    Cumuli are lingering a bit, so it's sunny spells rather than full-on sunny. Still made it to 20°C out there though, with 23.6° within

    Lunch has been zingy chicken, tomato and lentil soup with wholemeal bread

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    Blue sky.

    Tuesday.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked.

    Now for some more massacre of the brambles/roses/anything else I can massacre.

    Roses massacred.

    Lawn strimmed a bit more now the rose isn't taking over.

    Some weeding done.

    Morning all

    It's dull and overcast. No precipitation at present so the bins were quickly trundled. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 20 expected later. It's supposed to only be partly cloudy until early evening when the rain is due to return. Barometer steady at 1010 mBar.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
    Harvard University win the first Boat Race against Yale University 1852

    Morning denizens

    Imminently sunny out today once the high cloud clears a bit; 12°C at the moment but could reach a whole 21° later, no rain foreseen (though they said that yesterday) and barometers a sliver down at 1006/1014mB

    Oops, looks like I failed to hit the button to post this last night, so here it is

    Telly was a new episode of Police Interceptors

    All well and good, but it's no Trucking Hell

    But most of the evening was spent reading Gordon Corera's book Russians Among Us, about the Soviet and, later, Russian illegals programme (as seen in The Americans), covering (among other things) the history of such agents and the FBI's operation that culminated in the arrest and exchange of a bunch of them in 2010. Very good reading so far

    Time for bed now though, so I can get a head start on those data visualisations tomorrow

    Goodnight all

    I was meant to trundle the recycling but it's raining so I will leave it to the morning. It's supposed to be dry by then.

    I had to shut a window or two because the heating on I think I may reopen the living room one a bit though.

    Ribs and chips for tea, just for a change

    I've got a bunch of uncooked ribs in the freezer, thanks to Sainsbury's short dates on last week's delivery. Might do them with my fancy mango sauce later in the week

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    It continues grey out, though not as dark as earlier and the rain cleared off several hours ago. So quite OK conditions for a walk

    I had a moderately productive day in parts; I solved a couple of niggling problems, but I was a bit lacking in enthusiasm. But the product manager has to give a demo to The Stakeholders on Wednesday afternoon which may be the decider concerning a September extension, so we need to get some good-looking stuff done tomorrow and Wednesday morning
