    Morning all

    Cloudy with flecks of grey, some blue sky trying to poke through. Windy. Currently 18 degrees with a high of 22 expected. Barometer up to 1014 mBar.

    Off to see Mum after I've had my coffee. Down on the coast it'll be 19 degrees all day until it isn't.


      Afternoon denizens

      Cloudy with a few blue bits out, and quite breezy too. Currently 18°C, possibly soaring to 19° later, and the barometers are back up a bit at 999/1006mB


        Early tea or late lunch? Either way, it was breakfast: a nice big fry-up


          Today saw the usual lineup of Canadian border folk and New Zealand cops, and there's also a new (which probably means "less than ten years old") thing about police dispatchers in some American town which is moderately interesting. Then later, an old episode of 24 Hours in A&E

          Monday tomorrow. I feel like I need a break TBH. But I'm thinking of taking a few days off around the August Bank Holiday, by which time I'll definitely want one

          Goodnight all


            Morning denizens

            Sunny start out, though still breezy and not getting too hot: currently 13°C with a predicted high of 18°, and a 20% chance of showers mid-afternoon. The barometers are hesitantly down at 997/1005mB

            I was awoken a little after five by an odd banging noise, though after a few moments it became apparent that it was coming from something in the dream I'd just been having. So I went for a much-needed piss, which was presumably why my brain had decided to wake me in this way, and then back to sleep







              Cool in here at 19.5 deg, 20.5 deg in the kitchen, 18.5 deg in the leanto.

              1007 mBar, 29.737 in Hg, 755.3 Torr, 14.6 psi, (down from 1008.5 last night), 68% RH (GDR hair),

              Meanwhile on the 24th of June 2019 nothing much happened.

              Telex machine glowing particularly brightly this morning.

              Shopping trip to Tesco done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away. 34 out, 38 back. Managed to avoid the rain, which was good.

              Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on toasted crust, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast, red corner yog (gone up to £4 for 6 in Tesco, making the £3.50 for 6 in Morrisons seem cheap), 0.91*1.55 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              Entertainment: Y&Y waffling on about private edjumakashen, TWATO, some guff about IT, the web, broadband, dialup at 13:45, with an ASR33 (from the sound of it) thrown in for good measure from some ancient 1960s edition of Tomorrow's World re WFH).

              Freecell score: 100% (of 8), running average:85%.

              Entertainment: Trucking Hell S2 E6: Rory! transporting the Red Commer truck. The one with the railway engine on a low loader.

              Tea: chicken in white sauce with rice n peas, a yog & the last of the stewed gooseberries & raspberries, 0.91*1.55 pints of good Glengettie tea.

              Entertainment: PM. TSo'CN.
