They are being encouraged not to but there is a list of reasons for which they can, including on campus learning. Her and some of her flatmates have decided to go back. A month at home was enough for her, plus our internet is shit here out in the sticks.

Maybe my memory is wrong but hasn't she had Covid already?
If she has, as far as I understand it, there's very little chance of getting it again.

Repaired the light blocking foam in my camera.

I'm going to go get some film after work.

This was making the right hand side of images hazy red. The mirror foam had a chunk missing. When I touched it, the foam disintegrated.

Brand new foam there, and on the door at the back. We'll see if that makes a change.

Going to take some "oldschool" car shots. Bought a couple rolls of Kodak ASA 400 (only speed they had) and have a go.

Dropped the van off to this place. They want £50 plus vat to test drive it and tell me the diff and flywheel are fucked.
Great service though. Nine ramps and if I give them the go ahead they can start straight away.
He did tell me the genuine ford dmfs are only £120 quid. He also said they are made of tin and are total shit. 40k miles isn't uncommon. He's seen them with less than 10k.
Deep joy.

I bought the older version of the custom with 20k on it rather than the new version with higher miles.
Reason being I did 125k in my 2010 mk7 tranny with the same engine and box and I didn't have a single fucking problem. I only got rid because it was shabby with rust. A mate bought it, resprayed it and turned it into a day van with big alloys etc. Still looks smart and still going strong.
