    That's a bit complicated unless you don't have to actually put the bins out cos you have nice refuse engineers who will collect from an accessible bin storage location.

    Down in West Sussex, my Mum is livid with the district council because the garden waste is not being collected due to a lack of staff. Apparently, despite it costing an extra £150 a year, the bins are not collected fortnightly as advertised but on a 'best endeavours' basis with no refunds.
    £150 a year for garden waste? It was £55 in Surrey and £50 here!

      My Mum must have signed up for a different period as, according to this, it's £72.60 a year.

      The site you register on doesn't have any pricing on it. You have to sign up first (which is not possible because they can't cope with the customers they've got).

        Don't think there's a charge for garden waste around here.

        That's why I burn it all and the bits that don't burn meet the compost heap.

        By the end of the summer the compost heap is knocking on for 5 feet tall.

          I have been thinking, for nearly two weeks now, that I ought to do some laundry.

          Having run out of other procrastination tasks (cleaning, tidying etc) I have gotten a round tuit. Smalls and tops now in the WM.

          I think it's time to take a break for lunch.

              Gosh, that time already? Soon be the weekend!

              Lunch was sardine toasties (olive oil ones, not tomato sauce). Very nice

              Workwise, the other brouhaha of the week is that it's possible all the work we've done for the last couple of weeks has been for naught. We're knocking up visualisations of that data my thing shuttles across from the other app. But now it's unclear whether some of the target audience will be able to get access to the visualisations app; so it's possible we'll have to do it using Amazon QuickSight instead, which they already use widely and which provides the necessary access.

              Just before lunch I took my SQL query for the one chart I've done so far, pasted it into QuickSight, adjusted the colours, and posted a screenshot to Teams. After lunch, I've worked out another SQL query for another chart (moderately complicated as it needs to aggregate data over a SQL-generated time series), made a QuickSight chart of that, and posted a screenshot.

              Meanwhile, the other chap is casting around for some way to get his Python code to work over there. There isn't one; they've got it locked down to only use SQL

                Smalls out the WM and dresses now in, with the hurry up button pressed (which I forgot to do on the last load).

                The trouble with a rental is that you end up with naff white goods that don't have a quick wash function for things that just need freshening up. The quickest cycle on mine still takes an hour.

                  When I have to, I can use it and read it. But I'll never like it.

                    Work intensively with it for two or three years and you don't even notice the XML any more
