Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
It's been mostly updating computers for me over the past couple of days. The Windows 10 ones (dual boot on my laptop and a hardly ever used tablet of dad's) took ages (probably not helped by it being ages since I last updated) to go though with lots of errors and retries before everything got updated. I then decided to get rid of the annoying Avast Free which popped up messages on my lap top every time I used Window and I guess I must have installed ages ago but can't remember why... That gave me another fight in trying to get Defender AV to run - loads of web searches and KB articles before I found the solution... Anyway, all's OK now.

A little task for today is do agree on a location with mum and screw a small safe to a study wall. It's probably something we should have thought about a long while ago. There's not a lot but there are things that shouldn't really be left lying around for anyone to casually pick up.

And I've added yet another camera to the system. We had got a cheap stand alone baby monitor for the bedroom but, even after I tried adding an IR light, its night vision was poor and mum could complain that all she saw was fog if she looked in on dad at night. I've put another of the Annke POE ones in there instead.

Anyway, the weather (cool but damp and muggy when it's not raining) looks as if it should improve mid next week so I should be spending more time outside soon. First task will be mowing again...

Lots of flowers on my tomatoes now so hopefully not too long before I start getting some fruit.
