    I like The Martian, as may be evident from the fact I've watched it three or four times

    In fact, it seems I last watched it in January, which was the Before Times, so ages ago. Might watch it again soon

        Just watched The Crash Detectives - Series 2: Episode 2, following the Collison Investigation Unit of Gwent Police, on iPlayer… and it turned out to be about someone I knew

        He was killed last year when his car left the M4, which they concluded happened because he fell asleep at the wheel. He was one of my brother's oldest friends; they met at Oxford. He was a great bloke, a real character

        It's a bit unsettling when you watch one of these things and realise you knew the person who died

          And before that I watched the third episode of the Surgeons thing, about a double lung transplant and some dicey neurosurgery, both of which achieved happier endings.

                Dry (as in no current precipitation, making up for the overnight deluge).

                Grey sky.

                Sunless.

                Cool in here at 15.8 deg.

                999mBar and 67% RH.

                Wednesday.

                I think the scaffolders are here already.

                Oh deep joy.

                Bye bye house.

                  You rush to your phone and it's an automated scam call pretending to be from HMRC.

                  Like HMRC would call you before 9am...

                    Lovely walk earlier, got in just before the clouds arrived. A brief downpour has done its thing and now it's back to watching leaves fall off trees

                      Morning all

                      As noted by others, it seems to be a nice day today. Blue sky, some wispy cloud. Dry. Currently 11 degrees with an expected high od 13. Sadly 90% chance of rain from lunchtime onwards. Barometer steady at 999 mBar.

                      It's a bit chilly in my little office though so I've got the blow heater on.

                      First coffee has been drunk. I'm about to make another one.
                      I did a stroll around Windsor on 2 Oct for Alzheimer's Society. You can chuck me a few quid here if you like: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lmallen-1
