    Afternoon all

    Dry but dull and overcast out. Except it then started spitting a tiny bit when I was out on the patio taking the dead leaves off my fatsia. Anyway, it's currently 14 degrees and that's as high as it'll get with rain expected off and on all day. Barometer at 999 mBar.

    Just noticed the battery in the mantlepice clock has died (at a few minutes' before 10). Another one to add to the pile for recycling should I ever manage to remember to take them somewhere. I have lots of Brita water filters that also need putting into the recycling. They have collection boxes for such things at Tesco which, unlike the ones in Robert Dyas, actually look like they get emptied.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
    'Rocketman' a film based on the life of Sir Elton John premiers at the Cannes Film Festival 2019

    ^^^ Yet another Philip K. Dickian nightmare, then.

    Morning.

    Grey.

    White sky, surprisingly bright.

    No current precipitation.

    Sunless.

    Warmer at 18.1 deg in here.

    995 mBar, 29.38 in Hg, 57% RH.

    Sunday.

    Thusly the wireless is currently silent.

    <hiatus>

    Sunday shopping trip to Tesco & Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised and put away.

    Lunch: two faggots with peas, a red pippy corner yog, a couple of bramble jelly sandwiches, and 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Dunno why but I couldn't be arsed to cook anything today.

    All kinds of viewing tonight, starting with The Adjustment Bureau (2011) which I thought was pretty good really

    Then, well, I always like watching The Devil Wears Prada (2006) so I did

    And then, well, I also (rather to my surprise the first time) like watching Straight Outta Compton (2015) so I did that too

    Goodnight all

    It seems like it was quick, at any rate. A visitor left him at 1pm yesterday, and a carer arrived at 1:30pm and found him dead.
    Best way to go really.

    Like a lady down the street, sat on the sofa, just had her tea, watching the box.

    Compared with my lot it sounds like a fecking dream.

    Busyness status: a rather curt "Yes"; when I suggested that perhaps lots of people were celebrating the football, it elicited a muttered "Football mad" as she rushed back into the kitchen

    Sorry for you loss, Nick. Mind you, I wouldn't mind my epitaph being that I died in a Chinese (aka wifey)

    My daughter-in-law just reported that their other neighbor just died. One day shy of seventy. Her sister was in the other flat and died in January.

    The lovely Waitrose delivery lady was only a few minutes later than the upper boundary of the time slot, so she's doing well despite saying the roads are a nightmare (there's still helicopters out and about, keeping an eye on things).
