First thing this morning, Disco Dave sent me a video birthday message on WhatsApp. Disco, being the father of 3 young girls, has an encyclopaedic knowledge of videos that YouTube would never consider adding to my “Up Next” list. This one involves a silly song (they always involve a silly song) about a cat licking my birthday cake.
He goes on to assert that Baileys (of which he has been known to partake) is widely-known to improve video-editing skills by 13%.
I myself am fairly sure that one’s video-editing skills improve by a percentage roughly equal to the ABV of the drink you’re currently having. So I went straight to the limoncello this morning.
Shortly afterwards I remembered that I wasn’t going to be doing any video-editing today.
Managed to leave the house today. I made a trip to the supermarket (two supermarkets, a local grocery store and a corner shop, actually) and got some shopping for mum. Which therefore entitled me to legitimate house-leaving on two distinct grounds: “shopping for essentials” and “providing care to the elderly” (no offence mum).
Technically I got some exercise too, since my car was parked at the top of the hill.
So, the only cakes I got today were cake-emojis. Although in a furtive doorstep-shopping-bag-exchange with my mum I got a couple of birthday cards and a beef roast. She got a couple of cans of condensed milk and some small-headed broccoli. I am still unsure as to what recipe requires this combination.
I’m only joking about the limoncello, dear reader. I didn’t start on it until after dinner.
Stay healthy everyone!
One thought on “The C-19 Diaries. Birthday in Lockdown.”
After a few more days of lockdown, limoncello in the morning will start to make a whole lot of sense.
