    About half way through Robin Hobb's Fool's Fate.

    As much as it's been fun to reread them (and long enough between reads that I'd largely forgotten any more than the bare bones of the plot)... I suddenly remember how much of an idiot Fitz is and how much the books start to drag between action.

    67 days now cooped up.


    Urgh.

    My sons nursery are working to a 1st June reopening. I think it will be 70 days by then. Various changes are being discussed. I am not really expecting any of the measures to protect our household from infection. Definitely not convinced it is the right thing for the nursery staff so we are just keeping an open mind to pull him back out if it starts to feel more wrong. The majority part of me is approaching it like it won't happen at all as I think UK cases are going to start rising exponentially again soon. So hard as an individual to decide what is right. Which I think is the UK governments plan.


    Yeah, I feel you. Our daycare has been following the ministry of Education shutdown so far, but with schools closed till fall they will need a new plan...I don't know if they could aim for a June opening...MAYBE July...but yeah, how do you ask toddlers to social distance? You can't. So I don't know how this will work.


    My boss has four year old twins and she was talking about this last week - with the same air of not really knowing what to do for the best. I think she and her husband were erring on not sending the girls back until the new school year, but then was worrying about if work will still accommodate child care needs in terms of her hours if it's been deemed safe to send children back. All rather messy.

    I think the decision had already been made prior to Picard's success. I seem to remember rumblings about a Pike series not long after the second series of Discovery finished.

    I liked Anson Mount in Discovery though so I'll probably give this a whirl.

    I think the hating was more about the worry that the film would take an unredeemably screwed up and evil character like the Joker and give him a background story which might evoke sympathy or somehow 'legitimise' his character and life choices. Which I dont feel it did, but I understand where the concerns stem from because it is a fine balance on a knife edge. People inherently will feel a sense of identification and/or sympathy with any main character in a film because that is the window through which the story is perceived. Knowing what the Joker will become makes that a very awkward premise.


    To be fair I know a couple of people who did come out of watching it claiming it's a great film because it makes you sympathise with the Joker....

    Watched The Theory of Everything at the weekend. Cracking film, although very sad. Eddie Redmayne does a phenomenal job.

    What Hoosier said. Loved your reading sessions on Youtube. Do you still do them (I ask because I'm hoping for more)

    Your videos on YouTube are awesome. It's always different hearing the voices in another person's tone and accent. Really enjoyed them, thanks so much!
