“To The Boozer!”

Lock Down 3.0 is really starting to bite. I miss my friends and I miss my family – but the back drop to meeting these groups of people (extended family and others) is the Boozer.

#SuperSpreaderSaturday

With Lock Down lifting, I paid a socially distanced visit to my folks near Bedale, North Yorkshire. Kathryn came and it was nice to get out of Harrogate and sniff the fresh air.

Vintage Fairs & Pints (Lots Of Pints)

So, what happened at the weekend? Quite a bit as it happens – I did not sleep so that meant there was a lot of w/e overtime put in. I managed to re-haul my web design site www.treebark.design and I am quite please with how it looks. I have gone for a set-up that makes it easier to read and therefore slightly better optimised for search engines. It still has HTTPS (an SSL Certificate) so…
