Only Fools and Houses

Only Fools and Houses
So on an Easter Sunday that also coincides with my mother's birthday, I am not able to see here except through the wonders of modern technology.

K-nackered

 So, it might be Wednesday evening, and therefore you could argue that the back of the week has been broken, but I am well and truly knackered. Getting in late is one thing, but this bloody virus keeping everyone awake is a right royal pain in the @rse! I can't have had more than 20 minutes of unbroken sleep last night, or at least it didn't s...
