    Finally got me footpath inspection stuff from the council. Lots of wandering about wobbling signposts over next few weeks. Exciting!

      Afternoon denizens

      It's looking Simpsonesque out, though still a bit breezy. Currently at today's high of 16°C, and the barometers are back up a bit at 1003/1011mB


        Late breakfast or early tea: a lovely big fry-up. Delicious


          Gardening day done, as am I.

            No telly bothered with today, as I was reading Dion Fortune's novel The Sea Priestess. Always instructive to read a novel about magical workings written by a practising magician

              Sheets in WM.

              Sheets out of WM and hanging on washing line.

              Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the polleny sunshine.

              Assorted garments in the WM on short wash to freshen them up a tad. .

              I'm not used to washing stuff on Mondays. .

              But it seems to be a decent drying day, so nothing ventured nothing gained, so long as the flying dinos don't crap on stuff, as is their wont.

              Spotted the first swifts/swallows/sandmartins/housemartins of the year.

              Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              Sheets dried nicely on the line, finished with the TD.

              Other stuff dried nicely on the line, finished in the TD.

              Some springs were cleaned: the duster changed a suitably grimly black colour, most satisfying.

              Tea: the rest of the cumberland sausages with carrots & onions, a yog, the rest of the mango slices, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                Morning denizens

                Sunny start out, though not very warm as yet: 6°C, rising to 13° by lunchtime, though also with a chance of showers around then. Barometers have jumped up a bit at 1008/1016mB


                  Morning all

                  Looks like a pleasant day out.
