    I omitted to mention that the bed was stripped and left airing this morning before I went out

    It has just been made in the usual JIT delivery fashion.


      Tonight's viewing was Trauma Room 1 followed by one new and a couple of old episodes of 24 Hours in A&E. I seem to have reached the pandemic in the latter, judging by the masks and the complete lack of extraneous people wandering or sitting around in the background of the department, so it won't be long before I get to ones I remember and will have to find something else to watch

      Monday again tomorrow. Heavy sigh

      Goodnight all


        Morning all

        Hot and sunny in Italy. Hope the aircon is cranked up in the office.
        …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


          Morning denizens

          Sunny start out, though word is it'll get cloudier, then sunny again towards sunset. Going to be a mild one though: 12°C now, 18° expected. The barometers are creeping up a little at 996/1004mB

          I had an atrocious night's sleep. Couldn't get to sleep for ages and, when I did, was repeatedly woken by unsettling dreams. Finally managed maybe a couple of uninterrupted hours before the alarms kicked in, and awoke to find a very itchy lump on my hand where, I assume, some winged creature of the night has feasted upon me


            Morning all

            Clear sky, some wispy fluff. Currently 13 degrees with a high of 23 expected. Barometer up a smidge to 1009 mBar.

            Heading to the office. Running late but not late enough to miss anything.

            NickFitz There is a new series of 24 Hours in A&E.






              Chilly in here at 17.3 deg, 18 deg in the kitchen, 17 deg in the leanto.

              1006 mBar, 29.707 in Hg, 754.56 Torr, 14.59 psi, (up from 1003 last night), 78% RH (GDR hair), 69% RH (Lidl electric).

              Meanwhile on the 10th of October 2019 vwdan was building stuff, WTFH had his stitches out (apart from the one that had fallen out already), whereas I was watching more Jeremiah S2 with Joan of Arcadia thrown in for good measure, and LM detailed more of her ongoing OU course.

              Shopping trip to Tesco done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

              Lunch: scrambled egg etc.

              Entertainment: TWATO. Though "entertainment" is a gross exaggeration regarding TWATO. Then again I'm not actually listening to it, it's just "on" and hasn't gone <click> quite yet but came remarkably close when Farage was on, spewing his lies.

              Veronica Mars S3 E11 "Poughkeepsie Tramps & Thieves".

              Tea: chicken in white sauce (which managed to explode in the meecro wav ay in spectacular fashion) etc. Nice enough, what was left.

              Entertainment: NCIS S20 E21 "Kompromat".

              When the fun stops, STOP.


                Currently in a big meeting led by the senior tech manager, and I'm beginning to suspect that I'm going to see this project killed in real time

                  Still here, at least for now


                    Links are, finally, up

                    A ridiculously busy day, which is just what I could have done without after last night's poor sleep

                    But the project hasn't been cancelled yet, and I managed to find a few minutes to grab a mixed charcuterie butty (wholemeal) at lunchtime


                      Tea: pork cutlet with chips and beans

                      Accompanied by E1 of The Fall: Skydive Murder Plot on All4, about the woman whose husband messed up her parachute and reserve a few years back, but who survived falling from 4,000 feet
