Well, here we go again, as the meme from a remaster gets shown later on in this year, heck, even a week from when I typed this. But 2021 has been one year of lockdowns and also working in overdrive, vaccines and chest pains, delay on freedoms and vlogs and the social side that is non existence. But this is going to be the start of this review of the year. There is a lot to sort out here so it will be time to begin. This will be split into 2 parts to make sure phones and dvices do not crash when reading this .
|The first roast of the year|
|and first fryup with leftover party food for the year|

|The sunset in the clouds appearing|
|A selfie on the pebbled beach|
Which it was only those small days to remember until it was gong to be the words, #lockdown3, which then it was also the time to get things cleared out, which also introduced me and mum to get some fakeaways,
For tonight. Chorizo, sausage roll, potato salad, wafer thin chicken pic.twitter.com/541NmWT6el— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 3, 2021
|A nice fakeaway to start lockdown3|
Well here we are, lockdown happening again and we'll even work this time I get to walk away from , not risking cops going to work and me arguing the click and collect— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 4, 2021
its the listing of over 200 products is the kick in the teeth, and i still have to be in the shop which even when i was there by myself there was a nerve of a door could open with cops asking— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 4, 2021
tempted but i have an online job, accounts to catch up with as well as still doing some deliveries for customers irl— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 4, 2021
Also who else gets that feeling of going numb then hot then struggling for walk and hearing a timing sound for 4 minutes or so before feeling normal again, I just had that after coming out of the bath— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 5, 2021
I'm fine now, that was solved after going to a toilet and a little lie down of 5 minutes— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 5, 2021
That's a long time ago, out of my system by now— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 5, 2021
Also if i buy among us, should i get it on— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 5, 2021
|The Bournbon Egg Mayo sandwich|
This leads to work being done and low and behold, it was going to be a case of running to get a visit done, since it was better for that and there was going to be a clean for it to work and that in turn was over 10 years since my first ever vlog and the editing was to be in the same format as that for it when making one up, wait that was last year. No, that did not happen and it was the case to do a vlog of the first few days of 2021.
|Running on Roads for visits|
Around this time was actually one last time I spoke to a friend, which it was her birthday, and after that, there was no more replies after a month later of all those celebration days in the next month.
|The toasted Sandwich for it|
|The Bike upside down|
|After its been cleaned and tyres fitted|
But then it was just the knuckle down to get some work done and with it being the case of plans and even being able to maybe stream fall guys using the PS+ and also working online to save up for food funds in the future and well that was going to be some change towards that maybe. One of my laptops used for Video editing was finally sold, which is good since they have started to struggle with editing for the most part too. That and toonme

This week is the final week of having time to relax before I'll have to just shut things out to work properly, bit hopefully a vlog and blogoost up in the new few days— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 18, 2021
Then it was coming up to that first Ps5 drop of the year, but things were going to become uneasy, which on both the family side, and maybe even money side, but this was to be the combination of both. Waiting lists for the console has been a almost fucking pisstake but alas it was going to be the case, But This was good on reps to help out as always. This was also the time of watching Wandavision since well, Marvel and Disney + was really pushing itself to work as it wants to showing the expanding universe to explain films later on.
Also wandavision was a unique start to see for the best, hoping the 90s timeline gets a sliding doors vibe but thats gonna be rare— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 18, 2021
|The Consoles finally in stock|
|Stock of them still grows|
|The Ruslers and the naked noodles|
|The fallen parts of the trees and apples to clean up|
|The Plane in the clear evening sky|
Now it was the next week which was when it was time for having to deal with some parts and helping favours of friends which end up with some paypal disputes, Which things really did act bad but its that worry of repetition, but the future of 22 might be making amends on that. But working until 2am on rave for nights is not ideal but needed in some cases. But this was also the week of getting some extra money in for other foods and takeouts. But also it was the time of Egg and bacon PAsties to enjoy from um as well, this was a lockdown habit that did work out nicely. Plus Shaving on Instagram Live again is one of those habits that is a rushed out quick video.
Hopefully I can sleep soon, this past week has not been the best for sleeping, i mean one night was until 5 but more chatting and last night was until 2am for second job and one last hour or so tonight until i can end my day hopefully— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 24, 2021
|The Egg and bacon Pasty|
|The mini order from Menkind which might help for vlogging in the future|

Also I got my first payment from Google in over 6 year, seems it was a nice push when I managed to get partnership— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) January 26, 2021
|The Adsense payment|
|Investing for the first time|
|The shop from tescos for the Essintals back in that lockdown|
|That story of a memory from 4 years ago|
But it was the demand for visits that was going back up, which means less time to focus on jobs and well, more time for other things, well real life jobs. But soon the clouds were coming over, and it was when my nan had a fall, and this was going to be the start of a few months of uncertainty and how lockdowns make things much more complex. Ther was also the retiring of the sonic voice actor (ignore that, changed when it comes to steptember, aka back again) . This was evident that February will not feel the same..
|The moon ver the clouds|
|Playing games in the car while waiting for the ambulance to leave for safety reasons|
But the last day of January to myself, with some chores to srt off more and more, there waa that coincidental moment of a AZ vaccine causing the mild stroke a day after, sure there was anice roast port and mum was going to be pushed to her limits but I managed to sort things out in my own way. Plus this was the time of joining a OF sub which was like £4 for the month which seems too good to be true but had its good moments. But its remembering that realism for me is a long way off and with lockdown, the dreams are the only answers to hidden questions that we seek. Plus with more me time, i can cook more what I want, like omelettes.
|2 egg omlettes|
And then it was leading to the second and most uncertain of the months so far, February.
A Fun Fact: someone did fall in love at first sight with someone in lidl near me a few months ago then made a public appeal to find out who that person was. But turns out it was something about he was not single the story said https://t.co/krzQqoy9fa— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) February 2, 2021
A sneak peek of what I cooked tonight pic.twitter.com/5ZDjbtYMFu— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) February 3, 2021
For tonight. battered pepper onion Quorn meatballs , chips, all bran and ketchup pic.twitter.com/EVOVpOSFSf— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) February 3, 2021
But as the day when it gets to being further inwards, FNAF VHS tapes are horrifying, especially when watching in a dark room and also nice to catch up with how Interesting Wanda Vision was getting and knowing it could lead to a big twist on how that cinematic universe was working. But this was finally the time to get a vlog sorted out and t here was another time for the weather to come in the way it has. Since it was time to go back to shopping in LIDL and yes this was when face mask were back to a legal requirement, which it was good to vlog more, but as I find out, Editing was going to be trickier with how the Laptop was becoming a pain to use and edit, more the rendering and the smaller resolution. Plus it was getting an OF sub to see how a gain goes .
|The Bird on the road|
|Safely in the bird table|
But then it was back to nans and this time it was that Oreo Torte purchased from the shop in Lidl as the next port of call and well, it was very rich and very nice, especially would buy for feeding if i ever get the chance to do that again. But of course it was not the mood for that at all and that sombre moment to help out that bit more too, Plus it was a Windy walk to Bere Ferrers for some fresh air while the sun was out in the late Winter months,
|The Oreo Torte|
|The park in the wet for bere ferres|
After this it was going to be some exhausting runs to work, since the tyre was flat on the bike, it was best to run for the few visits I had to do in Tavi and some went to run on the road to princetown, well actually its back from that direction since of a visit easier to go over the moors instead of back tracking, the hills are steep an the road can be dangerous for sure. But with a beanie and some jeans that did not chafe, I was ok. Sure some texting while running was not too bad either, thought it was Beast from the east and that means high winds.
|The Road to run back on|
|It feels like classic me|
|And a nice all bran on soup to take the mind off things|
But it was also soon to be a collab with 2 different brands and this was looking like since it was then to luckily to stay in that bed a bit longer, even with Rosie cuddling and taking up my bed more so now since she was getting lonely but her attachment was making it hard to do things at night in some ways, even more so later on. Especially as soon it was time to clear the ex family room for another desk to be built at one point ot make things that little bit easier for me.

But then it was finally to see nan when she came back home after 2 weeks in Hospital and it was also learning how her dementia was setting in and this was getting to be the heart breaking part but a part we also had to start to accept, since lack of movement and with the lockdowns comes the mental health aspect. Which as i type this months later, has been a improvement in some ways but it will get worse in the coming months and this could repeat again, even with carers and the like being setup, which that was coming soon on the agenda. But with some errands paid and the video editing coming through that timing was the way to be and productive was what i Wanted. Plus cooking for me and dad as well as Fires i could see from the garden is a very impressive and scary sight, which was not going to be the last of them.
|The Hunter's Chicken Fajitas|
|The Fire across the skyline|

But then it was getting to the day of finally getting the chance to getting the video editing and the chance to make this omracer eats, which did not turn out as planned it was nice to make the meal.,

For tonight chicken nuggets, chips, peas, garlic bread and ketchup pic.twitter.com/VfQ6bu9h4e— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) February 14, 2021
Then we go to catch up with some evening meals and then back to doing the visits in the morning and then soon it will be the event of Pancake day which normally i do a vlog for that, but since the schedule it was getting stressful but seeing mcdonalds everyday was a nice treat. But the pancakes this year was a Fibre version of them, Maybe i'm hoping to make more pancakes this holiday season as i Type this during the time we have left.
|The Pancakes |
But we get to the sad part of half of the month which it was the End for Google glass and that means vlogs were going to be a shame, which then it was trying to search in spare time to find either a replacement or to get something alternative, but that was the plan since of when lockdown ends, it will be time to have some freedom before going back to work. Especially as a day or so after, the strap from the Amazfit Bip S was time to rip .
|The End of Glass, RIP|
|A nice Shop from Tesco|
|More PS5s arrive|
|Also other delivieres due to Price Rises for PS4 AND a limited Edtion switch that got locked away for 4 months|

I found out today that even a 28 year old that's never smoked, never been drunk and never had sex will still have a critical illness of £15 per month up to 70 years old which only pays out £30,000 then life insurance of £10 a month on top. Which again only pays out £57k if I die— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) March 10, 2021
Also my mum had the vaccine and feels I'll after, another period that I've got to make sure it's not the AZ one I have or I have to make sure to plan to close work for 2 days due to the AZ, I think and know it's for to be Pfizer to go for , even if it means waiting until August— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) March 10, 2021

Due to how things were, I had to post cash off to get this Bill paid due to people not listening, of course during #Lockdown3, people were not in the office So it was a wonder if it would even arrive. But in the endgame, some lunch bits here and there as well as more just fair. But there was an idea, since of the fun times of eat out to help out was good for some weight gain, there was an advert for tastecard, now that was to see if it would help out with some food bills and eating out as places were opening up, So that was Tastecard to be introduced, Which £20 for 6 months is a good idea to try
|The Tastecard |
But then it was actually to be the case of how to find them, like it really was hard to find and even family could not find it But Tesco locally had it so, that was where it was from. Later on it disappeared but somewhere even closer to me was selling it, so keep an eye out for that. It was also coming up to the anniversary of the Lockdown 1 and when I left, which means the anniversary is emotional at best.

|The box with the bits in|
Now I got home and did get calls as to why I'm late and well it can be annoying but it made me then decide to get some tea and a omelette was the best choice for this, especially when watching Pokémon on Netflix too.
|The Omelette with Cookies and other bits and it was lush|
|A smoothie for lunch|
Then it was soon time to get the sacktruck and walk to collect the Cabinet, which actually was the same as the other ones I've got in the shop too. After visiting, we both got it strapped and taped in, which then one chatting to get some Gridwall in the next 2 weeks is a chance too, But Eventually, another 20 minutes and I got it in there, and then to unpack and move it around, which looked like it was going to work nicely.
|The new cabinet is facing us|
|The air and the cloudy view from the moors |
There was also questions about who some people were and that it was going to be about asking who are they. Plus the final meal over granparents as well as the last times of being able to use the Strawberry slush thats lasted over 1 year from when I got it from Approved Food. But at the time it was seeming to be some improvements with the first week of them two by themselves, even I helped nan get to the dining room which is the first time this year she went there.
I don't know whats actually special about meeting them or knowing who they are ?— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) March 28, 2021
|The Ham, coco pop strawberry white chocolate and sweet chilli toasted sandwich|
|The final drink with the calippo slush strawberry |

This was then time to catch-up for this and actually get some extra bits sorted out too. But a sunset walk with mum with the later on the sky blue at nearly 8pm is so rare but so much nice memories of summer coming up,.

Then it wea
This was the way things go and are, there was some excitement in the air with being able to finally do what I wanted to without any legal repercussion since of the sort of relaxed restrictions coming up, But this weekend was the Easter weekend which things have gone so quick on that too, Like it can really show how time flows fast in this. But it was also that catchup after finding out about various appts I helped out with .
Happy Easter and hope most take the time to relax before reality hits them in the next week or two. For me lockdown ends in 8 days and then time to build projects up and make money lost by bad choices and eventually be helpful without false reports or comebacks— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) April 4, 2021
But this weekend was the one to look for since it was time to plan for this review of some LED bike lights, since the bike was needing some lights for possible long journeys to be made and this was that extra bit of safety, since in the longer time it would be needing to visit these places which these lights were good and work quite nicely, They did make it easily work well.
|The lights on the bike showing its glow|
|Just how it screws on is clever.|
As well as that it was time to see granparents for easter weekend which was nice to go on a walk which is to see a viewpoint. It makes remind of what could happen and that walk was alot of good time to reflect and it makes you think on what could be possible. The sun is and has been always good for that easter weekend.

This was also time to get Tiktok setup for the most part of finally joining that crowd. I mean I still have alot to learn and even wanted to have to use the app to sign up since the site did not work even after 3 atrempts, but now it was ready to shave and then get the prep for the next day.
|The Tiktok profile in its beginning |
Well it's another shave from going monster hair to clear pic.twitter.com/9dIHk10sg7— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) April 4, 2021
So this lead to the plan of finally being able to put that to the test and this was the time of going to Okehampton, to test out how the bike was, my stamina and also how that renovation was coming along, it was going to be 7 months before this was complete at this point, so for me it would be a 2022 model of goal to use it. But it was a great bank Holiday monday to use up this time. So that will be the case of this journey which it will not be a short time until I make this journey again.

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.
|The consoles on the desk|
|Rubbish to take home|
Plus with Falcon and the Winter soldier out, it was memes of how night clubs would be opening on the June 21 which we know that turned out to be a lie and it was more to a special time for me to enjoy things. Plus it was also the time to enjoy the introduction of a new rep of the gaming side of a supplier which was and is even now one of the best helps i've had, PHone calls were a bit over the top at first but in the end its something I got used to and she has this nice accent too

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 and there is an App for it now.
|The indian takeout |
But as it approached thew weekend of which Stage 2 was about to begin (and months later might Re-begin) we come to the fact it was that final weekend to prepare for opening and it felt more like a Shop over time, the Boxes were going to be there for a long while longer and the Cat loves to relax on the sofa bless him.

Well, good luck to alot of people today, their life might feel stressed and its back to the grind or autopilot for some, for me, its myself. A vlog should be up tonight and blogpost up tomorrow then i'll be having to do grind again, lockdown ends for me pretty much today...— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) April 12, 2021
This was then the first week of work and it felt bits of painful parts of getting back to customers here and there. But it was to then carry on and even one of the kickstarters and also the addiction to Katsu Curry too, since it was to get the sauce the get the powder and even more of the taste not being there.
For tonight. Katsu chicken, roast potatoes, chicken gravy pie, bacon crisps, toasted bagel, peas and ketchup pic.twitter.com/bl2HRUOZjE— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) April 13, 2021

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. Plus it was Lady Dimitrescu arriving to see me,

But this was also the chance of realsing that the end of the Card issues were not the to be ending and more was to be the case, since I had to finally call the bank up to get it sorted. It was a stressful call and this was to finally be the case to get back to finally pay in over 1000 in cash over the 2 months of working for visits during lockdown 3. Especially as it makes it sort of harder to sort oput the bookkeeping which actually makes it the case of orgnaingi paypal with bokio whci later they becom ne greedy and ask for £8 per month in 2022 too.But this makes it rewarding to have pasta after. Plus OMG Burger sauce was in all places for the next few mo nths, the Hellmans is actually the best.
Today is a lesson learned, don't trust high street banks and expect to have to call up and wait...a card takes 2 months to get unblocked after having to be put on hold twice....— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 4, 2021
|The Pasta and extras for that night's tea|
This is when things will go back up to having to re-list games on Amazon which is one of those clearouts that makes the cashflow better for around the 2 months from this part, wait it was 3 due to some shit with getting lego games missed up. But that night was also the first time to check and test out Instagram Captions, which for me might be a nice way to make vlogs interesting and later on was a chance to try it, But it was actually pretty accurate, But it was also time that shaving was needed to be done soon too.
|The Caption bath selfie|
Captions are a pieces of edting crap in terms of making it easy, you have to literall Key in layers from what I was about to find out and fuck that was not going to be easy for this upcoming vlog to test out how captions work. But that was another time to remember later on on how it works. But instead its dealing with how a Fly gets in my mouth and makes me chok like I've had a sympton of covid ( this was before I started testing a month or 3 later)
|The Fly that spat out|
But this makes it classic to make sure it works as intended to catch up with what was to occur, well which is actuallty being able to have lunch in work since its queit, which later on it gets very much the once a month to have lunch type of vibe in the summer when catching up from choices later on .
|The 2 days of lunch, the Pasta was for the Friday, the Chicken Tikka Slice for the Saturday. |
But i finally got home and with tea, it was nice to have a cold slushie lemonade, which was from the blue raspberry syrup purchased when it was the day out to Plymouth over 1 month ago. But with the added Vitamin C tablet, it turned it green. So

But as the mind for this to occur, it was the action to also have some wagamammas as a treat for some as well as also being able to have a shop of my own which is in the Co-op which always has some small bits reduced from the day just gone by.

This makes it also good since it was coming up to the first of the relaxations of that you are legally allowed to hug someone from at least next tuesdday or another day at least.
Well there is a chance I can tick this new years resolution off when I get to hopefully later this year since hugging is illegal https://t.co/EtHR4jfQxn— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 9, 2021
But this was one of those weekends which I wanted to film but it was to check up on granapretns and this ended up a nice long walk as well as making the point if having to wait 45 minutes just for some spicy spuds from one one of the places In Tavi on the way back, "we'll only be about 10 minutes" and also it was that pet talk wiith mum, since of whats going on. It

But that anticipation of how thigns can work from this is the astounding factor. So it was another Tyre Tube for the bike that blown and that means running to my regular customers to wat could be potential the final time, which luckily 2 layers of socks will be the best way to not have that sting from december last year repeated.
Also I had to change the inner tube on my bike but I have a feeling it's an old one that has a puncture so I have a gut feeling tomorrow will be a 7 mile run to work on visits and 7 miles back— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 9, 2021
Well today was a 7.5 mile to work and then the same miles back to shop before other visits. Enjoy a sweaty selfie after an hour's run of the first part of the day pic.twitter.com/DClNyDHWY9— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 10, 2021
Also I'm sort of glad I don't have subscriptions with some major UK businesses since some of their advertising methods do make me feel it's more value of money to leave and go to a less well known company that might ... Provide good service and not was profits on too much adverts— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 9, 2021

Those weird feelings of s migraine and not blurred but like watery vision and god I feel tired. So a afternoon mini nap for me is the key to some hope , even if I couldn't even handle wasting lunch— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 16, 2021
So after a 3 hour nap, it helped relieve the migraine, still a bit shakey but a bit of rest should work better for tomorrow— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 16, 2021
|The boot of bits to take in from the car to their house|
Eventually we got home and no takeout to stop for on the way. And it was me craving a lot from the tea which was lunch, to then potato and lamb sandwiches and then more chicken lamb sandwiches as well as ice lollies.
|The tea which wad the same lamb but it really had some extra bits like the sausages and the gravy|
Also Good Luck to all restaurants opening tomorrow, and all the staff to deal with hopefully nice people, maybe a few louts and hopefully people that become regulars and show in changes each time they go :)— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 16, 2021

Now this helps to make sure of how it goes for the last 2 weeks of the month of may. Which the Bike tyre was fitted in, there might be news about a passing relativ'es will being sorted but it will be time to get that fitted inbetween working online and making sure that things are ok, som FF chat but is is real os no easy guess, But some deals in work anc even working late means leftovers to bring to the table especially as it makes life feel semi normal to me.

Now it came to another wet Monday and this was the first time i hitched a life to the first customer with my dad, well okay he did insist of me going with him and it was on the way there, which meant it was easier for a little bit longer lie-in too. First though I managed to get up after 10am, then got the bike loaded to the van, then it was driving over there. It was a improved and dry for that part, which it was small bit of rain, then it was the cycle to another visit after which was just up the hill and that was seeing a electric Porsche for the first time too. Then it was getting better weather as i cycled back to one more visit with some TV and NHS app bit, which then it was finally time to head back home and more light bits for that dinner.

Sometimes it's being in a warm bath at this time of night and also then work just catches up after not hearing a reply for the past 3 hours— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 22, 2021
|The nice omelette for a nice end of day, mum wanted an omelette too|
But then it was time to get that 360 pic sorted as well as have a cookie for lunch. Then it was to have the chance to get the indian takeout for another meal in the world of spedning money on food.
|The Cookie for lunch|

well how #covidiots go to the one shopping mall i was in awe in going to and now got locked in there like birds in a cage, that is one mega trap they walked into, but god that place made me awe and i'll miss the Mi store that was there.— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) May 29, 2021
But this is where we get fun and Games. so i'm going blonde again with dye I purchased back January 2021. But do i go (Which i can now film due to new tripods and holders)— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) June 2, 2021
So thats getting sorted and then work had issues with taking payments on Tuesday, Paypal here has really started to get something not fair to say, well 3 yeasrs for a card reader is looking like End of life i suppose, but this has been off and on since march 2020— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) June 2, 2021

This leads to having to cope with preparing a innertube to see if it was pumpted up, and well that did not last so much long since I had to run to the shop with nasty chafing as per usual, well it probably going up to that size 36 in jeans which still I'm just getting under that many mothsh later but thats all fine since Jeans change from that part of time.
|The flat tyre to run home with|
This was hopefully a chance to get the plan going for seeing if i can book in vaccines and just because Az was out of the picture does not mean things will turn out o, but we can just hope this doesnt....spoiler alert, this is the 1st attempt for how health locally is not ideal. Plus having to test out amazond discs that do not work is not ideal as welll but that leads to just refunds more than it should be be and well, that had to be tested for a pointless reason.
Today I finally handed in the opt out form. And also I did get told from the local surgery that vaccines have no idea, which means it's going to be nice to wait to get it when I know I can take time to prepare for anything if it's moderna or even if Pfizer does cause issues— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) June 8, 2021
But this was also the weekd i finally dived into getting a replacement laptop, sort of. I managed to find one brokewn on ebay for £139.99 and actually it seems like thats the perfect one, core i5 quad core, 8th gen so still compatible with MacOS and has botrh NVME and SATA, so this was able to dual boot and well it was going to be some time going to get it ready t oedting due to FCPX not compatible from cataline until upgrading and opencore is a shit hard ton to learn too. APCI is not easy to understand but some EFI fiels are easier to source and it ended up working as I wanted it to which means If i travel, I can video edit much better. From headphone jacks working to even the HDMI out. Plus Loki was actually fantastic too watch too.
|The laptop as i got it for £140|
@omracer A #new #screen on a #laptop. To finally get better #editing done and all under £250 for a i5 #whiskeyelake #ultrabook ♬ original sound - Mattie LT Marker

|The salad and korean bbq crisps|
The rest of this week was waiting for orders and also some phone calls here and there, but even it was a litle gift from #gener8 which is like a adblock plus but with pugs replacing ads and also getting currently for maybe purchases. But it was good to finally get in the usb drive and sticker. Seriously, it taken a year of being nagged to sdhare a link then use their browser for like 5 days and I can then get in free USB Drives and then had to sell this months later like FUCK SAKE. Plus it was going to be more stupid exchanges like this which would make me rage
|The sticker and usb drive|
This was also when PS5 Games and supposed to be a PS5 drop byu my rap had been told zilch about that so it was going to be a few morre months before Ps5s will be in front of my very eyes again. Lidl plus was showing thje Asian week and that app really does show trhe best optinos to get from Wasabit Ice cream I have STILL NOT EATEN yet. Plus it makes some nice meals out of it too. And that scalp of mine was getting REALLY itchy and like loads of lumps, even with washing daily.
|The £18.58 purchase|
|Some of the above used for the tea after|
But after a few customers in the morning, it was time to focus on the laptop and the graphics were sorted. So video editing is nearly back on form.
|The laptop mostly up and running|
Then it was getting back form work after some accounts and paying in, to then to have a nice bit of dogwalking after tea which was a bit of a kick, Then to watch more E3 and see what the weekend holds. Like E3 felt not as different but still different without Sony there but some expected surpises and some nice new reveals made it cool too see.
But this was going to be the fiunal weekend before Actual freedom was announced and it was on a special date in my heart, 20th july. But before that was more Inner bike tubes to be changed sicne work wass back to normal, even in the lush heat this early summer we were having , which then leads to even getting a catchup with a customer of mine who is also mums good friends while Rosie was having her walks and it was also the time of films going in good quality some time later.
|Rosie enjoying the river|
But this was the monday of nice sunny days as well as that annoucement for the end of the restrictions. This now makes the exciting time.
So, freedom is the day before my 12th twitterversary. Well that will prove to be a nice way to mark it, though nothing much changes for me https://t.co/xEbzXLQsWn— Mattie LT Marker (@omracer) June 14, 2021
The cycle was then on to go to some of the canal path and that makes the sun really nice. Especially it was nice to work on passing the moments of the tranquil path.
|The seat at the end of the canal path|
But it was going to be the plan to finally get more of the laptop setup with my files and content and soon it was time to get a vlog done regarding the vaccine booking.
The worry was going to be then how this works, from cycling to a GP before work to finally book it. But that did not book it. Since there was going to be some stress on this for the future. But getting up first on that day and being called a lazy bugger like a joke is one way to call it. From then to have a shave as well then it was that cycle before it was time to go to work to finish the day and from an estate agent with pritning issues.
Plus alot of startbucks was needed that day as well. But with no luck on any vaccine booked , It was just time to ignore it and then get some work sorted out. The Anxiety that parents were eager and keen to move now some inheritance came though for them can scare me thoguht htre roof and makes me unhinged all bit and maybe even caused more of the stress.
But then while edting it, it was time to See how the ISO of windows 11 was going to be and well actually it feels really good and actually it was later on when it was time to get that done and this can be that painful time of how this can mess up the problem and make thigns really problematic. But it was a nice takout before Fathers Day weekend approaches, even with a meal that reminds me of my 6th date.
|Windows 11 being setup|
|The indian takeout on the Friday night|
Saturday make it nice to have more toasted sandwiches to enjoy which still I stil miss on occasions an shreddies was tgcraving at that time too.

As work inclined and also a Fathers day present to build a nice little hamper box that was form someone in plymouth but via etsy. But then it was to deal with #Fartherday especially when working until 2am and having a headache as well which was a day out toi the Hoe and even other places but that worry of checking in with NHS app but still, as of december the chance to now have to show covid pass. But this was nice to visi this place on the barbican and eat outside in one bench or tasble vrom where we were back in 2020 summer on a much better day.
|The views from the Hoe|
|The Pancakes with the bacon and the maple syrup|
But it was then time to try that beatles pose photo using that is welded to the grass on the hoe and also Xiaomi use some of the nice stickers to help less chance of the family being spotted and worked nicely when mum sent me the original pic.
|The poses in the beetles place|
But then more drinks and expesnive pubs on the barbic which lead to then driving to my sister's Fiances work to look at a car which eventually was decided about 4 months later which was not from that due to the tatic of it sold already the car he was looking at when just about to leave. But even walking on the hoe brings back amazing and sad memories from mornings before #crappycityplym to even when staying up all night and seeing the sort of sky light up in septembers. Plus the range is always ncie to visit as well.
|It does get busy here|
Then it was time to drive to drop the sister off first and also give out the presents for farther's day, which was nice with this crate along with actually other bits like beer and crisps etc. But it was good to have those TGI Fridays buffalo chicken which was actually not coated on and just dipped in the sauce, which reminds me the buffalo sauce is running out and soon my hair needs to change....
|The buffalo chicken with garlic bread and half of hunters chicken bit with no cheese|
This was then to make out thst pna of action for the first ever batch of Series X courtesy of the rep i've been dealing with for the past 3 months or just under and then this is how bad it gets since well, the customers were not jumping for it compared to PS5s. So that was a long way of selling, this was als the time of actually going to have to risk a visit where i could have died and also lost £200 in a manner of skeapjing and leanred how shit EE were being on the matieneence side with masts in Gunnislake. But that was going to be some hard cycling to almost the middle of nowhere and behalf of a regular customers friend and even to this day, its been no word to see if they have had any signal improvement.
|More Switch Games|
Work online was taking its to and it was the case to finally get some more lunch to catchup before things were going to be REALLY busy and stressful so its nice to have that chance to get lunch when i can. plus this was the start to having to do a LFT back then was not the nickname for a Lateral flow test. There were some big spending in boots and Pizza as well.
|A heavy lunch for that Saturday|
Also it was nice to watch Avengers Endgame while eating it and some nice to have salt and pepper squid/calamari, I miss that stuff when seeing someone special which it seems like that is next year... Fun fact this was from the place which I had my 4th Date with someone that used to work there back in 2018 (that was when the 4th date was) .
|The Chinese takeout|
From this weekend,doubt was put into my mind of a serious conversation of adulthood and if financially I could afford my own place, since dad was really keen to go for this place but I pretty much made him realise Its not going to be viable to live on my own like that for the current time, even though if they bought elsewhere and kept home now, I still would not be able to afford it and if that did happen, things would be bankrupt in a short space of time or basically it would have to be a big crash of career to have to work 2 or even 3 jobs. I could tell things were not good from the clouds in the sky and the reality of future would crash very very hard in the next year.
But that then leads to the special month of Anniversaries, Vaccine more planning and shouting out as well as ALOT of work to prepare to sort out for the chance things could be expensive and even with people only showing their face when they want a Vote and I don't mean Geffory Cox, that drama is many months later we talk about. But instead BID.
Now for July and onwards, it will be in a second part blogpost which is below
