Friday Links: Hamilton Day

Happy Friday!

Anyway this weekend, we’re going to get some relaxation of rules because the death rate is down, whether it will stay that way is anyone’s guess, but if we are relying just on the common sense of the public, we’re buggered.

I got to see the nephews last week and after a pretty fraught week, today I get to see Hamilton and tomorrow Mum gets to come and be on the allotment and stay the night. These things make me happy.
