Hi lovely people
Any of you self isolating or any of you suffering with the Covid19 virus?
How are you coping?
My MS is kicking off, I think due to anxiety..
Anyone else feeling the same?
Another day of splendid isolation in Shadbolt Towers awaits. Thankfully, I have the enforced long-term company of the delightfully cheerful (so far) Mrs Shadbolt.
This update will be more MS and less of me making sideswipes at the Buffoon and the Orange Genius. I think we all r...
Apols for the delay. I ain't being paid and had a lie-in on fresh sheets. If you don't get it then I fear you never will. Fresh. Bedlinen. I am being stupid because, frankly, the entire world is barmy at the moment. Please indulge me.
I forget that unlike the enli...
Good morning folks,
Longish but hopefully not boring. I have put the really good stuff at the end so if you don't want the Dom waffle scroll to the middle part called MS and start from there.
Here is a quick rundown on the utter global havoc our little circular friend has managed to cause in the...
Read to the end for a present. Scroll past everything if you like to skip the daily homily.
Now we are all officially - I think, this govt is the flip-flop special edition one and not what most of us thought we had ordered. Watching the Buffoon prounounce daily feels like going...
He says, "I am interested to know if any of you who have COVID-19 are suffering from a persistent loss of smell and taste and how has it affected your life? Please let us know if smell training makes a difference."

Such a gorgeous day. Mrs S and I were out walking alongside the river just before 0700. A frost but the lovely sun. C was wrapped up, I was in shorts as my summer dress sense is driven by my inner-Canadian. 7.5km as halfway to the planned turning point we looked at one another and si...
Odd how there seems to be little mention of Covid-19 in Russia. It isn't known for information transparency and apparently there are c. 2800 cases in a massive country. Seems reliable info is hard to come by.
We interviewed Prog G today on his ...
You may have spotted that I completely forgot to do this today. Apologies.
MS Stuff that caught my eye. Quite a interesting post from Prof David Baker about whether or not a DMT may be a good thing to be on if you catch (you will) Covid-19. All theoretical and he tries to unpack the th...
BREAKING: How can the global MS community work together during COVID-19?
Howdy, everyone 🖐️ MS Reporter Dominic catches up with Aaron Boster MD for a very early video call stateside (sorry, Aaron). Their conversation addresses a number of questions we’v...
It is the weekend. Yay. V. important - I think - to try and distinguish the weekend when possible. It is all part of the routine that I and many others keep to stay sane. Mrs S is now officially on Easter hols so a very cheery mood all-round in mi casa.
BoJo HAS IT - really, you're not dreaming. I hope Rishi doesn't. Far from perfect but an order of magnitude better than the Buffoon. IMHO.
If you haven't seen the latest news our esteemed leader, the Tousled Haired Buffon, has tested positive for Covid-19. Whilst I wouldn't t...
Hej (Swedish today),
The Donald seems to think that nature understands the greatness of the US and has sped up the Covid-19 development there as a result. Apparently they are flattening the curve faster than anyone else and get back to normal pretty sharpish. He is an extraordinarily strange man....
Testing and vaccines and other things you may like.
Hi there. In a slight change to the daily updates – a self-imposed burden so no sympathy for me – I have settled on an occasional Covid-19 diary. This helps me as much as you as I now have a way to channel the instant sharing urge as I continuous...
Howdy (in the words of the inimitable Aaron Boster),
I watch my young neighbour go to and fro in their car and I can't help but wonder. The rational side of my brain tells me he must be doing something essential. Doesn't wear gloves.... Then he and his girlfriend appeared all dressed up a few even...
I am waiting for this sudden mist to burn off so I can do my walk in better visibility. In other news, my bread is getting better. Incrementally. After 3 weeks of living in one another's pockets, Mrs S and I have been rather techy with one another this morning. To be expected. Imagine our ...
