    Morning all

    Dry and overcast, windy. Currently 6 degrees ('feels like' 2) and that's the high for the day. Rain forecast, potential for a bit of sleet early evening. Barometer at 997 mBar.

    After much sleep, I am feeling alive again. A friend messaged me to see if I was free for lunch so we're off for a mooch around Borough Market. Then I need to log on and do the work I didn't do yesterday.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is... a BOGOF! My diary started on this day in 2020 so from now until the end of the year, you get two facts!

      Mooch mooched. Rained a bit. Damp and grim outside but I'm glad I did make it outdoors today rather than festering inside all weekend.

        Storm Thingumajig seems to have passed on its way, so it's mostly just grey and unwindy out there at the moment; the weather app speaks of "snow showers", but such exotica rarely penetrate to the depths of the city. They're probably over in Rutland or somewhere. Temperature has only managed 3°C, and the barometers are slightly up at 994/1001mB

        They should expand their lexicon of storm names to include non-human categories, just to keep things interesting. Have a season of naming them after medical appliances first patented in the 1870s, then one with the Latin names of mutant fungi only found in post-industrial wastelands, and so on

          That's a sterling idea. Tweet it to the Met office!

            Got much windier here. Had to put the chain on lid of bin storage to stop it blowing up and bashing on the wall.

            Finally managed to transfer photos to PC from new mobile phone, had to get a new USB cable. 20 quid for a cable! Gordon Bennet!

              I realised the other day that I still had some sausage rolls in the freezer, so I had a couple of them for lunch

                  The wind seems to have died down a bit but there's still a risk of sleet this evening.

                  Trying to work but an SQL query has taken nearly an hour so far and I'm bored.

                    Oh no, just found receipt and it was 12 quid! Senile! (As usual)
