    and done, after months of moving goalposts its suddenly urgent. Hours fixing the screw ups.

    And so to bed!

      Morning denizens

      The sun didn't wake me early as it's keeping a low profile behind heavy overcast this morning, with rain expected off and on for much of the morning

      Currently 4°C and maybe reaching 11° when it brightens up a little this afternoon; 995/1003mB, so holding steady in that department.

      My Sainsbury's delivery will be coming quite late tonight but should be here by about twenty to eleven.

        Morning.

        Damp.

        Grey with white sky.

        Wanly sunny.

        Colder at 16.7 deg in here.

        1005 mBar, 29.68 in Hg, 53% RH.

        Apparently it's Thursday but as it's a BH week, the recycling & waste disposal engineers call tomorrow.

        <hiatus>

        Walk walked in the sunshine.

        Slightly more water in the res, and there were a couple of chaps with a theodolite measuring the dam between the top & the valve thing halfway down.

        Lunch: Heinz ham & pea soup with Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

        <hiatus>

        Entertainment: "Discovering Charles Bronson" on Sky Arts.

        Cooking the next batch of bol with some minced lamb. I wonder how that'll turn out.

        I'd have cooked the next batch of chilli con carne but I've an insufficiency on onions, the last being bad.

        Entertainment: "Trucking Hell" S2 E4. Is Rory in this one? Yeeeessss! Towing a borked cab to the scrappy.

        Digger fallen off a low loader on the A6: Steve Kelly.

        The bol being portioned up, a visit to Morrisons obtained further supplies of onions.

        The one chose for the chilli proved to be good in parts after I'd added it to the pan, requiring bits to be picked out.

        Entertainment: "Discovering Bruce Willis" on Sky Arts.

        "The Cold war & cinema" on Sky Arts which started with "The Third Man" and "Iron Curtain".

        Which was amusing enough.

        Which is more than I can say about "Episode VI: return of".

        Feck me it seemed interminable.

        I'm sure it didn't seem that long back in the day.

        Of the rest, I only possess "Episode III" since I couldn't bring myself to go to the cinema to watch that after the tedium beyond all measure of Episode I and Episode II.

        And I never bothered with VII, VIII, or IX or whatever due to lack of interest.

          Morning all

          Dull and overcast but dry for now. Currently 5 degrees ('feels like' 3) with a high of 9. Rain expected all day. Barometer at 1004 mBar.

          Much better night's sleep had. I feel almost human!

          Today's Kantar diary fact is:
          The Duchess of Sussex gives birth to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, weighing 7lbs 3oz 2019

          Ah...so they remember some birthdays!

              I have been having Crunchy Nut Cornflakes for breakfast so far this week as HWMBO buys milk, a foodstuff I tend to forget to purchase.

                How do you drink tea and even coffee - yes I know after working in Europe I play to the English stereotype and drink tea but even so.
                merely at clientco for the entertainment

                  I don't drink tea, and I take my coffee black

                    Very sensible - I do also.

                      Pâté on sesame bloomer toast for lunch

                      It's turning quite Simpsonesque out, but there's a chilly breeze to go with it

                      Managed to get a towel wash on earlier which should be done in an hour or so
