    A child in twin A's year has Covid so she now needs to self-isolate for the next 10 days.

    I'm going to insist she lives in the west wing (extension) and doesn't leave except for meals.

    Just had the bill for the roof.

    Pity he buggered off before I could write him a cheque.

    Six bags of concrete duly installed in the floor of the tin shed.

    From the looks of things, another 8 should do the business.

    Tea: Tesco unchunky breaded haddock, stewed Granny Smith's apples with icecream and custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: TBD.

    More of "Gettysburg (1993)".

    "Abandoned Engineering" on Yesterday, presumably something Nazi.

    Possibly the thing about Amazon at 21:00 on 4.

    Looks like I'll be spending Christmas on my own for the first time in my life. We normally go to my sister and her husband, but they're already in a bubble with my parents, and TBH I think they've been cheating a bit by also bubbling with his parents, who also always come there for Christmas; both sets of parents live within a mile or so of them. So that'll be the three households right there, given that none of the parents are really well enough to travel further away to anybody else, nor to handle putting it on themselves.

    There's a risk my brother might think of inviting me to his, but I'm hoping his two households will be taken up by my nieces and some subset of his wife's children, which would leave me home and dry

    Well, not dry

    Oh wait, there could be a catch! If you're already in a support bubble, you and they count as one household, so my parents won't count towards the total. That means there'll be one spare slot for a household (assuming his parents come and are the second), and they'll probably say I should take it "so you won't be on your own for Christmas"

    I know! I just hope it happens given this pre-existing bubble nonsense

    I've worked out if I bubble with relations I'm going to have to see them a few times.

    That sounds far too complicated, I'm sure no-one will work that out.
