    Telly was another episode of The Repair Shop, followed by the remaining two episodes of A House Through Time

    The last of these surprised me with a mention of one of the books of Dr. Israel Regardie, a number of whose works grace my shelves - he was a practitioner of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn's system of magic and, indeed, is largely responsible for our modern knowledge of the order's practices. Turns out he once knew a couple of Theosophists who lived in the house in question. And that led on to an explanation of certain aspects of Theosophy by Dr. Fern Riddell, which was another surprise as she's the historian I mentioned earlier in the year:

    Tea has been M&S Old English sausages with chips and beans. Very nice

    Not sure how old the sausages were; they seem to have been cluttering the freezer forever. I probably got them around the time of my second covid jab in April, as I came home via M&S that day

    Busy day at the coal face. My macro is now done and working well. Just need to copy it and make a second for another file that's in a slightly different format.

    It's more than one line of code so that means I've not yet achieved my goal of replacing myself with a single line macro.

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    Incorporating a trip to the Amazon Locker at the end as, whilst walking, I was notified that my new toy had been delivered: a hand coffee grinder

    For years I've been using the "spice mill" attachment of my parents' old liquidiser for this task, but it's rather loud and, the coffee experts say, blades aren't good for grinding beans. I doubt I'll ever notice the difference TBH, not being a connoisseur, but a couple of minutes burr-grinding beans in the morning seems worth a try for a bit, just in case it does make any difference

    And it was only cheap so I can always go back to the noisy method if I get fed up of cranking the handle
