    Sky's clearing a bit and it's turning sunny out

    There's a flagpole outside the secondary portion of the carpet shop over the road; I'm not sure it's ever had a flag on it before. But it's got a Union Flag at half-mast on it now

    I've got a very vague inkling that they might have done the same thing for the Queen Mother, but I'm not sure.

      Looks like I've made an £8 profit on the Grand National with Burrows Saint placing fourth

        Correction, £4. I'm rubbish at working out odds

          I think there may have been some rain as I saw people walking past with umbrellas up earlier. However, I can't say I noticed much and the ground is only mildly moist looking now I've looked out of the window.

            While the forecast was 15C, it felt considerably warmer in the sun when I walked to meet wifey from work.

            Was prompted to contact the guy who helped me navigate a decent payoff back in 2004 when I was perceived a threat to my boss's boss's boss's wife consultancy business (working in the same organisation... corruption is not dead). He confirmed many of my the suspicions I'd had at the time.

            Dinner is homemade pizza. Either heat concentrate chilli or I've put too much on. I've eaten half of it and my mouth is seriously burning....I'm scared... BEST PIZZA EVER!!!!!

            Currently watching a repeat of celebrity catchphrase we've not seen before. I assume it's a repeat - they're awfully close together.

              Bag of assorted shirts washed. It includes a couple of reputable ones, which I suppose will come in handy should the worst happen and I have to go down to London and work in person at the ministry

              Though for all I know they don't actually work in the ministry in normal times. Maybe they're in one of the innumerable office buildings the government has scattered around the capital. Anyway, I daresay they expect something more than t-shirt and jeans, though admittedly my knowledge of Civil Service dress codes comes primarily from watching Yes, Minister and The Thick of It

                Dinner is from Tasty Korea. Quite zingy!

                    Just watched Steve Martin's film, A Simple Twist of Fate. Very heartwarming - and funny, although it is a drama more than a comedy. (Disney+)

                      And very nice it was too, as usual
