    Morning all

    Raining off and on and in varying levels of wetness. At the moment it's that fine 'mizzle' type that looks like nothing but gets you very soggy, very quickly. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 16 expected. Barometer down to 1006 mBar.

    Most effort this morning has been spent on job hunting and flat hunting. The former has been fruitless and the latter has been mostly about what I can compromise on. I have a load of viewings booked in for tomorrow and there's one this lunchtime too.

    Meanwhile on the 1st of October 2019, there were blue skies for LM, whereas WTFH was waiting for the deluge to abate before going for a walk, it was grey for NF, and I managed to walk down to town & back without opening the brolly, while WTFH was caught in a downpour & got his dressings wet.

    Shopping trip to Tesco done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

    Lunch: Scrambled egg etc.

    Entertainment: Y&Y <click>.

    TWATO. <click> The thing about China at 13:45.

    I watched the second part of the cold case thing earlier

    And some time was spent mucking around with SceneKit, again

    Then, in the continuing mission to have as many books being read at the same time as possible, I started reading Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany by Norman Ohler. Having invented methamphetamine, they then sold it without prescription, including boxes of chocolates containing 14mg of meth each. These were aimed particularly at housewives, who were advised to eat three to nine of them at a go so as to make undertaking the housework easier

    Goodnight all

    There has been much rain this afternoon and evening. I drove HWMBO to Heathrow as he's taking an extra case up with him filled with my clothes ahead of our holiday at the end of June. Just in case I end up with my life packed in boxed in a storage unit, at least I know I have something to wear in Barbados.

    Tea has been steak & Hobgoblin stout pie out of the freezer, with chips

    And lunch was the last of the Chinese leftover chow mein, quickly stir fried with a bit of extra soy

    Rain can be seen approaching on the radar, due to arrive very soon and continue through the night and, it appears, right the way through tomorrow as well

    Morning.

    Tuesday.

    Woke at 06:15. Gave up. Got up. Played Freecell. Crap. Gave up.

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    Blue sky.

    Cool in here at 18.8 deg, 19.5 in the kitchen, 18 deg in the leatto.

    1006 mBar, 29.707 in Hg, 754.56 Torr, 14.59 psi, (down from 1010 last night), 78% RH (GDR hair), 73% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 30th of September 2019 WTFH got wet on the way home from the pub, NF had ribs & chips for tea, and I watched yet more Jeremiah with a side helping of "The Contractor" with that Wesley Snipes, Lena Headey, and Charles Dance.

    Today's enterprise was killing the black mould on the ceiling above the cooker, moving said cooker & cleaning behind & beside it, removing the shelves & pots & pans & washing everything, then forgetting how it all goes back. Even tightened the fixing screws on the top shelf so it doesn't sag any more. (Said shelves are of the "floating" variety. .

    Lunch: baked spud etc. Need to eat more spuds before they start growing roots.

    Entertainment: TWATO. <click> The thing about those nice CCP people.

    Walk (abbreviated) walked in the sunshine. No jacket. Shirt sleeves.

    Entertainment: Veronica Mars S2 E14 "Versatile Toppings": the gay blackmail one.

    Saltinghouse floor mopped out, the water went black. Dunno when I did it last.

    Tea: chicken breast, sausage, bacon: that's my meat ration for the week. . Nice enough. Two of the sausage were "Dragon" and ram jam full of chilli.

    Entertainment: Thunder and lightning, very very frightening. It's rattling away up there like a good 'un. I've put the light on because it's gone very dark indeed.

    Scotland Yard: the one about the fake marriage bureau.

    Freecell score: 89%, running average: 86%.

    Maigret S13 E6 "A shadow in the courtyard (2004)". The chap shot in his office with an empty safe behind him one: another 6.35mm pistol. They seem to like those. Unlike the 1960 UK version we weren't shown the money floating down the Seine.

    Bits of "The Outlaw Josey Wales (1975)": specifically bits where he happened to off people who were trying to bounty hunt him. I really like Chief Dan George in that film.

    Wait till you get long term insomnia. Been coping with it for a few years now, tried everything, all the tips on Google, online courses, expensive sound therapy machine, small fortunes on so called natural remedies in Holland & Barret. All cr**p.

    Tonight's viewing was S1E1 of Cold Case Investigators: Solving Britain’s Sex Crimes on iPlayer

    And later, I read some more of Atomic Accidents

    Wonder if my lustre will have returned tomorrow?

    Goodnight all
