    Yer right! If I get drunk tonight it's your fault!



      Chicken, tomato and lentil soup is underway in the InstantPot™. This one's going to be the sort with herbs rather than zingy


        I went for a walk along to Tesco earlier today to buy some flowers as I haven't had any in the flat for a while.

        The rest of the day has been spent doing exceptionally little.

        The parentals phoned and I made arrangements with my Mum to visit them later this month on Mothering Sunday. I then emailed my Dad to tell him this and he confirmed that she forgot to mention it.

        I have just realised that, during the aforementioned call, the WM bleated to announce completion of its duties and my duvet cover has been festering in the WM since about 3pm this afternoon. This has lead to the further realisation that the bed needs to be made.

          The soup turned out nice again


            Birthday party done, including some very fine rum. Now TFBSZ
            …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


              Soup divvied up: a bowl for lunch tomorrow, and five to go in the freezer

              Tonight's viewing was Trucking Hell, which included a couple of newer people at Crouch but no Rory

              And then the Air Crash Investigation into UPS Airlines Flight 6, brought down by lithium batteries

              Better get to sleep now, given that I'm supposed to be working tomorrow

              Goodnight all


                Morning all
                Dry, but a bit overcast, not looking like rain.

                Now, I don't mean to be a boastful contractor, but we've just had a delivery of oil, the tank is full.

                  Cold in here at 11.4 deg.

                  1024 mBar, 30.24 in Hg, 768.1 Torr, 14.85 psi, (down from 1029 mBar last night), 68% RH.


                  Telex machine gleaming pretty brightly this morning.

                  Walk (unabbreviated) walked during which the buildup and accumulation of detritus was noted: nearly time for another binbag adventure.

                  Lunch: scrambled egg (with an unexpectly large sprinkling of black pepper due to inattention by the cook) and poached tomato on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Entertainment: my voices since anything else is beyond endurance.

                  Freecell score (other box):88%, running average 84%.

                  Tea: chicken in white sauce with rice n peas, peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Entertainment: Discovering Gene Wilder.

                  Quantum Leap S5 E15 "Blood Moon": the vampire one.

                  Oak Island nutjobbery S8 E24 "Silver lining" the one where they find traces of silver down a borehole. The excitement is palpable. Not.

                  Tedious beyond endurance.

                  NCIS S18 E10 "Watchdog": wtf has a dog fighting ring got to do with NCIS? Just askin' like. Oh. it's a federal crime. Well there's a thing.

                  I don't think I've ever seen so many * and ** reviews on this ep.

                  Bab5 "The Lost Tales" is distinctly odd, not what one might expect at all, in fact they should have stayed lost.

                  "NASA Secret Files" on Blaze: the usual UFO bollox but on another channel, Blaze being obsessed at the time with Ancient X Files instead.

                    No news is good news.

                    Ain't that a fact.
