    Yes, it's nice to have time for things that matter

      The alarm went off as I trundled my trolley out of the scan-as-you-go checkout compound, so I had to back up. The woman going round approving stuff was busy just then so I started lifting my bags one by one and waving them at the sensors to work out what it could be; and it turned out to be the whole shoulder of lamb

      Om!

        The pub/microbrewery is shutting down at the end of the year!

        I didn't realise me moving would have such a drastic effect on the local economy - particularly as I've only been there once since the pandemic started

          Contract came through, so it's back to work tomorrow until a week on Thursday

          And my replacement as Tech Lead has finally got his security clearance through and is starting this Thursday, so I'll have to try to fake some semblance of competence while answering his questions during the handover period

            Tea: lamb scouse, accompanied by what I think are the last thick ends of seedy bloomer that I'd managed to save over the summer

              Mars is looking very red as it rises over to the ENE

                  The car earlier was a Humvee, which is a silly thing to drive unless you're invading somewhere

                  And the opal hunters had their usual varied problems, though at least some of them seemed to be doing all right by the end

                  And then the latest episode of Ambulance which for some reason reckons it's started a new series, S10, though it's still in the northeast

                  Early night now as I gear up for the final eight days

                  Goodnight all

                    Morning denizens

                    Sunny start out (nominally "foggy" but that probably only applies out in the wilds) and chilly from the open skies at 4°C. Weather app is claiming it's a cloudy start, but there's literally not a cloud in the sky. Anyway, it's supposed to get to 17° later (because of all the sunshine) and the barometers are rocketing back up at 1019/1027mB

                      Morning all
                      CBS, 8oC out. Very pleasant walk earlier, but I already regret looking at work emails as a project manager has just pinged me.
