    I'm a saddo
    Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.


      Telly has been the aforementioned episode of Ambulance

      And then some more of the Paddington nonsense

      Goodnight all


        Morning denizens

        This morning's cloud looked patchy just before but has somehow metamorphosed into proper grey overcast now

        Currently 14°C which seems to have become standard for this time of day, a possible 19° later, and no rain forecast; though that doesn't mean there won't be any, as weather volatility seems to be testing the limits of existing models this summer. Barometers very slightly down at 1009/1017mB


          Morning all

          16.4 °C

          The system says no accumulation of precipitation, but there's moisture in the air and on the ground

            How gratifying, the goto last post thing has returned to its previously totally & utterly fecked state after last evening's brief change.

            Walk walked (different route) in the endless drizzle.

            Morrisons delivery van noted failing to stop after damaging a parked car.

            I shopped him to the owner of said vehicle.

            Lunch: Poached tomato and scrambled egg on thick toasted crust of Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Entertainment: Car SOS: R reg Lotus Esprit.

            More clearing out of papers done, another bag half filled.

            Found my very very very late brother's nhs registration card and some condolence letters to my not so late parents.

            Entertainment: bits of Trucking Hell S4 E3. No rory.

            Tea: soup, rice, stewed apple & custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea, a yog.

            Entertainment: Discovering Harrison Ford.

            NCIS S15 E23.

            NCIS S16 E1.

            Oddly they didn't show S15 E24 which was the set up for S16 E1.

              Out doing proper social stuff on Friday night. Have now got painful broken collarbone (and attractive but not painful black eye) to show for my efforts.

              Sympathy welcome!

              HWMBO mentioned you were broken, ouch!


                Morning all

                Dull, overcast, no current precipitation but signs of wet on the patio tiles/plants inferring there has been some overnight. Currently 17 degrees with a high of 21 expected and, potentially, some sunshine will appear. Barometer down to 1018 mBar.

                I slept but am not rested. Awoke before the alarm (I refused to look at the time) and then slept through my alarm

                Today's Kantar diary fact is:
                The trial of the Pendle witches begins in Lancashire, England 1612


                  When does trial of you CUK witches start?

                  If everything isn't black and white, I say, 'Why the hell not?'
