    I've gone through several of those. Lidl did a nice selection back in the day for £3 each.

    I'm still using the two Lidl dishes I bought yonks ago, the sky dish came down off the chimney since it was impossible to access and the chimney was taken down when the roof was replaced.
    Your occasional reminder that if you use a Freesat box, there's a possibility you have some of my code in your living room

    Hallway fire lit, that will spill heat into the lounge to make for a cosy evening.

    Rather boring walk. What looked a nice riverside walk path on the map had little view of the river and was through ploughed fields and those plantations with all the trees in lines. And grey, not sunny like it was supposed to be according the WF.

    Mundane laundry done and draped; quick wash, obviously

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    I took the alternative slightly shorter route today, as the watch had deigned to give me a few minutes of credit for the shopping expedition

    Quite mild out; no nasty breezes today

    Must get the mundane laundry on now

    Elevensies was an out of date cherry and amaretto stollen.

    Lunch is fish fingers in a seeded wrap.

    I hadn't used the car at all since it was fixed and it's been a week, so I thought I'd just give it a quick run down to Sainsbury's. Not that I really needed anything much

    I returned with seven bags of shopping

    Still, a lot of it was stuff like bin liners and similar non-perishables that it's worth stocking up on given the opportunity. And it was only seven bags because I had all the bags and putting a smallish amount in each one makes it easier to work out an even weight distribution between left and right when carrying them all in from the car

    Lunch: a "deliciously seasoned" chicken leg from the hot food counter (may no longer be very hot)

    There's a lot of rusty ones around here, along with several that still point at the old Sky analogue location at 19 deg E.

    An F-15 out of Lakenheath has just flown overhead, rather low and rather fast. Currently heading north towards the M4

    Morning denizens

    Grey day, but it'll be a bit warmer as a result: it's up to 3°C already from 2° about thirty minutes ago, and will soar to as much as 6° by lunchtime or early afternoon. The barometers continue high at 1031/1039mB

    The bin has been popped out the back for, found to have been emptied, and been trundled back in
