    Stairs & landing redecorated. Painkillers & wine the order of the day now.
    …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


      Tea: spag with the last of the bol from the freezer, orange segments & custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

      Entertainment: HSB S5 E18: "El Capitan " wherein Ray gets to be in charge for a day whilst Frank is in some sort of encounter group with the other captains and Fletcher Daniels.

      HSB S5 E19 "The Life and Time of Dominic Florio Jr. " wherein LaRue and Washington get involved with a porn film director (Brent "Data" Spiner) and Renko freezes. A woman loses a baby when she's assaulted by a right to lifer outside an abortion clinic.

      HSB S5 E20 "G.Q. " wherein Hill refuses to ride with Renko and Joyce does more to prove a perp innocent than the actual PD does.

      The Pacific War in color on Smithsonian.

      Just did Okinawa.

      Now we're on to nuking things that we haven't fire bombed to ashes.

      When the fun stops, STOP.


        *looks at time* No wonder I've started making more mistakes than anything else

        Time to abandon work for the night I think

        Tomorrow's Zoom call is in the morning for the benefit of the New Zealanders, so I have to get a reasonably early night tonight


          Entertainment(continued): Weird or What? with the Wig Wearing War Criminals Avatar.

          All about giant chunks of ice falling from the heavens, how a chap managed to survive falling 400 feet from the top of a sky scraper on a window cleaning thing, and where all these trainers that get found on the beach come from, since 7 of them were found to have feet inside them.

            Supper was a couple of Southern not-fried chicken thighs, as they were quick and easy to cook

            And despite the late hour, I squeezed in a couple more episodes of The Sopranos: S1E4 Meadowlands (TV Episode 1999) and S1E5 College (TV Episode 1999)

            The rain finally ended, though it's predicted to return on Monday.

            Goodnight all


              Morning all
              …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


                Morning denizens

                Lot of high cloud today, with gaps here and there letting the sun in from time to time, though they seem to be closing up now. Revised forecast now speaks of a moderate chance of rain this afternoon. 16°C at the moment, but unlikely to break 20° it seems

                Extended family Zoom call is at ten


                  Morning all


                  White sky.




                  Rain verging on torrential from time to time.

                  Going by what the wireless is putting out, it must be Sunday again.

                  Note to self: by heck those beans I had yesterday had a lot of wind in them.


                  Just cracked the bog with a hypersonic turd due to the excess wind.

                      Sun's out.

                      There's A Funny Smell in the Salting House.

                      I wonder if sommat's fallen down behind the fridge.

                      Roast chicken breast (M&S BBE some time in 2013) for lunch.

                      Found really deep down in the freezer, along with two or three legs of lamb (not quite so old) and more cartons of gooseberries (green, variously dated 2012 and 2013 gratis Strangelove Mater).

                      There's stuff down there I've never excavated down far enough to find.

                      'ere, NF, the lightning thing was showing strikes not far from you yesterday evening.
