That was the year that was
The subhead may make sense to people who were in the UK a good long while ago. They’ll remember too the hassle of travel to “the continent,“ never mind the freedom to move around, work, marry, all of it. All gone now, and for what?
Highlights of the month:
- The fireplace still works, although good firewood at a reasonable price is becoming harder to find.
- Much more comfortable at my desk, thanks to an IR heating panel.
- Flattered to be asked to read and comment on a friend’s new novel in draft.
- A1 annual medical checkup.
- Fun excursions to the countryside and to the beach.
- Excellent Christmas food, extended through the week.
Third month in a row that I have closed all rings every day. Haven’t missed a day so far, gaining the 100 Move Goals award yesterday. Gotta keep that streak going (but continuing to illustrate it is a pain for all concerned).

The frantic push that almost always characterises the end of the year characterised the end of the year again, and most of it got done. Anything that didn’t get done was solidly down to the clients generally taking more time off than mere workers like me.
Probably I won’t do a yearly round-up, but just for fun, in 2020 I logged a total of 1641 hours over 307 days. But not all of that is work work by any stretch of the imagination.

Seven new posts, almost all after the December work rush had finished. Seven old posts brought in too, one given a new date because. As usual, giving them some love here:
- Food News (new series) 10: Neo-artisans
- The Fornacalia breads
- Hamelman’s Semolina with a whole-grain soaker
- In a ferment
- A Swedish Rye with raisins
- 📖 The Shangri-La Diet ✍
- Trams that pass in the morning
None, if I present my positive side. (I mean, there are some, but I’m not complaining.) I’m going to make the move away from Exist later today, probably to Day One.
Ad ardua per astra.
