    Mundane laundry on (Time Saver program)


      Mundane laundry done and draped


        Last night's major motion picture, by the way, was Airport (1970), the original that spawned a series of increasingly regrettable sequels until the parody Airplane! finally persuaded them to stop. It turns out most of the clichés depicted in the latter don't actually happen in this one, presumably coming from those sequels, and it's really rather good


          Multi quote is still borked I see.

          I meant to do some laundry but it didn't happen. I have enough smalls and other clothings to keep me covered up so no need to fret.


            Beef scouse with a nice thick chunk of sesame bloomer for tea


              Sunday night is nostalgia night yet again with S1E5 of All Creatures Great and Small, Out of Practice (TV Episode 1978)

              Early night now.

              Goodnight all


                Morning all

                Dull and overcast, dry. It's brightening up a bit though. Currently 10 degrees ('feels like' 7) and will get up to 11 in a couple of hours' time. Change of rain at lunchtime. Barometer up to 1017 mBar.

                Today's Kantar diary fact is:
                Clothes rationing ends in Britain 1949






                  Warmish in here at 17.2 deg.

                  1022 mBar, 30.18 inHg, 53% RH.


                  Someone's polished that telex machine again.


                  Walk walked.

                  Heard a few woodpeckers pecking away, saw a couple of buzzards circling overhead, wondered why a grey tree rat was perched on a telephone wire muttering to itself.

                  Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons oat & barley toast, bramble jelly on crust of same, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  In other news: the sun's come out.


                  A small amount of potching in the garage.

                  Plus a massacre of the brambles around the gooseberry patch.

                  Tea: more of the roast chicken thighs with one sausage and a scrap of bacon, some tinned peaches and pear halves, a yog, and 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Entertainment: "Road Wars" the sky version of Traffic Cops.

                  Police Interceptors (Lincolnshire).

                  Traffic Cops: this one concentrating on bad driving by s.

                  It reminded me that Strangelove Pater should have stopped driving several years before he ended up in hospital having collapsed outside the back door.

                  But then again, it never occurred to any of us exactly what was wrong with him.

                  NCIS S16 E8 "Friendly Fire". More run of the mill stuff. Ooorah! and all that.

                  Next: more dirt on the Tory scum & their mates filling their boots.

                  When the fun stops, STOP.


                    Morning denizens

                    Grey but dry out, after a bit of rain last night. Currently 9°C heading for 11°, 1010/1018mB
