      Went to the beach for a very pleasant walk earlier, now trying to decide between gardening, making tartare sauce or putting my feet up.

        It is rather

        It rained a bit here but seems to have cleared up now. Nice blue sky with the odd wisp of cloud, but I think it's going to be a very chilly night as a result

            It was like that here for a lot of yesterday. And at one point when I was walking back from the chemist in the afternoon, I was in bright sunshine and it started snowing

              Tea has been lamb cutlets with chips and beans. Very tasty

              Accompanied by an episode of The Repair Shop starring a very fine ape called Jacko

              Though they did keep referring to him as a monkey

                    Yes, sorry, I forgot to mention that early evening viewing

                    Seems like quite a decent car actually, and I'm not surprised the bloke who sold it to them bought it back for seven grand, given that they don't seem to add labour into their supposed costs for fixing it; assuming no TV trickery, he got an absolute bargain on the restoration there

                      Tonight's first motion picture premiere has been Broadcast Signal Intrusion (2021) in which a video archivist becomes obsessed with a sequence of such intrusions from the 1980s and seeks to track down the source. It's American but reminiscent of Japanese films like Ringu in many ways. I thought it was pretty good, though I'm not sure it has mass market appeal. But then again, what do I know about mass markets, or appeal come to that? And I am of course au fait with the actual broadcast signal intrusions of that time on which the ones in the film are based, so I had a heads up, as it were. It's just one of those films that you'll like if you like it and might not if you don't

                      And then a major motion picture premiere ("major" because it stars some bloke who was in a couple of episodes of Friends): Ad Astra (2019). I believe this one didn't do as well as it might have done in the global markets, but I rather liked it. I assume it didn't do well because people expected a space film with Brad Pitt to be a bit whizz-bang or whatever; maybe something like Passengers or Interstellar or Life or The Martian? But it isn't; it's quite sombre, and contemplative, and none the worse for that I reckoned. Worth watching, but don't expect to jump out of your seat at any point
