    Lunch: Heinz tomato soup with wholemeal bread

    Comment


      Up to 26°C outside now; a mere 23.8° within though, and there's a very light cool breeze drifting in through the window from time to time

        30C in the shade outside here

          Evening all

          Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed Hovis Seed Sensations toast (not crust since it was thinner than the slice), bramble jelly on same, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

          The afternoon has involved variously cuddling the cat, potching about in various sheds rearranging stuff.

          There's more room in next door's shed now and some crap has been bagged up for disposal from the garage.

          Also donated a couple of bags of sticks to the lady next door but one (the one that I fancy).

          Found some ancient bakelite electrical fittings in the little shed that must have been there for half a century or more, from the days when you plugged the electric iron into the light socket.

          Included three switched dual bayonet fittings that might just get pressed into use if it wasn't for them being rather tight in a modern fitting.
          When the fun stops, STOP.

            Well... I do sometimes wonder

            This visit was planned as a major crap clearing exercise. He doesn't drive so getting rid of stuff either to storage or the tip isn't easy.

              Temp down to 23C, I'm on a go-live call.

                After a day of moving stuff about, opening boxes, having a laugh at ancient serial cables and questioning whether copies of Custom PC from 2009 were still relevant, we have achieved: a huge mess! Never made it to the tip as we realised at 1545 that it closed at 1600.

                Magazines that were to be kept have been sorted into date order.

                Clothes no longer needed are bundled for the fabric recycling.

                Various household bits and trinkets have been put aside to take to a charity shop.

                Much, much cardboard flattened down.

                A stash of aluminium parts and copper heat sinks have been put to one side to find a more suitable recycling solution than land fill.

                But to look at the flat, you'd think a bomb had hit. Although there is order to the chaos an outsider would struggle to fathom it.

                  Still not done?
