Well, this has now past my first day back to normal opening, sure there have been moments of stress and pained up wrists. Especially after the recent cycle to Oke and then later on to be the prep for the shop too. But well this progress starts with plans and memories.
We start with that time after the cycle to Oke, I was actually exhausted and it was meant to be to getting the video editing done. But sadly it makes it delayed due to having to pop down to work, since there were so many bits to get done and deliveries to arrive, So i ran down there and then waited for a delivery which then was to get a hub delivered to a customer. Which from that was all sorted then time to head back to finish at work before heading home.
Then it was time to get the editing done on the Wednesday, This was even slower than I thought but eventually it was Sorted out and then that video was up, which actually did mean one less day to prepare for the renovations be complete, But it was nice to have a final toasted sandwich and smoothie before having to renovate the shop since it was 2 days to get a bit of a base made up.

But that and the family were mostly back to normal and also that time of the weather being better which mean some time to be happier. But there have to sadly be coincidences and well, more consoles to arrive was another one of those and well it worked out right due to the refurbish to begin.

Then after this, the Consoles arrived and then time to finish the back panel, Which I got lucky to get it done and then it was time to keep it on and then instead, there was one Phone call while screwing in the back. Then it managed to stay in and well, it resulted in a Desk made. Even holding PS5 consoles.

It was then time, to go home and then get things. to catch up and get questions sorted, since that was needing for the times to get money for the projects later, but it was amazing to finally get it sorted. So the next stage was to get a console delivered then to pickup more of the MDF sheets to get the next corner made up. This was a bit worse and some minor tearing on the MDF panel but in the end, it worked out and then the hard part was to get the the other end sorted. Then it makes it time to organised the floor and start to hover it up.

Then it was time to organise the boxes and then a bit of hooving and then we have to start to pack-up the cardboard to take home with me, since it takes time to plan out how things look. But it was then also the announcement of the Duke's death, It did make it odd to feel and also it was nice to text someone special too. But it was nearly 4pm by this point. But it was soon time to go home and catch up with family. But walking with the cardboard was not as dire as I thought it out to be either.

Then it was to wait for an indian takeout, (2nd time in 2 months as well) to arrive which actually is REALLY REALLY good even though I miss the prawn puri from December 2019 as well. Fun fact, this was ordered online and then collect, but still not shown on Just eat at all yet.

Then it was more time to catch a break then we had to carry on, getting the sign cleaned up and then it was time to get the sign built up. This was a bit of guessing the right section and some holes in the sign as well. But in the sun, it eventually was sorted and worked nicely. Balloon holders can works to keep the sign in the hedge too.

Then it was the final stage to get the tidying done, some desks moved and then it was soon time to finish, especially as the Monday was going to be a long time away. This was actually a progression and fine to be open again even though I was daunting it. But it was the best it could be for now.

Then my parents picked me up and it was time to then go for a walk with them, the wind was strong and it felt good, but it felt so nice to finally understand, but this was the final weekend before lockdown ends.

Then it was soon off to a village, one which was used for part of a blogpost a while back. But the sun was out and it was actually warmer than I thought, We eventually got there and it was funny that the train was actually at gunnislake as we were passing. But then we decided to walk to coetehele quay, and to start with it was warm on the lower side and the train was passing over the viaduct too.

As we were walking up and seeing the houses and remains of the mining history, it was then passing to a pottery shop and then after itr was time to head up the hill and then it started to get windy. But as we got to some of the viewpoints, it was getting nice on the views. Some conversations on the past and future were coming up too, and mostly gossip and Rosie doing toilet on the way down to the quay.

Then it was time to walk down to the quay. It was busier than I thought and then it was time to make a face mask on and then go to the toilet while my dad and sister were in the queue for ice cream, in then end, it worked out to get a nice toffee apple ice cream.

While waiting for that, it was nice to talk to mum and i did explain a bit of a hint i dont want to go to my sister's wedding if or when it happens, but no reply was from that, she also complemented the immortal Glasses, less obvious than than Google Glass. But after that and a few selfies on mum's phone, then it was time to walk back and more talk about the next week to come. With some PS5s to Sell and also some repairs to sort out. But we can see how it goes.
Eventually it was time to go to one more visit in then time to come back home and then to finish the vlog, which I managed to get it done until 1am or so and the rendering was struggling too. But then it was time to finally wake up and go back to work. Which was okay, I was having to rush but was
