    Morning all
    Blowing a hooley and tipping it down here. The DogTW will have to with to go out for a walk. For now she's just had a run round the garden.

      Good morning all

      Another day closer to the heat-death of the Universe and all is sunny in Salford.

      Electrician popping round to fit some extra sockets in junior's bedroom before it's redecorated.

      Taking wifey out for dinner this evening. Taking junior to the firing range tomorrow morning, possibly via the gunshop as I feel like treating myself...

      Have a good weekend all!

        Morning denizens

        Up very betimes, so: walk briskly walked, green ring closed

        This revealed that the refuse disposal operatives are back in early riser mode, as the recycling bins had already been done when I set out at 7:30am. So that's been trundled back in

        It's a sunny morning out there at the moment, around 8°C when I went out, currently 9°, and 11° expected later; but also cloud, and probable (70-90%) showers this afternoon. Barometers are sharply down at 995/1003mB


          Oh, and: coffee and a nectarine for breakfast


            Morning all

            Overcast but dry. Currently 11 degrees ('feels like' 9) with a high of 12. Rain forecast from mid-morning onwards. Barometer down to 1006 mBar.

            Tired today. Getting out of bed was a struggle.

              I see from the weather prognosticating engine that there's rain, hail, wind, and murrain of beasts forecast for tomorrow.

              Well it is a Saturday after all.

              I was tempted to apply for a job yesterday, but the feeling seems to have passed.

              Tea: Tesco hatterd baddock, the last of the fruit cocktail, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              Thankfully it was a pilot that never made it to a series.

              The one & only good thing was Andreas Katsulas as G'Kar: he never gave a bad performance.

              When the fun stops, STOP.


                I'm going to pop down the shops to beat the lunchtime rush, and also the weather that I see on the radar closing in from the south


                  Just back from an early walk to miss the rain.

                    Shopping all done and dusted

                    I went to M&S first, then over to Sainsbury's. Mask-wearing seems to be diminishing in both

                    Lunch has been roast chicken bits from the Sainsbury's hot food counter; very tasty

                    Suppose I'd better get back to work now


                      Oh, and the bad weather hasn't arrived yet; judging by the radar it has a tendency to fizzle out before getting this far north and east, but it'll probably rain a bit after two or so
