    Morning all
    A bit wet out (the garden will appreciate it), so have delayed the walk until lunchtime
    …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


      Morning denizens

      "Mostly cloudy" out, though I'd say wholly cloudy, though supposedly some gaps might open up shortly. Currently 13°C with 18° expected this afternoon, no rain prophesied, and the barometers are sharply down at 1005/1013mB


        All the little cellar spiders are popping up in the house again. One of the many things I don't understand about nature, what on earth do house or cellar spiders eat? No insects around that I can see.

        If everything isn't black and white, I say, 'Why the hell not?'

          ^^^ Said spiders are checking if you're still breathing. Plenty of flies about if you're not.




          Wanly sunny.

          Less chilly in here at 17.8 deg.

          1012 mBar, 29.88 in Hg, 759.1 Torr, 14.6778 psi, (down from 1013 last night), 73% RH.


          Tuesday apparently.

          I may resume the massacre of the brambles today, seeing as they've had about 6 weeks to grow out of control.

          Walk (unabbreviated & unextended) walked in the grey gloom interspersed with drizzle and rain.

          Just as well I took a brolly with me.

          TV Times purchased.

          Lunch: baked potatoes with cheese & baked beans, a red corner yog, bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

          Due to the inclemency of the weather, I suspect the gardening is left for another day.

          Freecell score: 100%, running average 84.545%.

          Sun came out: brambles, ivy, & cleavers duly massacred.

          Greenhouse now half full of detritus again. .

          Entertainment: Discovering Tom Hanks: thought it seemed a bit familiar, I watched it last month.

          Tea: Tesco battered cod, the last of the fruit cocktail, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

          Entertainment: Farscape S2 E5 "The way we weren't": the Pilot replacement one.

          Pembrokeshire farm thing with Griff Rhys Jones & sprog

            Morning all

            Another scorchio sunny day here. It's 22 degrees and a high of 23 expected. Although I suspect it will get higher than that.

            We leave Malaga this afternoon, just deciding what to do in town this morning. Get a decent cup of coffee, most likely.


              We didn't go back into town as it felt like we didn't really have time once we'd gotten ourselves organised.

              Just left Malaga and are taking a leisurely pootle towards Palma, Mallorca.


                Lunch has been Scotch broth with multiseed bread

                And the other developer seems to have vanished and I can't really move on until he's approved a PR, so I'm having a cup of coffee and some ginger nuts

                  Just over 1nm from port now, I see



                    I think LM should stay on holiday as it is sunny in London town. Was grey early but now the sun has got his hat on! 19 degrees.

                    Ran out to mow the lawn.

                    Back to work.

                      Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

                      Very pleasant out there; just enough white fluffiness hanging around to soften the warm glow of the sun, and a bit of a breeze too
