Going Forward Then Boldly?

My Covid is slowly abating thank goodness though I am pretty fatigued so my plan for world domination is going to be delayed again ever so slightly. Everything aches but I am just about functional though a little bit more chaotic than usual. My brains a bit fried so i may not be too creative right now. I haven’t seen the Aurora. There might be a slight chance of it being visible tonight though I am not holding my breath. I notice that in the last couple of years a lot of internet content seems to be disappearing behind paywalls which is a shame as it means I no longer get to see a lot of stuff as an older person(pensioner/senior) on a limited income I simple can’t afford to set up multiple subscriptions for stuff much as I would like to be able to support independent writers and journalists.

I am feeling better but very fatigued and hopefully the Covid is almost gone. It peaked on the day I actually got the positive test result, so its lasted about 9 days from start to finish. That’s not to bad as when I had it in 2022 it was very severe and I was ill for nearly 3 weeks. Also then it left me quite wobbly and fatigued for about a month. Last night I glanced a loft a couple of times but alas no aurora. I also watched a few minutes of the new Dr Who. I expect I give that a go on Iplayer at some point. I also thought I would listen to the Eurovision winning song. Not really my sort of thing being an ageing Prog rock, Folk and Jazz/ Classical music fan. But clever production and all that. As for the dancing up and down the weird wobbly disc thing, fair play but Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers would have done it better. Also would not have worn those shoes with that frock 😉
