      I have spent the day playing Professor Layton and the Curious Village. A game I played yonks ago when i used to have a Nintendo DS and always wished it would be ported to the mobile as the style of play was eminently suitable for the mobile. Turns out that did happen, a long time ago. As paid-for games go £9.99 is a bit steep but other than a totally non-intuitive means of activating the keyboard, the port is excellent and it proved a fine way to waste a sunny day.

      Much fun had.

      For background noise, ents has been season 9 of The Curse of Oak Island. I've been dipping in and out of it since the new series started and they've found naff all as of episode 14.


        I suppose I ought to make the bed if I am to get to sleep at a reasonable hour this evening.

          I think, autocorrect, that you'll find the bread has multiple seeds and only one user, so I was correct the first time

          Telly tonight was mainly just stuff from during the week being repeated on Quest, but that did include an episode of The Repair Shop featuring the most preposterously huge teddy bear ever seen

          And then I watched a couple more of the shortened versions queued up on iPlayer

          Goodnight all

            Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the wan sunshine.

            Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toasted crust, bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches, a red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Entertainment: mowing 6 lawns. Feck me, the idle bastard's lawn took some mowing, dunno what seed I used on that one but by feck it grows fast and long.

            Tea: the last of the chicken with carrots and onions, some pear halves, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Entertainment: Discovering Bill Murray.

            Car SOS S7 E3: Triumph TR4.

            Oak Island nutjobbery: drilling down Enough of that crap. Drilling down is even more tedious (difficult to imagine though it is) than the offerings of S8.

            NCIS S18 E12 "Sangre". Mildly amusing.

            When the fun stops, STOP.


              Morning all

              Another blue sky with bits of fluff day. Currently 8 degrees with a scorching high of 16 later. Barometer steady at 1027 mBar.

              Much racket going on outside. Scaffolding being put up in preparation for my building to undergo a variety of exterior repairs and redecoration over the next two months.

                The cloud is burning off and it's turning into another nice day.

                  Quick walk around the corner to the post box. Lovely out there.

                  Lunch is a fresh baked roll with cheese and ham.


                    Darn it, loony lady 2 has the C thing and I was with her on Friday. Will have to miss me Karaoke tomorrow as need to wait 5 days before test apparently.

                      Just realised I didn't actually hit the "Post" button on this earlier

                      Morning denizens

                      Sunny day out, but a chilly start: currently 5°C, with 14° expected later. Barometers slightly up at 1020/1028mB

                      …and while I'm here: lunch has been chicken, tomato and lentil soup with multiseed bread (which autocorrect didn't try to fix this time…)
