    At the flat and connected to the Internet, so I’m not sure what the OpenReach engineer is expecting to do

    There seems to have been a bit of a thaw, and I get the impression it may not have snowed quite so much here. So I could have done a three-box book run after all


      The OpenReach guy arrived, by which time I’d almost completed construction of a Billy bookcase. I got the second done while he was down the road at the cabinet, where he discovered a fault upstream to the exchange. So he put it on another line for now, but somebody will have to fix that and switch it back, possibly tomorrow morning


        Home again

        It's not very warm in here after the new place

        I had a bit of toast after posting the links but hadn't managed anything else for lunch, so I think I'll see what there is in the freezer to use up as I'm quite peckish now


          A hot dog turned out to be just the thing

                The car earlier was a Fiat 124 Sport Spider, which is a kind of sports car. And some of the gold hunters did well, and some didn't.

                Then an old episode of 24 Hours in A&E accompanied the evening repast

                And finally an episode of The Repair Shop because I'm still massively behind on that

                I want to get over to the new place tomorrow morning in case the OpenReach people need to test anything, so I shall take a batch of books and get the other two new bookcases assembled, then secure all four to their respective walls (two in the living room, two in the study) and get them at least partially populated. I've got some spare shelves to take with me as well, if I remember.

                Goodnight all


                  Morning all
                  A bit of flat light this morning, combined with some overnight snow, so it will be interesting conditions for day 2 legs.

                    Morning denizens

                    Cold start again, but at least it isn't snowing this time and most of yesterday's covering has gone. Currently -3°C, not expected to rise above 0°, and the barometers continue hovering at 1001/1010mB

                      You're lucky, hasn't here. There's a funny set of footprints on the lawn, smallish but seem much too far apart for a normal cat. Might be a velociraptor.
