    Morning all The earlier mist is burning off nicely. Looks like it's going to be a good day to cancel late afternoon meetings.

    Morning denizens

    Turned the early alarms off so I could have a bit of a lie-in, as it's not like I do anything in particular when I wake earlier; I probably could do with the extra sleep more then the extra doomscrolling

    Feel moderately refreshed thereby

    It's a sunny start out, though still only 13°C; it's expected to reach 21° later, no rain is predicted, and the barometers are up a bit at 1009/1017mB ​​​​​​​

    Telly tonight has been the rest of the Icelandic murder thing, which seems like a 1970s fit-up in the finest traditions of policing back then, followed by the start of Storyville - Toffs, Queers and Traitors: The Extraordinary Life of Guy Burgess

    The lurgy has finally worn off for the most part, having tired me out enough that I'm getting an early night

    Goodnight all

    Club runs again tonight after spending the day talking about one of the six systems we will be migrating to

    Dinner was cod and mushy pea fiscakes with Asparagus. Very nice. As I got a load of Asparagus we now have soup on the hob.

    Realised I had been unfair to the Voyeurs it actually had a decent twist at the end and the lead actress is rather gorgeous in a "girl next door with big frontage" kind of way. Worth a watch.

    Currently on "The Somme 1916 from both sides of the wire" (iplayer) - interesting.

    We have ragwort in this country which isn't quite the same thing.
    Invaded years ago, apparently

    But apparently nettles and dock, among other things, can also produce a fair amount of pollen at this time of year.

    Well there's a thing:

    Well there's another thing:

    Non stop allergies from January to November.

    Stop the world I want to get off.

    Sad now. Nipped down to the shed to get something in the dark and accidentally trod on a little slug.

    Just been to a neighbour's 90th BD party. Rather nice. Had a whole pint of lager, most booze I've had in 2 years. Wondering if I need dinner after all the nibbles.

    PS But I suppose my little puppet parrot will be hungry.

    Walk briskly walked, green and blue rings closed

    It's turned sunny out there now; didn't even need a coat

    And I finally realised (after having done a lateral flow test just in case, which came out negative) that the increasingly lurgy-like symptoms this afternoon are probably hay fever; apparently ragweed pollen can be a thing at this time of year

    Taken one of the date-expired hay fever pills I got from the chemist a few years ago, just in case it helps
