Hello again. I hope you’re all doing ok – especially my friends and followers in the USA, all our thoughts are with you right now. Black Lives Matter and there are many ways to get involved and show your support, while those taking advantage of peaceful protests to cause destruction and misery have no respect for peace and equality. I sincerely hope that stability and civility is restored very soon. We should all be pulling together at all times, but it’s more important than ever during this pandemic.
Here in England, our lockdown has been eased in recent days, even though many scientists, including some of the government’s own advisors, feel too much is being done too soon. And if the experts are wary, then so am I, because I trust their judgement the most. So I’m going to continue staying locked down while we wait to see what happens, and until doctors and scientists can reassure us that it really is safer out there. It’s important for me because I live with my mother, who is elderly and blind, so the last thing I want is to bring the virus home and infect her, so that she ends up in hospital where I can’t visit her. So I’m staying indoors to keep her safe, that’s my priority.
And while I’m doing that, I’m still keeping myself entertained, which is taking my mind off the news very effectively as usual. So I hope this week’s post and video, which as always doesn’t contain anything sponsored or gifted, is a nice distraction for you too!

January 2021 Introduction:
Welcome to another set of edited highlights from my old journals. I’m combining 2 months together here, as I didn’t write a huge amount for each.
At this time I was in the early stages of a new temporary job with my local council, working in their Printing department. There wasn’t always a lot to say about it, and there are some details I’ve left out for confidentiality, but you’ll still get a good sense of how I was getting on. And as always there’s plenty of entertainment I was enjoying, plus there’s another top 100 list from the TV, about music videos this time. So I hope you enjoy this little look back as always!

November 2020 Introduction:
Here’s the next bunch of posts from my old Bolt journal. I’ve combined 2 months together here, as my entries for both were fairly short while I was busy with university work. So here you’ll find out about my latest exam result, more DVDs and music that I was buying, and which of our sitcoms were voted the best by the British public. I hope you enjoy!

October 2020 Introduction:
We’ve made it to the end of my second year of Bolt journal entries. I figured I may as well combine the last 2 months of the year, as I didn’t write a lot for November. As usual I talk about university, the latest DVDs I’ve been buying and the TV I’ve been enjoying. Plus there’s another top 100 list and a few of the stranger news stories that caught my attention, and of course there’s Christmas and a brief review of the year. So I hope you enjoy!

August 2020 Introduction:
Here are some more extracts from my old Bolt journal. You know what to expect by now – university work, socialising, CDs, DVDs, gaming, TV, etc. This wasn’t a very eventful month, but I did share a couple of interesting top 100 lists, and my favourite moments from Children In Need, among other little bits and pieces. So I hope you enjoy!

July 2020 Introduction:
Here’s another selection of posts from my old Bolt journal. Being at home on my summer holiday from university, there wasn’t very much to write about, so I’ve combined 2 months in one post here as they were relatively short. There are still a few points of interest though, including a house invader, a fun charity event, a surprise from my university, my birthday, a bit more sport that caught my attention, and some more music and DVDs that I bought. So I hope you enjoy!
