    That's tedious. I have been ignoring the whole smart meter thing too but there's a suggestion that they won't work where I live because the meters for the whole block are located below ground.

        Funeral service was pretty nice

        There were a couple of younger retired RN types there to talk about his war service: Atlantic Star, Arctic Star, Africa Star, Pacific Star - he got around a bit

        And the chap officiating, from a chapel he used to attend, also happens to be the chaplain of Liverpool FC.

          strange both of my meters are old enough to drink in the US.

          First set in my first house were older than me.

          Oh look the lies suppliers will tell.

            Today has not been a doing day (too many meetings).

              Lunch, BTW, was pâté on toast

              The pâté was supposedly out of date as of yesterday, but I'm sure it'll be fine

              Looking on Ikea at a modular chest of drawers I was thinking of buying, I found that they had a delivery slot free tomorrow - normally it's at least a week and more often two or three before they can deliver, and indeed, the earliest next delivery date available was in a week or more. So I decided to strike while the iron was hot and placed the order

              And I also got around to phoning Specsavers for a hearing test, as I'm overdue one by nearly a year and my right hearing aid appears not to fit properly any more leading to regular feedback. They have a lot of Covid stuff in their reminder letters about how they'll first do a telephone consultation in the hope they can avoid having your diseased self anywhere near them (I'm paraphrasing), and there's never any slots available for online booking, so I was expecting it to be a while before I got in. But no: next Tuesday morning at 10:30

                  Prof. Brian Cox must have a pension shortfall. His new series is a clip show of his previous TV shows.

                    Walk moderately briskly walked, green ring closed

                    This evening was via the alternative route that features less uphill and is slightly shorter, as it comes back past the Co-op and I needed a loaf of bread

                      Wrap it in tinfoil.

                      Works a treat.
                      When the fun stops, STOP.
