Quarantine – Week One.

Self Isolating before it was popular.
Monday 2020/3/16

Went to work for a meeting and to start shutting things down. No announcement had yesterday been made, but it was obvious something was coming.

Tuesday 2020/3/17

Stayed home, took part in some teaching chats. Did some admin. Took dog to park.

Wednesday 2020/3/18

Sister’s birthday – one for her to remember. Had to go to work to check on some parts, effectively pointless as co-worker had no interest. Saw both Alan and Tony, neither should have been on transport due to their ages. Shut down the lab. Announced I’d not be in for at least two weeks – working from home

Thursday 2020/3/19

Working from home, more teaching chats and worked on tomography code. Took dog to park. Got the email I’d expected, work is closed for the foreseeable future. Work from home where possible.

Friday 2020/3/20

WFH. Catching up on email backlog.

Saturday 2020/3/21

Took down tree behind the shed. Last meter or so was still standing. Cut back brush growth and took tree down to just above ground level. Set up telescope, clouded out.

Sunday 2020/3/22

Took dog for long walk, central park and chase. Telescope set up, 3 hours on M82, and 20 min on comet C/2017 T2 PANSTARRS.
