Week 36: Isolation
We got contact traced. We saw a friend after work and they got a positive test result the next day, which means we have to isolate for 10 days. We had a big shop delivered.
We had to cancel our holiday plans as a result. We were going to a house in the country with some friends, it really sucks that we can’t go – the timing is terrible. Also typical that we can go an entire pandemic without incident and then have to isolate the day before a trip. Oh well, we’re still taking the time off as it’s much needed.
On a positive note, cancelling our rental car paid for the 18 bottles of Champagne we ordered for the trip. It’ll last us a bit longer now too.
I don’t have COVID. Charlotte’s test results haven’t arrived yet but hopefully she’s negative too.
My mortgage deck access appeal was unsuccessful, so moving onto application #3. It feels like maybe it’s a good thing, because some new rates came onto the market and this new mortgage is considerably cheaper overall, so I think this is positive? Also, they’re fine with deck access so 🤞
A lot of TV is happening in isolation.
We’re watching Too Hot to Handle, which is a nice level of trashy. I think Cam looks like Simon Legg and Cillian Murphy had a baby. I want to be in a beautiful villa in the sun please, but with nicer people.
We picked The West Wing back up (it’s my first time, no spoilers please). Holy shit the final episodes of Season 4 though! I’m not used to this show making me feel so on-edge.
I’ve been enjoying Loki so much. Charlotte refuses to watch anything Marvel-related, I can’t get enough of it and I recognise at this point I’m just going to keep throwing money at Disney until they stop making them or I die.
Charlotte and I started playing Planet Coaster together, we both liked Roller Coaster Tycoon as kids and this feels like a spiritual successor. It’s fun so far, but way more involved than Two Point Hospital.
I added a shortcut to switch between next/previous weeknotes (to be more IndieWeb). You can use the arrow buttons at the top of this post, or you can use the left/right arrow keys.
