    I had a glance at the 10 day forecast on my weather app and it's possible that we could be seeing temperatures in the mid-20's for early next week.


      Tea has been pork chops, cooked in the Remoska, with chips, peas and gravy. Absolutely delicious

        Same here. Rain tomorrow though, so no need to look on the bright side just yet


          Rubbish trundled. Recycling can wait until Tuesday's collection.


            An interview with god was good, not converted to a believer, but it tried to explain some of God's mysteries. But strangely God only mentions the Christians & Jews. other religious sects are screwed apparently.

            Nine perfect strangers episode was good.

            Off up north tomorrow to deliver Miss V1 to UNI.

            And in 3 weeks to the Midlands for miss v2.

            Its going to be quiet.

            I want to see the hand of history on his collar.


              More seasonal viewing on iPlayer tonight: Surviving 9/11, about people's experiences on the day and since. Another very interesting, if obviously very sombre, programme

              To sleep now, in hopes of an early walk tomorrow assuming the weather holds off; and certainly an early inbound trundle

              Goodnight all


                Morning denizens

                Another grey start, though back to 14°C

                Rain seems to have been cancelled, and a high of 18° later. Barometers down at 1016/1024mB


                  Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

                  And the recycling bins had been done by the time I set off, so that's been trundled back in


                    Morning all

                    Dry and quite bright despite the near-total cloud cover. There was a bit of blue valiantly trying to get through. Currently 16 degrees and the high is expected to reach 21 with more sunshine. Barometer down to 1023 mBar.

                    Bed stripped and first load (under sheet and pillow cases) doing its thing.

                    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
                    'eBay' is founded in the San Jose living room of Pierre Omidyar 1995

                    Alternative fact (from the Torygraph):
                    Declaration of war by Britain and France on Germany 1939






                      Chilly in here at 19 deg C.

                      1020 mBar, 30.12 in Hg, 71% RH.


                      Smalls in the WM.

                      Afternoon entertainment: "Ride the high country (1962)" with that Randolph Scott (his final film) and that Joel McCrea (not his final film).

                      Plus Mariette Hartley, who is still working, despite being abandoned by Mr Spock some 5000 years in the past. (STOS: "All our yesterdays (1969)")

                      Walk walked, didn't seem quite as chilly as yesterday.

                      Smalls out of the WM & into the TD.

                      Shirts in the WM.

                      Smalls out of the TD & airing in front bedroom.

                      Shirts out of the WM and into the TD.

                      Cottons in the WM.

                      Shirts out of the TD & roughly iRoned.

                      *this shedload being 12.2kg.

                      $500 fine. Odd. I'd have thought it would be more.

                      Some Japanese crew on a ship are catching undersize snapper.

                      Canadian Customs thing: French woman with a Canadian homeless boyfriend refused entry.

                      She's not best pleased.

                      Gosh. The paedophile who'd jumped bail & spent 5 years in the Philipines got himself denied entry & escorted in cuffs to the border to meet the Septic plods.

                      "Ride the High Country" watched again.

                      Vacced the floors in a futile attempt to pretend to have done sommat constructive with the day.
