46 years old today and it's been a weird year. I thought the whole Covid thing was going to be substantially better but now that we're vaccinated and the borders are open it's the worst it's even been. I'm hoping this is my last pandemic. Also my home was flooded and we're still in that weird limbo where we have no idea when things will return to normal. My favourite teacher got dementia and then died. I'm not as social as I once was. I've become a bit of a home-body bordering on being a hermit. I did finish a first draft of a novel and write some TV scripts so it's not all bad news but so far as years in my live this is probably on the less satisfying end of the scale.
