    I remember being in Amsterdam years ago with the TV on the background while getting ready to go out and thinking that I was watching a very bizarre TV programme because an advert went on for what felt like 10 minutes! (And no, I wasn't watching QVC or similar shopping channel)
    That sounds like the kind of thing, yes

      The adverts I detest are the scumbag gambling ones, in particular the 888 sponsor thing on Blaze with that black idiot showing his tonsils.

      Thankfully they've change it a bit so that particular irritation has gone.

      I much prefer watching Blaze earlier in the day with the Duckduckgo sponsor instead.

      Meanwhile back on 8th March 2019 WTFH had found some bottles of wine he'd forgotten he had, while NF had a drugs review with the quack.

          I used to think the My5 app asked me to confirm I was over 18 at the start of a programme because of people swearing and so on, but eventually I realised it's so that they can show me adverts for bookmakers and Viagra

            Tea has been a nice fry-up

              A cocktail bar we wanted to try for an early evening drink was inconsistent across multiple sources as to its opening hours today. After twice happening upon it closed at times it was supposed to be open we have given up and gone back to the hotel a bit earlier than planned.

              HWMBO has found a gin bar moments away from our dinner location so hopefully that one knows what time it's supposed to be open and we'll have a nice pre-prandial beverage there.

                Just had one of those nice big strawberry tarts from the cake counter in Sainsbury's

                  25l of apple juice in a big fermenting bin.
                  Now deciding how much to freeze as apple juice and how much to make cider.

                  And it’s TFBSZ

                    Tonight's viewing has been parts one and two (of three) of Berlin 1945 which is basically photo and film montages with the words of people at the time, mainly from ordinary people's diaries and letters.

                    Early night now, as the solicitor will apparently phone me first thing tomorrow morning to get my approval for moving ahead with the flat purchase

                    Goodnight all

                      Morning all

                      The sun is not yet ris - 0810 apparently. Cloudy, a bit damp but no active precipitation and low chance of it in the forecast. Currently 7 degrees with a high of 8 expected.

                      The gin bar last night was excellent. Dinner was delicious with superb service too.

                      Now trying to summon the energy to get dressed and go to work.
