    Summary: Hilarious account detailing 57 days of corona virus lockdown by way of daily texts to his daughter that ended up going viral.

    Bringing a smile by taking a different view. Introducing humour and leading the reader through a slow realisation that we have all been affected in the funniest ways if only we would stop to think about it.

    After the first page a smile will creep across your face, by page two you will be hooked.

    Written by A technophobic old fart that has trouble programming a dishwasher who was pushed into writing a blog using modern technology during forced isolation. Funny, or insane? You decide.

    Peter is a Carnivore with vegetarian tendencies. (Sometimes meat needs a garnish). BBQ enthusiast, Father to a wayward daughter, Husband to a fiery Greek philosopher and muse. Owner of two unfit overweight dogs, part time writer and full-time couch potato.

    Laugh at him, or with him. Either way, you will probably end up laughing at yourself too.
