Change of personal priorities in lockdown

Coffee is of zero importance, and sweatpants close to zero.

I’m dressing more casually but still tidily, and have kept to my normal workday routine of shower, shave and getting dressed before normal starting time for work.

I’m available for work earlier and later in the day and have no time away during the day so work is of equal importance but with more time available (but I’m having to look for catching up on tasks that have been a low priority in the past.

This shows what not to do when streets are flooded.

Steering doesn’t work well when floating. The fishing dude is funny.
