    However, that does mean I need to make sure my patio bench is covered up.


      HWMBO and I had a little BBQ out there last night, you see. Very tasty it was too.


        And I've had to tell HWMBO that the freezer is full so he can't do too much overcooking.


          I think if we eat the three tubs of icecream, that'll help.


            Phew! Made it.


              Morning denizens

              Grey start out, officially described as "haze", and a mere 18°C

              Still 24° in here, despite open windows

              It's supposed to get a bit sunnier soon, and our possible thunderstorm this afternoon (which had been withdrawn) is back at a 50% probability


                Entertainment (continued):

                The Prisoner E7 "Dance of the Dead " wherein our hero is judged & found wanting.

                The Prisoner E8 "Checkmate " wherein our hero builds a radio transmitter and stuff.

                Also the commentary on E7 which was rather more inneresting than the previous two commentaries.

                Commentary on "Den of Thieves"* or "how we used a million blank cartridges in a film" and "how I know all these gnarly dudes who would cut your head off for $15".

                White sky.

                Hot. 23.1 deg in here.


                *The SAW is incorrectly identified as being "50 Cal" in the commentary.

                      Cooler start with some rain this morning, now warming up again. White sky and hot sunshine.

                      Today's job was to replace the compressor fan motor in the fridge freezer. The old one was getting on for 20 years old, so it's not had a bad run, especially considering the amount of crap that had accumulated inside the housing.

                      Dog got all excited and roused herself from her bed thinking her favourite post lady was at the door (she has dog treats) but was disappointed to find out it was just the DPD driver.
