    Hope I don't knock me coffee over on my desk again like I've done twice in past week, they say things go in threes. Evil mug spiller demon.

        Morning.

        Dry.

        Blue sky in parts with fluffy white clouds.

        Wanly sunny.

        Cool in here at 18.9 deg.

        1019 mBar, 30.09 in Hg, 764.3 Torr, 14.779 psi, (down from 1019 and a bit last night), 72% RH.

        Monday.

        Telex machine glowing particularly brightly.

        Shopping trip to Morrisons done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

        Six lawns mown.

        Nearly dead now.

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

        Well I dunno what to make of all that.

        My left knee hurts. .

        Wheeler Dealers S16 E4 2001 Saab 9-3, whatever the feck that is. Motor Mouth is mouthing, hence <mute> Oh, it's a convertible red Saab with faded red paintwork (coz red is fugitive).

        Liked the way the hydraulic rams were fixed. I can see why very few places do repairs. .
        The Final Solution to the Motor Mouth problem: Subtitles. It's a winner. .

          Morning all

          Warm and sunny, with some fluff about. Currently 17 degrees with a high of 22 forecast. No precipitation expected. Barometer up to 1021 mBar.

          The journey to ClientCo was busy but uneventful. Although, saying that, there was still room to breathe on the District Line. Now trying to figure out which meeting room I've booked.

            Morning denizens

            Sunny kind of start is clouding over quite rapidly. Currently 16°C with 18° arriving later, and the barometers are slightly up again at 1012/1020mB

              Black bin has just been emptied, but today was a different crew to usual - instead of putting the bin onto the tipper at the back to the lorry, they grabbed the bags out of the bin. Which meant 2 bits of rubbish which weren't bagged have been left behind.

                Googling some local builders etc. re various small jobs needed in house and garden. Some of these websites are a bit rubbish, you think if you applied for a quote and did submit there would be a message that your application had been received. If it just shows a blank form again not sure it's worked.

                  I noticed similar with window cleaners' websites.

                  Still haven't managed to book one and I may just take a mop to my windows and to hell with the perfect streak-free finish.

                  You may find that you have to call them (that hasn't been successful for me either as they don't seem to pick up their voicemail / return your call).

                    Hunting for a couple of UK based Dedicated servers.

                    I can safely say that fasthosts has the slowest website I've seen in years - their name is a complete lie...
                    merely at clientco for the entertainment
