    There being an insufficient supply of the Valhalla stuff until the powers that be deign to release more, it was back to Bron/Broen tonight, to wit, S1E1 (TV Episode 2013) and S1E2 (TV Episode 2013)

    Been raining fairly steadily, but its easing off now

    Goodnight all


      Morning all

      Dull and wet but not actively precipitating at this moment. It's a balmy 9 degrees at the moment and will claw its way to 10 later. The sun may make an appearance but its mostly going to remain cloudly. Low chance of rain. Barometer down to 986 mBar.

      First coffee made and awaiting its fate.

      It's Christmas jumper day today. So I am wearing one of the two I own. We have a Christmas quiz this afternoon between us consultancy sorts and the client. I need to find a good 'bah humbug' Teams background.

        TFIF, etc.
        Grey and murky out, but no rain on the 6km walk.

          We didn't watch it last night, saving it for tonight or tomorrow.

            Keep an eye out for the Crowborough Giraffes, and if you see any, let Baskerville know.

                Warmer at 15.8 deg in here.

                985 mBar and 60% RH.


                Smalls in the WM, should be ready for the TD about now.


                Smalls out of the WM and into the TD.

                Shirts in the WM.

                It's not looking promising from a walk point of view at the moment.


                Shirts out of the WM and into the TD.

                Cottons in the WM.


                Walk walked wherein it rained upon me.

                Shirts out of the TD and roughly ironed as best as I can.

                Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red corner yog, Tesco lattice top mince pie, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                The overwhelming greyness has lifted slightly and an occasional beam of wan sunlight has shone here & there.


                Cottons out of the TD & airing on the banisters.

                More potching achieved on the tin shed, increasingly raising the question of why I'm bothering. (it's sommat to do is the answer).

                Afternoon entertainment: Trucking Hell.

                Tea: Tesco chunky breaded haddock, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                Entertainment: Walking Britain's Lost Railways: Cotswolds on 5.

                      Grey out, 8°C, but everywhere still looks very damp after the rain overnight. Apparently there's a small chance of further showers for the next hour or two, but other than that the rest of the day will remain much the same

                      Should have been heading off somewhere for the CUK Xmas Do today, probably; this time last year I was preparing to travel to Manchester
