Corona-Chaos, Brain Block, and Community Calamity (or What’s been going on here in this Quiet Apocalypse!)

Well, hello there! Hope you are doing well in this Covid19 crisis. I thought that since I have a little time to myself, I might as well check in and let you know that me and my clan are doing well, if not suffering a bit from cabin fever! It’s UK lock down day number “fuck knows anymore” as I find myself and my past routines totally gone out the window, and what I thought was going to be a productive time of writing, art, crafting, sculpting and other creative endeavors, but alas things have not gone to plan!

Pretty much most of my plans have been cancelled due to the dreaded corona, and my lock down experience has consisted of DIY jobs, Gardening and childcare duties.
Any spare time after that I could have done anything productive has had me beat and tired, so most of my stuff has stalled. Artistic/creative block is not great in this game, but during lock down, sales have been steady so I can’t complain!
I’m pretty sure that having ALL my fam under my feet, ALL the time, doesn’t give much quiet time to flourish creativity, so will be happy when the virus is a distant memory, and the new world emerges from the darkness.

Seriously, over the last few weeks I’ve dealt with, constant aggravation from various close family and those nearby, which I found quite amusing to begin with, only to me having to stop people from ragging each other! I won’t elaborate further, but I swear that this whole thing is sending people mad. I don’t joke as I say this, the community around me has a chaos factor that just simmers under the surface constantly as the collective frustration of family, friends and neighbors rises into a fetid puss filled blister or abscess, that I’m keeping out of as much as I can when all the shit kicks off! Time to get out the popcorn and get ringside seats here, cos’ that cyst is gonna pop its stinky rage filled load. All I can say, is that I have the beginnings of a good Whodunit novel! Certain people need to honestly calm the fook down and take some time to think of those around them, show some respect and be right, or things will not turn out well, and I’m not involving myself. It reminds me of an over population of caged rats, and how they turn on each other. Oh these stupid humans!! Come and take me away space brothers!!

My problems don’t end there. Had to shut any Ebay listings I had going (and loose out of loads of sales as a result) due to my local post office “friendly and helpful”staff giving me hassle for posting items out! They are quite possibly the worst, miserable little bitches to ever run a local post office. It’s not like I have ever been nasty or impolite to them, but with most of these snotty nosed pieces of shit types, would literally turn away customers, because they think they can “police”you to make sure you are only going out for essential food/medicine (which I assure you, I was doing at the same time). If I could post stuff out any other way, I would, deny them of my cash. Yes I can use UPS or Hermes, but unless I’m sending something substantial, I don’t use a courier. Besides, UPS and Herpes/Hermes aren’t that good a service in my opine, so they can go fuck as well!

I have though, managed some painting and modelling (not enough in my eyes) so I’ve got some eye candy coming for you if you like looking at painted miniature porn!
Also I am working on making some accompanying video to add to the posts. It won’t be anything special, but I see it as adding a little extra depth, I don’t think I’ll ever be a Youtube sensation or anything, but my eldest progeny have both offered their services to create me some titles and do some editing, so I can just film the footage I want and not have the hassle of editing vids.

Maybe I’ll get into the swing of getting nice looking footage uploaded on a regular basis overtime, but I’m not fussed overall and I’ll see how it goes.
You might be thinking I’m being rather negative about stuff, but I’m not too stressed and keeping my patience (I think doing a lot of work in my garden has mellowed me out) and I keep in mind, that at least I have a big garden to escape to, as there are entire families suffering worse than I right now, so I’m greatful for that.

I’ve never been one for constant social media updates, so me dropping off the map is not unusual for me, I did think it was about time for me to pop up and tell you I’m not dead yet! I’ve got probably a month’s worth of daily mini related posts in the wings, so check it out if it pops up on your internets!!

I do hope that you lot are fairing well during the crisis and hope you don’t all self destruct (if you are struggling with the situation) any time soon.

Stick with it and remember, I should be over soon. Then all we’ll have to do is deal with the worst global recession for something like 300 years (so they say!)

Keep grinning in the face of adversity and I’ll see you all soon!
