Working back to some normality - Lockdown stage 24

 It feels like here we go again, life has finally returned to some normality, work is back to the swing of things, even in small stages actually, but even with the prep done. There is much of family on small updates and also it was some thinks on realising small things about myself. But we now go for the new month and also alot of happiness is seen to be around too. But still to catch up on things is the chance here. 

The First Weekend of work

Well, it was actually over halfway of the first week of back to work, it was actually not ac scary as once thought, the customers were quieter and actually it gave time to help with planning alot of the work admin and also having a new account manager for work's supplier which she is good and nice but it also made sure of new projects to eventually work out. And the Tiktok to show how my mornings sometimes go with a dose of vitamin C tablets.

But also it was good news for later since a new review was to arrive for the first Kickstarter. I ever purchased, the Genki ShadowCast, which is a nice budget capture card and ideal for portable ways to play games on your PC or using it to make a webcam from a dslr camera. But we can see how it goes for the time being. But I will have to make time for this to work out.

But then it was working on the jobs and actually time to get a fair bit of stock back on amazon listed.

With people going back to drink outdoors, it reminded me of the past life. From what nights out were like, it felt okay but also of how I never fitted in and never got the skills to pull back then either .

 There was a lot of scanning but it was to get most of the big titles out of the way to get some extra cash in the business  which will be for projects of some costs of paying later on. But it was also a nice touch for some lucozade as well. In the end it was very quiet on the after work front which meant for me it was good to finally get home earlier. But it was then the weekend, with plans to get done and family. It was good to finally start to go to grandparents to check on them as well. It was also to remind of loads of people going out. The smoothie was good first.

But that was easily to get going with, time was going to be a bit more compact next week I thought, but it was also the time of getting the heatwave started, the weather was getting much better. So first it was the Monday of cycling to normal work, down there of get to the customers. It was also the time to get the plan of working as normal. B

The Work as usual 

So it was  back to getting things, the first stage was actually having to get some accounts sorted, some customers were coming in and  wind was starting to pickup on some of the times, like there was this chill in the air. But also it was a Resi Evil POS to put up an the lady has already given me 2 jumps scares and well its quite tall. 

The POS and the door

As I also was on a vist that evening to deliver a mouse, it was making sure I could go to Tesco to get some extra bits and boy did i find a great deal of Food I've not seen since going to London a fair time ago of nearly 2 years  ago with Itsu, which was a brand known up that way and even in Euston. And Tesco had some of it, well even if it was £3.75 each and looked really good. Plus more Clubcard offers like lidl plus and actually some larger savings there, even getting to use a Tesco voucher I got posted a month or two back along.

But then it was time to go home and then get the next bit done and walk with mum after tea since Rosie needs her walkies as the usual times, but the chats with mum is okay for the most part. But the sunsets are the nice time and the camera apps have their times of need. Especially as the future was going on time with reflections on the trial and being guilty.

The sunset was darker on the mi camera

Then it was getting to make accounts on work carry on, it was also more times with chatting, since actually it was live chats on second job and also some flirting on FF which was nice but its sometimes to realise that it could be someone that might not exist. But that and getting the Phone finally setup was good, some tweaks I had to do for the £90 kit. But it was good to also get paid and top up the accounts. 

This was then the time to keep working and also the making sure of new plans to keep working online especially as I need to setup the plans for the future. But the important thing is that there is a rule to  respect people and women especially with the tiktoks of this day of April 24th to be free to be able to abuse or **** without consequences and not many men have made people aware of this. 

But As i got home one other night, I saw a bottle of #whatthefanta mum brought back home and it was nice to see a bottle of this special fanta about and then it really makes it tasty, there's a mix of Blue raspberry and also a bit of bubble-gum too. 

The bottle of #whatthefanta

But that night was also the time to finally have the food from Itsu.

The Meal with the dumplings and the gyoza 

That was nice but very doughy too. But after that was more working and also my hormones were starting to really play more and gives that self doubt too. But its also the time to go to autopilot mode to get things fixed up. Times to go for more of the watching of Family guy clips on Youtube still. 

Also more ideas popped up while working, Stock arrived and even Razer headsets and also the organising of the shop again since I got the plan of the spare bookcase from an ex customer's relative of mine the day before,  it was a bit scratchy but £5 is good. 

The headsets 

The bookcases and the new one on the right hand side 

Also new stock on the right hand side too. 

As I was organising, I had a chap ring up and try to offer me a unlimited phone plan then a S21 unlimited plan for £22 a month, I was getting confused and asked "am I high right now, since it feels like this just happened without any reason why and it was hearing like mumbles voices and repeating" But then it was time to help get the sign moved around and actually, I even hurt my knee from tripping over the vase, which then I moved to build the extension pole of the sign, then the day after, it actually disappeared. 

Since this was a day of dealing with winds which were STRONG, the sign blue around, it was hard to use it in public and well, it was a constant look over and in the end, the bungie cords for sack trucks were the best way to go. And this was also the time to have mini eggs for lunch which I've left there for at least 5 days unopened. 

The Mini Eggs 

Then it was back home and also mum wanted a second indian takeout in the past 2 weeks with the 20% off going on and so we tried a few different meals this time, it was nice and not too runny for me. Aftetr this, It was back to work 

The Indian Takeout 

Then it was the Sunday  

Which actually I've done that separately.  But shaving for that was a good choice and the views were lush even without the strong wind and then getting shopping done in town and also the texts from someone special are important. Which maybe one day it might be her joining me but there is going to be some panics from what was later to find out the final week of April.

Stuff from Poundland

Before the day ended I looked for the kits for TGI Fridays and it was to be the see if it worked out. But the kits were very expensive. The Sauce was not. 

The Final week of April

Things felt like it was back to normal routine, sure Monday was a quiet routine and the wind had eased off and loads more amazon postings to finally ship off. But It was also getting to make sure that I was ready for the work ahead, But we start to then go to the next day, the landlord was chatting to me for the shop and did mention no nails on the window, So that had to be taken out for the way of getting it  removed and then the sign was back inside the shop. Then it was some repairs to sort out and issues with phones and laptops to order on another card, But this week was also o the stage of having to get extra bits too. But the issue with card payments caused yet another argument. That and a old supplier walked in the door which I did put getting stock off him for a while but its going to be hard to put it a nice way to not use him anymore. 

This was also the time to realise that I've made a revelation regarding customers are getting ghost calls from work number.

But then it was soon to have a sinking feeling when I saw something which did make me question something but I probably realised I felt a bit entitled to feel that upset about it even though it was that emotion of why I feel like that I want to make sure hurt isn't going to happen. It was also weird when chatting and being offered to visit Newquay this year for a meetup but its the hmm and is it real. 

But the day after the butterflies in my tummy and the thought still on my mind, it was time to work and also reps calling and contacting me was not too bad and a way to put that on the back of my mind, but work was still without the card and well that was going to cause chaos to deal with money wise and stock going up and down. On top of that, it was the time to get lunch for the first time since opening and well Oggys are doing cold pasties for £1.00. Plus the water from Co-op is a good idea too. 

The Spicy chicken pasty for £1.00

But also it was time to make this idea to finally got the vibe of the Salt and pepper flavour snacks from the Co-Op was there. Which that was for home but I had a fair bit of visits starting to stack up, So nearly 1 after another, But I did pay a whole whopping £1.50 in there, But we later on tried it to see if it was worth it, It was a 7/10 since it was a lovely flavour but very hot and spicy. 

The salt and pepper chips

Then it was trying to catching up wit the blogpost and also having to pay for a mix-up from amazon and that was a pain when the next day, the mix-up was shown to me more. I managed to build up some time to talk and type while also making the mind to keep watching cartoons to keep my mind not stressing out. 

It was also the time of the Pink moon which means the future will be time to spark into new things, but actually for me that is not the case and well it was also the time to look at the weather which was changing at the time. The moon was not pink but it was a different colour but I did not use the tripod so it was not going to be clear when I used it. 

The Sky and the times 

But then it was coming to the next day, which actually was catching up on repairs and customers were one after the other, photos took ages to transfer and then it was stock to book in and to finally crack down on the issue with the fake number. But then 2 visits were to happen after and it was the first time running in the rain and it was actually cold air out and I could see my breath, near the end of APRIL. 
But it was finally time to get home by about 7:20pm and then get to have a late snack which mum left in the oven, and it felt nice to finally cook it. Plus the soon to be final can of the iberian solmar lemonade which is like a fake san pellegrino. 

The nice leftover meal from Thursday night

But then it leaves me to type up this and finally finish it, sure I also had to realise that 2 guys wanted to send me remixes of some dnb music with some clips of the vlogs in, that might be for a end of year video but we will see. But for now it will be hopefully a video this weekend or another one since there's only been 2 videos this month. Plus soon it will be a hair cut and hair dye, one of my customers is asking me to let me get my hair cut from him. 

Speaking of which:

A Catch Up on the Resolutions: 

Well lockdown has nearly finished for the most and well it will only be the last 2 bits left of the economy, the night ones and the indoor dining, which hopefully tastecard can help make a filling and greedy experience for the future too. But I dont feel i've been able to catch up minus on one of the accounts  and soon it will feel like i wont be able to either. 

  • stream more - Still have to do this and I do have capture cards now, even another one to review 
  • Catch up with the  accounts in work -  Actually I have got a decent total and some income bits to sort, as it is now, I can get a sort of basic HMRC self assessment done. 
  • Be able to hug someone non work or family related - Looking towards after June if the plan is to be the same 
  • Complete at least 2 games in a story mode  - This might be tricky 
  • Do more Day out vlogs  - One down and a few more to go 
  • Schedule/plan out days more -  Its not as much but its getting there. 

But thanks for reading and Soon there won't be 2 week catch ups once lockdown ends in june which might end a lot of the post count for the past year or nearly 2. 

See you then.
