    Morning denizens

    Fairly overcast, but thinly; I reckon the gaps will widen and the sun break through shortly (though the forecast doesn't so reckon)

    Currently 12°C with 13° likely to be as good as it gets. Barometers slightly up again at 1022/1030mB.

    Quite a decent night's sleep, all in all

      A better night's sleep, which was good.

      Still completely knackered.

      Morning.

      Dark.

      Grey.

      Sunless.

      Dank.

      Damp.

      Drizzly.

      15.8 deg in here.

      1029 mBar, 30.39 in Hg, 771.8 Torr, 70% RH.

      The washing frenzy commence with the smalls in the WM.

      Smalls out of the WM and into the TD.

      Shirts in the WM.

      Smalls out of the TD and airing in the front bedroom.

      Shirts out of the WM & into the TD.

      Cottons in the WM.

      Shirts out of the TD.

      Sun came out, drizzle stopped for a while: walk (slightly abbreviated) walked.

      Cottons out of the WM and into the TD.

      Jeans into the WM.

      Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

      Entertainment: Oz customs thing: Septic chap with zero funds: sent back to septic land.

      Cottons out of the TD.

      Jeans out of the WM & into the TD.

      Shirts roughly iRoned and airing in the back bedroom.

      Tea: a rather disappointing Tesco chunky breaded haddock, the last of the tinned pears, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

      Entertainment: Discovering Tony Curtis.

      Quantum Leap: the one in some septic university.

      Pink Floyd: the videos on Sky Arts.

      Irish Railways.

      The last of Dalgliesh: it was actually rather reasonable.

      1974: the UK number ones: I bet Gary's in there somewhere, he certainly was in 1973.

      As it were.

      Aye, Gary's in there at Number 27.

      Maybe the ice bodies thing on Blaze if I can bring myself to tolerate the gambling ads.

        Inbound trundle accomplished

        Off to do the shopping next. Not that I need much, but the wheels of capitalism won't turn themselves!

          Austria's national lockdown has put a spanner in the works for our trip to Vienna next weekend. HWMBO is trying to salvage something by hoping that Strasbourg is a viable alternative.

            Strasbourg is great at Christmas. It's not Brugges, but then Brugges is a F@**ing Fairytale.

              Shopping done. I went to M&S first, as I had a Sparks offer of 15% off clothing; so I got various t-shirts, a pair of chinos, and more thick woolly socks, all of which bring the imminent recycling of various very old items of clothing that are finally wearing out that much closer

              Then over to Sainsbury's, where most of what I got (apart from beer and crisps) was reserve stocks of non-perishables, and things like sauces that I have a tendency to use the last of only to find I haven't remembered to get a replacement

              Oh, and the Xmas Viz Comic

              And lunch was from the hot-now-but-wait-till-you-get-it-home food counter: a seasoned chicken leg, which was nice enough

              The day continues grey after all, so the weather app was right and I was wrong

                Sadly I am now not going on the Christmas market trip as the date has changed, due to reasons, to 10 December and I'm busy that evening.

                  Ah! That will brighten up my own boring trip to Sainsburys later.

                  PS Viz not as good as it was. That boring Drunken Bakers nearly every month.

                    That's one of my favourites, but each to their own

                      Walk briskly walked, green and red rings closed

                      In fact, the green ring was closed before I was even halfway round, as for some reason it gave me loads of exercise credit for this morning's shopping and bin-related activity. Maybe it was due to standing in the queue for the tills in M&S; they now have almost no places you can pay except a row of tills behind plexiglas screens, hidden away behind the bras. They do have self-scan tills but only in the food department, and the self-scan phone app needs a signal, and there is no signal inside the store
