    Morning all
    Blue skies and sunny here. Shame I have to work.

      Morning denizens

      Thin high cloud here, but the sun's already getting through the thinner bits

      Currently on 14°C, heading for 20° today, and forecast to be over 30° by the end of the week

        Morning all

        Cloudy with blue bits and a stiff breeze.

        Thai Green Curry for dinner last night. Needed more chilli.

        Went out and watched the ISS going over, surprisingly bright given it wasn't really very dark a that point. Thought it would be a washout with the cloud we'd had all day but it cleared up nicely in the last hour or so beforehand.

        1st coffee drunk.

        1st email from client co. PM requesting something stupid. It's a good job I drank the coffee before reading it.

          Morning all

          Overcast here. Weather app claims it's partly cloudy. Currently 16 degrees with a forecast high of 20 later. Humid with a low chance of rain. Barometer at 1010 mBar, a smidge up on yesterday.

          Second coffee being drunk.

            Morning all

            Not awake at stupid o'clock today.

            Dry.

            White sky with blue patches.

            Sunless.

            Cooler at 19.7 deg.

            1012 on the barometer.

            Tuesday apparently.

            Bucketloads of apples to transport to the needful doings of the compost heap.

            If it stays fine I might take a walk.
            When the fun stops, STOP.

              Getting breezier, BBC says 40mph+ by lunch time.

              It's making it interesting for the starlings on the bird feeders. Still managed to empty two of them of fat balls this morning.

              Will have to make a trip to the local discount store to replenish stocks at some point. It's worse than trying to keep the fridge full when there are teenagers around.

                Actually we didn't have an equivalent, which seems remiss but what can you do in 4 minutes? Apart from move all the MPs into underground bunkers with fit breeding age females (yep that was part of the plan, repopulated via Boris).

                We could commandeer the airwaves.

                Possibly the last thing you would remember was the BBC being interrupted by :


                This is the Wartime Broadcasting Service. This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons. Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known. We shall bring you further information as soon as possible. Meanwhile, stay tuned to this wavelength, stay calm and stay in your own house.

                  Walk walked.

                  20 buckets of windfall apples consigned to the compost heap.

                  Lunch: lentil <pffffft> soup, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Sun's out.

                    Plenty of mines around here back then, no Mine Gap.

                    We didn't have "Duck & Cover" either, though I do remember the air raid warning tests happening quite regularly and the Vulcans flying up the valley, there's tidy then, boyo, on their way to bomb the tulipe out of Eppynt..
