    Telly, other than Monkey Life this afternoon and evening, has been the rest of the thing about Silk Road

    It ended with a nice re-enactment of the arrest of DPR when a couple of FBI agents pretended to have an argument behind him as he was on the site in a public library, allowing another agent to leap out and grab his laptop, still logged into his account, while yet more rushed up and grabbed him. Pretty neat operation, I'll give them that

    Another Monday looms. One more after that before - I sincerely hope - I get to have a bit of a break

    Goodnight all

    Dinner eaten.

    Oak Island tutted at.

    Emailed landlady about a light switch hanging off the wall.

    Bed about to be made.

    Bed time will commence once bed has been made.

    There was a brief shower this afternoon, just before I took HWMBO to the airport, but other than wash the worst of the dust off my car it didn't stick around to cause much annoyance.

    Towels washed and hung out.

    Still not yet made the bed but I did hoover it when having a quick wizz about to get fluff off the carpet.

    A couple of episodes of The Curse of Oak Island watched.

    Realised I've not had dinner so a healthy meal of fish fingers and chips is in the oven (McCains bistro chips are pricey but do come out nice and crispy)

    Brightened up a bit here later in the afternoon

    There were dire prognostications about a massive storm sweeping through, but as far as I can tell just rained moderately for a bit this morning

    Second load out of the WM and hung up.

    Towels now in.

    I'll do the mattress cover in the week once things have dried and I have more space.

    Thought I was catching up on 24 Hours in A&E but the bit at the end where they give the birth/death years of those that passed away said 2017

    EDIT: I see that this year's episodes say 'first shown' before the date and and the repeats just show the most recent date of airing. Sneaky.

    Indeed Brunch was egg, bacon, posh mushrooms, asparagus in a muffin. Washed down with a pint of coffee liberally laced with sugar free caramel flavouring.

    Miss V3 joined me on the egg & bacon. Not big on mushrooms or asparagus.

    Bed was stripped on return from breakfast, once HWMBO had packed.

    First load was put in the WM before taking him to the airport. Now I'm back, load one has been hung up and the second load is now in.

    Turned the work laptop on to make sure there's no surprises for tomorrow morning. Only IT closing a ticket claiming I wasn't responding to requests for information (I was on holiday!) and asking for information they've already had twice. It's taken 4 months to provision a network share and assign permissions to it

    Afternoon denizens

    Having woken around 8:30 I immediately went back to sleep, and awoke much later feeling much better for it

    It's been raining, though I think not the torrential downpours that were predicted, and it seems to be tailing off now. Currently 15°C, maybe reaching 19° later, with the barometer up a touch at 1007/1015mB

    Morning all

    Hazy sunshine this morning which is looking like it will cloud over and rain this afternoon. Currently 17 degrees with a high of 19 expected. Barometer down to 1014 mBar.

    Off out for breakfast before HWMBO goes home later today.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
    Michael Eavis hosts the first Glastonbury Festival 1970

    Morning all blue skies & sunny here, there’s been a smattering of overnight rain. 5L of windfall cider done yesterday, more to be made today possibly, although I have to finish the prep for the tree surgeon coming tomorrow.

    Morning.

    Grey. Very grey.

    Misty. Not so misty.

    Sunless. Quite sunless.

    Cooler, somewhat cooler at 19.4 deg in here.

    1010.5 mBar, 29.84 in Hg, 757.93 Torr, 73% RH.

    Sunday.

    And, it being Sunday, the wireless is silent.

    Sunday shopping trip to Tesco & Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised, & put away.

    £53 of petrol put in the car, which managed to go 207 miles on the last tankful.

    That would be about 6 months worth if I've worked it out correctly.

    Lunch: roast chicken with sausages, a corner yog (red yellow), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Managed to avoid the lump of crap on the garden path on two journeys back & forth, only to step in it inadvertantly on the 3rd trip.

    Fortunately the shoes come off before entry so most of it didn't come in with them.

    I see from the TV Times that there's an ep of "Am Dro" this evening, which will fill an otherwise tedious hour with some sarcastic commentary.

    In other other news, it transpires that I had the dvd of "Deep Impact (1998)" in one of the piles, so enduring all those adverts yesterday was rather pointless all in all.

    Weatherwise, it rained a bit from half nine to eleven, but the sun's out now & there's a blue sky with white fluffy clouds.

    Walk walked in the pleasant sunshine.

    Tea: scrambled egg and poached tomato (the 3rd of 3 seemed suitable to eat) on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich x2 on crusts of same, 2 x yogs, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    In other other other news, just found a bulged can of Heinz lentil & ham soup.

    I don't think I'll eat it.

    Still well in date: 01/2023.

    Entertainment: The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down: it's that irritating thing that shows bits & pieces of the season to come.

    Am Dro: Pontrhydfendigaid, Pembrokeshire, Dolgellau, Llanberis.

    Endeavour S8 E2 "Scherzo".
