    Grey overhead but looks lovely and clear over Devon.
    Clear over North Devon, maybe. Conditions heading towards the south coast are not quite as pleasant

    Today is day 7 of testing +ve - no symptoms anymore but being stuck indoors getting annoying now.
    That's unfortunate! I thought you don't need to isolate any more but I would still do it if I picked up the lurgy.

    Morning all

    Cloudy but dry. Currently 15 degrees with a high of 18 forecast. Low chance of rain. Barometer down to 1015 mBar.

    Yesterday afternoon was spent on the phone. With the long wait time for all 'bereavement' options selected on pensions and other bodies, I can only assume there's a lot of dead people about. This morning I am attempting to talk to the Probate Service to confirm my hunch that we don't need to do probate for my Dad because all his assets were in joint ownership with my Mum. Next, I will try again to contact Scottish Widows whose callback service didn't call me back yesterday.

    UPDATE: Probate only needed if Dad's pension companies ask for it. As the value they paid was negligible, I have my doubts as to what's left for my Mum to inherit.

    Morning denizens

    Another grey start out, though a bit milder at 14°C. Possible 18° later, but the barometers are heading rapidly down again at 1006/1014mB

    Morning.

    Grey.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Less chilly at 17 deg in here, 18 deg in the kitchen, 14 deg in the leanto.

    1011 mBar, 29.85 in Hg, 758.3 Torr, 14.663315 psi, (down from 1015 last night), 74% RH (down from 75%).

    Tuesday apparently.

    Meanwhile back in 15th January 2019 NF was coping with technofailures on the part of Virgin/NTL Hell and the black cat was too stupid to realise he could get into the tin shed through the foot square hole I'd left precisely for that purpose. .

    The night's sleep was terminated by Yet Another Finals type dream where I couldn't answer any of the questions despite having access to the interweb.

    Which in and of itself is odd since the interweb hadn't been invented back then, but there you go.

    And I could do without the current earworm of "The Boxer" by Simon & Garfunkle. It even permeates my dreams FFS.

    Trying some Hawkwind in a no doubt vain attempt to shift the above: "Assault & Battery" and "The Psychedelic Warlords (Disappear in smoke)" seems to help a little.

    <hiatus> As it did for a while but it's back to S&G now FFS.

    Shopping trip to Tesco accomplished in the dry: done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

    Yet more of the crap from next door duly processed: who'd have thunk that Maltesers 6 or 7 years past BBE would look unmistakably like a turd?

    There's now two buckets with 30L of mostly chocolate awaiting next week's recycling since it won't go on Thursday.

    It's raining.

    Lunch: baked potato with cheese and baked beans, red corner yog, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast (one was sunflower & pumpkin seed, the other soya & linseed), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: silence as the wireless went <click> when TWAO came on, it being full of lying Tory bastards.

    The car earlier was a Mustang 5 litre V8, though the show did start off as if it was going to be a clip show. They shouldn't change things that way for no good reason

    Then the opal hunters faced various problems.

    Some of the motorway police show that lacks focus and then a bit of old Police Interceptors accompanied the dining experience :

    And finally the gold hunters also faced various problems, though they all managed to find enough to keep going, as they usually do

    Goodnight all

    Tea has been peppery sausage & onion casserole with chips and peas, and was very tasty indeed

    Cloudy but dry. Currently 9 degrees with a high of 18 expected. Sun is scheduled to break through the cloud this morning before disappearing back under its blanket later in the day. Barometer up to 1023 mBar.

    HWMBO arrives this afternoon as he decided on the spur of the moment on Friday to visit for a few days.
