    Oh, and I got a text from the GP surgery this morning exhorting me to book a flu shot. I followed the link therein and there was a slot this afternoon, so I'll be popping next door for that in just under three hours

      Aye, It's a bit of a PITA but since I'm WFH and Majestic wine deliver it's not the end of the world. Although, I have noticed that my lack of impromptu trips to the supermarket means there's a lot less snackage available in the house.

        We have begun the final sprint of my tenure at ClientGov; I shall not see the end of it (barring any further last-minute extension), so am concentrating on minor tickets, tech debt that could do with clearing up, and any questions the other devs might have for handover

        And the post, which is getting even later than it already was, has arrived bearing the dead tree copies of all the mortgage offer documents

        They've taken their time getting here, given that the existence of the offer was confirmed via email a week ago, but I imagine mortgage providers have had to send out a lot of post over the past week or so
        And there's been a mail strike

          Ah yes, so there has - that probably didn't help

                Inside Man has been watched. Found it very funny, like In Bruges with a bit of Breaking Bad.

                  The car earlier was an unsafe-at-any-speed Chevrolet Corvair, which looked quite nice once they'd finished. Also, they added the extra bit that stops it rolling over when going round corners

                  Then some new opal hunters, along with some returning ones, were starting their seasons with moderately good results

                  A leftover bit of old Police Interceptors got me through my evening meal

                  And finally, the Air Crash Investigation into Indonesia AirAsia Flight 8501 which plummeted into the Java Sea following an ill-advised attempt to get rid of a perfectly valid fault warning by pulling the circuit breakers for a large number of the control systems

                  Likely to rain overnight and tomorrow, it seems. And the chestnut tree is starting to change colour properly now, so it seems autumn is well and truly upon us

                  Goodnight all

                    Grey start again and likely to be a bit rainy too. Currently a fairly mild 17°C (the higher the day) but there's a proper wind blowing too. And the barometers have plummeted a further 10mB or so to 996/1004mB

                      Morning all

                      A very windy night (including a couple of power outages), and still pretty breezy this morning.

                      I doubt if Pondy will be flying today.
