      Took a fair-sized bag of recycling down and, as that filled the bin to capacity, trundled it a day early. If the City Wardens don't like it, well, there's already a bunch of other bins that have been left out there since last week and they have house numbers on, so they'll go for the easy kill

      I could do with taking another, smaller bag down, but I'll wait until others have trundled and see if I can get it in one of theirs.

        Round our way if you put your rubbish out on the wrong day you will occasionally get a big 'WRONG DAY!' sticker put on it, which does nothing of course.

        I did complain about a block a couple of doors up whose residents regularly dumped their rubbish on the street instead of their communal bins. I took photos and sent them into the council. I'm guessing they did something as they stopped doing it after a while.

          Yes, I sometimes see the City Wardens clucking over bins; I even know a couple of them slightly as they've been to the Neighbourhood Watch meetings. But they seem to have given up on bins from our main road terrace being left on the side road, perhaps because the bin men are supposed to come up the back lane and get them, and the only reason there's any bins out there is that they don't, which is really the council's problem

            Tea has been chicken casserole with chips and peas, and very tasty it was too

            Accompanied by an episode of Air Crash Investigation, about the DC-10's unfortunate tendency to suddenly shed its cargo doors at altitude

              For want of any repair-based programmes, further viewing was some more air crash stuff, this time about the famous Gimli Glider. I've seen a programme about that before, but I'm not sure if I'd seen this one; anyway, it's a good story so worth watching again

              And then some American customs and border stuff, which is no different to the ones repeated endlessly on Pick except it was in HD and wasn't about ten years old. Same old crap though

              Goodnight all

                Morning all

                Blue sky, dry. Currently 2 degrees ('feels like' -2) with a high of 5 later. Rain expected overnight. Barometer up to 1010 mBar.

                Heartily disappointed that it's Thursday, not Friday.

                  Thursday by all accounts.

                  Went arse over tit on the garden path whilst taking stuff down to the compost heap, just to really really make my fecking day.

                  Walk (unabbreviated & unextended) walked in the sunshine.

                  More putting resistors into little drawers bought from B&Q this afternoon.

                  The excitement was palpable. Especially since I can't read these blue bodied 1% resistors easily (or at all without a magnifier and a tungsten lamp).

                  Overalls out of the TD and airing on the newel post.

                  Tea: the last portion of fiery chilli con carne out of the freezer with rice, some pear halves (they're not so nice now most of the sugar is taken out), a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                    Morning denizens

                    Sunny, frosty start: currently 2°C, up from 1° not thirty minutes ago, with no better than 4° expected. And there's a 70-80% chance of rain, sleet, and even snow tonight, so I may run errands today. On the other hand, it's also predicted to be 5° and climbing by tomorrow's sunrise at 7:56, so maybe there's no need to rush. Barometers are up at 1004/1012mB
