    Morning all

    Dry and bright but near full cloud cover. Currently 2 degrees ('feels like' -1) and due to reach 5 later. Rain expected late afternoon. Barometer down to 1025 mBar.

    Clothes have dried and have been put away. Bed stripped and first load (under sheet and pillow cases) in the WM on a 60 degree cycle.

    Now listening to BH on R4.

      Yippee - google finally got their arse into gear and something I was working on a while ago has finally gone live Zing Price Checker - Chrome Web Store

      Useful if you buy crap from amazon as it's often cheaper to buy from one of their european sites even after amazon's delivery fee and this addon tells me where it's cheapest.

        Laundry #1 is out and hung up. Laundry #2 (duvet cover) is in the WM.


          Hmm... a quick shifty at the weather forecast shows that the rain is likely to come a bit earlier and the chance of rain has gone from 50% to 90%.

          I guess I ought to get out for a walk sooner than later if I'm going to do such a thing.


            Last day prior to self isolation.



              Slightly warmer out.

              4 degrees and 96% chance of rain.

                It wasn't raining when I emptied the bins and recycling outside though.

                  Afternoon denizens

                  Grey day out, but a comparatively mild 3°C and forecast to rise through the night, with 12° tomorrow

                  Rain will be arriving soon too and staying for the night, though

                  Atmospheric pressure is reported as 1009/1017mB.

                    Rain's arrived


                      Walked with loony lady 1 and loony lady 2 today. Glad to get back to me little puppet parrot.
