    Morning all
    Blue skies and sunny, although there was mist in the valley overnight.

    Pleasant day, while I work out what to do with an old client laptop I have found. Client no longer exists (bought over, asset stripped, sold on). IT department no longer exists (outsourced). Most of the senior staff I knew got early retirement.

    Problem is the laptop is running carbon black.

      Morning all

      Blue sky with bits of fluff again. Currently 13 degrees with a high of 15 forecast. Looks like it'll get a bit cloudier as the day progresses with a reasonable chance of rain overnight. Barometer steady at 1023 mBar.

      HWMBO trundled the bins last night as the cocktails floored me and I had to have a mid-evening nap on the sofa. Fortunately not sore-headed this morning.

        Lunch has been a couple of freshly baked sausage rolls

        Been a while since I've made those

            Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

            Rather mild out there this evening

              In the end, I wiped the drive, re-installed W10 and am now rebuilding the machine.

                Southern not-fried chicken and fries, with lashings of ketchup, for tea

                    Wot no Linux?

                    TV in the early evening was more of the same: the car people with a BMW 2002tii (one of those boxy-looking ones from the 1970s), then the gold miners, then the antiques chap, who went to various European places for a change. Teatime viewing was a bit more of that warship programme, which I must admit I'd forgotten I was watching. And finally, another episode of that NatGeo show about hurricanes and other storms filmed by people out on boats and rigs and things while they're happening

                      Morning all

                      Murky and overcast on our walk earlier, and now it's raining.
