Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Three

[That’s Eighty Six Degrees Fahrenheit, Warriors]

It is a scorching thirty degrees C out here in Noord Nederland and without airco, it’s absolutely miserable.

In fact, I was about to go to bed – teeth flossed, medication taken – when I remembered I hadn’t posted today.


But first the news:

It’s late so there’s really only one thing I want to add to all that.

[Today Was Not a Good Day]

Today’s official title makes that song start in my head like an earworm that won’t die and that sucks because today was NOT a good day. Starting from the moment I woke up.
