    Dull and overcast but dry. Currently 5 degrees (allegedly foggy) with a forecast high of 10 later. Chance of rain this afternoon. Barometer steady at 2015 mBar. Average interior humidity 46%.

    First coffee being drunk.

      Murky out, can just about see half way down the garden.

      The Wife (tm) was up at 5.30am today for a meeting inside the M25 that started at 7.30, related to that virus thing some of you may have heard about. The last update on the meeting was sent out at 11.30pm yesterday which led to a lot of "f***ing" for an hour or so.

        Grey.

        Dark.

        Dank.

        Dire.

        Dreary.

        Damp.

        Drizzly.

        Sunless.

        14.7 deg in here.

        1016 mBar and 64% RH.

        Monday.

        The telex machine is shining particularly brightly this sunless morn.

        Very strange dreams again.

        Inneresting that the dreaming brain worked out that the lack of a season ticket for the railway journey to Swansea would require the purchase of a new ticket.

        Feck me that was odd.

          Morning.

          I've twinged my back doing some gardening yesterday.

          That'll teach me for working outside.

            Morning.

            Foggy.

            Apparently the entire day is going to be grey.

            High of 10 degrees currently 6 degrees and spitting.

            Why do workmen block the footpath off with a sign that it is closed and to use the other footpath at points you can't cross the road due to heavy flow of traffic meaning it is "safer" to walk in traffic?

              Trying to do summit about reclaiming lost footpaths. Been scanning some docs my local councillor lent me to see what's involved. OCR in OneNote 2016 is really brilliant, translates to text almost perfectly.

                Most recently I did my back in using a riddle to sift stones out of some soil.

                That taught me a lesson.

                  Just having a fresh baked croissant with jam and my third coffee of the morning.

                    Quite a refreshing night's sleep; I have a vague feeling there might have been some dreams here and there but can't remember any details, which suggests they weren't unsettling at least

                    Grey out, 8°C and looking damp, probably from fog or dew as it hasn't rained yet; likely to this afternoon though

                    And to add to the fun, the weather app has put up the snowflake ❄︎ for Friday and Saturday

                      Walk walked in the grey misty gloom.

                      Nice enough & dry, which was even betterer.

                      The mangoes were whispering "eat me, eat me" so I ate one and it was Very Nice, right on the edge of being overripe.

                      Lunch, in a few moments, once the sun (should there be such a thing) is over the yardarm, is to be: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons sunflower & pumpkin seed toast (crust, thick), bramble jelly on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      And once that's done with, it'll be time for a little more concreting in the tin shed.

                      Dunno if I've got enough concrete but time will tell.
