      Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
      Inertia, however........................

        Don't forget the curlers and face mask!

        Track & Trace (not Test & Trace as I erroneously referred to them as earlier) have now phoned me to get me to confirm I will quarantine and do all the tests.

          Afternoon denizens

          Grey day out, mild enough at 20°C though not expected to get any higher than that, barometers marginally down at 1006/104mB; rain expected tonight

          TV reception is very poor at the moment, causing Monkey Life to break up a fair bit

            After a bit of archaeological excavation I eventually dug up a signal booster I bought years ago. As I recall it did no good at all on the old analogue stuff, so it was consigned to the assorted junk department. Having found it, then found a spare aerial lead I bought from either Maplin or Wilkos, also years ago, and then found somewhere to plug it in: perfect signal!

            I don't suppose it'll let me get any of the missing channels as they're probably blocked by the aerial, but once Monkey Life is over for the week, I'll see if any of the other channels that never work properly have improved

              Lots of other channels are now watchable

              Only in the sense of being displayed properly though. There's nothing on any of them worth watching

                  Having made HWMBO watch a week's worth of TdF, he's now having to suffer The Curse of Oak Island. It's S4E15, the finale episode of the season and the opening titles imply they find something by practically destroying it.

                  He's wisely fortifying himself with a gin and tonic.

                    We had some friends around this afternoon. He's English, she's Swiss - been here for years. Anyway, we had afternoon tea. I made a faux clotted cream (you can't get clotted cream here), made from whipped double cream, a little icing sugar and mascarpone to go with the scones - choice of apricot or raspberry jam. Wifey made the scones, proper cucumber sandwiches, egg and cress sandwiches, and salmon with cream cheese sandwiches. Even cut the crusts off.

                    Darjeeling tea.

                    Sitting in the garden. A little corner of England. But better weather. The Swissy yummed up the scones and sandwiches.

                    Past week a bit of a blur. Lots of hospitality + working intensively. So tired... tomorrow I'm taking a day off. Planting shrubs, taking a parcel to Germany to post to UAE (friends left some clothes behind), finding a climbing rose.
