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

          And very nice too; the soup in particular had a nice peppery kick to it


            Two - two! - premieres tonight! First up was Macbeth (2015) which is so good that it's almost entirely made of quotations that you already know and either forgot or didn't realise came from there. That Shakespeare was pretty good at writing films for a man that lived four hundred years before they were invented

            And then… well, it was Æon Flux (2005) which is a bit crap really, but there you go

            And then some repeats.

            Goodnight all






              Cold at 15.4 deg in here.

              1019 mBar, 30.09 in Hg, 764.3 Torr, 69% RH.


              Strewth it's a bit sunny out there & a bit cold with it.

              Sunday shopping trip to Tesco & Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised, & put away, including the 2 litres of Southern Comfort at a very reasonable £36.

              Lunch: roast chicken breast with lincoln sausage, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              The sausage was nice, the rest of it was pretty much meh.

              Time for a walk in the sunshine.

              Walk (unabbreviated) walked in said sunshine.

              Quite chilly out there & there's a lazyish wind.

              Tea: Heinz tomato soup with a hint of chilli plus some Morrisons wholemeal sunflower & spelt bread that proved to be remarkably blue in parts , bramble jelly sandwich on the fresh version of same, some peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              Entertainment: E4 of the current S of Doctor Who: I rather enjoyed this one without understanding much at all.

              Thing about that London, all 2000 years of it.

              Freddy Mercury in his own words on 5.

              When the fun stops, STOP.


                Morning all

                Blue sky and dry. Chilly at 7 degrees ('feels like' 4) with a high of 8 expected. Sun due to stay out all day. Barometer at 1019 mBar.

                HWMBO is heading home at lunchtime and didn't fill my freezer due to the vast amount of eating out we did.

                Today's Kantar diary fact is:
                Emilio Onra becomes the first human cannonball 1871


                  The Taste festival was good yesterday. It was nice going for the lunchtime / early afternoon session for a change as it can be a bit full of drunken idiots in the evenings.

                  We bought nice eatables such as chocolate, Dorset made charcuterie, coffee liqueur, cherry vodka, doughnuts.


                    One reason why there was not a plethora of left overs was because HWMBO had ordered a cook at home box from Home-X which did us for two meals over two nights. Very simple to put together and generous portions.

                    I'm hoping some restaurants do kits again for New Year as there were some cracking ones last year. However, I suppose they'll want punters in the restaurant rather than going through the faff of prepping and boxing stuff up.


                      Oh, and an om
