    Tea was oniony sausage casserole with chips and peas. Furthermore, the sausages were pork and apple ones, and it all turned out very nice

    Lunch: turkey soup with a crust of wholemeal

    I had to give a bit of a demo to a bunch of stakeholders this morning, showing how their existing forms post their data via our thing which gets it where it needs to go. One of them popped up and explained that a certain form had been replaced by a more complex one we didn't know about, the discovery on our project having been done well over a year ago. But I tried it anyway, and it worked! Quite reassuring, that

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    Windy.

    Chilly in here at 11.4 deg, 10.5 deg in the kitchen, 9 deg in the leanto, 5 deg in the saltinghouse.

    1010 mBar, 29.825 in Hg, 757.56 Torr, 14.6488 psi, (up from 998 last night), 75% RH (GDR hair), 62% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 2nd of September 2019 NF was back on the corned beef, while I was deleting "people you may know" with abandon and BlueSharp popped in.

    Shirts in the WM along with some cottons.

    Shirts out of the WM and pegged out on the line, one of the cottons going back in.

    Smalls in the WM along with one of the cottons.

    Smalls out of the WM & pegged out on the line.

    Cottons in the WM.

    Cottons out of the WM: the experiment with the one that went in 3 times didn't work.

    Cottons pegged out on the line & blowing well.

    The shirts are almost dry.

    Shirts blew off the line due to peg failure.

    House roughly vacced with the Vax that doesn't beat any more but seems to pick up ok.

    Lunch: scrambled egg etc.

    Entertainment: Y&Y. <click>

    Shopping trip to Morrisons done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

    Entertainment: Canadian customs thing with the usual gun toting septics.

    Oz customs thing. A lot of the usual: French guy with £80 for a 2 month stay: returned. British chap with a broken suitcase & traces of weed (miniscule) and coke (bit less miniscule): nothing found. Woman suspected of working on a tourist visa: back home.

    Walk (abbreviated) walked in the sunshine.

    Shirts & cottons roughly iRoned.

    Tea: soup etc.

    Entertainment: UFO Hunters: Todmorden Police UFO incident 1980. "Who do you think you are parking that UFO there? ET?".

    The Mentalist S1 E1. "Pilot". No pilots were involved in this episode.

    NCIS S20 E5. "Guardian".

    Possibly Car SOS. S11 E6 Porsche 911 Targa. That's been raced & hillclimbed. Oh Dear(tm).

    Well there we are, will the last person out of Neath please turn off the lights: Barclays closing (I've been waiting for this to happen), and M&S closing (ditto).

    On my way to the office for a day of delight

    Sunny start out with a bit of cloud hither and yon for texture. A bit warmer than yesterday morning at 4°C, with 8° due by lunchtime. The barometers are bouncing back at 999/1007mB

    After the usual Sunday diet of Canadian borders and NZ roads, this evening's viewing was the latest episode of Ambulance followed by an old episode of 24 Hours in A&E

    Apparently shifting stuff into the car then shifting it out again at the other end counts as exercise, for today all three rings on the watch have been closed

    I'm feeling pretty knackered though, after an early start and all that shifting and driving. So an early night seems in order

    Monday again tomorrow

    Goodnight all

    Lunch earlier was yet more corned beef sandwiches and crisps, though with wholemeal bread this time as I'd used up most of the white on the same in the last couple of days. That's the tin finished, at any rate

    And tea has been Scotch broth, as I wasn't that hungry after all the corned beef sandwiches

    It was the RSPCA that called in Monkey World and got the warrant, which the police were there to enforce (though not needed as the owner seems to have cooperated throughout). No idea what they were thinking of with the exhumation

    Home again after the journey south. I managed to fit more in the car than I thought I would initially, but had to leave a few bits; I'll get them next weekend, weather and such permitting.

    I am now the owner of not one but two canteens of silver cutlery, one from the 1970s, one of later vintage

    All a bit posh, but I suppose one has to keep up appearances

    More books, of course. No idea where to put them

    And something which I'd vaguely assumed must have gone to the tip donkey's years ago: my Dad's reel-to-reel tape recorder, a Stellaphone ST454 of early 1960s vintage. There's also a few tapes with it and, looking at the labels, it appears some of them have my Dad's BBC radio plays on them! As far as we know, even the BBC doesn't still have recordings of them, so I need to find somebody who digitises reel-to-reel tapes

    Afternoon all

    Sunny and warm, bit of a stiff breeze. Puddles from, I suspect, overnight rain. Currently 17 degrees with a high of 18 expected.

    Yesterday was a sunshine and showers type day. We went to the National Tile Museum. Date night started with cocktails followed by a very delicious dinner.

    Killing time out and about until it's time to head to the airport and come home.

    Morning.

    Wet.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Cold in here at 11.5 deg, 10.5 deg in the kitchen, 8.5 deg in the leanto.

    990 mBar, 29.2347 in Hg, 742.56 Torr, 14.358 psi, (down from 995 last night), 75% RH (GDR hair), 63% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 2nd of September 2019 there was mention of "The Second Sleep", whereas WTFH had a 25% discount on some insurance just for phoning the scamming bastards.

    And with that the mouthy **** on BH just went <click>

    Too dreary for a walk.

    Freecell score: 88%, running average: 86%.

    Lunch: baked spud etc.

    Entertainment: some curious poetry thing on The Food Programme (or that's what I took it to be from past experience).

    TWTW <click>

    How "we" starved 3 million people to death in 1943. <click> No doubt it was all down to that evil bastard Churchill again. . I'm not wasting my time to find out. I'm sure the Japanese would have done it much more effectively given the chance. .

    Canadian customs thing: all the usual plus two Hungarians with undeclared dogs. Plus undeclared meat rolls. And undeclared tins of dog food. And a septic caught with 3.3g of weed. Unusually, no guns. An African Grey Parrot: all good. Chap sailing his boat back to Canada stops at a buoy for breakfast: $1000 fine for not mooring at the customs dock immediately. Woman back from Jamaica caught with 6kg of coke in some repurposed knickers: no details on how long she got. Woman driving from NJ to Alaska with a pump shotgun: they found a pot that smelled of weed, but it was empty. Had to store the shotgun shells separately from the gun.

    NZ Highway Patrol: hadn't seen these two before.

    NZ Motorway Cops: repeat.

    The Mentalist. S1 E13 "Paint it red": the painting one that was missing last Monday.

    Am Dro: Llyncefni. Caernarfon including a nice ride on the little train. Llandaff to the National Museum in Cardiff. Carreg Cennen circular walk.

    The Mentalist S1 E14. "Crimson Casanova". The pickup artist one.

    And that's it. No more Mentalist for a while.

    Megadisasters. Noah's Flood. Hopefully without Benjamin Britten's fecking music.

    Euro customs Repeat of yesterday's not very inneresting offeringl

    Nice looking sunrise out there, with cloud in thin strips parallel to the horizon giving a nice banded gradient effect. Bit chilly though, with frost on the cars and the lawn: currently 1°C, getting to 8° by mid-afternoon. The barometers are up a little bit more at 985/993mB

    Off south shortly; aiming to beat the traffic, such as it is on a Sunday
