I’m back to work, again: and having a long weekend of it!
As part of a short week!
Granted, that means I’ll have less pay next week: and, yes, before you ask, I AM putting in for other jobs.
Who knows what’ll happen, there.
At any rate?
Yes, I’ve had a short week.
But, yes: I managed to watch a film: and catch the opening episodes of Stranger Things.
That’s a rather fun piece of TV …

† Scary doesn’t start, Debbi: I’m just glad I don’t have a smart TV. None of them can record, for a start! I DO know Wikileaks is going to be giving the relevant files to the various tech companies involved: before they publication. (Talking of scary, have you seen Stranger Things? It’s set in 1983: and there’s a scary amount of typewriters around. AND people smoking!)
