    Bit of a Gomorrah binge again tonight: S1E6 Roulette spagnola (TV Episode 2014), S1E7 Imma contro tutti (TV Episode 2014), and S1E8 La scheda bianca (TV Episode 2014)

    The decor of the house of the boss's family in this exhibits even worse taste than that of The Sopranos so, spotting something about "casa Savastano" in the credits, I turned to Google Translate's magic thing where you use the camera on your phone and it superimposes the translation over reality. This revealed that the house is a real property that was seized by the Italian government's office of seizing stuff from gangsters. I felt a degree of sympathy for the interior designers who were selected to do the work and couldn't dare tell the owners how execrably bad their ideas were, no matter how tactfully, but had to just do it as asked and then suffer the indignity of having to put it in their portfolio and pretend they were proud of it

    Also, lots of Naples appears to be a right dump

    Goodnight all

    I rather got into something I was working on and forgot to stop until HWMBO messaged me to say hello. I still faffed for a further 15 minutes, "making things tidy for the morning" before finally logging off around 9pm.

    I have found something to eat and done my Portuguese homework ready for tomorrow's class. I know I'll forget it all so I wrote down things in ways that remind of the pronunciation so I don't look a total idiot. Out of six people in the class, three are European (French, Spanish, Bulgarian) another has a Portuguese parent/grandparent and then there's two typical language illiterate Brits, of which I am one.

    Tea: chicken in red wine sauce with chips and peas

    Accompanied by a bit of Traffic Cops

    Feeling a bit tired and run-down today, so I really didn't want to go for a walk

    But I finally cajoled myself into it, so: walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    Quite cold out, but no breeze to speak of so it was tolerable

    Lunch is a freshly baked small baguette from my part-baked stash in the freezer, (over) filled with bacon that needed using up.

    To upset everyone on the red vs brown sauce debate, I had sweet chilli sauce.

    Lunch: corned beef and crisp butties (sesame bloomer), thereby using up the rest of the small tin of corned beef

    The Kantar 2022 diary has arrived! They had announced their intention to send them but were having supplier issues which delayed their issue

    Anyway it's a completely different style to last years, without a daily fact, so we've not missed out on anything.

    Toast FTW!

    Bit of wholemeal toast, just to tide me over

    Morning all

    It's cloudy and dry again. Currently 4 degrees and the high will, once again, be 6. The barometer has dropped a tiny bit to 1033 mBar.

    Had a bit of a lie in but I'm not entirely sure I feel better for it. I suspect it'll be an early night tonight. Now to log in and see what outrage we've gotten from the business for pulling their go-live for the second time at the 11th hour. It doesn't exactly breed confidence in the process.

    Morning denizens

    Yet another grey day, not that warm at 3°C with a possible 4° later; barometers about the same at 1026/1034mB

    Quite a decent night's sleep was had
