The Self Isolation Diaries

Note: I cannot directly talk about the COVID-19 situation specific to my work, if that is what you want then you need to speak to the Communications team at BHRUT. If anything, I know only what’s in the press anyway because I’ve been pretty much solidly only in the company of cats for a week.... Continue Reading →

The Virus That Shall Not Be Named

There's not an awful lot to say for the weekly update this time around. A lot happened but nothing I would particularly wish to write about.

The Sneezing Dead

This week I found myself speaking on three separate occasions to groups of people about the mortuary. On Tuesday it was a very large group, Thursday only four people and then on Friday I stood in a lecture hall with about 15. I didn’t count the exact number of the group on Tuesday but I...
