    It came over a bit dark and threatening looking so I brought in the bed linen quick, finishing just as an unscheduled flurry of hail stones came down.

    It's now gone back to being sunny but I'm not putting things back out again, they're mostly dry anyway and just need the chill taken out before I put them away.

    I didn't get the towels out on the line but that was always a stretch target.

    The rain did indeed stop and the sun came out. Earlier than forecast too.

    As that coincided with the bed linen wash finishing, I have put it all out on the line for a darn good blow about.

    I may get the towels done too.

    EDIT: the fitted sheet had such a good blow about that it detached itself from the washing line. Fortunately landed somewhere that didn't render it dirty and has now been (hopefully) more securely reattached.

    Lunch: leftover Indian bits from Saturday

    It's been very variable this morning, going from sunny to downpour and back again several times. Not looking too bad at the moment, though it's pretty breezy

    Morning all

    I came to the conclusion the only bits I enjoyed was the parcel inspection & the dogs, so I've stopped watching the programmes.

    Morning.

    Damp. Following on from the rain, hail, & murrain of beasts earlier.

    Blue sky in parts.

    Sunny.

    Chilly in here at 14 deg, 12.5 deg in the kitchen & leanto.

    1005 mBar, 29.6776 in Hg, 753.81199 Torr, 14.576 psi, (down from 1020 last night), 77% RH (GDR hair), 71% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 17th of September 2019 I'd rescued & refurbished the toasting fork from next door which had been consigned to a bin bag down in the carport. It took a lot of rust killer to remove the rust. Dunno why I bothered since there's nowhere to toast anything on an open fire in here. Might come in handy for a bonfire, I suppose. . Whereas NF was reading "Rats" by James Herbert, being grateful he hadn't done so during the earlier mouse infestation, while some bot feed had fed something about a game he'd worked on back in ye mysts of tyme of 1989. I don't think anything I worked on "professionally" in those days still exists. Nothing of mine to see there bar the empty sands reaching to infinity.

    Managed to remove the A700 from its position on a shelf without a) dropping it (it's fecking heavy) or b) doing my back in.

    Shelf now repurposed as a bookshelf.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked: returned just as the deluge of rain hail & murrain of beasts returned.

    Sun's out now.

    Lunch: scrambled egg etc.

    Entertainment: Y&Y waffling on about something. TWATO waffling on about Israel/Iran <click>.

    Veronica Mars S1 E10 "An Echolls Family Xmas": the Xmas ep with the stolen poker winnings.

    Tea: home made lentil soup found deep in the freezer. It was ok. Dunno how long it's been in there though.

    The Mentalist S2 E13 "Redline": the car dealership one.

    NCIS S20 E12 "Big Rig".

    Morning all

    Windy, Wet. Raining. Currently 11 degrees and that's the high for the day. Apparently, the rain will stop by 12 and the sun will come out after lunchtime. Barometer down to 1005 mBar.

    Didn't go into the office. Much disturbed sleep on account of the lingering illness and I generally couldn't be bothered. Only two weeks, two days left and I'm down to a max 3 day week (if another gig doesn't present itself sharpish).

    True. Rather scary to think these are the ones who presumably see themselves as a "people person"

    Morning denizens

    I have arisen to face the Apocalypse, it seems: thunder and lightning, heavy rain at a 45° angle, and pink blossom petals swirling around in the strong breeze like confetti

    Not very warm though at 7°C, and not getting past 10° later. The barometers are very much down at 991/999mB

    Off to have a look at the lightning map…

    The US border people were on this afternoon. Have they ever considered that it might be possible to perform their duties without being thoroughly obnoxious to everybody they come in contact with? Apparently not

    And the NZ police were, as usual, much more polite and even friendly, even to those who didn't deserve it

    Later: new Surgeons and a couple of old 24 Hours in A&E as there isn't a new one of that. And then I read another couple of chapters of Julia

    Monday again tomorrow. Oh well, get this week done and dusted and I have a whole week off

    Goodnight all

    I had neglected to remember I had asked HWMBO to strip the bed this morning and leave it airing. This is despite him also following my request to leave all the bed linen on the kitchen floor for me to deal with tomorrow.

    Therefore, the bed was made in a "just in time" fashion.

    Mowed the back lawn and decided to leave the front lawn for next weekend. Mum was happy as that's the one she stares at most of the day.

    As I was clearing up and putting things away, Mum then decided she wanted to go to Tesco. We had to go to the Tesco Express rather than the big Tesco due to Sunday trading hours and the time of day. However, they did have everything on her list bar the choc ices but she was happy to have a box of Magnums instead.

    Tedious drive home and got in shortly before HWMBO had to leave for the airport to go home.
