        There's a vast collection of junk that needs disposing of.
        And so it transpired, though a bumble bee prevented access to one shed, so I buggered off down the garden to the other shed & pottered about transferring various bits & bobs thencely to the garage which is now fuller than ever.

        I seem to have a remarkable number of gear pullers.

        Found an octal relay socket during my sojourn, which would have saved me about £3 if I'd known.

        Then again, it'll never get used so it matters little.

        Also found the remains of a Tandon 252 HD which was the first hd I bought and the first one to bite the dust.

        IIRC it started seeking track 0 a lot & finally died the death shortly after I'd got all the data off it.

        "All" being a relative term, really.

        lunch was panini and a couple of beers in the local's garden.

          Just remembered the thing the doctor had set up whereby I could just call the pharmacy to order my monthly drugs (or even just turn up and wait for them) has expired, so I needed to do it through the surgery website. Shame, it was quite convenient doing it that way.

          I think I'm due for a medication review after this month, but whether they'll actually expect me to go all the way next door for it or just do it over the phone remains to be seen. They do these blood tests once a year too, but looking back through the calendar it seems they last happened in February, so there's a good chance the medication review won't even happen and they'll just wave it through.

            Sounds like a remake of The Swarm (1978)

              Nearly time for the Apple Event. From the tagline "Time Flies" I'm assuming this one is mostly about a new model of Apple Watch that can tell the time faster or something

                Years ago I would have watched it - nowadays I'm meh.

                My iphone 11 and apple watch series 3 will last a few more years.

                  All done for the day.

                  I'm hoping I didn't scare off the new BA who joined today and is taking on one of my projects Maybe I should have done a better job of turd polishing to at least give them a small sense of hope.

                      O2 sensor in the Watch 6 and blood oxygen level recording in the Health app. Quite handy for the strange days in which we live, though my Watch 3 is fine for now
