    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    Quite mild out; about 16°C. There's a bit of a breeze but it's southerly and not very chilly

      Decided on the spur of the moment earlier this afternoon that I should pick up dinner from Cafe Bao at KX. A trip on the Piccadilly line led me to believe there is a match this evening at the Arsenal.

        Really nice tea of chicken in red wine sauce, with chips and peas

        I was a bit surprised to see on the label that it dated from 19 May, as I'm sure I've made it again since then. I think I must have had those and not realised there was still this older one tucked away at the back

          I noticed on Twitter earlier that they're doing that kind of thing up here tomorrow evening, with visitors from Brighton. Good to know that I should avoid bothering to go out anywhere during the arriving and leaving periods

              Followed by another, and then the second part of the latest series of A House Through Time

              Going to be quite windy tomorrow apparently, though which direction it'll come from remains to be seen

              Goodnight all

                  Morning denizens

                  Another quite decent night's sleep, punctuated by occasional dreams of such mundane incidents that I can't remember any of them

                  Seems to be a grey start out again after a mild night; currently 15°C with 17° expected, and the wind seems to be picking up already

                      Morning all

                      It was a bit dark and dim when I got up although technically the sun was ris. Overcast but dry. Currently a balmy 15 degrees with a high of 17 later and chance of a bit of sunshine. A light breeze from the southwest is expected. Barometer steady at 1020 mBar.

                      Tired this morning, bumbled about instead of efficiently getting ready for the day.

                      Today's Kantar diary fact is:
                      Inventor and film pioneer Fred Waller received US patent for water skis 1925
