  1. An hour’s exercise followed by a day of editing (and being talked to about editing) video from Thursday night. Pleasant family Skype chat with the family on my niece’s 18th birthday. She was sent a video montage from her friends and had the street in which she lives in Cornwall sing her a distanced happy birthday – not quite what one expects on their big birthday but great people can and do find a way to show they care when Plan A is off the table.

  2. A quiet day today spent doing some gardening and enjoying yet another sunny day. We could see the police helicopter patrolling the estuary and Teignmouth beaches – presumably looking for any gatherings that would need to be dispersed.
