    Tea has been late due to disorganisation, but was very nice indeed once I finally got it all together: roast beef dinner, exceedingly tasty

    It was all going quite well until I took the joint out to rest, at which point I remembered I was out of Yorkshire puds, mainly because there isn't room for them in the freezer at the moment

    So I thought, why not try making my own. This is one of those culinary arts I've only rarely tried, but I hoiked out my phone, Googled a recipe, mentally adjusted the quantities, and in the end judged it pretty much by eye. And you know what? They came out really nice; two big ones for want of the appropriate-sized tin for small ones, and twice as much as needed because of getting the quantities wrong, but I'll squeeze the spare one into the freezer somehow. I must make my own more often, because I was impressed at how nice it tasted

    But obviously having to do all that delayed things a bit. Still, it meant the joint had plenty of time to rest.

    The beef was very thinly sliced on the electric slicer and there's loads left for sandwiches; looks like I'll be living off alternate lunches of roast beef and roast pork sarnies for the foreseeable future

    It was very entertaining indeed. Three hours to record a half hour show. Much will be left on the cutting room floor.

    Cooked a chilli con carne tonight (Hairy Bikers' recipe). Very good. Strangely Mrs NAT complain it was too hot - she normally can handle far more spice than me. It didn't stop her having a second helping.

    Watched Louis Theroux on Joe Exotic. I managed to get through two episodes of Tiger King before giving up, disgusted with the way the producers were so obviously making a narrative (I've an allergy to conspiracy theories). Louis' documentary on the other hand is very worth watching - still, watch out for the narrative setting!

    ...and so to bed.

    I ordered a book off Amazon at 10:55 this morning. Just got a text telling me it's been delivered to the Locker

    Walk briskly walked, green and red rings closed

    Very pleasant out, and definitely no need for the warm coat

    Weighing up whether to wear the warm coat for my walk. Apparently it's 15°C with a "feels like" of 14°, so I don't think it will be necessary

    The sun has come out again and it's back to the blue sky and fluffy clouds we had this morning

    We just had our sprint retrospective and the people down in London were moaning about the weather. Turns out the designer is up in Manchester; he and I were both able to smugly inform them that it's lovely and sunny where we are, and one of the other contract devs though it was quite nice where he lives in Basingstoke too

    I thought today was going to be quite quiet, but instead it's been really busy

    Anyway, most importantly: lunch was bacon and sausages in white finger rolls

    It's stayed dryer than the forecast had me believe this morning although the expectation of thunderstorms is imminent.

    The late arrival of the refuse engineers has meant that the waste from all the parcels delivered today could be added to the pile on the pavement and not clutter up the place until Thursday evening/Friday morning.

    Lunch was the remains of the Heinz Tomato soup, this time with two slices of toasted and buttered wholemeal bread.

    Morning.

    Dark grey verging on black.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Dreadful.

    Damp verging on murrain of beasts.

    Sunless.

    1011 mBar, 29.85 in Hg, 58% RH.

    Tuesday.

    Walk walked whilst the deluge is on pause.

    Lunch: Heinz leek & potato soup with Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed bread, bramble jelly on Morrisons oat & barley bread, a red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment in the ennui of retirement: "The Caine Mutiny (1954)" with that Humphrey Bogart chap.

    Trucking Hell wherein Rory appears.

    Tea: Tesco breaded cod, some tinned pears, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: "Discovering Yule Brynner" on Sky Arts.

    "The Bodyguard (1992)" with that Kevin Costner chap & the late Whitney Houston.

    Amusing enough, and it gets rid of a dupe dvd to boot.
