    Pretty hectic morning as the gaffer had to give a demo of stuff, including the QuickSight things, to the DHSC at 1300 hours. All sorted out just in time, after which lunch was Scotch broth with multiseed bread

    It's brightened up a lot out there, though there's still a fairly stiff breeze blowing

    I poked my head out of the alley at the other end of the terrace, and it looks like the petrol station is free of queues at the moment; though it could be that the queue last night took everything, I suppose

            Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

            Not too warm out - officially 15°C, but there's a rather fresh breeze

              Cheerful viewing this evening courtesy of Storyville - Poisoning America: The Devil we Know

              All about Dupont's Teflon product which had a component, PFOA, that was so dangerous that birds flying through the exhaust coming out of their factory chimneys fell out of the sky, dead. Children born with genetic defects because their mother's worked in the factories, cattle dying on farms contaminated with water run off from the factories. All the usual signs of danger that they ignored for many years until someone had the audacity to sue.

              They struggled to find clean blood samples because their products had gone global and 'C8' was present at some level or other due to people cooking with Teflon coated frying pans, environmental run off, food contamination, etc etc.

                Tea: battered chunky haddock with chips and beans

                Accompanied by a new episode of Ambulance - S7E6, iPlayer helpfully informs me. They must have had a week or two off or something, as I'm sure there wasn't one last week; can't remember if there was one the week before

                  Dinner was Thai takeaway with extra ordered to keep me fed tomorrow too.

                  Bins trundled.

                  Discovered there's a new series of The Repair Shop srarting on Wednesday.

                    After Ambulance I started watching this. Exactly the levels of concern for the wellbeing of the wider public that you'd expect from corporate USA

                      Morning denizens

                      It seems ominously as if it'll be a sunny start once the sun gets over the properties facing, but in theory it should cloud over at about the same time and then rain this afternoon. We shall see…

                      Currently 11°C with a high of 16° forecast, so proper autumn seems to be setting in now. Barometers up sharply though at 1008/1016mB, so maybe we're in for an Indian summer; though the forecast predicts otherwise
