    Dinner was jacket potato with cheese and beans.

      I decided I didn't fancy the bowl of soup fir tea so I'm leaving it for lunch tomorrow. Instead, I had a roast beef cob. It's lovely beef, that; very tender

      Viewing so far has been a couple of repeats of The Repair Shop plus a thing about restorers fixing stuff up for the antiques bloke and other antiques people.

        Tonight's classic motion picture was Powell & Pressburger's A Matter of Life and Death (1946), one of the finest films ever made (P&P did a lot of them). Wonderful stuff, and thank God it hasn't (AFAIK) suffered the indignity of a remake, presumably because all filmmakers since have realised that they are simply not competent to remake perfection

        Goodnight all

          Some light cloud but mostly blue skies out. Even with the light rain overnight, yesterday’s bonfire is still smoking. Nothing else to go on it, so I’ll just let it go out.

            Indeed. I was rather upset to find that the two dvd collection of "Colonel Blimp" & the aforementioned included the Blimp (of which I now have the mandatory two copies) but not the dvd for "A Matter of Life & Death". Ho very hum. Had to watch it on the box with adverts instead.

            Morning.

            Dry.

            Sunny.

            Almost not chilly at 15.9 deg.

            Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the wan sunshine with grey gloom overhead verging on black across the valley by there, boyo, there's tidy then.

            Forecast rain for 11:30 turned up just as I was walking along the back lane.

            Very busy in the park this morning.

            One anticipates the return to something like normal tomorrow.

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

            Entertainment: bit of Y&Y until the usual phone problems led to the inevitable <click>.

            Freecell score: 100%, running average 84.4%.

            Freecell score: 100%, running average 93%.

            Tea: chicken in white sauce with peas n rice, the last of the fruit cocktail, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Entertaiment: some nonsense on 5* about cats doing dumb things.

            Farscape S1 E11 "Til the blood runs clear".

            Abandoned Engineering, which, these days, seems to have very little to do with engineering. Frankenstein's Castle? WTF?

              Morning all

              Sunny out but much wispy high level fluff. Currently 12 degrees with a high of 17 later. Barometer down to 1018 mBar.

              Patchy sleep, woke about 6am. Working again today.

                Sunny out but through a high haze of the kind which may well thicken as the day wears on. It seems a bit milder than yesterday too, at 12°C currently with a high of 14° expected. The barometers are down a bit again, at 1009/1017mB

                  The bed has been stripped and the covers laundered.

                  Hopefully I'll remember to make it before bedtime.

                    Lunch has been a Pukka Pies sausage roll because it was on its use by date, which is always an excellent excuse; followed by the bowl of herby chicken, tomato and lentil soup I had set aside, with both multiseed and wholemeal bread

                    The soup has turned out pretty well. I wasn't sure when I tried a spoonful while divvying it up, but after a couple of nights in the fridge the flavours have come together nicely

                      Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

                      It's only 15°C out but it's turned sunny now, so it's quite warm. Pleasant enough though
