vacuum cleaner, I can’t remember the gender of a single German noun (and the prepositions remain a total mystery to me) – anyway it looks as though things are shaking out now so there should be some stories coming along. As has been the theme I’m being called away from indulging my creative muse (sigh) – more later (perhaps)

Actually it’s now October and my commitment to starting off a chronicle remains stuck in tar. However in the meantime I have a f├╝hrerschein and an Aufenthaltstitel so it should be a little easier to come and go in Europe. I’ve still not managed to do any of the mobile phone repairs and the Biochemistry revision remains untouched.

On the positive side I’m playing guitar with a local drummer and the 3D printing has been useful! – all topics I’ll elaborate on if I ever get my backside in gear. I’ve also learned to use 60% enthanoic acid as weedkiller (diluted 1:3) and installed a robot lawnmower so it hasn’t been a total waste of time.

Hopefully more tomorrow.

Finally starting…

It’s Sunday (apparently, the days are a a little bit meaningless at the moment) and we’ve landed in Germany during probably the weirdest time of our 60 odd years. The global pandemic has curtailed so many aspects of life in ways I would never have believed and is acting as a backdrop for what seem to be fundamental changes in our social fabric. It seems to me that the last year and a bit have seen the release of far more demons than angels and some sort of appraisal of where things are taking us is probably in order.

I will be getting the hang of things over the next few posts (I hope) and with any luck I can start getting my thoughts into some coherent form along with finally keeping the diary I’ve promised myself for about 50 years!
