      My countdown app is telling me it's 141 days until my retirement...
      week days or days?

      Either way have a as the countdown begins.
      merely at clientco for the entertainment

        Full days.

        I'm not wishing my life away (much), but it's comforting to open it up and see a real number.

        And the fact it is falling in the next financial year is just pure coincidence...

          Morning all

          It's a bit dull and overcast out but dry at the moment. It's currently 11 degrees and will reach 12 later. Very low chance of rain this evening but it's unlikely the sun will make an appearance. Barometer is at 1008 mBar.

          First coffee being supped.

          Slept very well and didn't wake in the night at all. Unheard of for, possibly, months. Gentle awakenings from Radio 4 which managed to find a slot for the one news story that wasn't about covid, b****t or cummings.



            Grey though warm out for November (10 degrees). Daytime high of 12 and over night low of 11 degrees. Apparently it is going to be arm until Thursday so in theory if it doesn't rain I will need to get the lawn mower out to deal with the grass that doesn't stop growing.

              It didn't rain while we were out, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a mucky walk. Have made it back in, but the sky is rather foreboding.

                Cool, light breeze, blue holes in the sky.

                MrsB's birthday today, she's 28 (again). Presents opened and breakfast provided.

                Got a couple of hours now until the delayed interview with a prospective client B.

                Pimp is keen on this one. 3 calls last week to make sure I was still interested and ready for the interview. We'll see how it goes.

                    Darn it. Constant noise all the time and it looks like the old couple next door have had an air source heat pump installed. There's a box on the ground and an aluminium duct going into their wall. Gonna be a pain when I'm in the garden.

                      Grey day out, with some rain earlier leaving the place looking rather soggy, and not that warm at 9°C

                      Should remain dry until teatime though, and temperatures may soar to 10° in time for my planned walk via the chemist's for the monthly prescription
