    The car earlier was a BMW 8 series; it went to live in Ireland, so there's no word as to its long term fate. And some of the gold diggers did remarkably well; a 12oz nugget goes a long way

    Later, S3E4 of The Handmaid's Tale.

    I suppose I have to start getting to bed at a more reasonable time now I'm going back to ClientGov

    Goodnight all

    Uneventful day at work. Went to the dentist.

    Watched some of The Handmaid's Tale, Trucking Hell and Eurovision nonsense.

    Lunch, inevitable, has been Scotch broth; accompanied by a couple of slices of wholemeal. The broth has turned out very nice again

    Morning denizens

    Another frosty start to a sunny day here. It's now rocketed up to 2°C on its way to 7° though, and such frosty bits as have seen the sun have defrosted, though that excludes much of the lawn and many of the cars parked around it. The barometers are down a bit at 1026/1035mB

    This time tomorrow I'll have resumed work for ClientGov

    First thing I did after rising today was to divvy up the Scotch broth that had cooled overnight ready to go in the freezer when I've made room, so at least there'll be options for lunch when I'm back at the grindstone

    whereas Xogg found a metal detector in his shed along with lots of little spiders
    Gave the detector to a bloke for his kid to play with. Still keep in touch with the little spiders.

    ^^^ MillenniOM.

    Morning.

    Tuesday.

    Dry.

    Sunny. .

    Cold in here at 10.7 deg, 10.5 deg in the kitchen, 6 deg in the leanto, 2.9 deg in the saltinghouse.

    1036 mBar, 30.593 in Hg, 777.06 Torr, 15.0259 psi, (up from 1035 and a tad last night), 69% RH (GDR hair), 61% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 23rd of April 2019 I was removing the rusty tin roof of a pigsty to reveal the skeleton of a dog and lots of spiders, whereas Xogg found a metal detector in his shed along with lots of little spiders.

    Oooooer, mrs:

    https://uk.news.yahoo.com/roger-wate...033513814.html

    Our Rog has upset people again. Who'd have thunk?

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the bright sunshine, which was nice, the shade, however, was notsonice.

    And the elephant trap cum overspill on the path is still as evil as ever, getting more so as time goes on.

    Lunch: baked potato with cheese & baked beans, red (the other red not yesterday's red) corner yog, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast, 0.91*1.53 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: my tinnitus since TWATO is wall to wall earthquake. I could, however, do without the current earworm, for which many thanks are due to the WRU, the bastards..

    Some minor gardening done: lopping some branches off the apple tree, clearing weeds from around the gooseberry bushes.

    Tea: Brains' faggots Liver and bacon with onion gravy when I discovered that the defrosted pack held liver rather than faggots, some pear halves, a yog, 0.91*1.51 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: PM. It went <click> quite often.

    Wheeler Dealers S7 E4 BMW series 8: 840Ci V8: bought £3k5 (with a windscreen thrown in), Total: £5040, Sold: £5750 to a chap from Ireland which may explain why details end in 2012.

    The other series 8 he looked at, 5 litre V12 or whatever, comes to a sticky end in 2007, no further details available.

    Jane Seymour finding out Who she Thinks She Is. I think I've watched this before.

    FBI S2 E17 "Broken Promises". Only one ep this week.

    Morning all

    A light frost and foggy/misty out. Currently 0 degrees with a high of 6 forecast. Once the fog/mist has cleared it ought to be quite sunny. Barometer down to 1036 mBar.

    All bed linen, including the mattress cover, was laundered yesterday. I even got some of it out on the line for a waft in the afternoon sunshine.

    Tired this morning as I had a disturbing dream that's left me unsettled even though I don't remember much of it.

    Cold & frosty here, so outdoor jobs will have to wait. These include: lifting part of a path I put down to re-lay it flatter, putting preserver on a wooden frame, and then finishing staining a post which is going to be part of an installation at a friend’s house.

    I feel a bit rested this morning, so it must have worked.

    The pair of opal hunters who pride themselves on their digital/renewable lifestyle learned the hard way that you shouldn't try to carry a large solar panel in 65kph winds if you don't want it torn out of your hands by said winds and smashed on the ground

    But other than that, most of them did OK

    And the sapphire hunters came to the end of their seasons with a whole variety of electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic problems yet somehow still managed to find some

    I do wonder at some of the mines, machines, and electrical installations in these programmes though. Is Australia completely lacking any kind of health and safety regulations?

    Anyway, time to get to bed and do a little reading before lights out

    Goodnight all

    Dinner was sea bass with lemon & pepper butter, with kale and leeks, and a pint of blackcurrant cordial.

    Tea, then, has been lamb scouse with a couple of slices of seedy bloomer

    And four more for the freezer. Though even with two freezers, I'm going to struggle for space for them and the Scotch broth, which is still simmering gently in the slow cooker

    The car earlier was a VW type 2 van, which is still apparently going strong as it's taxed until December

    And some of the gold diggers had to call in a snake catcher when a deadly serpent invaded their patch. I suppose it's cool in a way that Australians can make a living out of catching snakes
