    There was some unscheduled rain on arrival into Richmond but, as I was on the bus, it didn't affect me.

    Lunch and the catch up were very nice, followed by a couple of drinks before heading home.

    For tea tonight, I ventured forth to the kebab shop for kebab and chips

    I felt a couple of spots of rain as I was getting back, but it doesn't seem to have come to much

    Cloudy out today and with a light breeze. A bit cooler at 23°C with an expected high of 24°, as the barometers head downwards to 995/1002mB

    Cooler side of phew wot a scorcher in here at 21.6 deg, 23 deg in the kitchen, 21.5 deg in the leanto.

    Meanwhile on the 23rd of October 2019 NF concluded his viewing of Breaking Bad after consuming chicken in redwine sauce, and xogg discovered that some of his mapping problems were due to the data being metric rather than the Imperial he'd assumed.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked during which it deigned to drizzle upon me.

    Lunch: baked spud etc.

    Entertainment: book about railways: I've reached 1910.
    Who'd have thunk?

    Entertainment: The Mentalist S1 E13.

    Hammering down now.

    Tea: soup etc.

    Entertainment: PM. <click>

    Scotland Yard: The Silent Witness: the bookshop owner who murders his wife & pleads manslaughter.

    Trump on the telly at the moment: appears to think indoor rallies are safe: obviously hasn't watched "The Manchurian Candidate". .

    Dixon of Dock Green S22 E3: Vagrant (1976). Nice twist on the wino's identity.

    The Mentalist S1 E14, E15, E16.

    Am Dro. May have watched this before.

    Morning all

    Dull, overcast, humid. Currently 22 degrees with a high of 24 expected. Barometer down to 1008 mBar.

    Popped to the farmers' market this morning. Picked up some goat leg steaks for HWMBO to cook up when he's back next week. The Isle of Wight tomato stall doesn't take back their reusable boxes, which I feel is very poor form.

    Off to Petersham Nurseries for lunch this afternoon.

    Having rewatched the Hunger Games films, it was time for the premiere of the prequel, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (2023). It's good but let's face it, it was only ever going to be an adjunct to the originals. It's a reasonably entertaining way of passing some time if you like the original story, though

    Following which, I was in the mood for something based more in reality, so rewatched In the Name of the Father (1993) about the appalling miscarriage of justice in the case of the Guildford Four and Maguire Seven. Very good, but it cannot be stressed to filmmakers often enough: judges in British courts don't have gavels! They're only used on Bargain Hunt in this country

    And then a further episode of The Wire

    I remembered to make the bed before all of the above - no duvet

    Goodnight all

    I have caught up on 24 Hours in A&E.

    I am still very grumpy with Channel4. They insisted that my account hadn't been used for two years and deleted it. I recreated it with the exact same login details I'd been using but obviously had lost all my lists. Will see if they delete it again in two years' time.

    While out shopping earlier, I treated myself to a wok. So tea tonight has been sweet & sour pork with fried rice. I'm not about to claim that it was as good as you'd get from a Chinese, but it was very nice

    I need to make the bed soon, as I left it to air in the heat of the day. Not sure I need bother with the arduous process of putting a duvet inside the cover until the weather cools down a bit

    …if, indeed, it has one

    The decision is now with somebody at an external org who is in the middle of their two week holiday. So we won't find out anything until a week on Monday at the earliest
