    A fox is not just for XMAS. I thought it was too rude to mention it!

    What with all the rushing around tonight, there was just the remainder of yesterday's Traffic Cops watched whilst dining

    Still not Friday tomorrow. Not convinced about this five-day working week thing

    Goodnight all

    No tellybox this evening. I instead read a bit of this week's Private Eye and listened to several episodes of The Compass (a BBC World Service jobby) - Changing World, Changing Bodies and The Senses from last year. The former being about how our bodies have adapted (or not) to being largely sedentary blobs and the latter being about when our senses go wrong and the super power that is synaesthesia (except for the poor chap who gets tastes in his mouth to words - 'Maureen' tastes like lumpy vomit but Tottenham Court Road tastes like sausages, fried egg and toast).

    That's the Scotch broth divvied up, yielding four additional hearty portions - not as much as I sometimes get, because it was only a half-shoulder of lamb and not a very big one at that

    As predicted, tea has been Scotch broth with wholemeal bread. This batch has turned out extremely well

    The car has been taken out, and Sainsbury's has been gone to

    Pretty quiet there around 20:30 on a Wednesday, it turns out. Shortages weren't too bad; some stuff I think had just sold out, as it tends to around that time. My Big Chicken isn't very big, but it was the last one left

    Other noticeable gaps that were clearly due to supply chain problems: no tomato ketchup; no own-brand naan; no yellow flesh nectarines.

    But as shortages go, it's nothing like the scale of spring last year. Plenty of meat and veg and the idiots seem to have steered clear of the pasta, presumably because they have plenty left

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    I was thinking of taking the car out for a charge and some shopping when I got back, but I spotted a suspicious number of people in blue shirts, and the road parallel to this one was busy with traffic in a certain pattern I've come to recognise. So I checked when I got in and it's true: football is happening at the place over the river from me

    I'll give them all a while to get there and go out later instead. Tonight's meal will be either the Scotch broth I've had in the slow cooker all day or something quick and easy out of the freezer, so it doesn't matter if I'm a bit late

    Lunch, BTW, was sausages in finger rolls

    Lunch was a fresh baked baguette (half of) topped with some caponata type stuff I made the other day and a bit of grated parmesan.

    You could have documented it as a milestone.

    "Milestone : Achieved CUK Century 11:46 2021-08-04"

    seems as valid as our project plan which is sponsored by Andrex or should be it is "soft, wrong and very very long"

    I'm quite enjoying the repeats of Mastertapes on Radio 4 of an evening. In the 11.30 pm slot where you'd usually get 'today in Parliament' when they're not on holiday.

    Monday and yesterday evening was with Paul Weller and one I caught last week was with Suzanne Vega.
