      The landlord needed a photo of the flat's fusebox as he's planning to get them all replaced with modern ones over the next few months. Unfortunately, it's in the far corner of the living room, low down, behind the spot where I have a shelving unit where things like the router and printer live, the rest of the alcove it's in being a resting places for large boxes of stuff. Just had to shift loads of stuff so I could get in there, take a photo of what just looks like a standard 1980s fusebox, then shift everything back again

      I also decided on a coffee-related experiment today. I realised that the main reason I have a double-strength mug of coffee (14g) first thing is because it used to set me up for the seventy mile drive to ExClientCo, but I don't do that any more. So I thought I'd split it over two 7g mugs, thereby spreading it over the morning rather than getting a massive caffeine jolt first thing.

      Turns out I prefer, and possibly even need, a massive caffeine jolt first thing; especially if I'm going to start shifting boxes back and forth when the day's hardly started

        Possibly the wrong day to try such an experiment

        Have another go on a gentler day.

          Duw there's posh then, mine looks very much like a 1960s fusebox. <- fusebox.

          No rcd either. Saves on those nuisance trips when the cooker rings play up.

          Walk walked.

          Rather longer than usual due to OpenReach restringing telephone cables on the road up to the res.

          I'd noted the bushes/trees along the road had been trimmed back as I walked the walk yesterday.

          Since the revised route took me to town, I discovered that the dentist has reopened for extractions and the hairdresser at the top of the road is open too.

          Might be time for the Number 1 all over experience since the incipient pony tail is becoming rather annoying.

          The Hair hasn't been this long in 40 years.

          Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast (crust, not as thick as the previous one), prune yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              Apparently he had a new tenant lined up for the ground floor back, the family who lived there having moved out just as lockdown started back in March. Then he discovered he now needed some kind of electrical certificate, like the gas one, before he could let the place; so he's having to get the electrics for all the flats sorted out

              Still no haircuts available round here. Mine has gone extremely wild and wavy, a bit like that famous photo of Einstein, except for that the photographer messed up his hair on purpose whereas mine does it naturally

                Definitely a good idea to wait until I don't have anything much to do, I think

                  Lunch has been chicken & barley soup, with assorted bits of bread. Very tasty, very filling

                  A bit sunny out now, 20°C but there seems to be a light breeze to keep things tolerable

                    Lunch was some leftovers of the Lebanese variety from a delivery we had recently. Lots of babaganoush, hummous, tabbouleh.

                      Aldi West Country Chedder Beef Burger for lunch. Great idea ruined by poor quality meat.
