    Clear skies overnight meant an amazing bit of stargazing
    That Orion keeps hanging around outside my office window. Rather leaned over, he's obviously been drinking.

    Meanwhile on the 7th of March 2019 the Strangelove garage was full of crap moved from next door, including over 60 years of railway magazines (which went to meet the recycling eventually).

    Smalls in the WM.

    Smalls out of the WM & pegged out on the line. Not that much drying will happen but it's the thought that counts.

    Entertainment: thing on R4 about Hendrix.

    TWAO.

    Shirts in off the line as it started picking with rain, now in the TD.

    Then it fecking poured just to fecking piss me right fecking off, so everything is now wetter than it was when I put it out, mother****er.

    Shirts out of the TD and roughly iRoned, whilst yet more fecking rain rained on the stuff that was still out there.

    Smalls in off the line wetter than they fecking were going out: now in TD.

    Smalls out of TD & airing upstairs.

    Cottons in off the line & in the TD.

    That funny red light on the TD came on so I cleaned the filter. The vac didn't have much suck coz I put it back together wrong when I changed the bag.

    Lot more water out of the TD this week.

    Bit more cleaning of the springs in the living room.

    Tea: battered ?cod?, the last of the mango slices, a yog, 0.91*1.729 pints of good Glengettie tea.

Bought: $16k, Total: $20k256, Sold: $22k5, the buyer didn't even bother to make an offer he just paid the asking price.

    Yes, we had a bit of a spate of them until they sorted out the substation

    The car earlier was a Lotus Elan, and very nice too. And the gold diggers had their usual ups and downs. I don't now why any of them are even surprised any more when their machinery breaks down, because it seems to happen all the time

    And then a couple of episodes of The Repair Shop

    I've neglected this of late and they've been turning them out like there's no tomorrow while my back was turned: series 9, which I thought was done and dusted as we were on to series 10, is now up to episode 40; and I currently have 24 unwatched episodes across the two series

    Goodnight all

    Ah, the shade of Mr Trebus (and John Peel) is with us yet.

    Tea: peppery sausage and onion casserole with chips and peas

    The rain ended a while ago, and now it's getting fairly chilly out there compared to the fairly luxurious November we've been having

    The wind has gotten up and there's been a few showers off and on.

    It's dark now so I am unable to see the weather any more.

    Currently checking if a report written from a new database matches a report written from the old one. Spoiler alert: it doesn't
