    Nearly there. Need to decide whether to get the Tube or walk down to the hotel…


      20 minutes to clocking off time! I hope the electrician hurries up and finishes soon. He's currently worrying about the quality of dimmer switches


        Walked in the end; one of those typical London scenarios where I know the area I’m in and know the area I’m going to, so it’s easy enough to figure out how they join up

        I’d forgotten I splashed out on a Premier Plus room, which comes with a Nespresso machine. So now I need to Google the instructions for it


          I had originally booked a Premier Plus room. Then I changed the booking to add an extra person as HWMBO was going to come, and they downgraded me!

          I am finally on the tube and should get to the hotel shortly after 5pm.


            Got the Nespresso thing figured out, and there were a couple of little bits of chocolate too, so they’ve been guzzled with a coffee while watching a repeat of The Repair Shop


              Checking in!


                Fit to fly certificate back. I’ll be up in London Town tomorrow. Have a good evening

                  Well, we’re been all over the shop tonight - Smithfield, Moorgate, even up by the Gherkin. I’m thoroughly confused

                  A good night had by all though, I think

                  Goodnight all


                    Wish I could have joined you.
                    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!









                      Warmer at 13.6 deg in here.

                      1014 mBar, 29.94 in Hg, 760.56 Torr, 60% RH.


                      Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey, dark, dank, dreary drizzle.

                      Innerestingly enough, an empty packet of sildenafil was discarded up by the res.

                      Lunch: that soup & rice thing, a yog, a bramble jelly sandwich, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      Entertainment: Dead Ringers.

                      More aliens bollox on Blaze, more than I could stand.

                      Freecell score: 88%, running average 84%.

                      Thing about Pink Floyd DSOTM (again) on Sky Arts.

                      PF live in Venice (part of).

                      Tea: spag with that fiery bol from last week (rather better than the chilli of the same vintage), some peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      Scotland Yard: another dose of the Wolseley 6/90 (this ep from 1961), a case of "wot's this ear" with a leg instead, fished (literally) out of a canal.

                      Turns out butchers have skillz.

                      Wilfrid Brambell (old man steptoe) as a posh pathologist.

                      Fred Dibnah on mining.

                      Wartime Farm Xmas (mostly coz I can't find anything else).

                      Brit Cops:Frontline Crime: Wales, look you, there's tidy then, boyo, Dyfed Powys, who'd have thunk it's all kicking off.

                      Goodness me, some of this lot are remarkably brain dead.

                      Followed by Quantum Leap: the photographer one, which was meh or I wasn't in the mood for it and:

                      Trucking Hell S5 E2: wherein the Lantern boys go to the gym with a vengeance. No Rory.
