    Shirts out of WM1 and into TD.

    Cottons into WM1.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the sunshine. Managed to avoid the talkative chap, much to my delight.

    Shirts out of TD and roughly iRoned.

    Smalls back into TD for 2nd pass (the socks don't dry well being padded).

    Mother****ing washing line breaks.

    You couldn't make this tulip up.

    Sheets out of WM2 and into TD. So fecking much for saving electricity.

    Shopping trip to Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised, & put away & guess wot? There seems to be a world shortage (in Neath) of suitable washing line: none in Wilko & some inferior crap in Morrisons.

    The sheets are still in the TD, though the random number generator seems to reckon they should be out by now.

    When the fun stops, STOP.


      Morning all

      Blue sky. Chilly at 2 degrees, with a high of 8 later. Barometer up to 1032 mBar.

      An idiot "sharepoint expert" deleted a page of FAQs I'd written for end users and won't restore it - I have to do it for him. However, I have just noticed my miniature daffodils have started flowering, as have my hyacinths, so I'm not going to let someone else's incompetence drag me down.

          Morning denizens

          Up betimes, for it is bin day and I suspect the recycling people are getting here earlier again. Sure enough, those bins had been done by just after half eight; so one was captured and trundled back in

          And then I continued onwards, so: walk briskly walked, green ring closed

          I didn't add the extra leg today, but felt vaguely like I was skipping part of the walk. So the idea of going a bit further seems to be starting to develop into a habit, or maybe just something else to feel guilty about

          It was a fairly cold start at 2°C but sunny too, so it's already up to 4°. No more than 7° forecast for the rest of the day though. Barometers have leapt up to 1024/1032mB


            Coco Shreddies had for late breakfast / mid morning snack.

            I've inhaled three cups of coffee this morning so need to switch to water, I guess.


              Contemplating whether to put a wash on or do it tomorrow.


                Realised I've been getting very short tempered and grumpy at work. Probably a combination of too much needing to be done in too little time and having been at the client for far too long and so being utterly disillusioned by everything they do.


                  But, on a positive note, I'm off to meet a friend for dinner this evening over Hampton Court way.


                    Thinking of chores, I also need to get myself booked in at the hairdresser - those greys don't cover themselves up!


                      And a 'chury. Finally remembered to pay attention to the post count
