    Lunch: roast beef bap (wholemeal) and a bag of crisps (plain)

    Quite sunny out now. The gardener chappy has been down on the lawns with his lawnmower this morning, so the place is looking slightly more kempt

    I got called upon to give a quick demo of some stuff to senior management at about two minutes' notice this morning. Makes a change


      Spag bol for tea. Very tasty, but now I need to make more bol


        Watched a bit of Brighton plod stuff on All4 to accompany dinner, but no telly tonight other than that. Read a bit more of Shepperton Babylon though

        I've woken up still feeling quite tired the last couple of mornings, so I'm getting a proper early night now in the hope it'll get me caught up on sleep

        Just remembered, there's somebody coming round to inspect the flat door tomorrow; something about fire safety. Between 8:45 and 16:00, apparently. Good of them to be so precise

        Goodnight all


          Morning all
          …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


            Morning denizens

            Another overcast start, though not expected to brighten up a bit like it did yesterday; instead, it'll get windy and possibly (35-40%) rainy from around teatime onwards. Currently 4°C and maybe getting to 11° after dark, with the barometers down a little bit at 1006/1014mB










              Chilly in here at 11.6 deg, 11 deg in the kitchen, 9.5 deg in the leanto.

              1015 mBar, 29.973 in Hg, 761.31 Torr, 14.72 psi, (down from 1017 last night), 75% RH (GDR hair), 64% RH (Lidl electric).

              Meanwhile on the 2nd of September 2019 we were stuck on discussions of farthings and corned beef.

              To add to my joie de vivre I discovered that one of the security lights had failed, and, as always, was on permanently. Thankfully it was equipped with a LED bulb rather than the 200W halogen. Switched the lot off & I'll fix it when it stops raining, assuming it ever does. I think that sensor has been there for a couple of years coz I changed it when the previous one died.

              It hasn't stopped raining. .

              Lunch: scrambled egg etc.

              Entertainment: Y&Y waffling on about something.

              NZ Customs thing.

              Oz customs thing: Chinese woman losing her rag when her bags are opened: quite the biggest poody I've seen on said programme. Chap carrying a snowboard (in summer) for someone else: the someone else will be ever so pleased they drilled a hole in it. . Criminal from China put back on the plane: he'd been busted elsewhere for ketamine. WTF the Chinese chap had brought live worms (worms with legs at that) with him as fishing bait: $340. And they really were live.

              Tea: soup etc.

              Entertainment: UFO Hunters. Blaze bollox that's too bolloxy even for me.

              The Mentalist S1 E3.

              Dan Do. All you need is money: Barn that was turned into something like a long house. Family in Swansea. House swap in Pontcanna, Cardiff.

              The Bad Skin Clinic: chap with pilar cysts. Girl with eczema. Woman with lipoma.

              Dr Pimple Popper. Woman with lipoma. Chap with pilar cysts on his head. Woman with rhinophyma.

              When the fun stops, STOP.


                Morning all

                Dull and cloudy. No precipitation at present but some is forecast from mid-afternoon onwards. Currently 11 degrees with a high of 12 expected. Barometer down to 1021 mBar.

                Tired today. Not feeling all that enthusiastic.


                  Lunch: a bacon cob

                  Unsmoked because I picked some up by mistake the other week. I wish they'd stop rearranging the bacon shelves

                    Don't know how true it is, but it was suggested today that the senior manager in question has a tendency to do this as a deliberate ploy to catch people out, presumably to some end that makes sense to senior managers. Anyway, didn't work with me


                      Tea: lamb steaks with chips, peas and gravy. Very tasty

                      Accompanied by a new episode of Traffic Cops
